Want to build long-lasting, engaging relationships with your clients?
Need a little appreciation and love along the way?
HUG A FREELANCER
MONTH IS FOR YOU!
We’re asking all Australian freelancers to come together with their clients to celebrate the positive impact freelancers have on their working lives.
Freelancers know how to fill the organisational gap, keeping the projects humming or taking the load off already stretched businesses. We’re savvy business owners, project managers and multi-skilled professionals who service businesses large and small every day.
Yet, we still don’t get the recognition and respect we deserve.
LET’S COME TOGETHER NOW
The Freelance Jungle is working with Rounded to create a supportive, respectful love fest between clients and freelancers.
We want to:
- Normalise positive communication between clients and freelancers
- Investigate the challenges we sometimes face with speaking the same language
- Highlight what it takes to have a positive working foundation
- Celebrate the work freelancers do for their clients
- Help overcome the hurdles on the way to client bliss
LET’S GET HUGGING
COMMUNITY & EVENTS
WHY HUG A FREELANCER?
We spent the last however long walking around in our hula hoop underpants, avoiding touch. Now is as good a time as any to rebuild the bridge with human contact.
Besides, if hugging your clients really isn’t your thing, you’re still welcome to appreciate the wonders of the freelance and client relationship in your own way.
We want to highlight YOU, the people who have the client skills to pay the bills. It’s your time to shout about your great client management skills, and the outrageous client expectations that drove you to build this particularly enviable skillset. We’re looking for the shining stars in client management via our social media and the real stories of what it’s like to freelance in Australia via client management survey.

ABOUT THE FREELANCE JUNGLE
The Freelance Jungle is a grassroots community that connects freelancers and reminds self-employed Australians (and New Zealanders) that stress has a productivity cost.
With a focus on self-care and raising the knowledge bar, the Freelance Jungle has been educating freelancers large and small since 2012. We have a long history in using the online community to help freelancers navigate the good, bad and the not so attractive sides of freelancing via our unique pay-what-you-can-afford educational programs and events.
ABOUT OUR PARTNER, ROUNDED
Rounded has a long tradition in helping freelancers and clients collaborate. A popular accounting software for freelancers and sole traders, Rounded helps keep our finances in tip-top condition through software, content, and now, advocating for recognition for the Australian freelance industry. As an Australian startup, more than half the team which runs their business day-to-day are freelancers. They are a long-standing, supportive partner of the Freelance Jungle. When we told them we were taking the relationship between client and freelancer to national level, they jumped at the chance to help out.
For the months of April and May, Rounded is joining the Freelance Jungle in promoting the HUG A FREELANCER campaign.
