3PRIME Launches TheOdorDoctors.com

3PRIME recently launched TheOdorDoctors.com which features a customized content management system which gives the business the freedom to update their content as they see fit. During the development process we searched for and selected high-quality images for the homepage slideshow. 3PRIME also provided copywriting for the entire site which was based off of notes given to us by the owner of The Odor Doctors. Lastly, we developed a custom password-protected order form for their business to business customers.

Please take a moment to read the client’s testimonial and remember that if you need a complete website package you can always turn to 3PRIME.

Getting Freelance Web Design Projects

Does anyone know… how to get freelance web design projects?
– Arun G. M / Trivandrum, India

I see you’re in India, I’d guess you’re looking to provide the service outside of India. Your best bet is going to be to try to do one of 2 things:

1) Create accounts and build a reputation on the freelancer type websites.

2) Target an area where you have some knowledge and market yourself to that area. This could mean an industry, like medical, travel, e-commerce, or it might be an location you have some experience with. The choice should be based on your personal experience since to get projects you’ll need to introduce yourself and convince your potential customers why they should hire you.

Good luck!
