How Do You Find Clients: How Posting Helpful Articles And Tips Just Landed Me A New Client In New York #TrueStory
So a lot of you see me posting here a lot in the GPC, but there are other places I post like my Google + Feed and our sister Community, the Google Small Business Community where I am out there posting about a variety of Google tips, Google Products Updates and sharing interesting articles that I find about Google Products and technology.
So exactly one week ago it was a normal business day and got a IM from hangouts from another agency and they message said that they had a client in New York, a fitness gym and they had built out their website and AdWords campaign, but just did not have the time to manage and asked me if I would consider taking them on as a client.
Did a little due diligence about the client, did a website audit and quickly discovered that it could use a little help in terms of seo and marketing.
Advised the agency that I would be happy to have a conversation with the owner of the Gym and see if we would be a good fit.
Meeting went AWESOME and advised her that I would be able to manage their AdWords campaign, go in and optimize the campaign using all of the great resources that Google AdWords has .
Also advised her that I did a quick website audit and noticed that there were a lot of data that could added such as meta data tags, for local search, search engine verification's, and social meta data such as Twitter cards, pinterest verification and open graph tags that would really help boost their organic search results.
Advised her that is was good that she already had an AdWords which would keep her in front of her audience while the SEO strategies were implemented and that we could also utilize social media marketing, add a chat feature, leave a voicemail to their website and install social media social follow and share bars to help increase visibility and the way her customer connect.
After our conversation she said, sign me up and happy to say she is now a new customer.
This is a case study of what marketing yourself online will do. If you get out there and really try to teach or help people and share with them who you are and what you do, well when you get referrals like this that turns into a paying client, well in my book it was worth it at the end of the day.#DigitalMarketingWorks
