329, Help getting clients
Posted by steph012, Thu Mar-15-07 02:57 AM
Hi everyone,

I'm in the midst of starting a reminder service from home. I started cold calling a few days ago, which I really dislike, but at the same time, it gives me a quick yes or no. I don't want to just stick with one form of contacting potential clients, though. Does anyone run a similar business or any type of "service business" that would mind sharing what kind of marketing they used? BTW - When I cold call and get a "yes, send me more info", I fax it to them. I read somewhere that you have to get permission to fax, so I make sure I get the ok. I was thinking about mailing a small number of postcards to see what type of response I get. Would email be a good way or should I avoid it like the plague?

Thank you for the help.
