    Hey BHW,

    I was selling my services for years, and I got a good experience in freelancing. And I was always finding new ways to find clients for my freelancing services.

    This day, I will show a method that works great with design services (it might work for other services using different approach, but I'll try to keep this method specific and simple).

    I know that there is a lot lf talented designers here in BHW, some of them are already making a decent amount of money. But, there is other designers who are struggling to get clients and orders, as most of them just post gigs in Fiverr and they never get a sale.

    I'd say that actually, with this big competition in Fiverr, Upwork... You can't just post gigs there and get orders, even if you boost your gigs with posetive reviews...

    Here is a small strategy that you can use to sell your design (specially logos, and fb covers):
    • Create a new site using wix, strikingly... Or any free site builder
    • Choose a template that works for portfolio...
    • Put a bio there giving more information about you or your business
    • Put the best logos you made in your career
    • Put in the end a method to contact you or put you Fiverr gig if you're willing to sell using a platform such as Fiverr...
    Now you have the portfolio, but no one will see it unless you do some promotion, right? But don't worry it won't cost anything, you will be promoting your services for free. How? Follow me:
    1. Use a services that scrape IG influencers in specific niches, or search for them manually. Also, collect a list of fb page in a specific niche. +(You can also do that with fb groups and Pinterest boards... But I never tried them)
    2. Contact the pages and say that you will make a free logo for them, but they should give you a credit and post your link. Make a message that you will use to contact them and just do few edits before sending it to each page.
    3. You will get a good amount lf pages accepting the offer. And after the post your link and give you a credit. You will start getting traffic and clients. Also, some of them will re-contact you for designs, but the second time you will ask them for money (just offer a good price for them in the 1st time)
    The legend was here. Bye!:p

    Agree on that, but it's good for someone who knows logo designing, but struggling to find clients.

    Yes, it's a hard process and it takes time, but it will help to get new clients if you're starting from scratch.

    Also, after getting these credits from all these pages, you will be trusted fromnew clients as you can add each credit to your portfolio.

    Wrong.

    Smart work always pays off.

    Hard work only sometimes pays off.

    This method is full of flaws:
    • Many influencers or FB pages don't own websites.
    • Most influencers or FB pages who own websites will already have a logo.
    • Even if you find 100 prospects, it will mean to communicate with 100 prospects and create 100 logos for free and do revisions etc. -> sounds like working a month for free
    • Even with 100 links, you still won't rank for "buy logos" or whatever unless you live in a country with only 100k inhabitants -> still no sales

    Bro, you got it wrong. Please re-read the method to understand it as you didn't understand how does it work.

    • First, I'm not saying that those people should have a website, you can make a logo for the page itself (i.e most meme pages want their personal logo to watermark it in new memes), and you can design cover pics. And if they have a website, that's a plus as you will get a link your portfolio (SEO benefit+traffic)
    • Simply, ignore all the accounts that already have good designs
    • That's it! But, this method is for people who are struggling to get clients. + You can target a specific niche (i.e weed) and make a template (weed logo), and then you will do each time just few changes (SOLVED!)
    • We are not talking about ranking here, you will get traffic + more trust from clients (higher convertion rate)

    I will have to agree - the more successful/busier/profitable influencers, page owners etc. will almost always already have a good logo; and when there are Fiverr types around who will do a logo for $25 o less (or the newly upcoming automated logo design sites), most private parties won't pay much of anything these days - and bigger companies with actual budgets probably won't be looking at Insta or Facebook for professional design help. The "legend" missed on this one

    If you're a good designer, they may accept even if they have already a logo.
    The first time I tried this method, I was in fb group of designers and they already have a good cover picture (it's a group of designers with more than 30K member). But, I paid one of my team to create a HQ cover (it was a great one by all meanings). And then contacted the admin, and he posted the cover pic with my portfolio/behance link + credit to my account.

    Good idea, that method of promotion could work with other services too.

    Add a Fiverr affiliate link to your Fiverr gig from the Wix/whatever site and you'll get $25 per sign up that makes a purchase. Get double the money! I did this a while back, earned 40% extra since my traffic came from outside of Fiverr, so I added my affiliate link to my own gig. :D

    Deliver good content first and then harvest later is always a good method. Thanks OP!

    I like this. Get the influencers to drive traffic for you. Beginning stages need some manual work, but after you will get good flow of traffic. Can always upsell other services you see fit or build up email list. Dope method OP.
