David Wood on Finding Initial Clients
The following is taken from David’s interview in 10 Super Coaches.
What top three methods, in order, did you use to get your clients in the first 2 years?
The first thing I did was use my current network. I called people I knew who might have an issue or that I wanted to work with, or who I thought might just do a session we me because they were a friend of mine. That was very important.
Another method that I used was public speaking, and I worked with a mentor coach, Christine McDougall. She helped me put together my speech and I went out to Rotary and I did the free speaking circuit and I actually got quite a few clients out of that, so I definitely thing that’s a very powerful way to go.
The third thing that I did was I developed my website and I spent a lot of time studying the search engines and working out how that all works and trying to get more and more traffic. I love playing with my website, and I get 95% of my business now through the web.
