Here we are at the 2nd week of the Get Clients Now! 28 Day Marketing Program aimed at Filling the Pipeline. I hope everyone had a productive first week!
I’ve been doing a lot of work on my Success Ingredient items (specifically Networking Venues). I’m seeing a huge difference this time around as far as being able to spend MUCH more time on the program specifics… maybe a little TOO much time, LOL, but good none-the-less.
Success Ingredients – Week 1
I seem to be putting off the Description of Services (repeat of last month…) this time in favor of the Networking Venues. I’ve done a great deal of work in this area, updating some of my unused social media profiles, and setting up a lot of new ones. I’ve got a post on social media in the works for later this week where I’ll link to all of my profiles…
- Networking Venues – Progress: 75%
by July 4, 2008 – Swaped this with Description of Services
- Description of Services – Progress: 90%
by July 11, 2008 – Swaped this with Networking Venues
- Web Promotion Strategy – Progress: 10%
by July 18, 2008I mentioned last week that I’m reading Itty Biz’s new eBook:
SEO School: How to Become an SEO Ninja to help with this Success Ingredient.
Daily / Weekly Actions – Week 1
I did great last week as far as accomplishing items from my daily / weekly action list. I’ve been able to spend SO much time focusing on my marketing efforts, since taking the “freelance plunge” in order to run my business full time.
- Total (# of 10)
7 – 9 – 8 – 8 – 7
Program Goal – Week 1
I’m off to a slow start as far as reaching my program goals, but I’m only 1 week into this program, so I expect this will pick up.
On the new client front – I now have new work from an existing client, and am wondering whether or not I should include that in the New Client count?
It generally does take less work to get new work from an existing client, however there is still work involved, which is why I’m considering including this in my Program Goal Progress. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter!
I’m on the verge of adding a NEW client to the list, but have to wait for the paperwork to come in before I can count this as official.
- Program Goal
20 new prospects / 4 new clients
- My Progress
10% – 2 new prospects / 0% – 0 new clients
How Was Your First Week? And A Question…
I’m anxious to see how everyone last week! Please leave a comment below and let us know about your progress. Are there any specific challenges you have been facing with the program?
And a specific question: What are your thoughts as far as including New work from an Old client in your “New Client” list?
