So, the most common question everyone asks me is — What is “The Fastest & Easiest Way to Find High Paying Clients (Without Spending a Single Dime)?”

You can use this guide regardless of your financial status, or even if you lack the basic resources. These steps helped me in my initial days to pitch my clients and I have been using them to date.

So, without further ado, let’s dive in:

Facebook and Reddit Groups

Okay, so the first question that you must ask yourself is — Who is My Dream Buyer? & where are they Congregating Online?

Let me tell you its answer in 4 words — Facebook & Reddit Groups

Any market, activity or niche that you target will have a dedicated and proactive Facebook group around it.

The categories can range from fitness, entrepreneurship, or something completely different. Even if you plan to work as a social media manager, you would find a Facebook group for that too.

These groups aren’t just online groups, but they also exist in every single city and country of the world. And when you join these groups & become a member, you can notice people asking questions and seeking assistance for their issues even 1000s of times.

Another online platform that works on the same concept as Facebook is — Reddit. Known as the goldmine of information, Reddit has dedicated communities to help its users with their issues.

These Reddit communities are proactive and users post nearly 100s of questions here as well on an everyday basis.

So, the ultimate question is — how can you benefit from these groups?

The easiest trick is to engage with such people who post regular queries and seek your expertise on different topics.

Word of Caution: NEVER TRY TO PITCH THEM DIRECTLY.

I personally never trust people who simply comment on my post offering me the solution in return of XYZ bucks. Do you trust such kind of people?

To engage better with people who post queries, you first need to understand their query and offer them a genuine solution. A classic example of your solution can look something like this:

If you follow this practice consistently and help out 2–4 people each day, you will garner multiple leads within 1–2 weeks. Additionally, you might get your first high paying client without spending a single dime.

Leverage Google for Finding the Best High Paying Clients

Owing to multiple data breaches and other issues, people have stopped trusting Facebook for quite a while. Some even find Reddit a bit confusing. So, what’s the alternative route? The alternative path is to leverage on Google for “The Fastest & Easiest Way to Find High Paying Clients (Without Spending a Single Dime).”

Let’s assume you are a Video Creator with a specialization in E-commerce product videos and other similar stuff. One way to perform a relevant Google search is by typing “Top 100 E-commerce stores in {name of your target country}”

Once Google lists down the search results and you find a relevant article about all the top 100 E-commerce stores in your area, what’s your next line-of-action? You go ahead with the list and publish it as a job request on platforms like Freelancer, Upwork, etc.

You hire an individual to scrap all the 100 websites and find the ‘Name’, ‘E-mail ID’ and ‘Website URL’ and arrange it sequentially in an Excel file. Hiring someone else is always a better option as it’s cheaper and doesn’t cost you more than $10 — $20.

Once the Excel file is ready, you can start e-mailing these business organizations with your best offer and subsequently run a follow-up. Within a few days/weeks, you would start getting a response and people will start asking you for quotations and help.

When you start gaining clients and your cash-flow becomes steady and predictable, start advertising your business via Google Ads or Facebook Ads. Require some assistance on Google or Facebook Ads, feel free to connect with me and we will guide you on the right path.

Blogging on your website and sharing the content piece across channels is the best way to start. As per statistics, nearly 82 percent of marketers who blog report positive ROI from their marketing efforts.

However, as a freelancer trying to stand out from the ever-growing crowd, you need to go the extra mile and create a robust content creation strategy. Your marketing strategy should allow you to produce content in different ways to master the “BE Everywhere” approach and engage better with your target audience.

Often people ask me — “How long will I take to gain clients using your hacks?” I can never predict the timeline as it isn’t fixed but is dependent on various factors like — your niche, your marketing efforts, etc.

Try building a positive online reputation & make your network strong enough so that clients find you automatically. The more you engage with people via online communities, the more they will start knowing you and trust you. As is said in the sales domain:
