I recently re-discovered my passion for anything vintage, especially jewelry. This discovery sadly came about with the death of my dearly loved Mother. Trying to liquidate some of her estate awakened my passion. After many days of research I found a site where I could create a shop to sell some of her things. I soon realized that I too, had many vintage items which I no longer used. After many, many weeks of hard work, I finally had it up and running, although there is still much to be done. I find as time goes by, my passion grows. And last but not least, I also re-discovered my joy at spending time with much loved my family.

4 Sure-Fire Ways to Get More Freelance Clients… Pronto!

If you make a living freelancing you surely know that the one thing that keeps your income steady is finding new clients. Luckily for you, there are several ways to keep a steady stream of clients coming your way.

Below you’ll find a few of them:

1. Advertise in Ezines

There are many, many newsletters everywhere on the Internet that will accept advertising. The key is to purchase advertising in publications that reach your target market and create your ad to showcase your expertise. Don’t try to be everything to everyone or you won’t attract clients. Spreading yourself too thin will hurt rather than help you.

  • Ad Example of what NOT to Write: “Hire me to lighten your workload. I can do everything you don’t want to do. Let’s talk!”
  • Ad Example of what Works: “Are you ready to find more leads for your business? I’ll handle your ezine advertising campaign for you. No more searching for targeted ezines and no more writing and tracking your ads. I’ll handle it all for you. My clients experience a boost in subscribers after I complete their ezine advertising campaigns that will pay for my services. Check out my website for testimonials and free tips.”

Recommended Resource: Check out the Directory of Ezines to find Ezines you (or your client) can advertise in.

2. Write and Submit Articles

The key is to stay on topic. Don’t write and submit articles about health or pet care if your niche is online marketing. Present a problem in your article and then solve it. Make sure your author bio is very compelling so it will attract potential clients.

Recommended Resource: If you’ve never tried article marketing this is a good course to help you get started – Easy Article Marketing

3. Network where ‘Successful’ People Hang-out

A huge mistake Freelancers make is hanging out on forums where other people are struggling to make money. Instead of doing that, join a membership site for your target market and you’ll find yourself in the ‘inner circle’ so to speak.

Recommended Resource: The best place to meet new clients is live and in person. One such highly recommended event is NAMS.

4. Advertise at

One of the easiest ways to get your name in front of business owners looking for help is to join

Again, it’s crucial that you list your specialty in order to stand-out from the other service providers. But if you can find a problem that business owners face and offer to handle it for them, you’ll attract loyal clients who’ll continue to work with you on future projects.

Another highly respected website where business owners will post for freelancers to help them is

These are just a few of the ways you can boost your client base quickly. If you have some favorite methods that you use please feel free to share them below.
