  1. A good start is to show prospective clients how you can solve their
    problems. They’re not interested in technologies and geek speak. I usually
    sell them responsive web design as a starter. But 99% don’t have a clue
    what RWD is, so you use other keywords like ‘mobile optimised’ and explain
    why one site served from a single URL is better than having a default site
    and a mobile site. Then you sell the sizzle – email campaigns, SEO and
    social media integration.

  2. You said you handed over your cards. Who did you hand the over to, the
    cashier who makes hourly wage and couldn’t care less?

    How do you get to the decision makers. Wont the cashiers just throw your
    card after you walk out, or misplace it , never to bee seen by the owner
    (even if owner was potentially interested)?

    I don’t mean to come off as odd, but these are scenarios that are fairly
    common, especially in US.

  3. an even easier way , ask a busy web designer ,if they are to busy they will
    refer you to clients they don’t have time for

  4. I was just wondering when you build a website for a client does the client
    provide you with all of their logos, fonts etc or do they tell you to ask
    the design agency for these things?

  6. Hey John, Thanks for doing this video, I started my Webdesign/Media Company
    in Jan 2014 and have 3 Clients just by meeting a few people and offering to
    help them get started. I have just designed my business cards/flyers and
    going to hand them around over the next few weeks. http://www.purplefoxmedia.com
    Let me know what you think? Thanks 🙂 (Andrea Kelly)

  7. Hey John, good video. Computer nerds often have difficulty with people and
    business is always about people! I started with a quick google of local
    sites and sorted out the worst. I then put together a letter offering
    services with suggestions about site improvements etc. I found people with
    bad sites often know it and just keep putting off the day to get it sorted.
    They are glad to find somebody but you’ll still need to get face to face
    and make a nice impression. Cheers!

  14. He is making 100% VALID POINTS! Every successful client I’ve ever had, came
    from meeting with local businesses or musicians in my area. Those will be
    your #1 clients. Remember, Music Artists and Local Businesses. COLD CALLING
    WORKS but its hit or miss. Its much easier for a prospect to find interest
    in your business when you talk to them about it in person. There you will
    experience chemistry with your prospective client.
