Web Designers, How Do You Reach Out to Find New Customers or Referrals?

By Andrew Powell · Posted on Friday, August 4, 2017 · Tagged in Word-of-Mouth



Over the last 5+ years of running my own business, the biggest challenge has been finding new clients and projects. Referrals have been helpful, but that only goes so far. I'm wondering how other small business owners find clients and new customers? Do you find advertising helps, and if so, what kind of ads do you use? I have also debated about printing flyers, and direct mail, but I don't want to pursue options that won't help.

Great content that's not about you but about the problems people who might use your services would need.

Make it all about your audience and solving their problem and they'll find you. Just make sure you have a way to convert them into a lead. You're not going to sell directly to them when they find you but you can create a lasting relationship if you do it right.

Social Media! As Donna mentioned, Facebook ads are great for targeting, retargeting and providing value. Also, depending on what you are offering, LinkedIn is a powerful resource for leads. I think the key is being of value and solving the problems and challenges of your target audience. With Social Media (no matter what platform you choose) consistency and value are crucial. If you are posting sales messages all the time that are of no value to your audience, it won't work. One of the quickest ways to build and use your business page (depending on what you... (more)

We have found a LinkedIn to be far more effective by a long shot at getting new customers than any other sm platform.

The number one way to get this answer is to take the time for professional consultation. Each business is different and there are several ways to go about building your customer base. It has to be what you can handle effectively and what fits well into your business scheme.

The good news is that there is a ton of opportunity online in both free and paid marketing and advertising. Mainly, always have a consistent message that is well planned, and make your media and online choices work together. Focus on your primary needs first and put your dollars there.
