    First create your own website which should look impressive - then create your portfolio of websites - which you should highlight on your website. If you send a letter like that without even giving reference to your business website, it surely will go to trash can !

    Just got your Private message. I'll add you now, although emails are a better way of getting hold of me

    Also...

    'more traffic, business and accessibility'

    I would possibly change this to something that would spark more interest with a business owner...

    'increase your customer numbers', 'increase your profits'

    I think 500 is a good minimum as well. If you're serious about building a business, you have to stop thinking like a freelancer. You can't just take any job just because it's some money in your pocket. I use to have the same mentality as well and I thought if I raised my prices I'd have no clients. Long story short, I now have a $2K a month minimum and the clientele I have has completely changed. Went from local small businesses to larger companies that have multiple locations and sell products/services nation/world wide.

    Like others have also said, make sure your branding is on point. Do not waste your time emailing potential clients until you look reputable. Try to get a couple social media accounts looking good too.

    $2m? what does the m mean


    Hey! So It's been up and down for me. This week I was officially made redundant, got a job offer else where just to try and keep me alive!

    I will be getting back to this asap, I've just sorted out web hosting. I'm never going back to Godaddy, they used to be fine for me but that's stopped me from even developing the live-site content.

    I've been following a lot of businesses on Google+ I also got the Google Business Page setup with my first review!

    I'm slowly getting back into it after this hell of a week. This really needs to kick off now as my financial state is down the crapper.

    No new clients as such, I have however found a small business that's not doing great with On-page SEO and the website is awful. I've been trying to draft an email but I don't want to seem rude.

    Thanks for keeping an eye on me :)

    Start with your plan and see what happens, remember no matter what anyone says, it's all depend on your hard work to get what you desired.
