When I began my business back in 1999, I had a website, but did very little with it, as it seemed almost impossibly overwhelming to get noticed by the search engines and come up on any type of search whatsoever. Despite the fact that I helped my clients be found online, I simply used my website as an online brochure and did NOTHING to bring any attention to my site.
Fast forward now to 2007, and almost all of my clients come to me from my website or from some virtual speaking (teleclass) event. This past week alone my website has brought 4 clients to my door, and I’ve chosen to work with 2 of them.
One of my clients recently asked me the last time I went to a networking event, and I told her it had been almost 2 years ago, although I have been a speaker at a few association meetings in the last year. My new rule for attending meetings is that if I’m not speaking at the event, it’s not worth my time to attend…:) Amazingly enough, that attitude doesn’t seem to have hurt me. I’ve decided my website does a better job at attracting my perfect client than I do in person..LOL
Even though it took me awhile to see the benefits and reap the rewards of my website, you don’t have to make the same mistake. It’s also not too late for you to make your website a client attraction magnet. You can discover my strategies on how I did this by joining OnlineBizU.com or in my Get More Clients Online ebook.
