How to Get Freelance Clients Fast. The 2 Step Formula
Once upon a time, there was a little person named Sally. Sally had a dream of making money online, and freelancing was her way to go! But of course, to make money freelancing, Sally needed to learn how to get freelance clients fast.
Sally spent the next 2 weeks on Fiverr and Upwork, making an amazing portfolio, and posting amazing gigs.
But nobody noticed Sally. Nobody ever hired her for a job; now she felt like quitting.
In the make money online world, are you a Sally?
Everyone who freelances wants to get freelance clients fast, because clients = money!
But many of us are not so fortunate, and we end up getting almost zero clients in our first month.
But not all hope is lost! I was once a Sally too! And after implementing a two-step formula, I got over five $20 paying clients in a month.
How to Get Freelance Clients Fast!
Truth is, you don’t need to be on Fiverr or Upwork to get your first freelance clients. Whether you be a graphic designer, video editor, web designer or a writer, all you need is a way to get visibility.
So how do you get that visibility? I’ll show you the 2 step formula to getting freelance clients fast.
Step 1: Create a Website/Blog
As a freelancer, you’re going to need exposure before you get clients. One of the best ways to do that is with a blog.
Whether you’re a writer, coder, or a graphic designer, having a blog can potentially gain you a lot more clients. All you have to do is write posts related to your services, and promote your work every now and then. You’ll eventually get freelance clients.
Aside from the huge exposure blogging can give you, it is also possible to generate revenue directly from the blog. In fact, combining blogging with freelancing could potentially double, if not triple your revenue.
And if you don’t have a website for your service, you should get one now and actively promote it.
So where can you start a blog or build a website?

Step 2: Promoting on Social Media and Forums
Whether you have a website or not, you can still promote your service on social media.
There are tons of social media platforms that can help you grow your reach and help you get freelance clients.
For example, I used Pinterest, Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, and Instagram to land my first 5 clients (My portfolio also played an important role).
Here’s a pro tip. If you live in a small country, your country may have a local forum. If you want to get freelance clients, you can try promoting your offers on those forums (both free and paid).
