“You don’t have to be online everywhere all the time to find clients.”
How to find clients for your online business
One of the biggest challenges for business owners is finding clients, especially when you are a freelancer or solopreneur and you are solely responsible but everything in your business. Running an online business isn’t easy and even more so when you are constantly on the move so it’s extra challenging for digital nomads but not impossible. So how do other digital nomad entrepreneurs do this? Interviewing successful digital nomad entrepreneurs has taught us already a lot about entrepreneurship and also finding clients. Before you think about all the amazing creative Instagram reels you can record, you want to follow the key steps to build a solid marketing and client-winning strategy.
Create one short-term and one long-term marketing strategy
Instead of being online everywhere on all channels and feeling extremely overwhelmed, create one short-term marketing strategy and one long-term marketing strategy. This will help you to get clients faster and build the foundation for more compressive strategies so you can become a successful digital nomad freelancer or solopreneur.
Know who your ideal client is
Be super clear on who your ideal clients are and write it down as detailed as possible. Once you know who they are, where you can find them and you fully understand their needs and desires you can start showing your marketing content.
Genuinely connect your ideal client
Use language that resonates with your audience so that when they see your Instagram reels, read your post or listen to your podcast episode, they know that you understand them and that you might be able to help them reach their goals. Sleeky generic sales marketing sentences won’t help you, focus on genuine conversations throughout your marketing.
Offer value in communities
Join the online communities and groups where your audience is hanging out. This is helpful for a number of reasons and the first one is that you can observe what people are asking or talking about. Instead of sending private messages you can create value by helping them openly using comments. Doing this constantly over time you become the go-to person about that topic.
Choose a channel that you can show up easily
Being online everywhere is impossible for solopreneurs due to a lack of recourses. Seriously, think about your time, energy and just the headspace to do everything from designing to promoting your services to selling services and even your admin. Many successful digital nomad website designers aren’t online everywhere, especially in the first years of business. Paige choose blogging as her go-to channel and this is how she got #1 searched Squarespace designer on Google for years and this brought her so many high-paying clients.
Get really valuable strong testimonials
A testimonial is so much more than just words of appreciation. You can strategically use your testimonials to showcase not only your work but also create promotional content way faster. So if you are just starting out, do a portfolio project or offer your services for a lower rate and get a super strong testimonial and truly milk it to the max.
You can become a successful digital nomad freelancer and travel the world and work from anywhere!
