One of the most common questions a home business owner asks is : How can I generate leads for my home based business?
So, let’s summarize :
-You have a great business opportunity right in front of you but money is tight and you’re new to doing business;
-You know what services you can provide and how much you want to charge;
-You even have some strategies on how to deal with a client;
What you don’t have yet is a system on HOW TO GET a client.
Does it ring a bell?
Here are 3 simple ways to generate more leads for your home based business:
1) A good place to start looking for clients or to network is your local chamber of commerce. A chamber is typically a great place to network with people in complementary businesses who can refer people to you and vice versa.
Let’s say you’re a business consultant. Which other services work with your ideal client without being your competition? Here are a few ideas: accountants, security services, office building rental services, office supplier businesses…you get the idea.
2) Join local business groups networking events. Although I work from home and most of my work happens on the internet, I enjoy meeting and socializing with like-minded people. By now I’ve learned that the business cards I exchange at different events lead to phone calls from people wanting to become my clients.
