Just because your website is on the Internet doesn't mean all the traffic originates from there. If you employ hi-touch techniques with the hi-tech, you will indeed experience hi-five results!
I suggest (if you don't have it already), have your website featured on your car or truck. Whether it a temporary magnet, a window detail or a full body wrap, think about this:
- a billboard can run you $10-20K per month
- a car sign will likely be in the $100-$200 range; is a one-time fee and you take it EVERYWHERE you go!
I have gotten calls from when my car was in a parking lot; in my driveway and while on a pleasure trip.
As good as you are and as much "free time" as you have your hands, you cannot possibly be EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME. That means that you may indeed NOT be at the right place at the right time. If you are networking, and working the network, this increases your chances of getting the business even if you are not there. I have been a member of TNI Arden Lunch for about 18 months and it has been the MOST effective thing I have done in networking. If you would like to visit us on Tuesdays at 11:30, visit www.tniardenlunch.com to RSVP or email me... First time visits (and lunch) are on us!
Ever time you speak, you have an opportunity to interest a potential customer, close the deal, or gain referrals. Great when you have a lot of opportunities to speak because of your networking but also great because practicing and expanding your speaking skills will have a positive impact on your business. Also great is that Toastmasters is designed to help you gain and practice those skills. Visit www.masterminders.org for information about my club in Rancho Cordova or to find a club near you...
