So I’m freelance, and I’m starting to line up clients but it’s going a little slow.
This DOES NOT mean that I am willing to give up free advice on social media, website architecture, SEO, SEM, copywriting, blogging or anything of that nature. I spent two years perfecting a layout to sell cars online for BMW of Austin. I spent one year as an Ecommerce Consultant for Volusion, and one year as their internet marketing blogger. This means I have a total of four years understanding what does and does not sell on the internet.
You don’t ask lawyers for free legal advice, or doctors for free medical advice. You pay them for a consultation. This is how commerce works and what allows us to pay our bills. If I give one company free advice, it is not fair to my paying customers.
Please do not take this personally. I just need to earn a living just like everyone else.
