Who has all of my clients?
That's a great question to work on when you're trying to figure out how to reach your ideal clients.
I was recently chatting with a lady in the Alignable community who was trying to find customers for her niche baby shoe business.
She had been trying social ads and posts but wasn't getting results. COVID had shut down the vendor events she used to attend.
I suggested that she create alliances with businesses that also serve her ideal customers. Ones that also provide baby milestone products and services - photos, baby shower gifts, etc.
You can do something similar in your business by asking, "what are my best clients also using and buying?"
- Do they use a CRM?
- Are they hiring a sales manager?
- Do they buy forklifts?
Use your list to identify the best suppliers of those items in your market and start building relationships with them.
For example, let's say you provide safety training for warehouse workers. You notice they all use forklifts, so you approach the top 2 or 3 forklift dealers in your area to form strategic referral partnerships.
Who's the "forklift dealer" to your business?
Who already has all of your clients?
Find them and you may never have to advertise.
