To Build Your Business, Put Yourself Out There

How can you expand your business? By reaching more people! 

One of the best ways to grow your client list is to meet new people. You can connect with potential clients and make a greater professional impact this week if you:

Visit New Places. 

The more people you can meet, whether in-person, online, or over the phone, the longer your client list will become. Make a habit of pursuing activities that both fulfill your interests and enable you to expand your network, like taking your pet to a dog park or attending a convention for your favorite hobby. Likewise, challenge yourself to continue developing and learning new skills. Take classes in new areas; you’ll not only grow professionally, but you’ll also set yourself up to network. You may eventually meet someone who will become a valued colleague. Even if you attend an event over Zoom, you’re giving yourself the chance to find people who you would like to connect with and support with your services. 

Be Ready.

When you meet others, be ready both to listen and speak. Practice active listening around new and potential connections. The better you know someone, the better you can tailor your services to them. Listen when someone is speaking, but also make sure that you have your pitch ready when the moment calls for it. Demonstrate that you’re someone with useful, up-to-date information and high-quality services. People tend to remember the last and first thing they hear. Thus be strategic about what you say to potential clients and when. Make sure that they remember your name and know how to contact you down the line!

Be Accessible. 

Make it easy for potential clients to reach you. They’ll appreciate a quick response; whether a person is a new client or an old one, make sure you respond to them in a timely manner. For the sake of client convenience, consider making yourself available to them along multiple avenues, such as by phone and email. Accommodate your clients’ needs wherever possible. For example, offer video meetings for those who prefer to meet remotely.
