How would you approach website to generate clients?

4 replies
Curious how you guys would go about cold approaching websites for work. My idea is this:

I'm trying to specialize in shopify development, so I was thinking of cold emailing stores and offering to do something minor for free. Then I could offer some custom development if I saw a way for them to make more money with it. And of course follow up regularly from there.

How have established developers built clients online (offline isn't an option as I'm in a 3rd world country)?

    Rather than cold emailing them, maybe try finding Shopify owners on LinkedIn or other social media, introducing yourself and building a relationship that way.

    If you have any hobbies or interests, you could try specifically targetting store owners selling products related to those interests. That way there's some common ground for you to build that relationship on.
