Stage E: Attract‌ ‌Clients


Generating‌ ‌New‌ ‌Business‌ ‌Leads‌ 

Phone not ringing off the hook, huh? Don’t worry. That’s normal. If you want to pick up remote work and freelance jobs, you have to work at it. 

Attracting clients is not something that happens by accident, it’s something that takes effort. Yet it’s an area where so many freelancers and remote workers are weak. Don’t let that be you! Discover how to become a master of generating all the projects you need.

1. Why Marketing is a Must

Marketing is not an optional extra. It’s an integral element of your new career, and you need to take it seriously. There are many skills to learn, but each one of them can bring you a whole new revenue stream. The better you get at marketing, the more likely you are to succeed.

2. Mining Your Existing Contacts

Why do things the hard way when you can do them the easy way? You may find that you already have potential clients at your fingertips. All you need to do is reach out and talk to them.

3. Reaching Out to Prospects

Bringing new prospects into your pipeline is an essential task, and cold-contacting potential clients is a proven and highly-effective way of doing that.

4. Advertising Options

Paying for advertising may seem daunting, but it can be the best way to spread the word and reach clients who would never have found you otherwise. When you get good at running profitable ads, you’ll never be short of work.

5. Winning Repeat Business

There’s no doubt about it – your existing clients are your best source of new business. So make sure you are set up to keep those repeat projects rolling, month after month.

6. Getting Referrals

Referrals are an underrated method of generating leads, and that’s a real shame, because they are highly effective. Master the art of referral marketing and you will see your business explode.
