Finding Freelance Clients

About the Book

This book is to help you gain more freelancing clients. In here we'll give you effective strategies on how to find clients. Each set of strategies move from easy to hard, but the potential for profits increase. Most of all, we'll talk about how to find clients in an emergency. If you need clients now, then this guide is for you. 

I'll also talk about how I made $39,000 in one month, the law of attraction, the power of repeat clients, dependability, and a whole lot more. 

This book is the result of 7-years experience in freelancing, where many of those years I made $100,000+. Back when I started, I didn't have a guide or book to follow on finding clients, and I wish I had this guide. So I didn't have a guide like this back then, but you do today.

So dive in, learn what you can, and let the money fall like rain.

About the Author

Stephen Godfrey
Stephen Godfrey

Stephen Godfrey was born in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. As Alberta goes, he’s lived up north where the ice roads start, and he’s lived down south where, as Rudyard Kipling said, it has “all hell for a basement.” In contrast to the cold, he lived in southern Australia during the hottest summer it had seen in one hundred years. He also lived in northern Australia, where he saw crocodiles leap out of the water to snatch meat from a line.

He holds a bachelor and master of science in information systems from Brigham Young University. He is a co-author on multiple academic papers.

Currently, Stephen works from home as a solo consultant. He’s been a successful consultant for the past five years, and though he’s had a few offers to work full-time for companies, he still chooses the freedom (and headaches) that come from working for himself. You can find more about his web design and web development work at, and you can access his courses on freelancing at

He loves to catch snakes, bake bread, make apple crisp (he has his own recipe), build custom journals, and write books.

He now lives in Lindon, Utah, USA, with his remarkable wife and two boisterous children.
