I came across Louise Presley-Turner an award winning UK Coach and Hay House Author on YouTube. Her channel is a great resource for motivation, information and strategies for Creative Entrepreneurs. When I was on her Channel I came across one of her throwback videos from 2016. It was called How To Get Your First Paying Clients This Week. The title caught my attention so I watched it and she was so right. I have tried this method in the past and was surprised of how well it worked.
The best part of this formula is that it is simple to explain and understand. It just takes some time and effort on your part. Just a suggestion, when making your list don't just limit to friends and family. Keep your mind open and think about your community your city even local businesses.
1. Create a list of people you know that may be interested or may need your service or product
2. Create a promotion which celebrates the launch of your new Business and offers a great discount
3. Contact everyone on your list whether you call, write, email etc...
When you've done your research and you're ready to start making contact remember that not everyone will say yes. This is okay. Make sure you stay positive, and do not let the refusals stop you from continuing on your quest. Also, remember that not everyone on your list will say no. So, the more you practice and perfect this formula the better it will work out for you. Good luck and I hope this helps!!!
Stay Blessed xo
