Let me guess: since you started freelancing, you’ve experimented with nearly every method of finding clients. You’ve poured hours into job sites, cold-emailing potential clients every day, walking into offices, passing out your business cards – you’ve tried it all at least once.
It’s hard work trying to make it on your own, and it takes a lot of hustle.
Word of mouth and cold-emailing may be the most effective methods of finding clients when you’re starting out, but they never guarantee work. If anything, it’s a lot of wasted time that leads to dead-ends or no replies.
