Many freelancing consultants often have difficulty finding new projects. It is often a tedious task to do ones own business development. This week we thought we could give you some insider tips around the secrets of securing the best freelance projects out there.
1. Use LinkdPro. While we might be biased, but we’ve had some great freelancing roles - so keep an eye out for our project alerts in your inbox.

Your employer could recommend your services.
4. Let your former clients know (subject to terms of your employment contract with your former employer).
