I am no longer burdened with the fear of loosing clients based on high price tags, I'm worth it when the numbers are crunched. Also working on sales model that includes quantity by making templates for the low end, bare bones clients but I am focusing on qualified candidates, I.E. people who, want, need and can afford my services. If I cannot do what they request, tech wise, I will find someone who does and outsource it as long as I fetch a proper paycheck for the job. I will make this project fit my meager budget!!!
Note: 3rd meeting went well, but I did not close. I dangled a carrot with a discount because I need the money bad, and an in with the Chamber of Commerce. I figure I can try my cheap template out with him, use a directory and test the waters. This will give me 2 clients total. I need more and I shall find them. I'll play the numbers game. I am quite exited! I plan to check in at least once a day and give my report! Feel free to share success stories here and I will do the same. Happy hunting warriors!
