    Has anyone done the following:


    Put an ad on Newspaper saying something along the lines of how you can design something for people if they don't have a site? Perhaps something for a new company, a hair salon, a spa, a small business?

    I'm thinking of putting up an ad in the newspaper.. Anyone know if its worth it? Or it's just a waste of time?


    [not sure how to turn this blackhat yet lol, I just gotta make money]

    Don't worry, you can make whitehat income as well :).

    In my experience in web development/design everything is a matter of reputation. Get an impressive portfolio and you will be raking in questions for building a site. Do the first few rather cheap and start adding a little bit extra every time.

    Also lots of developers are losing out on quite a lot of money by not referring their clients to ad networks, Adwords/Adsense, hosting deals, ... You just need some interesting affiliate programs that offer 2nd tier earning and your customer might turn into residual income.

    Posting in newspapers can be very lucrative, as long as your copy skills are intact.

    Im a web designer and yes I have put an ad in the local newspaper and I just dident really receive the response I was hoping. I got a few calls but they lead no where and cost me my time. Put it this way, if you wanted a web page designed where would you look? would you run to the newspaper and look in the classifieds or would you search on the internet? Maybe take the money you wanted to invest in the newspaper ad and use it for google adwords. I think the newspaper is a waste of money unless you are offering an indemand consumer product and not a product related to buisnesses
