I have been asked many times how I get so many leads for the services I provide. Here, I am going to give you my secrets that even the companies themselves probably do not know. I encourage you to try them if you provide a professional service of some sort. I have a different article for those looking for product leads.
Rather you perform accounting, digital marketing, telemarketing or almost any other professional service, then as long as you have a strong resume, or reputation, you can generate lots of leads from the marketplaces below where business go seeking professional work. The key is that you have to be willing to give low, competitive flat rates or hourly rates. You are competing against others like yourself that are either independent contractors or more legally small tax registered businesses. Most of the marketplaces are international, so you will be competing with providers in places like India where $30,000 here is maybe $500 a month, or $6,000 a year. It may even be closer to paying an American $50,000-$60,000 which is both what you are competing with and the reason so many jobs are being sent over seas.
In other “first world” countries, like many in Europe, their currency amount is closer in ratio to ours so there will not be much competition when it comes to pay. They do have a monthly cost or a cost of leads you send quotes so it is not a scam but not free to get the leads. They also take part of the pay and require you are paid through the marketplace only, or your account will be permanently terminated. These are all factors to consider as they can be easy to win business for some, and others seem almost impossible. Some industries have different laws in the United States than in other countries so it is more likely you would only be competing with other Americans. If out of country service providers bid, or send quotes, the client would have to be missing something or lack understanding to hire the people over seas as the work would more likely than not be done illegal.
Some of these include: Accounting, Finance, Investing, Stock/Investment Management, Business Law, Business Management, just to name a few but there are many others. Some fields of work are not smart to hire from over seas due to the high likelihood of the provider being unqualified so you would have less competition to winning the client as long as they judge by skill level too. These include writing, making websites or anything that uses money symbols, teaching, others that use communication as accents in lower labor cost countries tend to be very strong and hard to make out by the average American.
I know this is the moment you have been waiting for . . . the list of sites:
Some others I have listed below are actually places to apply for contract work, but being a contractor is technically clientele work. Therefore, you want to propose like you are applying for a job sending portfolio, resume, cover letter and similar that you would applying for a job, just expect to have all the advantages of being self-employed, unless you work on behalf of a company in which you are employed. Some companies seeking contractors do not like it to be a company so, I advise you do not necessarily put your company signature at the bottom of the email. Instead, put a personal signature like you are an individual applying for work. It is important to eventually reveal that you are a company, unless you are not, or you are a one person entity where there still would not be other people involved in the work.
