But I have always been kind of lucky finding clients. I have always focused on pure white hat SEO and have worked with people who have long term business plans. So one client could last me nearly a year. And many of my clients would then refer me to friends who then became my new clients.
However my luck has run out, and I cannot find any more clients my way. So I am looking elsewhere. I checked out the WF "Warriors for Hire" section, and it's just full to the brim of people looking for "link blasts" which will eventually turn their business to dust (I have been doing this long enough to watch it happen).
I also signed up on oDesk and applied to some jobs, but most of the jobs go to people working for $3 an hour? How can you trust your entire business in the hands of someone willing to work for that little?
One guy is looking for someone to pretty much entirely run his on-line store, something I have a lot of experience in, yet he hires a person who is willing to work for pennies. How can they see that ending well?
Anyway, my point is how do you find clients interested in good quality authentic white hat SEO, and who are willing to pay the price for it?
