As a remote freelance worker who is juggling multiple clients and projects, if there’s one thing you need to streamline your freelance business, it’s the ability to clearly communicate with your clients.
Whether it’s setting expectations, clarifying doubts or sharing project updates —maintaining regular communication leads to fewer misunderstandings and higher productivity.
But it’s not as straightforward as scheduling meetings. The question is: How are you communicating and what are you doing to convey your message clearly?
An effective tool you can use to improve client communication is mind maps.
A mind map is a diagram that lets you organize information visually. The main concept is placed at the center with supporting ideas branching off from it.
Let’s take a look at how freelancers can use mind maps to present ideas and improve client communication.
Most projects begin with a brainstorming session. The idea is to generate as many ideas and explore new possibilities along the way.
Whether you’re brainstorming alone or with your clients, it helps to use a brainstorm bubble map to document all those ideas and make associations.
Not only does this let you present ideas visually, it’s also a great way to run a focused brainstorming session.
