You might hear that nowadays it is not that valuable and profitable for business owner to network as it was before due to online marketing taking over the market. However, we know that networking is one of the best ways to get connected with people/ businesses and it is a great way to get more clients and referrals.
Some of Best ways to get more clients for a small business in San Diego
- Provide Long Term Value
- Invest Time in producing content
- Create a solid online presence
- Reach out to your personal contacts and talk about the content you’re producing
- Cross collaborate with professionals in you industry
The huge difference between those you succeed and those who don’t is implementation. It is always a great idea to invest in content or SEO, if or when you have a budget. I’m pretty sure most of SEO companies will be able to adjust for your budget and give you a pretty good idea as far as how long it will take to rank your website/business on the first page of Google. While, your SEO company works on your online presence here where networking comes to place.
Use Networking Events to Promote Your Content
Let’s do some math. By attending networking events at least 3 times per week, in average there are from 12 to 50 people per event, let’s choose an average as low as 20 people/week. Basically you’re meeting 20 new people per week; monthly would be 80. I’m pretty sure that at least one person from 80 people per month would need your services.
I do hear a lot of people saying that you ‘can’t’ rely on meetup. Well if you increase your chances to see more people and do your own number the results would not make you wait long enough. The most important thing I’d recommend is sit down and choose meetups for the whole week, so you know that 100% that your week will be booked on that days. Create some additional backup meetup, just in case something goes wrong with the other one.
Make it a habit. Just meet new people. If people like you, they will help you find a business even if they don’t need your service at this particular moment. It is also known that people know HOW to do things, but they NEVER do it. Why? Consider networking events as a habit. To create a habit it usually takes 30 day. Do it for 30 days and after a while you will realize that you can’t live without networking anymore😊 Just kidding.
People would refer to you because they know you like a REAL person. Real relationship will definitely help you find the right people to use your business services.
