Oh it’s frustrating. I’m just literally sitting here waiting for a prospective new client to email me or call me but nothing is happening. Yes I know, I’m being impatient and things will happen but WHEN…!
I can feel the clock of my notice period slipping away through a sand timer and I’m sure it’s sped up over recent weeks. It’s been a month and I am still in the same position I was when I handed my notice in – no NEW CLIENTS… and I think it’s driving me a little bit crazy!
Don’t get me wrong, I have actually followed my own advice. I’ve been doing a good mix of digital and offline marketing. Say yes to every meet up and 121, who know who other people might know right!
Sometimes I feel marketing is just luck… hitting the right person at the right time when they are ready to buy really feels like an impossible task. I’m meeting with someone shortly who wanted to enquire into my services because I followed them on twitter and at that particular point they were considering marketing. I mean that is really random isn’t it?!
My business coach has been helpful with keeping me on track, I know these things take time and I also really need to be seen in the local market place, for people to get to know me, buy my services and have word of mouth marketing work for me but it feels like a long time coming.
I’m crossing my fingers that some of the work that I have been doing over the last couple of weeks will come to fruition at what point in the future who knows!!
