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 ✨automagically✨ compressing business admin activities (invoicing, expense management, reporting, etc.) so they'll take no more than 10 minutes of your day. 


🤓 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 — 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 it’s Day 10,891 of being a freelancer.

In this guide, you'll learn:


👉 Which channels are best for finding new projects (Freelancer marketplaces aren't it, fam)

👉 The essential elements of a basic freelancer portfolio — no fancy website necessary

👉 How to plan and execute a successful client outreach campaign

👉 The best freelance communities to join by niche 

👉 Elevator, cold & warm pitch templates

👉 How to leave an online breadcrumb trail so the clients come to YOU instead

👉 How to transform new clients into anchor clients

👉 And much, much more…
