2 Things to get more Clients

Its seems simple enough but so many of us don’t do it.

1) Get Known

  • Start Marketing
  • Network (And its not about how many cards you hand out or collect, its about the connection you make)
  • Do all the little things… Website, Facebook Group, Blog, Business Cards, Signage

2) Ask for Referrals

  • This is so obvious but its not done as regularly as you would like
  • I would suggest putting a testomonials section on your wesbite
  • Run a FGAF program (Friend Get a Friend)
  • Survey Money is great, for feedback and keeps you in the customers mind well after they are no longer you customer.
