Face to Face Marketing can be one of the most effective ways to start marketing your Virtual Assistant business, but it is also the one that most people neglect because they fear rejection.
You might say that as a Virtual Assistant, you work “virtually” and do not need to face clients face-to-face. That might be true when you have a flourishing business and have clients flocking to your doorstep. But unfortunately, in the beginning, clients are hard to find and then the cheapest ways of marketing your business is to focus on your immediate environment and go out to meet prospective clients in person.
The success of face to face marketing lies in – “Never give up”. You may get a lot of no’s before you will get a yes, but remember every “NO” brings you closer to a “YES“!!
Tip: Networking in your community will definitely help you with your face to face marketing.
