Web Designer Tip: Ask For Referrals


simpsons_handshakeWorking freelance often means you work on a great number of design projects per year, undertaking all or just a part of the work. Take advantage of past clients and ask them directly if they can refer anybody for you, I find a phone call is most effective but a quick email stating your looking for new clients works too.
