Selling Without Selling: Persuasive Communication for the Freelancer

Selling your services can be a daunting chore. But a simple, underused, and yet profound change to how you think about and approach business development can generate more work ... with less work. We’ll talk specifically about how to develop a process, ask great questions, listen, and provide solutions to specific problems that your clients really care about. 


Nick Weynand is TradeMark Media's founder, president, and strategy director.

Over the course of 17 years, Nick has grown his once-humble, dorm-room operation into the fastest-growing Web agency in Texas (Inc. 5000, 2016). Now, more than 25 expert Web designers, developers, marketers, and project managers produce world-class websites and applications from TradeMark’s headquarters in east Austin.

Nick regularly consults with enterprise businesses and large organizations––from Fortune 500 companies to global nonprofits and state agencies. Over the course of his career, Nick has provided digital strategy, design, and development services to more than 600 Web projects.

Admired for his unflappable commitment to his clients’ success––and his sharp insights into the worlds of Web design and development––Nick is often tapped to share his hard-earned wisdom across the industry.

He believes TradeMark has an obligation to make the Internet a better place by helping its clients solve problems. And, just as importantly, Nick is dedicated to the professional and personal growth of the TradeMark team.

Nick spends his free time with his family––his wife, Courtney; his two children, Eisley and Everett; and their dog, Heidi. When not cooking, reading, or playing with the kids outside, Nick is usually found volunteering for local nonprofit organizations.
