My clients come from different directions, this forum, people per hour, LinkedIn or twitter.
I love hearing that people get a lot of referrals. I haven't officially launched yet, so I'm not sure yet where most of my clients will come from. I believe they will mostly start from face to face networking.Referrals for me too, however they are not all from clients. I get a lot from word of mouth for those who have heard me speak or met me at an event and gotten tips from me.
I also get inquiries from here too. Two of my last inquiries found me because of this very forum.
I bet you could get some clients from Linked-in! There's some great networking groups on there as well. I've had a lot of fun meeting other VAs on Linked-in as well as this group. It's good networking!My clients are 100% coming from Elance. How i wish I could get clients through LInkedin. :computer:
Hmmmm so it seems postcards can bem an effective marketing tool. I have to trust my gut and just try it.I chose other because now it is pretty much a 50/50 split of past clients and networking. When I started out, though, it was mostly from direct mail (postcards).
