You’re a Self-Employed Professional. You want to attract more clients. Where do you start?
You’re a self-employed professional such as a management consultant, business coach, corporate trainer, or other self-employed business professional. You love what you do and make a real difference to your clients.
You’re smart, professional, experienced, and capable, and you want to attract more clients but you feel lost at sea, alone and drifting who-knows-where. You know there are countless fish in the sea, but you don’t know where to find them, what bait to use, or whether to use a net or a line.
However, many of my clients have told me, “Robert, if I could just get in front of the right people, I know I could turn them into new clients.”
Your three biggest challenges in attracting clients:
1. You’re not communicating about your business powerfully enough to get the attention and interest of (let alone meetings with) prospective clients.
2. You’re not using the best, most effective strategies to get your name and message in front of your ideal clients. It’s as if you’re invisible.
3. With so many options and no clear solutions, you’re stuck and not sure where to start, so you end up doing very little or nothing.
Finding your marketing path
Ultimately, everyone needs to find their own marketing path. There is no one-size-fits-all marketing approach and no marketing silver bullets. However, I’ve discovered, tested, and proven many ways to attract new clients that work a whole lot better than what you’re doing now. You can find a way that works for you.
On this site, you’ll find authentic, real-world, hands-on ideas, approaches, and strategies for attracting more clients. And they’re all geared towards self-employed professionals like you. Marketing with integrity and ingenuity. Strategies you can use – tools you can apply – approaches that work. No hype or B.S.
