I get clients one of just two ways– at live events and through referrals.
And there’s a rarely-used trick to making sure that referral pipeline never runs dry.
I reveal the secret in this video:

P.S. Finding clients as a solo freelancer doesn’t have to be a constant struggle.
My friend Matt Inglot is a great example of this. His tiny agency (him and a few part-time employees/contractors) receives far more leads than they can possibly take on. He ends up turning down most clients, and only accepts the ones whose projects are an amazing fit for his service and who are willing to pay his premium rates.
What I love about Matt’s approach is that it has nothing to do with chasing the latest fad or trying to learn and execute 10 different tactics (that are all going to be outdated in a few years).
Instead Matt focuses on getting a few critical pieces of finding clients right, and then following simple steps repeatedly to make sure that clients are coming through the door. That’s a big part of the reason I have invited Matt to share his process with the Business of Copy community. Matt will be holding a free live training for us on “How to consistently win freelance clients” on June 11 at 1p.m. Eastern.
On this live training you will learn:
- How the heck to get in front of your ideal client. (HINT: The first step is figuring out who your ideal client even is)
- 5 hours a week that you can transform into a consistent stream of leads year-round.
- The one way (besides whiskey and lotion) to get off the treadmill of constantly searching for more work.
