We’ve got another great rainmaking recommendation from expert Jaimie Field!
Q: Why do have to go to bed at night?
A: Because the bed won’t come to you!
Okay, I know it’s a really bad kindergarten joke (I hope you are smiling), but the point is that clients won’t always just come to you. You have to “go” to them.
Where do you find clients? Are you meeting enough people both on-line and in person?
What social networks are you using? Do your ideal clients use that social network or are you just wasting time posting there? Many attorneys I know do not know how to use social media for business development and are just posting glorified advertisements about themselves on-line. Social Media is about being “social”. Start a conversation, ask a question and answer a question, comment on what other people post. Start “listening” to what your ideal clients have to say. You may just find that you have the right answer.
Are you wasting time going to networking events that just don’t have the people you want to work with attending them? Stop going to those events and find one where your ideal clients congregate. Worse than that – are you not even attending events where you can meet potential clients?
Start “going” where your clients are – like the bed – it’s not going to come to you.
