Hello everyone, Firstly a big fat thank you to the whole community and the mods of this sub hq overview. Coming straight to my issue: I’m going through some tough financial issues and want to explore the freelance route to to make money and get out of this situation. Below are the two skills which I’d want to provide, Running Facebook ads: i did Facebook ads for a local business coach. I wrote the ad copy, prepared the creatives, scheduled and ran these ads. I don’t see myself as an expert Facebook ads guy yet but I can definitely create campaigns and look after them with a decent understanding about types of ads, pixels, audiences, funnels, RoI and other metrics. Running email campaigns: I also managed the email campaigns for the same person. I wrote all the emails, prepared custom sequences for different set of leads, scheduled and monitored these email campaigns. I used Aweber for these activities. My questions are, 1) How do I get started? I can’t afford a website at this stage, what other resources should I be putting together here? 2) How do I get my first customer? I do have profiles on upwork and Fiverr but haven’t seen anything coming out of them yet. Where else should I be looking? Have a great day everyone. Your time is much appreciated. Thanks. P.S: I’ve chosen these two skills because as per my limited research these skills can pay me slightly better than writing web content which I’ve done as well. All I’m looking for are some pointers from successful freelancers who were in the same situation as mine when they started their journey.
