What Recession? … Business Is Booming!
(And I never left the comfort of my home office
or made a single cold call!)
I don’t mean to make light of anyone else’s struggles in today’s economy, but for me, “business is booming!”
I’m in the midst of some of my most profitable months ever in my tiny, one-person, home-based freelance business. Things are really hopping. And, I’m happy to report, I have a diverse group of clients who are doing just as well with their businesses, too.
Six to nine months from now, I expect things to be even rosier than they are today. In a few minutes, you’ll see why I remain so optimistic about my future … and how you can get yourself in the same position, too.
I’m going to share some of my most-effective secrets with you for building a thriving business, even during these tough economic times.
My name is Jim Turner.
Back in 2005, I had the good fortune of landing my first copywriting gig within just a few weeks of finishing AWAI’s Accelerated Copywriting program. Since then, I’ve written winning sales letters in the financial and business-opportunity sectors.
About a year ago, I started looking to diversify my clientele by writing copy in several different niches – as opposed to just one – and offering my clients additional services.
That meant finding new clients … something I wasn’t thrilled about.
Lucky for me, I stumbled upon a revolutionary and fun way to do it … that harnesses the power of social networking.
I’m sure you’ve heard of social-networking sites. They’re free websites where you can sign up and then invite all your friends and family to join in as a way to stay connected.
What you may not realize, though, is that there are actually hundreds of social-networking sites out there. So, how do you know which ones to turn to for making connections and building your business?
Fortunately, through my extensive testing, I’ve identified the three social-networking sites that can help turn your freelance business into a money-making machine within a few weeks.
I call them the “Golden Trio of Social Networking,” … Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Now, it’s possible you may have tried these social-networking sites but haven’t seen the results I’m getting. Don’t worry! I’m going to show you exactly what I did to turn my business into a six-figure profit machine.
You’re going to be amazed at how simple and easy it is to follow my step-by-step instructions for finding new clients and customers using this “Golden Trio.” You could have another three or four clients in the next 30 to 60 days. And another 15 or 20 by this time next year.
Just imagine what that would do for you.
When I started my home-based copywriting business a few years ago, finding clients meant finding a list of prospects … then contacting them by a postcard, a direct-mail letter, an email, or (God forbid) a cold call.
That strategy worked well … and it still does. But not nearly as well as the “Golden Trio” does for me today.
Because … just like you, your prospects are busy. They don’t necessarily pay attention to all the emails and calls they get on a daily basis.
But on the social-networking sites, I’m the one being contacted. I get invitations every day from people looking to connect with me, who are interested in doing business with me.
These people – your prospective clients and partners – are stampeding to the “Golden Trio” sites looking to meet other like-minded business people. In fact, my network of connections is now growing by 1,100 new contacts per week!
Online social networking is a lot like going to a local Chamber of Commerce event. You start off with small talk to get to know the other person. Some people you get to like and know well. Others you don’t. Once you know and like them, you begin to think of ways you can either do business with them yourself or recommend them to someone you know.
People do the same thing when they come to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Before doing business with you, they want to get to know you.
But, instead of meeting a few dozen potential clients at a Chamber of Commerce meeting, you can meet thousands through the “Golden Trio.”
That’s how I’ve found every one of my new clients during the past 12 months. It has literally revolutionized how I attract, connect with, and build relationships with new and existing clients.
You’ll see … you can do this, too …
I have to admit, now that I have the hang of using social networking to find clients, I have no desire to go back to the old way of doing things.
I love to see people’s eyes light up when I tell them stories of how I’ve made money from the social-networking sites.
In fact, let me share a quick one with you now …
One of my first big paydays came one day when, out of nowhere, a friend I met through LinkedIn sent me a message wanting to know if I was too busy to look into a project he didn’t have time to handle. I gladly accepted the offer, and he introduced me to the client within a couple of days.
Over the next few weeks, the client contracted $5,350 worth of business with me.
You’re probably saying, “Jim, is it that easy?”
Yes, it is! And here’s why …
I met the friend who introduced me to the client by using the Search tool within LinkedIn to find other copywriters. I sent each person that came up in the search results a personal invitation to become my friend.
The note was very simple: “Since we’re both copywriters, maybe we should become friends, because we just might be able to help each other out one day down the road.”
That simple little message opened the door to over $5,000 worth of work for me in a few weeks. Of course, my new friend and I built a strong enough relationship that he did all the selling for me to the client. All I did was follow through with my commitments and write good copy for them.
See? It really is that easy!
And now, you can use social networking to find new clients and secure your future, just as I have.
You see, I’ve laid out all of my best techniques for building a highly successful home-based business using social networking in a unique and comprehensive program from AWAI called Social Networking: The 21st Century Way to Find New Clients.
