Here’s the order I’d recommend you take when trying to get clients:
- Reach out to your connections first to see if they know anyone looking for your services and you can also post this on Linkedin so that your network can see this
- Using Upwork
- 1-on-1 Linkedin Cold Outreach Campaign to companies you know are hiring
- 1-on-1 Cold Email Outreach campaign (Although these people aren’t actively looking to hire, once it’s set up, this is automated so it can just run in the background for you while you handle your other outreach methods)
- Applying Directly to companies on job boards/1-on-1 Linkedin Cold Outreach Campaign to those that fit your target demographic but aren’t necessarily looking to hire
- 1-on-1 Instagram Cold Outreach to those that fit your target demographic but aren’t necessarily looking to hire
We’ll go in-depth on how to succeed in each of these areas in the following guides.
