The Ultimate Guide to Finding Clients

How to Go Slow to Reach Your Goals Faster

At Xolo, our mission is to make solopreneurship a magical experience by โœจautomagicallyโœจ compressing business admin activities (invoicing, expense management, reporting, etc.) so they'll take no more than 10 minutes of your day. 


๐Ÿค“ For context, most freelancers and solopreneurs lose about 2 full working days a month to these unbearable/unbillable business to-dos.


But we've learned that business administration isn't the only unappealing part of being an independent โ€” finding clients is right up there, too!


So we decided to commission one of the best freelancers we know to consult a few of the best freelancers she knows, and then write a guide about their collective best practices for finding and keeping clients. Even if today is Day 1 of being a freelancer. But also if itโ€™s Day 10,891 of being a freelancer.

In this guide, you'll learn:


๐Ÿ‘‰ Which channels are best for finding new projects (Freelancer marketplaces aren't it, fam)

๐Ÿ‘‰ The essential elements of a basic freelancer portfolio โ€” no fancy website necessary

๐Ÿ‘‰ How to plan and execute a successful client outreach campaign

๐Ÿ‘‰ The best freelance communities to join by niche 

๐Ÿ‘‰ Elevator, cold & warm pitch templates

๐Ÿ‘‰ How to leave an online breadcrumb trail so the clients come to YOU instead

๐Ÿ‘‰ How to transform new clients into anchor clients

๐Ÿ‘‰ And much, much moreโ€ฆ