Simply learn the facts about social networking and then follow my step-by-step instructions, and you’ll do just fine. Well actually, better than fine …
Since social networking is so much fun and so easy to do, at times it gets a bad rap. But most of it comes from those who either haven’t tried it or … tried it, did all the wrong things, and saw bad results.
Here are a few things you’ve probably heard about social networking:
“It’s a waste of time.”
“It takes too much time.”
“You can’t make money through social networking.”
“Social-networking sites are for pimply faced high-schoolers and beer-drinking college kids.”
Once you’ve wiped out these “success-killing” myths, you’ll be well on your way to finding tons of new clients and watching your business double over the next 12 months, while having a whole lot of fun, too.
If you’ve been waiting and hesitating about social networking, don’t wait any longer. There are still ample opportunities get in on the “Gold Rush” period of social networking.
Some people are still wondering, “What’s happening?” … or they’re wondering, “Why am I not making money from my social-networking efforts?”
Those people haven’t heard about my step-by-step system in Social Networking: The 21st Century Way to Find New Clients.
But you have!
Millions of people a day are joining Facebook alone. In April 2009, Twitter had 17 million unique U.S. visitors … a whopping 83% increase from March. And they’re not coming online just to play games and share photos of the new baby with the grandparents.
You can’t escape the sweeping impact of social networking on many aspects of our society:
But the big opportunity for your home-based business is the huge influx of professionals, entrepreneurs, and home-based business owners. These folks are looking to find clients and service providers that they can get to know, like, trust, and do business with.
Take Carla Young, for example. She’s a work-at-home mom who has built a resource community for other moms called MOMeo Community.com. It’s designed to support “Mompreneurs” in achieving success on their terms. Most of its members are attracted to Carla through her social-networking activities on Twitter and Facebook.
Then there’s Christy Goldfeder, who’s a copywriter and health coach. Christy stragetically uses Twitter to attract prospects to her blog-focused website and her high-content e-zine. Christy also attracts a lot of students to her online classes on seasonal cleansing using Twitter and her health-focused Facebook profile page.
Karen Swim runs a home-based copywriting and marketing business with a global base of clients. She integrates her Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and blogging activities into a magnetic social-media presence that keeps her business thriving on a monthly basis.
Bottom line: There’s no better time than right now to take advantage of the incredible power and potential of social networking to attract and connect with tons of new clients without spending a dime on marketing expenses.
I’ve been in the trenches … stubbed my toes a few times … even had a few embarrassing moments as I violated some of the unspoken “rules of the land.”
But fortunately for you, you have nothing to worry about. I’ve tested, tweaked, and refined my approach to social networking for profits during the past year.
My new program provides you with everything you need to get started building your online reputation. Ideas on how to … be an extrovert even though you’re a little shy … rub people the right way, so they trust you and are willing to give you their hard-earned money … use Facebook to build your own army of “salespeople.”
Here are a few critical concepts and ideas you’ll learn in Social Networking: The 21st Century Way to Find New Clients.
While developing my program, Social Networking: The 21st Century Way to Find New Clients, I made sure that simplicity and ease of use were emphasized throughout. No special skills or equipment are required. I even give you real examples of how I’ve used the techniques to get the powerful results I’ve seen over the past year.
You might be surprised about how simple and easy this is to implement. You might even think it won’t work for you. But I guarantee that if you follow every step as I’ve laid them out in an easy-to-follow manner, you will see positive results quickly.
And, as if that weren’t enough, I take things even a step further …
Without a doubt, a little “hand holding” can be a big boost to your success in social networking. That’s why I’ve decided to be there with you to help you get started.
I’m doing this because I sincerely want to help you win more clients, so your home-based business can see the growth you’ve always dreamed of having.
So, I’ll be available to you on a “members-only” forum on the AWAI website, solely for those who are serious about using social networking to find and connect with new clients.
In the privacy of this forum, I’ll share my personal thoughts and experiences with you. You’ll be able to ask specific questions you may have or get feedback from me on particular components of your social-networking strategy. I’ll be available to help guide you along the way.
You have a very unique and exciting opportunity to positively impact your home-based business today. There simply aren’t a lot of comprehensive social-networking programs out there specifically focused on this topic. You can find only bits and pieces of information scattered around the Internet.
I’ve made it easy for you by collecting, testing, tweaking, and perfecting the process of finding profitable clients through social networking. Now, all you have to do is follow the program.
You’re going to get my best … only the winning ideas are shared in this program.
You’ll have everything you need to revolutionize your home-based business and start a steady stream of new clients over the next few months.
By the time you’ve progressed through my social-networking program, you’ll know:
You’ll be hard-pressed to find this much information on social networking in one central location.
And imagine what it would cost to get a top-level business consultant or social-networking strategist to show up at your office and show you how to do this. We’re easily looking at between $5,000 and $10,000.
I don’t suggest you take that approach, even though I’m in that line of work.
A more prudent decision would be to use my amazingly profitable social-networking system …
