5 ways to find Squarespace clients, fast

You’ve just started freelancing as a Squarespace designer and now you need clients.

What do you do?

The large majority of customers who need help with Squarespace have tried doing it themselves, or go into it knowing they’ll need an expert to help them get setup.

That’s where you come in.

There are several places you can readily find these people, and help them.

Use this as a quick start guide.

The first step is to join a freelance marketplace.

I started out on upwork and it was useful in landing my first handful of clients. Note that is not me below…

To increase your chances of getting a job on Upwork make your headline stand out. Be human. Don’t use a boilerplate response. Only respond to the jobs you’re excited about.

But besides Upwork or Toptal there are 2 platforms I recommend that specialize in connecting clients with Squarespace freelancers.

3. Facebook Groups

Facebook groups are a great way to find clients online. I’d recommend groups in the niche or industry you serve. For example if you make sites for Yoga studios it would make sense to be in groups for Yoga studio business owners.

If you want to find potential client who are specifically in need of Squarespace help, these groups are a good place to start.

The key is to be helpful. Don’t go in expecting to get clients today. But if you add value and help out when possible you’ll see returns over time.

4. Google ADWORDS

Most freelancers shy away from paid traffic which is why I think it’s such an opportunity. I’ve run several adwords campaigns that have gotten me clients, but it can be expensive if not properly targeted and optimized.

The screenshot above is from an adwords campaign I ran as an experiment to see if I could use adwords to get Squarespace clients. It generated 24 leads in 2 weeks with a $200 budget. The return on that $200 was at least 10x.

Start with a landing page that converts. Meaning you’re already getting clients organically through your site.

If that’s already working for you - leveling up to paid traffic can be a good way to get an influx of leads.

5. ASK

You never who may need your help if you don’t ask.

Start with your existing network - let them know specifically what to look out for. Don’t be vague.

And lastly, don’t get desperate.
