I wanted to know of a place where I could find clients who needed websites created from scratch. All the freelance sites just have jobs for tweaking current websites. I'm a professional when it comes to creating sites from scratch.
I'm creating a sample now for any of you to check out and once its completed for my clients to check out
<link snipped> (It's not live and is still under construction just began half an hour ago)
Go to freelancer.com awesome place to get all kinds of jobs
Ok will try that I always found it hard. I needed a sort of marketplace wherein I could provide the links of samples and clients could contact me to create sites for them.
Thanks will check it out.
I guess I'll use the freelancer.com marketplace
Will go ahead and create some sample sites now.
IMO the best place is to build your own professional website and advertise on it. The more someone likes what they see, the better chance you may have of them hiring you.
What is your hourly rate/site page rate and what is your satisfaction guarantee?
First, good to meet a fellow hack.
Second, getting clients is the same as any other business: sales/marketing. For Web or App development it is often touch and go.
1. A diverse portfolio is key.
-Which languages do you speak (css3, html5, RoR, Jquery, PHP)
-Which data types do you prefer (django, mysql, etc)
-Which eCom do you prefer
-Do you create both UI/UX, graphics, etc
-Do you build Web and Apps
3. Rates: Too high and it translates shoddy work at NYC agency prices. Too low translates to shoddy work at outsourced prices.
4. Do you work with SU's and are you willing to do Sweat Equity or Equity Splits.
5. Sell it Yourself via social networking. Chances are you know at least 12pp who need or want to build a website.
6. Never use Craigslist, etc. Terrible clients, terrible developers.
Especially #4. From the OP it seems you want to build fresh, not refurbish, yes? My recommendation, if you're solid and confident, would be to connect with StartUps and mingle with Angel Investors. You can probably build an MVP in 2-3 months and earn a nice paycheck as well as reputation and powerful portfolio.
Good chance your link will get snipped. May be a better idea to post the link to your profile page, and say that: "If you're interested in seeing what I have to offer, please go to my profile page. I have posted a link...."
Email me your rates... I have many, many domains and clients.
I take it that you build multi-paged sites also?
This is a relatively basic template that you are showing here.
Pearl I just completed it. It's a basic thing and not a template only for an indication of what I can do.
I'll contact you via a PM
I am interested in possibly branching out with my own site. I already checked out your profile and saw the rates.
Problem, due to certain curcimstances I am unable to hold a bank account. Is there a way to pay via money order etc....
I'm interested to work with you. please send me your email address and I could send you a portfolio of works. Thanks
I have my own website design and development company in New Delhi, India. We have work experience of more than 6 years in dynamic websites and we are expert in making responsive websites.
My hourly rate is: $23/hr
I will be obliged if you could provide me some work.
I work for B&W Global and we are looking for clients who are searching for website IT/development help. I know you post this 17 months ago but I wanted to reach out to you to see if you have clients who are looking for website IT/development.
I am a full time web designer and i started joining in contests (websites lie Hatchwise). After a month i browsed through the outsourcing websites like Freelancer and oDesk and got some projects. I later left those websites and started exploring SEO and Internet Marketing forums and since then, clients contacts me regularly. A simple portfolio website is useful too and will make you look professional. Goodluck!
I just checked profile and did not see anything about website rates. Most professional website creators also are familiar with SEO, which makes me question your skills, since you asked how to find potential customers.
You could advertise your web creation business by using google adwords to publicize your skills....

To get clients
1. Be an expert with a CMS like CMSMadeSimple.org or Drupal (Drupal.org)
2. Go on their forums and you will find hundreds of job offers
To get clients you can go for FIVERR, URBANCLAP and many do some searching you will definitely get results and also you can go website99.net a delhi based website designing company also providing leads to design and development of website and promote it.
Quite a few people posting spam on this thread. For those who actually respond with real info. This is a really really old thread and at the time I wanted to get into CSS and PHP without having to host a domain of my own. Gone a long way from here, and I did learn all this and more and did find these clients and still get requests. So for those who helped, thanks, but let this thread RIP now The next thing is learning C++ to simulate fluid flow, maybe I'll be back in 7 years to see my progress
I'm not sure if you are still looking for ideas, but a couple good places to get clients that weren't mentioned yet are Fiverr and Konker. It is free to signup on either site and you can advertise your services on these marketplaces. For what it is worth, someone above me mentioned creating your own site and advertising there. I think this is a great approach, it will prove that you know how to provide the service you are selling.
Hope it helps, cheers!
