Pls Help me FInding Good Clients

by alfred.doc 7 replies
Hi. I am alfred and a free lancer.

Until now, i am having difficulties finding good clients.

I can make quality articles but the thing is, since I am a newbie, even in Elance, no one is getting my service.

I have a client but he only contacts me once in a blue moon. So what can you suggest??

I am good at SEO writing, Article Writing, Blogs and Ebooks. Thank you..

ALfred

PS> I dont know if this is allowed but if not, please delete this thread. thank you.

    Since you're good at SEO writing, articles, etc.. create a site (or sites) to demonstrate that. Use your very own services to attract clients.

    You have the unique position of being much like a newspaper company or magazine. They use their own product to pitch their product: Advertising.

    There are, of course, other methods of promotion they use but you get the idea.

        You don't have to have a penny to your name to start a blog where you can showcase your talents...

        Blogger.com and Wordpress.com - Free
        Having a place to show your work to prospective clients - Priceless


        (Just be sure to place your contact info somewhere in the sidebar so that folks know you're available for hire )

        Alfred, buddy ... come on .... "Can't afford"?

        I'm not trying to be rude or insensitive but there are so many free options available it's not funny. Not being able to afford a web site is just not a valid reason to not do something.

        jcoolbaugh gave some great places to start.

        A google search for 'free web hosting' will keep you very busy with options.

        Bottom Line: You're good at SEO writing, articles, ebooks.... You hold the tools in your hand, young Jedi.

        That sounds like the guy sitting in the middle of a gold mine asking folks, "How do I find gold? I'm really good at digging, mining, and carrying stuff. Anybody got any ideas?"

        All that's left for you to do, Alfred, is just get started.

    Maybe...you are targeting the wrong niche for you.

    What is your native language?

    If you have a clear understanding of the English language and even a half coherent understanding of SEO writing.

    My suggestion to you is to seriously look into translation services with your writing talent.

    Content translation is much more lucrative(aka. a lot more money) then common article content writing and the possibilites of establishing yourself are far greater.
