Got my first paying customer from a combination of two things:
1) Craig’s List
2) Having decent samples of my work with reasonable prices
Most folks on Craig’s List are Uncle Morty who has a video camera and some software to edit with – Not very professional looking samples or websites. I highlighted this fact in my ad and made sure my website (while still under construction) looks good and the samples I posted were very good – Also made sure there were no typos or bad links in the ad or the website.
