My freebie turned to a paying client

I designed a wordpress website for free for a realtor and he seemed to like it. He had tried newspaper ads before and he said he never got anything from it.

He understands the power of facebook and linkedin and already had a facebook page but he said he is so busy he doesn't have time to properly use both. So he asked me to help him with it and eventually I got my first cheque for a facebook and linkedin job. He paid 100% upfront - $500 for both. I told him maintenance will come at a cost per month and he seems to be okay with that. We are yet to negotiate that.

I know people get paid more for these services, but I am just starting out and all I need right now is to get satisfied customers that will be very happy to refer my services.

This realtor was just someone I sent an e-mail to in my current network. It took almost 3 months to get him to this stage but it was worth it. I am going to start talking to business people I know. I'll advise newbies to do the same.

Now I need help to blow this out of the park.. Any recommendations will be helpful.

At this point I am kind of leaning towards social media management and list management as my main business. They have potential for recurring income and it looks like something I would enjoy doing.

I bought I lot of WSO's here, some great, some not so great. But without the knowlege I got here I would never have registered a business, I would never have had the opportunity that I have right now.

Thanks to everyone that has shared and continue to share their wealth of experience and knowledge here.

You are all blessed.
