  1. My best tactic for getting clients lies in two things; using a free-lancing service and a customer referral program.

    I use a service called Elance that gets me about 30% of my clients. This service is cheap to use and has certainly more than paid for itself over the years.

    My customer referral program gives clients a small amount off of their next bill for referring a new client to me. This it has gotten me another 10% of my business.

    Most of my other business comes from various places; forums or blogs that I’ve linked to. Once in a great while I will actually get someone who has stumbled across my website and gets me that way, but I wouldn’t call it an SEO success by any means, at least not yet.

    These ebooks could really be useful to me in boosting my business. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win them…struggling freelance designers need a break like this once in a while!

  2. Hello.

    As a web designer, When I see an existing website of a local business which is not serving them well, or maby has some problems with their code or SEO, I contact them and let them know whats wrong with their website, internet strategy and online presence, often offering some simple tips on how they could improove it, and offer them my business. Sometimes i’ll even do a quick redesign and send it to them. This doesnt work everytime, but they’ll be willing to listen, and once they look at their website after what ive told them, they feel the urge to redesign their website.

    Try to look for businesses that are already investing money in some kind of marketing, be it print material, flyers, radio and tv ads, etc. Because they’re the ones with the money. 

    Also, use your knowledge about a given industry or niche to make an initial contact and show that you know about their specific business.

  3. My best tactic so far was to be absolutely honest with what I can do, be passionate about it and create each site as it was for myself or better.

  4. My best tactic is creating a relationship and continuing to build that relationship into a client. I make sure head to the local Chamber meetings, Rotary Clubs, etc… These places are great for starting new business and personal relationships.

    By creating a true relationship with someone, I believe, you’re more likely to build a longer lasting client instead of a fly-by. Although there is value in fly-by clients, I’ve found I make more money off of my reoccurring client base, plus I have greater passion for making their company a success online, as I now have a personal interest in the matter!

  5. I have a freelance project and I to promote this project and get some clients I use mainly the following steps.

    1 – Clients don’t come to you only because you work on this area. You’ve got to chase the clients. Create accounts on common social media like facebook and linkedin, but create also on networks that’s dedicated to your area of expertise. Get yourself a twitter account and start following companies and other freelancers to see what’s being done. Send emails directly to possible clients but make sure your presentation letter is well done and try to get a meeting.

    2 – Don’t lie to clients. You have to be honest if you want no problems. Present your work and give tips to your clients that you might seem useful. Remember, it’s your expertise. Not theirs. If you lie to your clients, if you promise more that you can really do, then you’ll get problems sooner or later. Keep in mind that “mouth-to-mouth” is also a powerful tool. Don’t give them any reasons to talk trash about your work to anyone.

    3 – Give fair prizes and development times. Clients will also try to pay less and want all as soon as possible. Without using “techies” that they don’t understand, explain them well why you’re charging that price and why you need that time for development.

    4 – Be always available for your clients. You too have the right to free-times. Sometimes clients don’t understand that, but if you’re away from office, at least keep your cell on and be sure to read your emails sometimes.

    5 – Continuous support. The job is done? Maybe not. Be sure to give your client all the support they need. If you show them that you care and that you’re a good professional, then the next job is yours, no doubt about it.

    I’m sure that there’s much more I can do, but only with that strategy I acquired more than 10 clients in 9 months and those clients already got me the contacts for some friends of theirs that are in need of someone in my area.

    The cost of this strategy? 0,00€ 🙂

  6. My best tactic beleive it or not was direct mail.

    Step 1. I chose a section in the yellowpages where the clients would be easy to handle and typically did not need much for thier industry. I figured this would allow me to buuild sites pretty quickly and handle the volume I was expecting.

    step 2. Once I chose my section I scraped the section for 1000 business names and addresses. I excluded all of the popular chains and those that really would not be looking for a freelancer. I stuck to the Mom and Pop types. I know that sounds like a lot but with the right tools you can do this pretty quickly.

    step3. I designed a postcard layout specifically for the industry I was targeting. The postcard doubled as a coupon.

    step4. for ease of use: I formatted the names and address in excel, exported them into word (microsoft word has a label maker template for certain labels that you can buy at the store ( I chose the Avery version). I then printed the labels and slaped them (neatly placed) on the postcards…about 3 hours total.

    step 5. I mailed 100 postcards a day for 10 days (not on thursdays as it will get to the business on saturday and get lost in the stack of mail and bills they recieve on monday.

    step6. I prepared for a lot of calls by using and excel spread sheet to log each call. make sure you get the name, number and EMAIL ADDRESS. this is very important as you will let them know that you will email them or ask them to go to your contact page and email you. Let them know you will be sending them some info periodically. This way you can use mail chimp or any other email system to mail them newsletters and to drum up new business during slow periods.

    step 7. I waited…and waited…and waited. By the following friday after the last batch (2 and a half weeks) I had over 40 calls and got 8 new clients.

    Keep in mind that it cost me a total of $472 to do all of this ( I now can get it done cheaper) but I charge well over twice that for one project. You do the math. This is what I am sticking to…

    Oh…I forgot to mention that most of the clients I have at this very moment are referals from the clients I obtained from the direct mail campaign.

  7. Sincerity and hard work! I find these are the key elements of the relationship with a client. It has always worked brilliantly for me.

  8. Within my 3 years of being an active freelancer, one of the most successful tactics I used was understanding my clients’ wants, needs and issues so that I can connect with them.

    Due to the lack of managing my customers’ relationship, I have learned that a freelancer should act out the role of a mentor in some cases. Some clients need that sense of concern for their business from the freelancer, thus far prompting the client to trust and rely on doing business with you.

    In a nutshell, our focus should be in serving the customer rather than the customer serving us.

  9. Hello everyone.
    I m a freelance Web designer. My tactic for getting clients is fairly simple. In todays day everyone is available on the social networks such as facebook etc (i mainly target facebook and linkedin).
    So all i do is periodically promote myself and my work on their groups and other post section. Also i reply to posts asking for services that i can offer.

  10. The most successful thing I ever did wa give a presentation describing how we developed the product and how they could do the same. I sold more than 80% of the room. One person even went back to her boss and said she would not build their own, because we were so far ahead and cheaper.
