I got laid off this week, and I'm taking my IM knowledge offline to make some green. I refuse to stand in line at the local unemployment office, or look for another 9-5!
I've read the offline gold and similar reports, I've tried mailers in the past, and also tried leads from sales genie, but Im looking for something new. I don't like cold calling - so that's out for me.
I want to know what you do to get offline clients. I've heard of going to BNI meetings, chamber of commerce meetings, and using meetup.com but I want someone who's actually out there doing this for a living.
What else can I do? If I were a business owner, I wouldn't want someone walking into my storefront trying to sell me on social media & SEO, so Im not sure that walking into businesses is the proper thing either.
I really need to know what works and get a hand-full of clients paying me $1500 - $3000 per month for services.
Thanks in advance.
