I started my business just about a year ago, so I`m still fresh at this. I guess the hardest part is informing people that you exist. So, I made a deal with a local radio station to trade web work for 300 one-minute spots. It`s a fair trade because I`ll be up late working on their sites and they`ll make more money with their new, professional look.
I`m also looking for new businesses who need a website and are willing to part with some of their profit in return for my work. E-commerce or subscription services would be ideal for this since I`d be able to track how much was sold. I believe that if I could get in with a dozen or so businesses and help them make money, I could receive a nice monthly paycheck myself to cushion the growing pains.
I have solutions for small businesses for as low as $200 and so far the largest site I`ve done was $2200.
I look forward to learning from all of you and providing what knowledge and advice I have.
