Selling your Services Online

Have you ever been in situation when you need to make few dollars fast? In those cases selling your services online could be a perfect solution.

Let’s say you are an expert or at least very competent in some kind of field like writing, programming, design or something else web related. You should be able to find a client for your skill very easy on one of the active webmasters forums like Digital Point or UK Webmasters World.

There are thousands of people constantly visiting those forums to find some answers or outsource some work that they are don’t have time or knowledge to do themselves.

It is essential to be a member of active high traffic forums to market your services and also to promote websites. Creating and maintaining good name in webmasters community is much more important for online business than off line one since information on the net is spreading with the speed of light…

Sometimes it worth to do some work for free in exchange for feedback or review of your services. This will benefit you in the long run and potentially bring in more business. People are less likely to use someone who just joined the forum, have zero i-Trader points and have none or very little useful posts on the subject… If you’ve been around for a while and participated in the discussions related to the field you tryind to sell services for – there is a very good chance someone may hire you.

You should create some kind of website, even free one with the Blogger just for the sole purpose of collecting feedbacks from your happy customers, having a list of your services with estimated prices and may be portfolio of completed projects or sample articles (if you offer design or writing services).

Finding quick customers through forums is mostly for the quick cheap projects, because usually there is a high competition for those customers. You may be forced to offer much lower price that usual just to get that quick cash. But if you have time or (like I said in the beginning of my post) simply need money fast – this is a way to go…

You never know – one of those quick customers may turn out to be a good paying long term one in the future if he is happy with your service now…
