- You must first understand that you are a brand(work on your personal branding so you can be desirable)
- Boost your social media profile and update your LinkedIn. Make sure the posts you share on social media are captivating and good enough for people to repost. You can also do a paid advert for your post that has a lot of engagements. (Maximise your social media)
- Narrow down on the type of clients you want to attract(youths? Adults? Middle aged people?), think of how to get in touch with them, attend events where you can network and sell yourself.
- Send direct emails to the contacts you have. Cherish those business cards, don’t be ashamed to get contacts, give cold calls too.
