steps to get more freelance work

As a freelancer finding quality clients who are more than willing to pay your rates, sign a contract, and remit invoices on time, are hard to come by. Likewise, as a client, finding a competent writer, editor, web designer, or virtual assistant is not an easy thing.

For the past 4 years, I’ve been working diligently to bridge this gap. Through the newly launched Client Matchmaking Service you now have a common place to connect with the client or freelancer that’s the perfect match for your needs.

During this time-frame I’ve fostered and mentored a community of over 1,000 freelancers in the Careful Cents Freelancer’s Club, as well as personally connected with hundreds of startups, bloggers, and small business owners who need quality freelancers.

No more slogging through job boards, pouring over hundreds of applications, and being frustrated with wasting your time. Use the Client Matchmaking Service to find the perfect match!

What is the Client Matchmaking Service?

The Client Matchmaking Service is created and endorsed by Carrie Smith of Careful Cents. In my nearly 5 years of being an entrepreneur I’ve established connections with The Huffington Post, Wise Bread, H&R Block, The Neat Company, and even smaller startups like Mint and the Freelancers Union.

My goal is to educate freelancers to compete on value, not price, in order to offer exceptional service and thus make a decent living for their family. Likewise, I aim to help clients and business owners who are in desperate need of a freelancer to help them launch their latest product, or produce content for their blog or marketing campaign.

Each side needs the other equally, and the Client Matchmaking Service bridges this gap!

This service is not for anyone who’s looking for a cheap deal, so if you don’t respect yourself, and the quality work you want to put out, or aren’t willing to pay for it, then please look elsewhere.

Our freelancers are experts in their fields, have been vetted by the community, and are responsible to work with. The clients and brands I work with are from my personal network, so treat them with the respect they deserve. Please don’t waste your time or theirs.

What Current Clients Are Saying

Matt G

I’ve been a solo entrepreneur for the last 7 years. I knew it was time to expand my business, which meant I needed to hire someone to help me run my blog. I was nervous because I thought, “no one is going to understand how to write blog posts about pools and hot tubs.” Additionally, I worried that no one would be able to do a better job than me. These fears have recently vanished. When I filled out the form to find a freelancer using Carrie’s Matchmaking Service, within a few days I had an email from a writer who’s work has been blowing me away. Carrie connected me with a true professional who has gone above and beyond anything I could have imagined. Right now, my business is growing faster than it ever has, and it’s all thanks to Carrie for taking the time to find someone who she knew would fit my needs perfectly. In fact, when I’m done writing this, I’m asking her for help again to find me someone new to expand my team!
