Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I get access to the course?
This is a self-paced course but we do it in 9-week sessions so we recommend you follow along with our session and access our office hours for Q&A over the 9 weeks. Each module will drop on a weekly basis. You will have access to the Alumni Slack during this time. We do have the right to withdraw access to our Slack Channel any time after the 9 weeks. We usually give you continued access but we can't say forever. That's a very long time.
Are there payment plans?
Yes! You can join us for £165 and then pay another £165 after 30 days and 60 days. If you pay in full it's £447.
What makes this course different?
Client Quest is the only online freelancing course that combines video lessons, client management tools, downloadable PDFs, and access to the Motion Hatch community. We cover much more than just reaching out to clients via email. We explore techniques that will also bring your clients to you. You'll connect with other Motion Designers and get your questions answered by Hayley via live video Q&A. It's the perfect way to kickstart your freelance career.
Will Client Quest work for me?
If you are a freelance motion designer or want to jump into freelance and you want more consistent and better clients then it will work for you. The lessons in this course are based on Hayley's own experience as a freelance motion designer but it's also based on helping hundreds of motion designers find success in our Mograph Mastermind Program and from interviewing guest experts on our podcast.
How much time do I need to dedicate to this course?
The videos are short. We respect your time and only give you the content you need. There are assignments but you can easily fit them into your workday. We think 2-3 hours a week would be enough.
Who is this course for?
This course is for people who want to go freelance as a motion designer or who are already freelance and want a step by step guide to build a system for getting consistent clients. We cover how to reach out to direct clients as well as agencies.
