The Ultimate Guide to Finding Clients & Jobs for Framer

Framer designer or developer looking to expand your client base and find new job opportunities? Whether you're just starting out or looking to scale your freelance business, here are some effective strategies to help you find jobs and clients for your Framer projects.

Nabeel

Founder @ SegmentUI

  1. X (Formerly twitter)

X is the most powerful platform when it comes to client acquisition. Less competition compared to freelancing platforms and you have full control over the pricing and type of clients your attract. Just follow there three steps:

1. Create a site that shows off your work, explains what you do and has a clear CTA to get in contact with you

  1. Post your work EVERY single day, the replies to the first post should mention that you are open to work and link to your website

  2. Use trendy patterns to show off your work, increasing your chance to go viral

  3. Repeat

2. Contra

Platforms like Contra provide a dedicated space for Framer professionals. You can showcase your portfolio, set your rates, and connect with clients who are specifically looking for Framer expertise. If you don't know where to start and are looking for ways to get clients without building a following this is a good place to start. Oh, and they don't charge you a commission. Check out Contra to get started.

3. Upwork

Upwork is a well-known freelance platform where you can find various projects, including those that require Framer skills. Create a detailed profile and apply for Framer-related jobs at Upwork. The downside is that it's super competitive, they take a big commission and a lot of cheap clients.

4. Offer "Made for You" Options in Templates

If you create and sell Framer templates, offer customization services. Clients who purchase your templates may need help setting them up or personalizing them. This can be an excellent way to attract clients who are already interested in your work. Either that or say "made by {{your name}}" somewhere inside your template so clients can contact you to build their site.

5. Framer Community Jobs Board

The Framer Community has a dedicated jobs board where you can find job listings related to Framer projects. Regularly check the Framer Community Jobs Board for new opportunities. There are alot of opportunities here but you'd have to weed out the bad ones first

6. Post on Design Platforms like Dribbble, Layers, and Behance

Despite alot of criticism, platforms like Dribbble, Layers, and Behance are still valuable for gaining organic reach and discovering job opportunities. Post your work, engage with the community, and apply for jobs through their boards.

7. Direct Outreach

Sometimes, the best way to find work is to reach out directly to potential clients. Identify businesses or individuals who could benefit from your Framer skills and send them a personalized message explaining how you can help. Don't spam or send cringe messages. Try to provide value:

  1. Potential areas they can improve

  2. Loom video explaining how you can help

  3. Improving a small part of their project for free and sending it to them

You can do this via X, LinkedIn and almost any other platform. Being proactive really helps especially if you're trying to stand out from 1000+ applicants on a job posting. Try messaging the head of design/HR of a company to see if they'd be interested. Keep your process systemised, approach "n" number of contacts a day and eventually you'll hit.

8. Events and Meetups

Attend industry events and meetups to network with other professionals and potential clients. These gatherings provide an opportunity to showcase your skills and build relationships in person. Talking to potential clients and collaborators in person gives you an added level of credibility that someone behind their screen do not get. To see upcoming meetup, and events, check out the Framer community. There are a bunch of in person and online events.

9. Personal Branding

Building a strong personal brand can amplify your efforts across all these strategies. Create a professional online presence, maintain a consistent portfolio, and share valuable content related to Framer. A strong personal brand increases your visibility and credibility. This method is not its own stand alone method, however, it can act as an amplifier for all the above mentioned methods. You are much more likely to convert from any of these platforms if your have a strong online presence.

10. LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a powerful platform for professional networking. Again, another platform that has the potential to make your posts go viral. Post your work and link to your site.

11. Networking on Social Media and Framer Community

Although it's very similar to the above approaches, there is a small twist. Engage with communities on social media platforms and communities, share your work, connect with other designers, help people out, be active in discussions and work will come to you without looking for it. You will build a reputation as someone who can get shit done.

12. Job Boards

Check job boards like Remote OK, and AngelList for opportunities to work on Framer projects. These platforms often list remote and freelance positions that require specific skill sets. If you're looking for a longer timeframe of commitment, this could be a great option for you.

13. Hackathons and Competitions

Participate in design and development hackathons to showcase your skills and connect with potential clients. Winning or even participating in these events can increase your visibility and lead to job offers.

14. Ask Existing Clients for Referrals

Any seasoned freelancer will tell you that this is the most time tested way of gaining clients. Although this requires an existing set of clientele to get the ball rolling, it gives your several advantages.

  1. Better chance of converting

  2. Less competition

  3. Trust from the beginning

Proactively ask them for referrals or testimonials. Satisfied clients are often happy to recommend you to others.

15. Content Marketing

Establish yourself as an expert by writing blog posts or creating video tutorials about Framer (such as the the one's you're reading). Sharing valuable content can attract clients who are interested in your expertise.

16. Local Business Outreach

Reach out to local businesses via Google Maps that might benefit from a Framer-based solution. Offer your services directly to these businesses, explaining how Framer can help improve their online presence.

  1. Look around of business that do well near your area

  2. Find their contacts

  3. Make a short loom on how you can improve their website and send them
