In today’s episode of the podcast, I talk about how to get clients for your business. There are lots of different ways you can do this depending on who you are and what business you have, so here are some suggestions you can try.
KEY TAKEAWAYS COVERED IN THE PODCAST
· We can often busy ourselves with stuff that just isn’t moving things forward.
· It is important to prioritise the important bits that help to get more clients and make money.
· Write a list of people you know who may be a good referral for work and a list of people who would be a perfect client for you.
· Let your existing clients or past clients know that you have some space available.
· “Do you know anyone who may need some help with [Your Service], if so please could you introduce us?”
· Getting clients is a number game – you will get a percentage of the people who interact with you to actually buy.
· Referrals are simply your client telling someone they know that you exist.
· Ask your network to share your content and help spread awareness.
· Be proactive – no one is sat waiting for you to do something to share it with their audience, but if you ask them, they would be happy to.
· Pick out some of your ideal clients – approach them and start a conversation.
· Connect with your ideal clients on social media and engage with their content so they can see you exist.
· Email lists are there when we need them – send something that says you have a space and that you are taking on clients.
· People may assume you are too busy, so sometimes we need to be honest and say we are looking for a client.
· Advertise spaces on social media and tell people what you offer.
· Be more obvious and forward.
· Keep an eye on Facebook group T&Cs to make sure you’re not breaking any.
· Join Facebook groups where your ideal customers hang out – interact, offer advice, answer questions.
· Offer a free discovery call or part of your offering that gives people a tiny taste of what you do – show your value and don’t give away too much.
THE ONE THING YOU NEED TO REMEMBER ABOVE ALL ELSE…
