I was just wondering what was the best way to pick up some new clients. I have some but not enough to go full-time but that is my goal this season.

Is there anyone out there that could give me some advice?

suggest you first do a 'search' here...you see that little word at the top of the page? try a search using the word "client" or "marketing"...then click on "search titles only".

You will have enough to read until the Easter Bunny stops by.......

Not trying to be rude here, but this is an old question that could be answered just be looking around and reading. Advertise, advertise, advertise would be my advice.

I gave this advise before:


1. Type in the street name and city where you want to get accounts
2. Take the names and phone #'s returned on a printed sheet and drive by their properties and estimate pricing
3. Return home with a list of names, addresses, phone #'s, and prices and prepare proposals.
4. MAIL them directly to the prospective clients who will be impressed that their personal info and pricing for their property is right there for them. Include brochures at this step. Just have them sign and return the proposal to sign up.
5. Offer a coupon or incentive of some kind (could be built right in to the pricing i.e. "one year trial offer").
6. Update your files as the contracts role in. (upwards of 10% in my case).

Just start telling everyone you know that you want more accounts. Start knocking on doors. People gotta know you want the business.
