How to Get More Clients When You’re Feeling Stuck

“I can’t stop getting new clients!” ⠀

Said no one ever. Right? ⠀ ⠀

Wrong, actually. This exact quote came out of my client’s mouth just a few days ago, accompanied with a chuckle at how ludicrous this sounded. ⠀ ⠀

Ludicrous, but true.⠀ ⠀

Last week I was talking to her in the morning and she had just booked three new clients in three hours. ⠀ ⠀

She sells one-on-one services, and they are not dime-a-dozen. She’s selling to people who are investing in themselves.⠀ ⠀

So why is she so surprised?⠀ ⠀

Because five months ago, she was making a third of what she’s making now. She felt the struggle to constantly chase down business. She wondered daily if she was going to make a go of it, how to get more clients, how to get new clients, and was looking for ideas to increase sales.⠀ ⠀

Five months ago, her business looked very different.⠀ ⠀

In those five months, we’ve built her a business model and a plan that is aligned with her goals and values, a financial plan and sales plan. We created pricing that’s aligned with her brand, and with the value of her services. We’ve created visibility tactics that work for her and has helped her figure out how to get more clients. ⠀ ⠀

And she’s followed the instructions to a tee.⠀ ⠀

Every Business Owner Needs a Plan

You see, that’s what I know someone like her – a business owner who is just starting to grow – needs in order to reach that happy place where customers start to find you.⠀ ⠀

She needs a super clear, highly detailed, results-driven strategy with a plan she can execute on without thinking about what she’s going to do every day.⠀When she’s feeling stuck, she only needs to look to her plan and get back on track. ⠀

I gave her mantras to remember every day and at every decision point, to get past those mindset blocks, and together we established what success might look like.⠀ ⠀

Her results started coming only a couple of months in, and they’ve been snowballing ever since.⠀She’s figured out how to get more clients from her visibility efforts, from her referrals and from her existing network.

Her plan includes detailed tasks that cover strategies for being where her clients are, consistently and in ways that are valuable to them. She follows that plan and believes in the results, and she tracks those results religiously.

So far, it’s working, and the only difference is that she got organized and disciplined about what she was doing.
