Are you on track with your income goals for 2012? Or, are you in a place of wanting more clients to fill your practice and grow your business?
There are easy ways you can leverage the internet to attract more prospects and clients. You can also create leveraged programs that will attract your ideal clients, give you more income, and free up your time so you don’t have to be always chasing after new clients.
I have designed a highly leveraged, scalable business that allows me to work when and where I want, and travel when and where I want. My business is almost entirely automated and much of what I do is over to the internet and the phone. The days I am consulting or masterminding in person with clients, or speaking or training, I can plan in advance around the time I will be away – which I always schedule in first – so my time is very flexible.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I want to give you some tips on how you can design your business to give you the freedom, lifestyle and income you really want. That’s the reason your started your business in the first place, right?
Here are the steps I took that you can take too:
First, if your only method of delivering your service is one person at a time and requires you to be present, think of ways you can shift some of your services so you can deliver them to more than one person at a time – for example, a small group or a workshop – or ways you could deliver your information in a packaged format.
Next, design a group program or a workshop, or create an information product. Or, do it all at the same time like I do. Start a group program and use that structure to create your first information product that you can sell online.
Then, automate many of the functions in your business using some of the low cost internet tools available that save you lots of time. You can automate things like client attraction, your ezine sign up, your special report or ebook delivery, follow-up messages, and online sales.
Because of the way I have set up my business, I make sales of my products and programs even when I’m visiting a different city or taking time off. It’s a great feeling to turn on your computer in the morning and see the sales notifier pop up to say you have made a sale – like I did this morning – even when it’s the weekend and you’re doing something else you enjoy.
These are some simple changes you can make to get you started. It’s about shifting your thinking about how you can grow your business and income, and then changing some of your delivery formats and methods.
