If you build it, they might not come. That’s the harsh reality too many entrepreneurs don’t realize until it’s too late. Getting paying customers through your doors takes hard work and planning.
“Most entrepreneurs have no real lead acquisition or client acquisition plan when they start and rely fully on referrals and networking,” says Scott Oldford, an expert in lead generation and growth strategies. “While that may get you some initial traction, if you don't have an automatic way to ‘introduce’ yourself to your ideal customers and clients, your ability to grow the business will be limited.”
In a special Facebook Live, Oldford will provide advice to side hustlers, including myself, on how to find people, turn leads into paying customers and create loyalty. He’ll share the fruits of his 12 years of experience, including tricks to and tools to find customers. He’ll also explain his "SSF method" -- a unique approach he uses to tackle different types of customers.
