Hi I started my web design business back in 1999 and entered at the time of the internet bubble. I did it so that I could spend more time with my family of 5 kids. I wanted to be there for them rather than be a distant workaholic dad. So my business has mainly consisted of me freelancing. I got a lot of business through referral and word of mouth over the years. I have got to make or break point and if I want to continue I need to boost my customer base. I have a really high closure rate when selling from a referral and have presented to businesses of all sizes at board level with out a problem. I have just redesigned my website www.alchemymarketing.co.uk and am about to get grafting.
I am planning logo out and knock some doors and do some telesales - just wondered if anyone was getting any success with these basic approaches I need to bring in between 5 and 10k in sales per month.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
