Since I am still in high school, I am preparing for the SAT, and when I saw my local library was holding a two hour meeting about tips and tricks to doing well on it, I jumped on it. The meeting was sponsored by a new company in the area who specialized in SAT tutoring/prep as well as assistance in the college application process. Their social media manager was on hand recording the entire meeting to be put on their Facebook and website as a credibility increaser. They had a lot of promotional materials, and the meeting was interesting.
At the end of it when everyone had gone, I offered to help clean up, and did. Before I left, I asked them if they had a website. I then said fantastic, do you have a mobile website that I will be able to use while on my iPhone?
The company owner turned to her social media marketer and asked her. Neither had heard of a mobile website. I explained to them in normal talk about the benefits and wider audience reach in under a minute. The owner of the SAT prep company was sold, we exchanged info and I should be able to close that. The social media marketer was also intrigued, and we exchanged info as well. She showed me on her laptop her company site and what they do. She is interested in a mobile site as well for herself, AND we set up a partnership where I refer her social media clients and she gets me mobile website/application clients.
It goes to show that opportunity is everywhere, if a high school kid can get two hot leads and a partnership when all he wanted was some SAT tips, you can too! Get out there, use some of these strategies, and take action!
A special thanks to Quentin, scotth, adukes, John Durham, and many others.
I hope this is a good turn for the better! Thanks everyone!
