How to Start Your Own
Freelance Design Business?
- Part 7

 


Getting Business As A Designer


Are you ready to get out there and start getting your first client? How should you go about it? The most obvious way, of course, is through freelance sites such as:

http://www.upwork.com
http://www.freelancer.com
http://www.toptal.com


Start by filling out your profile, including as many samples of your work as possible. It is not a waste of time to make the most complete profile possible. Don't forget, it is the only thing you have to get hired until you get some positive feedback.


It is true that there is a lot of competition on the freelance sites. It is the complete profile, that sets you apart from your competitors. And as we discussed before, specializing in one particular area, is what is going to help you.

 

 

 

 


When you are just getting started, contests are another great way to improve your skill, while having a chance to make some money. You probably won’t win all the contests you enter. As a matter of fact, you may not even win a single one. But that is OK, they provide an invaluable opportunity to learn, grow, and practice. And if you do win, it is bonus money!


One of the biggest sites for design contests is:

http://www.99designs.com.


Online forums are possible places to find work, especially if you go where potential clients tend to hang out. For example, if you specialize in book covers, you might want to visit forums authors frequent. If you’re offering eCovers, you’d be better off visiting webmaster forums.


Make sure you follow the rules of the forums you visit. Some may not allow you to post ads for your service. Some may allow you to post a link to your portfolio in your signature, while others may not. Some may require a small payment before you can post.


This is the end of our series about Your Own Freelance Design Business. Hope is was useful. We wish you all the best with your new business!
