How to Get Remote Gigs on Facebook Faster And Easier

As freelancers, you will agree with me that we are constantly looking for gigs especially if we are not on a long-term contract. And even if we are on a long-term contract, many times we still take more gigs as long as it doesn’t affect each other.

The goal is to make more money to pay the bills and also build portfolios and experiences.

I know there are numerous platforms to source for gigs and all, such as Upwork, Fiverr, Jobsora, Angelist, Careervault, and so on.

One thing I figured out in all of these things and in my journey as a freelancer is that it is easier and faster to get gigs when you target specific platforms for specific skills.

An example is ProBlogger, a platform that is solely dedicated to writing gigs until now they started adding more related gigs and all that, but you would find hundreds of writing gigs on that platform.

This article is about getting gigs on Facebook, and if you follow these simple steps, you can begin to land those clients in no time.

I am sure you have a Facebook account and if you don’t, you might want to create an account.

Facebook is a big platform and it is known for its large community of groups and pages.

It would be best if you started taking advantage of these communities to get clients because there is so much you can achieve.

On Facebook, all you have to do is search.

If you know how to use the right keywords, you can narrow your search to the best result. Let’s say I am a Graphic Designer, I would go to Facebook and search ‘Graphic Design Jobs’ then what I will do is filter it to groups and join as many as I can.

Now, the trick is to be active and be a person of value. People are watching!

In those groups, hiring managers post job offers and leave their emails with which you can send a pitch.

Now, others will require you to send a direct message which will go to their message request. You then comment under the post saying “kindly check your message request, I sent you a message.”

Believe me, this method will work faster for you than spending months sending proposals on Upwork and getting frustrated because it is specific to your niche.

Finally, be a person of value. You can ask to design for free for two persons or run a discount and all that. In fact, you can get Upwork and Fiverr Gigs on these Facebook groups. You can check the video below.

You can choose how you want it, do you want to get the job done through Facebook or ask the client to use your Upwork or Fiverr link? You decide!

Remember, this method is to add to what you are already doing, not to ignore totally what you were doing. But whichever works best for you, I believe that’s what you should build on.

I hope you got value and I look forward to your progress.

I would love to connect with you on Twitter and LinkedIn.

I also I’m currently not eligible for the partnership program, but if you found this post valuable you can buy me a Coffee
