I did a bit of freelance webdesign myself. I would say if you really good at it stick with it. The internet is filled with crappy websites. So make your own really professionally looking website, have a portfolio in it and just start hunting shitty websites and cold email them. Stating why they site is shit for example: non-responsive- bad layout, etc and what you can do to improve this and why they should choose you. That's great to hear.
