If you really would like to generate clients that have a high budget then you have to do your homework perfectly. There are millions of freelancers working on the sites like Fiverr.
When a buyer posts a job on Upwork, a lot of sellers are applying on there with price competition. Or marketplaces like Fiverr, freelancers often offer their services at very lower prices.
How come you could get high-paying clients among those lower-priced gigs?
Well, read this post, and I’m sure you’re gonna get some great tips that might help you to get the best clients in your industry.
When I started my career working on Fiverr, you know I couldn’t make more than $10k a year. There are a lot of freelancers still making decent money thats true, but still, it’s not so easy among those highly competitive marketplaces.
- Be the best in your industry
It’s true that you need really a great experience in your industry in order to attract the ideal clients.
- Single Topic
Focus on only one topic that you’re super content with. And create your own brand. Do not work on several niches. Because you only have 24 hours to run.
- Dont depend on the marketplaces
Don’t make the marketplace only of your clients’ sources. Stop depending on only marketplace clients and get your own clients outside of the market. I know you would ask now how to get clients outside of the marketplaces.
- Create your own website
The marketplace is fine to start your career, but that shouldn’t be the main source, so creat your own website and present your business as your own company. When you have a website, that represents your business more seriously. So its really help to convert high-paying clients.
- Use the social media
Yes, choose the best one or two social media to network with people in the same industry. Connect new people everyday and dont offer them your service directly, thats not a good practice. Because the clients don’t want to buy something from a stranger.
- Connect, engage, convert
Do you know what I mean? First connect people, then engage them. How to engage? By creating informative posts on your social profile. lets say, you’re connecting people in LinkedIn, now you have to be a very well-known and trusted person in the industry, at least in your own connection.
Just keep posting with informative and problem-solving solutions. It could be videos, written posts, infographics, etc. Comment on others by providing valuable information and creating conversation.
This is how people notice you and they start reacting on your posts.
after a few weeks or months, I’m sure people will start telling you their problems. That a great signal indicating that you’re so close to the sale.
- Start taking clients
When someone asks for help, help them. If you’re in SEO industry, you can offer free audits and add some feedback with audit.
Most of the time Im getting clients through free audits. When you give your time and audit yourself and tell them what to do as feedback. Most of the time they will reward you by giving that project to you.
So getting high-paying clients, takes real value from you first. give value to the industry and you will be rewarded.
Yeah really. If you helped someone with your service, do not hesitate to create a post about the story how you helped them. This is another fantastic way to attract more people in your way.
If you would like to generate high-paying and long-term clients, you have to do these all. Also, you can read more blogs and follow me on quora, Im always writing about what I’m doing and what I got the most useful.
