There are countless local service companies in dire need of a website make-over.
One method to increase your income as a freelance designer is to focus on a specific product or service and acquaint yourself fully with the language, consumer and specific requirements for that particular business.
Once you become familiar with the market and establish yourself within that market you'll find doors opening easier and soon business will be searching you out
You are to find an existing local company that offers a service in which competition is strong. For example landscaping, fencing, kitchen or interior remodeling, paving etc
The company must have an existing website which is in obvious need of a re-design.
Your job is to create a new professional site (using Worpress) that will impact the market and leap-frog your client ahead of the competition
You can choose from the following templates:
Pinboard [url removed, login to view]

Images (examples of work etc) can be taken from the site but in many cases the quality is not acceptable - replacement images can be found on the web and stock photography

There must be an introductory page /area with could include such topics as history, size of company, principal employes or founders etc
There must be a contact page with 2 (minimum) contacts

The visual impact of the site
The quality of ads images and copy
Interesting techniques and effects that enhance the site.
The technical quality of the wordpress aspects (do the extensions work as expected)
