So I have recently started up a search engine marketing company to help get some cash flow coming in to help pay for my Affiliate Marketing ventures. So I have created a website, established my services and packages, and got my outsource team in place. The only thing I am missing are clients. So my question is, what would be the best way for a brand new start up SEM company to get clients?
Essentially I have developed this business to help local businesses market their services online. Today was my first day marketing my business offline, by using cold calling methods. I know it's been only one day, and I only called 25 businesses (law firms, dentist offices, plumbing, etc) however I feel kinda discouraged even though I shouldn't when getting clients.
I understand using the local chambers of commerce is a great way to get clients, and being part of small business groups and seminars to network my services. However I need to get clients fast, and start making some cash flow immediately, I am getting laid off at work and next week is my last week of work so basically I need clients.
Any advice would be appreciated.
