This forum looked like a good opportunity to say hi and introduce myself briefly…
I am new to freelancing, but have a backgrond in CAD and Design Engineering - this is my first foray into freelance CAD design. The work itself is no issue for me, I have experience of course, but it is getting the word out and finding customers which I feel will be the more difficult challenge.
The other complication I have is the lack of work examples I am allowed to display from my past career in defence (for obvious reasons), so I only have a few basic examples of work for my portfolio. I was thinking low initial entry prices in an effort to expand this?
I’ve seen from the listing system here that simply hoping to be found in a search is unlikely, the top results will all be the most popular and established listings - quite rightly too - so my thoughts would lead me towards advertising elsewhere to lead the first few customers in, and expanding from there.
Do people have any general advice, or suggestions of where a good place is to get myself known, and hopefully bring in more customers to the fiverr community in doing so?
