    Hey
    I am a 17 year old webdesigner
    But this question is not really SEO related. But the problem is. I know i create top quality costum designed websites & wordpress sites. But I am not able to find clients, I am working at the biggest webdesign company in a few weeks in my country but I want to make a extra money besides that. I have still alot of free time and I am not aloud to find clients in my country because the market is small. That is because our people don't see what internet marketing can do for their business.


    I am looking for clients who want a information page not too much backend coding (because I am not that good with php etc.)
    and for a goodlooking information page I charge only from 250$/Euro. So i'm not looking for the big companies.

    So yeah,
    Do you have any great tips to find international clients to work with me?


    Thankyou very much :D

    btw, i am not trying to sell anything to you but i am trying to get tips how to get people. And i hope this is posted right

    I have tried freelancer & 99designs. It didnt work. I will not work on freelance aites anymore. I charge 200$ minimum. People there want sites for 10$ or if they want to pay some indian dude says he does it for 10$ (i have nothing agianst them) so i dont get work
    I have also lost too much time on 99 designs
    I had a idea to contact the startup companies on on 99 designs but i camt contact them unless i have a min level: 5 account :( any other suggestions?

    Trying to get clients in another city or state is hard enough. Lot's of times your clients will like to meet in person unless you have a ton of references. I am not saying it won't work, just a bit tougher. If you are mass emailing, I would recommend including a video in your email to make it more personal and explain the situation.

    would you mind posting your website so we can take a look at it and at your portfolio, im looking forward to market a certain region for this industry and wouldn't mind having some sort of business associate

    Search for businesses online that have facebook pages but no website. Say search for "pet sitters and then "facebook"" and you'll get a list of FB pages about pet sitters. Look for pages that don't have websites. Message them directly and ask if they are interested in your services. $200 is okay for a website, but try to offer bonuses like 3 months of free hosting or email support. Heck you can give them an ebook about managing their own site.

    Well other option is to let them try the sweet before they bite! offer them a landing page for €25, show them how great is the idea to have online presence, and then charge them 225 or 200 for a professional site.

    Sign up at dribble and buy a premium account. Show off ur projects there!
    Going to do that soon myself, but to get popular, you will have to be very proffecional.

    Although, it's a great portfolio-showoff to get inspiration and motivation.

    Not sure how good your page designs are but 250€ for one page seems pretty expensive.

    You need to try freelancer sites for business.
