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

What do you do?

The key is to focus on clients who need help just as fast.

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.

Upwork get’s hate but it is a consistent and reliable source of Squarespace jobs. I still work with clients who I first got on Upwork years ago. They’ll vary in quality but don’t believe the naysayers, they are there.

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

Facebook Groups

Facebook groups are a great way to find clients online. I’d recommend groups in the niche or industry your serve. And if you’re more of a generalist you’ll sometimes get clients from the following groups.

Paid traffic

Most freelancers shy away from paid traffic which is why I think it’s such an opportunity. I’ve run a few adwords campaigns that have been successful in generating leads. But it can be expensive if not properly targeted and optimized.

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 plus.

ASK

Referrals are always an excellent source for new leads. Let everyone you know, especially old clients, that you’re looking for work - and be specific.
