I'm in a bit of a bind right now and I'd appreciate your advice.
I've set up a business for myself selling SEO/PPC/Internet marketing services. I'll be using an SEO reseller company to provide the backend services.
I've incorporated and have established a social media presence.
I have a significant sales and marketing background, so I'm confident that once I get some clients I'll be able to leave my day job and do this full time.
I have NO CLIENTS, NO MONEY, and NO TIME.
I bought everything (the sites - the incorporation - the logos) using BillMeLater.
I work a 40-hour week and my income barely covers my family's living expenses.
We legitimately have $5-10 left over each month after the bills are paid.
My work hours mean I can't reach East Coast clients.
When I get home from work, I'm helping my wife with her business most nights.
I can't even afford a cell phone, so needless to say I can't pay a sales team unless it's commission-only.
Of course, I can't hire a team unless I just post free ads on Craigslist and hope people respond.
(To be honest, I'm not even sure what sort of sales process I should do for SEO/PPC contracts. Is it really something that can be closed over the phone?)
WF, I'm dying to figure out how I can
1) get clients
2) figure out the best sales process for my business
3) hire commission-only sales people
with a grand total of a $0.00 budget.
(I can't even afford Fiverr because I'm behind on my BillMeLater account.)
Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
