I don’t use any ads – Facebook, or otherwise. The way I’ve gained clients until now, was due to my large network; most of these people are used to meeting with me in person, citing it being valuable than online meetings. I’ve found that the opposite is also true – meeting online can be valuable, even more so. This is due to people actually listening intently for that hour or so that they have with me and getting tasks that they stick to, completing them by their own set deadlines. If it were in-person meetings, the conversation tends to deviate to those of our personal lives, and we tend to lose a bit of time talking about that. So, it’s more focused, and the impact has been absolutely amazing. Now, for online clients, I tend to give free value. I do a live video every night, which I then share to 5 groups. I then do a live video and share to a few closed groups with hundreds of thousands of people. In them, I give real, tangible, life-changing value that people can put in place to make a huge difference. By doing so, I’ve been able to gain clients rather easily. There have been cases where by listening to my videos, persons have been able to grow their business significantly; they would then express a strong interest in working with me. Basically, I live by this principle – Give good, and you’ll get good back.
Number one would be to pan out like a camera. What that means is that you should take a step back, expand your viewpoint and eliminate your tunnel vision. My second piece of advice? Whatever it is that you’re trying so hard to focus on, try letting it go for a while and see what happens. As for my final piece of advice – which is so simple, I’m amazed that so many people don’t do so – ask for help. Call a consultant, get a coach or mentor, etc. If you’re trying to get somewhere, and you know someone who’s already there, ask them!
