If you do not have a personal card, print one right now.
Personal cards are the best way to promote yourself and the cheapest ones. It is essential to have a personal card and have it reach as many hands as possible. Talk to old friends, customers, sellers to whom you buy items, leave your card and ask them if they know someone who needs your services and if not if they can be present in case an opportunity arises.
Your reputation is your registered trademark.
Who better to sell you than yourself? You do not have to be a great speaker to sell your qualities as an entrepreneur. Write your Elevator Pitch. The Elevator Pitch is an American concept for entrepreneurs. It is based on being prepared to tell your business idea to an investor that you could find in an elevator, which implies that it must be quick.
Get customers through your customers.
Reward your loyal customers for referring to others with similar characteristics. An excellent way to get more quality clients is asking those who are already your customers to refer you to other acquaintances with similar needs and in exchange for it you can offer some additional benefit such as discounts, extra product or some attractive gift that motivates you to give you names. This strategy works perfectly provided that your client is totally satisfied with your product or service, as he will gladly recommend not only one but many. When a client shakes your hand and finished the job and is really satisfied with the attention received, it shows and the voice runs quickly.
The oldest tricks are the best.
Although it may seem silly, it is very important to include your business data in the signature of your email. Try to subscribe to as many newsgroups and possible forums where you think you can have talks with potential clients. If you can, add the logo of your company as neat as possible to your signature. Always respecting the base of the first and last name, business name, website, and telephone.
Take advantage of email.
Start by incorporating your customers in a mailing list where you know each one’s birthday and send an automatic and personalized email for the occasion arrival. It is always good to send personalized messages to our customers to remind them, that we remember them. Receive for example, a congratulation for the new year from your business, you can brighten the day of your client and perhaps comment what happened to a colleague who may be interested in your services.
Generate an email marketing campaign that allows you to reach hundreds or thousands of users to know your product and become contacts. The only observation is that often these campaigns can be considered spam with the negative effect that entails so to consider it, we must hire database services that allow sending information to previously filtered recipients. You can also make a strategy on your own with your personal contacts and ask them to help you forward the information to acquaintances who may be potential consumers.
Have a web page that lets you know your products or services.
In this time the web has taken an important place to attract customers. Many of us search the network for the companies we want to reach long before we even make a call. If your company or business still does not have a virtual presence on the internet, surely you are no longer an option for many people. And not to mention the most sophisticated strategies on the web to reach hundreds of thousands of customers not only local but international.
If you still do not have any clients, focus on the first point and then go climbing.
