I really need your guidance.
My name is Tony and I am an English-French, French-English sworn translator.
My intention is to offer my services in translating client's books from English to French or vice versa. I am very good at what I do and I am fast in delivering my services. But the problem is I do not have clients. And I am not sure on what is the proper and effective way to go about getting clients.
What do you guys suggest?
Must I start offering my services free of charge to few people in order to build my portfolio and take it from there?
How can get clients on the net without having a big portfolio and without spending money on ads?
What must I do to brand myself and promote my services more effectively?
What would you do if you were in my place?
Thanks in advance for your kind assistance in pointing me in the right direction of acquiring clients for my book translation services.
