I advise startup and small business owners on what kind of developers to hire and I do screening interviews with the candidates so that the client gets the best person for the job.
My problem is that before I can start charging anyone, I need to build up a reputation for quality, and I need feedback from customers. So what I want to do is work for some clients for free. The problem is, I'm not sure how to market myself on this kind of trial basis. I haven't got my website up yet since I don't want to put up a big online presence before I have references from satisfied customers and so forth. That makes online advertising hard to do. How can I attract these free customers? I've got a good value prop since I'm helping people with their IT hiring for free, but I'm not sure what the best way is to get the word out. Any advice would be really helpful. Thanks. less
