Have you ever thought “there’s just not enough people in my local town or my local area for me to make a great living selling my internet marketing services.
Some people also worry that they’ll exhaust their local area over time…with no prospects left for them after they’ve been working a small local area for several months or several years.
If you’re living in a tiny town this might be a real concern.
I’ve had clients from all over the world so I can tell you this is not as big a problem as you might think.
There are 2 or 3 main sources of clients out of your local area and some will happen quite naturally if you’re doing the basics:
# 1: Referrals
If you’re asking everyone you talk to who they know who might benefit from your services you’re going to be referred to prospects who don’t live in your local area.
You really don’t need to meet a client in person to help them.
I have clients I have never even talked to on the phone so it’s certainly possible to make people some serious money without meeting face to face.
The great thing about being recommended by someone else is that you don’t have to work hard to get hired.
They already trust you because someone they know and trust has told them you can get the job done for them.
If you’re using the Offline Gold Army strategy then people are going to be sending you referrals from out of your local area (you just tell them you’re happy to work with anyone in the world…amazingly many people don’t realize this).
# 2: Niching
As you get some experience with paying clients you’re going to notice that some clients in some industries relate to you better and are more profitable…probably due to your unique
back ground and skill set.
Once you’ve identified a niche that’s profitable for you it’s not too difficult to start directly contacting prospects in that niche by email and direct mail…even by phone in other parts of your state, country and even the world.
Potentially this can be highly lucrative for you because you can reuse the same systems you’ve already developed for multiple clients.
That means less work for you for the same pay and better still it means you’ll be using methods and strategies that you know work.
It also gives you more time to hone and refine what’s working in one industry so you become the leading expert at marketing in that industry.
# 3: Contacting prospects online
If you’re active in certain niches or even just active online in general with various interests you’re going to come in contact with a wide range of people around the world who you know you can help.
They’re a potential source of paying clients.
Also people who you admire who might make good clients you can contact by email to tell them how much you admire them and why.
That’s an easy way to open up communication and it could lead to getting hired at some point in the future.
I talk about the most powerful ways of doing this in the report 25 Different Ways To Get Paying Clients.
Really I’m just scratching the surface here…
The main takeaway point is that you’re really not limited to just your local area with clients.
You have prospects all across your state, your country and the world to choose from and you really don’t need to see them in person to get hired.
