I get asked all of the time about how to make money as a freelance computer programmer. The last few years I have been doing some freelance computer programming, so I guess that qualifies me to answer the question. So far I have refused to go with those services that stand between you and your money, such as freelancer.com, Fiverr, Upwork, and Guru.com. It has been working out for me just running ads in certain publications and using a contact form on my website. Although it has been fine, I know it could be better. I thought about running some kind of email campaign but I don't really want to run a spam operation. I guess it would be alright to buy a list where the customers have already opted in. I have also thought about pay-per-click, but now days PPC is very expensive for any search terms that would drive decent, qualified traffic to my website. Guest blogging to generate links may also be an option. I'm not sure. I think I'll try all of those methods for generating freelance computer programming work one of these days, but for now I'll just leave this article here and maybe one day someone will read it and give me a call. Seriously, feel free to call me about your project anytime.
