Any Hack You Want to Share?
"Keep your eggs in the different baskets" that is what I have learned. I started my journey as a small freelancer. Now I'm growing into a good team without a single penny on marketing. I have made 4 websites for my business, each website has different keywords. For example, one website has lots of keywords for freelancers, another website has for outsourcing, and one more has keywords for the web development company, so I keep getting inquiries of all sort from these websites.
