That’s a discussion for another day.) Without knowing anything else about your qualifications, your potential clients are making decisions about your business based on how your marketing looks! Unsplash is a free graphics resource chock full of incredible, professional looking images you can use in all your marketing.

Depending on the freelancer and the work you’re looking for, prices start from as low as $5 per job and go up from there. Fivver is like having a built-in marketing department without the overhead.
