How to find clients: the age-old question

A common struggle for freelancers and solo designers is how to find work that is creatively satisfying, feels like you’re making a great contribution, and pays well. 

Designers email me sometimes, asking things like:

  • Where can I find more clients?
  • Is my portfolio good enough or large enough?
  • Should I work for free or cheap just to get started?
  • How do I get clients who will pay better?

I made an online course answering these and other questions for freelancers. It’s called Client Finder, and it covers the methods I’ve been using for over 10 years of running my own design business. For me, work is rewarding, steady, and more plentiful than I have time to take on. Here’s how to get there!
