This one’s about our endless quest – How to get clients? Here is a good approach to starting off your freelance work and start getting clients. We all need paying clients, and especially if you’re just starting off, it’s hard to get them.

The 5 reasons why I suggest this approach (from the podcast)…

  • Have industry-specific suggestions and ideas
  • Understand the industry enough to upsell
  • Understand the SEO & marketing ins and outs
  • Have very valuable first-hand networking
  • Have secondary and tertiary fields

I really hope this sets you of in a good direction so you can get a good start in your web design journeys. Please

The title

Chevelle’s Door to Door Cannibals has a bit of frightening imagery, but it’s a kick ass song.
