How does this work?
This service was created by me, Ryan Waggoner. I’ve been a freelancer since 2007, most recently focused as an NYC mobile app developer. I was able to build my business to consistently make over $250k per year by hustling for great freelance leads, every day. The system that I built for myself served as the foundation for Everleads. Every morning we go through our sources to find thousands of possible leads. We then filter the leads by hand, using the same criteria I’ve used over the years. Our goal every day is to find the best 50+ leads for designers and developers and send them to you so you can focus on closing them.
Where do you get the leads from?
Every weekday, we scour the web to bring you the best leads – we go through dozens of quality sources, everything from aggregators to niche tech websites. Know a site we don’t cover? Shoot us an email and let us know!
How do you know they’re good leads?
We do our best to provide quality leads with great clients — to us, this means a client who sounds reasonable and is looking for a freelancer to work remotely on a project with a budget of at least $30-50/hr or a $500 project minimum. We can’t always tell in advance if a lead meets all of our criteria, but we do our best. Please drop us a note if we included a lead that shouldn’t have been!
Couldn’t I just do this myself?
Absolutely! We do have some experience and technique that we’re applying here, but this isn’t voodoo magic. However, if you’d like to save the time of building and running your own lead generation system, and you’d like to cut down on the likelihood of missing out on a client relationship worth tens of thousands (or more), please give Everleads a try. I know you’ll be pleased with the results!
There are two of the same leads, why is this?
Sometimes companies post the same lead on multiple sites and our duplicate check doesn’t catch it. We’re working on some solutions to make this less likely.
Can you have more of x leads?
If you’re not getting enough leads of the type you’re looking for, send us an email with more info and we’ll get back to you.
Do you cover leads for writing / marketing / SEO / photography / etc / etc?
Not yet, but we’re always looking to expand. Email us if you’re interested in hearing about new versions of Everleads when they launch.
There’s a website I think you should check.
We’d love to hear about it! Send us an email and we’ll add it to our list.
I have a gig that I need developers/designers for, can I post a lead with you?
Sure, send it our way!
A lead you posted was less than $30-50/hr or $500/project, not remote, etc
We do the best we can, but sometimes we miss it. We only have the information provided on the listing when vetting a lead. If a potential lead is missing a key piece of info like budget or whether it’s remote-friendly but otherwise looks good, we err on the side of caution and include it. We’ve seen enough one sentence postings that end up being a 5 figure job and don’t want our subscribers to miss out on anything. Let us know if you find one that doesn’t fit. We’re constantly improving our process and love any feedback.
Do you offer any freelance coaching?
Pro plans come with an initial kickoff call with me (which I normally charge $500 for), and then unlimited email-based coaching as long as you’re a subscriber. If you’d like more frequent and involved coaching, please check here.
