Quick heads up: these tips are most handy if you're not a complete newbie in the field. Got some experience? Awesome.
Ditch just selling web design
Ditch just selling web design – become a marketing whiz. Figure out what people really want. It's not about selling a website; it's about solving their problems. Clients don't want a hammer; they want that nail in the wall. Think more sales, less marketing time, a bang for their marketing buck, a pro vibe, more leads – you get the drift.
LinkedIn is your buddy
Shoot a quick, personal message to anyone who connects with you. Let them know you're the go-to person for WordPress, websites, or whatever they need. It's simple, but it works 'cause not many folks bother.
