How To Get Your First Clients
Trying to find your first clients is hard for any business, however, it is even more difficult for a new business.
As a new business, you have no reviews, testimonials, or ratings, and it seems as though no one is willing to give the new guy on the block a shot. This is perhaps one of the reasons that so many
companies go out of business within the first few months to a year.
If you are having a hard time finding your first clients, we are going to share three tips with you on how you can bring people directly to your door.
Depending on your service, you may just want to get out there and meet the people who would be most interested in your service. This does not mean to head to the nearest parking lot and blanket the area with flyers. However, take the time to find where your people would most likely be and talk to them and introduce yourself. Of course, it never hurts to have a healthy dose of freebies and special discounts.
We live in a very technological world and talking to people can really make a big impact.
Of course, we have already talked about freebies and how much people love them. With that in mind, one of the best ways to get people into the door and turn them into clients is to offer your service for free. While this is going to lose you some initial money, it will help to open the door to new clients. Keep in mind, if you play your cards right and do the job above expectations, you are more than likely going to get that positive word of mouth traffic as well!
Finally, if you do not mind trying a new tactic, you can always use Facebook advertising. This is a great way to target people who would be interested in your service or offer. In addition, you can target by exact locations such as towns and states. You will also be able to create a specific budget to ensure your costs do not get out of hand. In fact, you can start for under a couple of dollars a day to test the waters.
