    I have been using this simple footprint for a while now to find new web design clients. Type this into google:

    "website under construction" + city

    Email them offering your services. Simple :)

    True, it also helps me avoid call calling. Never really had any success randomly calling up companies. I also find it much easier to get everything down in an email.

    Does not mean that some web designer is already "on this job"?

    Most of the time when a website is under construction they already have a web designer working on it. They're just waiting for the site to go live once the designer/developer is done.

    Yeah I agree. Also you would have a better conversion if you called the businesses and asked them about their website but I understand it's not for everyone.

    Not always the case, sometimes emailing a company can be far more effective. Simply because it allows you to get everything that you want to say across to the user more easily and more efficiently.

    This 'method' is easily saturated and worked well for me at one point. I'm not really using it anymore because I get all my clients through word of mouth. But I'm guessing if you set the google search results to only show the last month then this could last alot longer.

    If you have access to scrapebox and setup a custom footprint with every city/town in the UK and run a harvest I can't see a reason why conversions wouldn't improve.

    Badabing Badaboom. STudying complicated stuff all the time so it's hard to see such simple concepts. It makes so much sense. Thanks.
