Building Your Service Business with Job Sites

Whether you’re a Virtual Assistant, Photographer, graphic designer, writer or more, a job site is a great way to build your business. Here’s how:

Job sites enable service providers to fill in the gaps. Even service professionals that have been in business for a long time can and do have gaps in work. Maybe it’s related to the season, a holiday, or simply a lull in activity. A freelance job site or job site aggregator is a great way to pick up a few new clients.

Job site are also a great way to create a portfolio. When you’re just starting out as a service professional it is difficult to have an extensive portfolio or client list to use as a selling point. While many jobs found via freelance job sites do not pay top rates, they are an excellent way to get paid while creating quality products for your portfolio. Many people and businesses that post on freelance jobsites are willing to give a newbie a shot.

Job sites are excellent networking tool. Many service providers are able to develop long lasting relationships with businesses and individuals they met and worked with on a freelance job site. These relationships can go on to be quite profitable.

Referrals. Freelance job sites, and the people you meet on them, are also an excellent tool to build referrals. One satisfied customer will not only leave good feedback or provide a testimonial for you; they’re likely to send customers your way. The new customers you gain from a job site client can be instrumental to building your business.

Repeat job orders. Happy customers found via freelance job sites often turn into regular customers. Regular customers means regular work and regular income. Even if the rates they’re paying are a touch lower than the rates you charge your other customers, over time and repeated quality work you can raise your rates so they match that of your other non-job site customers.

Many service professionals are hesitant to participate in freelance job sites and to apply for opportunities because they feel there is too much competition, the rates paid are too low, and that job sites are somehow unprofessional. Fortunately that’s just not true. There are many wonderful businesses that use freelance job sites to find contractors and they’re willing to pay market rate. Additionally, while the competition may be stiff for the truly outstanding opportunities, the old adage you don’t know until you try applies here. Freelance job sites have a lot to offer service professionals at any level in their career.
