What a start to my week! Picked up what is going to be a really sweet contract for website design & graphic design in my local area.
Want to know how they came to me?
How They Chased ME Down?
Well its really easy...... Local classified ads!
Every fn I place an ad in my local print publication, its free for me and $2 for customers to buy. I get a min 1 client a month (but normally more)
I posted it here on warrior almost a year ago (I think) about the power of classified ads. The key is repetition.
I find out when the deadline is (for print) and mark it in my calender 2 days prior, I set a reminder and then I email them my ad once it pops up..... SIMPLE
The thing about classified ads is they are warm leads already per-qualified, so the sale is normally very easy to close.
Even if your town doesn't have a little classified print if you are looking for ideas to make money maybe you could start one! It would be pretty easy to start up
Our local print is black and white and is A4 folded in half, its free to advertise and $2 to buy. They are for sale at the servo, newsagents etc
KISS - Keep - It - Simple - Stupid
Have a great week
