As Blender I have worked with clients from as far away as Australia, but by far the majority are local small businesses here in Vancouver. I like it like this. Over the years I have built solid relationships with clients that have supported and grown my business.
While meeting in person might seem inefficient, the truth is sitting across from someone you can exchange ideas much more easily. Meeting face to face is something you take for granted in a normal workplace, but as a self employed independent web designer, personal contact is gold!
It’s not unusual to be meeting with a client or just talking with someone and learning that I have worked with someone close to them. The vast majority of my clients have come from referrals so reaching this local critical mass feels really good.
So — Thanks Vancouver Clients!
