These slogans are known as "taglines." A tagline is a sound bite that conveys your big promise to potential clients.
To come up with a brief, catchy tagline for your freelance business, start by thinking about the service you provide. Then, using a few words, describe what you can do for your client.
Your tagline will be a good example for your clients. When they see that you can get your own message across in a compelling way, they’ll know that you can do the same for them.
