Guide How to Market Your Business & Get More Clients

We are in the world today that it can be challenging to spread the word about your business or your company.

So, I’m going to share these 2 ways on how to get more clients for your business.

1. PHYSICAL

Marketers nowadays may have just relied on digital way to market ones business, but the fact is, you have to be physically engaged to connect more with clients.

And here are some of the ways on how to do so:

a. Tell Family & Friends

There can’t be no other simple way to spread the word other than getting referrals through your family members and friends.

b. Local Neighborhood Councils or Events

As governments officials, it’s part of these local councils’ job to help businesses to succeed. So, let these local councils know about what services you offer and they would be able to help you market your business. As for events, attending to some events in your city is an extremely effective way to make connection and meet clients where you could engage and personally cater your services.

c. Ask Local Business or Restaurants To Leave Your Business Cards 

This strategy is simply asking the managers or the employees of these places if you can leave a couple of your business cards where they would be visible for customers who would come in.

d. Reaching out to your group (whether it’s from the church, gym, school batch mates, etc.)

There are some individuals who prefer working with people whom they already know. Like someone who is in their community. So, reaching out to these groups and letting them know what you do, can help spread the details about your business and you never know, these people will spread it out in their own groups as well and the rest follows.

e. Testimonials

Whenever you have completed a project with someone, make sure you get testimonials from these clients. When you see that they are happy and satisfied clients, simply ask them to give a shout out and leave their positive feedback on your website or other pages that you have. This helps to build up the reputation of your business because people do want to see proof.  Testimonials do work!

TIP: A tip on engaging to these potential clients, it would be advisable for you to create a pitch. As you go along and contact these companies, you would notice that there are pitches that would work and would not, so figure out a way that you can make a script or a pick up line that would work if not for all, at least majority of these potential clients.

2. DIGITAL

This strategy may involve spending much money to advertise, but with the right ways, digital marketing if very effective as well.

Here are the ways to market your business in the digital world:

a. Facebook Ads (City)

 When your advertising a company like web design for example, make sure you target your specific city at first. Why? Because in targeting across the country, the odds of you getting the business is very low. The reason is, people your targeting in the city could feel more connected to you, than targeting people who are from the other side of the country. Once you have built stability of your business in your own city, then that could be the time to consider spreading into other cities nearby.

b. Google Ads (City)

For example is your targeting Nashville, Tennessee, see the screenshot below:

Advertising on Google may be quite costly, but with the right bidding and strategies, using Google to market your business is definitely one of the top of the list in digital marketing.

c. Create a Yahoo & Quora Questions

This may sound silly but to be honest, it can work! Posting questions on those 2 sites, like for example: “What are the best Design Companies in Berlin, Germany?”, then ask a friend or a couple of friends to answer the question with your service or business being mentioned together with your website in it. So, this is basically hitting 2 birds at once by having referrals and testimonials at the same time.

d. Join Forums & FB groups

Post on FB groups related to your services but not in a spammy way. There are tons of people out there who can easily get banned by these groups and forums because they post services even when it’s not allowed to. So, basically post when there are people who ask, or only in threads where it’s allowed to post services.

e. Create a Location on Google Maps

This right here is extremely important! a lot of people type in locations as they search for services that they need. So, creating a location on Google Maps for your business is a great contribution in marketing.

f. Create an Account on Local Business Directory Websites

Make sure that you provide necessary details about your business as you enlist. Details such as your website, local address, phone number, email address and all that stuff.

g. Hire an SEO Company

Most of you probably do not have enough time because you are focusing on other aspects of the business, then these SEO companies would be able to help you come up with keywords what you should focus on.

h. Write Blog Posts in Your Website

Write some helpful contents that people would search about and put it up on your site, and you never know who would comes across your site and they would see that you provide services as the same time.

In general, what I would say here is that physical presence is a great way to earn money because these clients would see a higher level of effort being exerted by just simply physically being there in front of them and offering your services.

As for digital marketing, since we are now in the generation that computers and mobile phones are a part of our everyday lives, marketing in a digital way is an important key for a successful business.

So, balancing both Physical and Digital marketing can only result to bringing you more profit!

Affiliate Marketing, Working for Yourself and ADHD

Here’s my Desk

I don’t know if I shared this before, but maybe I have.. I honestly can’t remember.   I believe I have ADHD.   My mind is always racing, I have a billion plus one ideas, and when I start to do something; in the middle of it I’ll get a new idea and I’ll jump and do that. Then forget what I was doing before it.

It was like this, until one day I was reading QUORA on how to control ADHD.

In affiliate marketing,  working for ourselves we’re pretty much free to do whatever the hell we want.  We can work 30 minutes, then go out for a run, come back work some more.  Hop down to the coffee shop grab a starbucks, whatever.

To launch campaigns, we gotta plan, we gotta spy, we have to talk to CPA reps, we have to setup tracker, we have to get all the landing pages together, we need to setup on the traffic source.  Shit we need to do so much, if you suffer with ADHD or something where you lose focus – launching a campaign can become a HUGE chore.

What I read on QUORA over a year ago, and have been using ever since has helped me stay ‘grounded’ so I get shit done, even though there’s soo many distractions (like let me tell you one… while talking to the rep, about what offer to run in geo X,  he might mention they are doing well in this one, so then i’d jump to see what kind of ads and landers people are running, totally getting off track).

This method I’ve read on quora, is getting an empty piece of paper (I use A4 format) and writing your todo list on it with a pen.    #1)  Upload Banners&Landers campaign from fiverr that the twinad chicks made  #2)  See if the ad I’ve setup yesterday on FB is approved for sweeps..    3)  Find an old database of email lists from 5 years ago and see if we can use it somehow   .. etc etc etc.

If i get off track, I have my trusty white piece of paper with my list on it, right in front of me.     And I can continue with all the sub-tasks needed in it.

Before using this method with success, I tried using WRIKE to stay organized.  I tried using TRELLO (which we use for my team, because I have a trusty project manager that is an organizational “Doctor”)  .. but for me personally none of this shit worked because I forgot to use them.

Anyway,  try this tip if you too experience problems with focus and getting things done effectively.

 

$1000 TIP: How to stay under the radar when creating fake profiles for cloaking

Disclaimer: The following is for educational purposes only.  Cloaking will get you banned on most major traffic sources.  Play with fire at your own risk!

Cloaking or thinking about it? Here’s a tip to help you farm better accounts!

Sadly,  with time policies evolve and we’ve gotten to a point where they ban you for everything.  Hell they banned our Bulk WordPress Sites company used by lazy web designers that just want to meet with clients and not do any work (just resell our sites for 2-3x the actual cost).    When I asked WTF is wrong with wholesalewpsites.com they told me “We don’t support your business model” – lol wut?!!    Anyway…  no big deal, new account and we’re back to promotions… but how do you get a new account?   And when you make one, how do you make one so you don’t get insta-banned??

Here’s the $1000 TIP

DON’T STICK OUT!  One of the biggest most important things when it comes to cloaking is looking natural for the ad networks,  that means blending in.

It’s no secret people are using proxies combined with different VPS’s to create phantom personas.      But they get caught all the time, because they leave foot prints or stick out from the rest of the crowd.

My golden nugget tip for today is this,  if you are looking to bend the rules a bit and want to play with cloaking make sure you setup your foundation right.     There’s this site I talked about before called gs.statcounter.com,  it lets you look up stats on any country including Browser, OS,  Screen Resolution and more.  Look at all the options, it’s insane!

What does this mean?  It means you can look up what the average person in the country is using, so you can make phantom profiles that mimic that so you don’t stay out from the crowd.
