Over three years ago (wow, really!?), I made the jump into the freelance world. My first client was my current job at the time, and from there I had to figure out how to find new clients to on-board. At one point, I had so much work, I had to hire help, which is any freelancers dream, right?
The hardest part about freelancing, for me, was finding clients. Sure, I had a great first-client to kick things off, but from there I needed to gather more to make sure I could continue paying my bills, taxes, and business expenses. Plus, if I wasn’t making more money than my corporate job, what was the point of all this?
After being at it for about three years now (with one small stint in a full-time gig that caused me to hit financial rock-bottom), I have figured out where and how to find clients – who will actually pay me.
Although my industry is digital marketing, you can use my list to find clients no matter what your industry or expertise is.
