Sometimes the best way to make money is to give away some free advice on your website and with social media sitesProfessional are sometimes leery about giving away advice for free. The "free consult" offered by some professionals is sometimes only a sales pitch, which is exactly what it should not be. A free consult is an opportunity for you to show off how much you know about your practice area, provide a potential client with answers to at least their more pressing concerns, and begin a relationship that will hopefully transition into one in which you are hired.
