Both the copywriters and web designers work for the clients who require websites. This common ground of working for the same set of clients can be explored by the web designers to get more clients.
If you are a web designer, you may know many copywriters who work for website owners. These site owners are looking for fresh content all the time. If you do not know copywriters or content writers, get their addresses, contact them and they will be able to directly or indirectly help you get new web designing assignments.
You can find copywriters on LinkedIn and Freelance Switch. Once, you have established contact with them, talk to them and build personal relationships.
One of the ways to motivate your copywriting friends to help you in getting web design clients is to establish some kind of partnership with them. The clients often ask the copywriters if they can refer any web designer for creating a web site. The writer can refer your name for the job. You can offer some incentive to the writer for helping you.
Use Business Cards
If you find that a copywriter has influence on website owners, give the writer your business card along with a nice business card stand. Business owners seeking a website design will see your business cards displayed on the copywriter’s desk. The writer can hand them your card. So, while the writer does the content part of the website, you will be designing the site.
Contact Copywriters Who Design Websites
Some copywriters are also in web designing fields to make more money. They take responsibility of writing the content and designing the website due to their expertise in both the fields. But such copywriters also fear that the project will be delayed. They can ask you to design the website while they do the copywriting.
In fact, many writers do not like to design websites even if they know the design skills. You should look for such copywriters and have partnership with them. Soon, you will enjoy the fruits of this partnership as offers of web design works start flowing your way.
