        @Kanib There are several websites like freelancers.com, Upwork, Fiverr, which act as a marketplace for freelancers and potential clients. But, I recommend you to start networking via LinkedIn. It will help you connect with other freelancers and clients who are interested in working with you.

    I started networking myself over social media platforms. But I am struggling in pitching my freelance skills to companies or individuals. What can be the strategy for that?

      Well! Pitching your freelance skill is always a tough job, here is what you can do:

      1. Make it little personalized.

      2. Focus on the client needs.

      3. Include references(testimonials)

      4. Provide a free suggestion or tip.

      Pitching is a crucial skill to be learned if you freelance and want to be in the business for a long time.

    Networking is a two-way street, and when you invite someone to collaborate with you on a project, they’ll want to return the favor later on. Further, if the teamwork between you and your network was efficient, it will lead to more collaborations. The person can also refer you to other potential clients. That’s how networking helps freelancers.
