Finding Clients Faster and Easier

If you’re self-employed, the most important activity in your business is prospecting for clients.

It’s not writing. Or design. Or whatever you do for a living. Because if you can’t bring business in the door, nothing else matters!

So why do so many procrastinate when it comes to prospecting for clients?

For some it’s the fear of rejection. For others, it’s a lack of time. Or just not knowing where to start! After all, there’s so much advice out there!

My colleague, Ed Gandia (who will be speaking next year at the Creative Freelancer Conference, June 21-22, 2012 in Boston), has developed a great way to land clients faster, easier and more cost-effectively using nothing but email. And he’s put together a free training series on how to do it.

This training series includes 3 videos — plus audio, full transcripts and diagrams. Ed walks you through his exact blueprint, and he shows you why it works so well.

It’s well worth putting in your email address to check it out. Here’s the link:

Now for the bad news: this series is available through midnight on Sunday (Dec. 11) only. So make sure to check it out now.

BTW: It’s not too late to register for my new online course, Developing a Successful Online Marketing Plan, through HOW Design University.

    Great Introduction Ilise. I’ve been in business for myself for about 8 years now and I’ve always found the best way to make business happen for yourself is to simply “Get out there!” You have to physically put yourself around those that do what you do and go to events and marketing functions. I enjoy going to events that have nothing to do with what I do. I am the odd-man out and I’m more interesting to others because I don’t do what they do. 9 times out of 10 I have the ability to walk away with a business card or 2. The biggest money maker I’ve found though is through your own friends and work colleagues. Those that do the opposite of what you can do. If you build Web sites they do video work. Work with like minded folks but just make sure they do something that can compliment what you do. This way you can swap work back and forth and not be in competition. Might look into this event however because you sometimes you can teach an old dog new tricks. 😉
