The Best Way to Find Clients Online in the Short Term
Best Way of Finding Clients Online
From my experience in marketing I’ve dabbled with all sorts of methods of attracting clients online. The single most effective method that worked for me quickly was making a Kijiji ad and positioning myself on quality and longevity rather than price. I’ve even stated that my prices could range anywhere from $900 CAD to $1600 CAD openly, and I still received inquiries quickly while there were others on the platform that offered websites for $300 dollars.
Positioning Yourself on Kijiji
The key to this is to explain the value that you’re offering in simplicity and to talk about what you can do for the client without going into too much technical detail. I positioned myself on Kijiji based on creating completely custom designs with custom written code. In addition to website speed and security, I also deliver branding for the organization that will attract their ideal target audience. This creates a first stepping stone to attract visitors to your online presence.
With Kijiji you have to be careful however, because if you don’t position yourself well, you may be facing unreasonable requests and may attract people that may be difficult to work with. It’s all about setting expectations at the beginning so that you and your client know what to expect. Managing expectations is a big part of freelancing and that is what Stefan Mischook talk about as well in his online videos whom I follow on YouTube.
My Kijiji Ad
This is how I position myself on Kijiji, this is how I write my ad:
