My name is Stuart, I'm a freelance full stack software engineer from the UK.
I'm proud to say I'm an experienced developer. I used to work for Apple, building their website across 68 regions (within a team), I've since built websites and software for Jamie Oliver, Swansea FC, Polaroid and Shell.
I've recently left a full time position as an app developer, and have gone freelance once again (I freelanced for a year in 2018).
As hard as I try to establish new clients/connections to build software/websites for, I feel like I'm shouting into a black hole. I rarely get a response, even when I make sure to write polite, fine tuned, specific content for each company.
I'm aware that social media is key, and I've tried for months to engage on there with good content but to no luck either.
I've been on sites like PeoplePerHour and completed work, but I can't get by building sites for £200 each and expect to maintain a living.
I appreciate this is a tough time in the world for everyone, so I know it's not the best time to be looking for work, but does anyone have any advice? I feel like I really exceed when I have a project, and my clients have always been super happy with what I produce. I just can't seem to find new work. Help?!
Wishing everyone all the best and hope others are having more luck out there!
