3 Quick Ways to Break Out of Your Dry Spell and Attract Some “Juicy” Prospects

It’s not uncommon for entrepreneurs to have ups and downs in their business.  One month your phone is ringing off the hook with potential clients, the next month you’re only hearing crickets.  Now there are many different ways to prevent this from happening (ex. Consistently marketing your business), but what do you do if you’re in the valley right now and you need to drum up some business quickly?

Here are 3 quick ways to break out of your dry spell and attract some “juicy” prospects.

  1. Speak at an organization or event full of your ideal clients.  Grab paper and pencil and write down 5 organizations that serve you ideal clients and contact their program director to book a speaking gig.  Make sure you’re able to offer a freebie to get members of your audience on your email list so you can follow.  If you can also offer a free consultation to a select few, that’s great, too.
  2. Speak to a colleague’s community.  Call up a couple of colleagues who work with a similar target market and offer to speak to their community.  Make it a win-win-win situation by offering an affiliate commission on sales to your colleague and providing tremendous during your presentation.
  3. Ask for referrals.  Tap your existing network and ask for referrals.  If you’re just getting started in your business, send out a letter to everyone you know and let them know what you’re up to and who your ideal client is.  You’re bound to get some referrals.  If you’ve been in business for a while, connect with other professionals who offer a complementary service and ask for referrals.

The key to quickly attracting clients is to get out there and connect with others.  Think high-touch for high-impact.  I love to hear some ways that you quickly boost your business.  Feel free to share your comments below.

Great tips, Tiffany. I always forget how powerful and energizing public speaking can be. If anything, it forces me to step out of my comfort zone, create new content and fix my hair (I work from home so that doesn’t always happen:). So glad for the reminders.

Thanks Tiffany. No question speaking leads to more business in my business and most likely in others as well.

I think that the speaking gets you in front of people, allows people to get to “know” you and sets you up as the expert. Plus I love doing it!

Speaking is great. Not only do you get in front of people it also gets you to freshen up your content and create new products.

Tiffany -

Speaking is definitely a great opportunity to get the conversation started much quicker with new prospects – as long as those events have your ideal clients in them! I’;ve found when the speaker and the event are matched up, and the speaker focuses more on starting the conversation and building a strong level of trust and “like”, the event generates much more for everyone involved.
