How to Get More Work? 💼
Courtesy of @davetalas
Huge shoutout to @thechrisdo for teaching me and millions of others about the power of giving.
When you give, some people will listen 🧐
If what you give is useful or interesting, they will share.
So the idea spreads.
Now you have it, and I have it too.
Isn’t that magical? 🔮
Let’s reverse engineer
The steps you need to take to get work
*in reverse order
6. Start working
5. Close a sale
4. Write a proposal
3. Get a request for proposal
2. Have a meeting or call
1. First contact
The sales funnel
People with a need must find you first!
How will customers find you?
A.K.A.: Step 1. First contact
- Provide value.
- Do it openly
- Do it freely
- Give it away
Human beings feel a need to reciprocate. We don’t like just taking stuff. We like giving back. Sometimes, even more than what we’ve got.
Social media is not a permission to advertise.
It is a place to:
1. Tell your story
2. Show your work
3. Teach & help others
4. Build relationships
