    Hello,

    As many of you already know, I do logo design and branding for companies.

    I decided to try a new way of finding leads and clients which will include a free work. There are many good Instagram accounts from 150k - 1M followers. I reached out to couple of them to make a logo for them in exchange for promotion.

    The last one I did has 530k followers and after promotion in his stories I got a new client after 10 minutes. The one I did before that took around 15 days to get a client. The first client got me $600 and the other one $1000 + possibility of more work in terms of business cards design, etc.

    Sometimes it comes right away, sometimes you have to wait, but it works.

    This is just a quick one for anyone who is looking a new way to sell their service/product.
    My advice is, don't be afraid doing a bit of free work in exchange for promotion. After the promotion brings you new leads, be confident and don't lower your prices!

    Happy New Year!

    Sounds good.

    I don't know if you saw it, but I made a thread the other day about my B2B technique on LinkedIn.

    Crushing B2B Sales with LinkedIn

    I think this could be worth you trying - let me know what you think!

    Congrats and thanks for sharing your results.

    But I won't consider this "free work" though. It's more of a barter arrangement.

    The late Dave Wagenvoord was such a maven at the barter game, and many of his exploits are documented in his book: No Cash, No Problem: How To Get Everything You Want in Business and Life, Without Using Cash!

    I have thought about doing this also. I can't post any work I do being a bookkeeper, but it is a good idea to ask for a review. I will try it. I have been stand-offish before because I am afraid someone will give me this ungodly amount of work for one month and that I will spend hours upon hours doing it free just for them to possibly leave or give negative feedback. Maybe I just need to have more faith in my fellow humans. : )
