Going Virtual: From Serving Mainly Local Clients to a Practice Filled With Clients You Never Meet
When I reached my 25th anniversary of being successfully self-employed, I was also celebrating 25 years of dealing mainly with clients I never met in person. Much of this remote business experience predated the Internet. So it's a myth that virtual business relationships are a new phenomenon. It also doesn't require a national or international reputation to attract and satisfy clients at a distance, since decades ago, no one had heard of me.
Today it's easier than ever before to build a professional practice without in-person contact with clients. It requires certain attitudes and skills that I explain in detail during a recorded seminar. You also learn precise steps you can take to wean existing clients from face to face contact with you and to begin attracting non-local clients.
Find out whether or not you're suited to virtual business and if so, how to build your at-a-distance practice one easy step at a time.
The one-hour teleclass, which comes to you as a downloadable MP3 audio file, describes:
- The three methods I used to attract clients from afar prior to the Internet - methods you can still use today
- Six practical or personal prerequisites for being able to work with clients without in-person interaction
- Three ways you can leverage existing local clients to reach out to non-local clients
- Five business tools that help you seem more credible to clients who will never meet you in person
- Eight marketing tactics to select from for reeling in national and international clients
- Advance warning of the biggest psychological pitfall of dealing with remote clients day in and day out - and how I counteract it
Comments from listeners included:
- "Bolstered my confidence about going long-distance, with many practical suggestions."
- "It encapsulated so many of the disparate elements involved in going virtual."
