Getting Business from Websites

First of all you need to build a good site with relevant inromation on what are the services you are going to offer. Will be much effective if you put links to some of your clients. And don't forget to optimize the site for Search Engines. Especially Google. Try to get more inbound links to your page. That's it. Almost done.

Try to promote it via friends first. You can't imagine there are a lot of people you know need this service.. I basically build my portfolio via word of mouths..

Not much freelance community in singapore. The issue is many freelancers are doing it as a short term thingy. I've been freelancing for almost 8 years and seen many many freelancers come & go.

The one main reason why i'm still doing it is: Passion.

My two-cents worth

Been reading this thread which seemed to have died out 7 years ago, and here I come to revive it.

Yes, many freelancers come and go. Many of my friends started out as me, and went on to do other things now. Only I'm standing. They started it because "anyone can do web design".

But, of course, it takes passion to keep running. I have that, and it has been my livelihood for the past 17 years.

Many companies still want freelance web developers. It's a win-win for both parties.

And if you're a potential client, try to avoid web development companies that outsources. Why? Because half the clients who call me tell me the same sob story before hiring me. "No response, delay in making changes, this part not working, programmer run away" and so on.

Long live freelance web development.
