Hey, just thought I'd make a quick introduction. First heard about this form a couple of days ago on Fox's YouTube channel and decided to join.

I'm 35 and started my own web design company after studying software development for a year at the Open University. Made a WordPress site for a friend and he asked me, 'What's the name of your business and what's your website address?', and something just clicked in my brain after years of doing nothing with my life. I immediately just went for it, registered a limited company and decided to go all-in.

Fast forward 6 months and I'm now building websites for my 7th, 8th and 9th clients. Not huge contracts or loads of money but for a start I'm quite happy. Now looking at how to scale and start finding the bigger clients.

Anyway, hello from Scotland and good luck to everyone else on their journey.

Thanks, mate. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster of going between being super busy and loving life, to having no clients and questioning my whole existence. I need to work more on my cold email game so that I don't have any of the quiet moments. Well, either that or get higher paying clients so I can manage the quiet times better.

You may have already seen this as it's from Fox, this particular post talks about type of companies to target.

Lots of threads on web design & marketing techniques though.
I don't recall seeing anything specifically for cold email but I wasn't looking
You could do a forum search

Have you considered getting a freelance copywriter draft some emails?
Upwork is supposed to be reasonable for this kind of thing.

Thanks. I'll have a look. Fox's stuff is gold.
