Getting Web Design Clients at the WordPress Web Designer Meetup Group in Auckland

It’s a week before I head back to the states and I figured I’d host a meetup.com group to see who is doing what and if I/we can’t help each other improve our efforts to secure more clients. (For any of you from the meeting, I posted a 25% code to the meetup group description. It’s 25kevin25 if you want to use it to save about $25 on the guide. I’ll let it go for two days. Enjoy!) It was held in the central library, a cool spot, for the WordPress Web Designer Meetup Group in Auckland. Here are the key frustrations from…

How Clay secured 2k in web design income in under an hour

One of the challenges freelancers face is closing the deal. Many proposals sit on the table and don’t get signed. And often it just takes a gentle reminder of how important your help is to the client’s business.

How Lauren Smith Gets Clients – Three Timeless Tips over 30 Years

Gah! Internet cut out on me on this great call. A side effect of traveling while working and my affinity towards fun, trendy coffee shops over co-working spaces.

Ken’s Roadmap Trick to Get Web Design Clients to Sign Up

Last night I had a Skype call with Ken Westgaard of KISSmedia as part of my continual research as to what real web designers are doing to find clients – what works and what doesn’t. I love the “roadmap” approach Ken uses to get web design clients to pay him more and ensure the close. It’s nothing short of genius and you’ll learn about it below. How he got his first client.
