Finding work when you’re self employed

Posted on November 3, 2016 at 4:08 pm

Being self employed can be a bit of a worry, you may not have regular work and therefore no guaranteed income and this can make budgeting difficult. If you are self employed, the likelihood is you will need to find you own work. Sometimes you may be lucky enough to get a lot of work from word of mouth but other times you may find that you need to invest in marketing to really get the volume of work you need to.

When considering marketing, try and work out what your target market is. It may be that you are aiming at home owners for example. If this is the case then you may be able to speak to estate agents to see if they would be happy to pass a leaflet or your details on to anyone that buys a new home. You may have to offer them some sort of commission for doing so, but you will be surprised how much work you can get if you team up with a larger organisation.
