Jake Jorgovan – blogger, designer, marketing expert, and the host of the Working Without Pants podcast – joins Bryce Bladon for a webinar to discuss how he finds new clients and project leads as a designer.
His client-finding technique isn’t an easy “get rich quick” scheme, but it did net him $20k his first year of using it. And those are sales just from this– it’s not including Jake’s other work and referrals.
“How do I find clients?”
Experienced or new, full-time or free-time, this is simple and actionable advice for anyone, at any stage of their career.
UPDATE: Shortly after our discussion, Jake launched Outbound Creative, a service that offers to do the work discussed in this webinar for you.
