    I'm thinking of going to local businesses and building them websites for a couple hundred. ($200-300 since I need to build my portfolio)

    Anyone have experience with this? Is it worth my time?

    There is a whole forum on here dedicated to methods like this called offline marketing.

    This is actually how I started making money. $200-300 is right in the budget for a lot of small businesses like restaurants, contractors, etc. If you do wordpress, you can usually pop out a site in anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours meaning your hourly wage stays high.

    If you're near a city, or have a CL for your town; post an ad on there. Make sure you have a website of your own, that looks professional that you can drive the traffic to.
