19 Places To Find Your Ideal Clients by Jill CelesteAre you wondering where to find your ideal clients?

More specifically, are you looking for ideas on locations and places to find your ideal clients?

If so, this is the blog post for you!

In this week’s marketing strategy, I’ve come up with a list of 19 places you can visit to look for your ideal clients.

I do hope this list of places will help you to think outside of the box – as well as see the possibilities in front of you.

Let’s get started….

#1: Networking Events

Networking is a great way to increase your visibility in front of your ideal clients.

And don’t forget about virtual networking, where you can connect with entrepreneurs from around the world.

#2: Speaking Gigs

Whether you’re speaking at a conference or at a local networking group, you are putting yourself in front of people who may be your ideal clients. Hand in hand, you are sharing your expertise, which will increase your know/like/trust factor. Continue reading

13 Ways To Improve Your Sales Process

13 Ways To Improve Your Sales Process by Jill Celeste, www.JillCeleste.comIf you’re anything like me, your sales process can always be improved upon.

Mastering authentic selling is a practice – not something you’ll achieve overnight.

It’s important to you look at how your sales process has gone, and identify the areas that are working well – and those that need improvement. Additionally, you may need to add elements to your sales process to perfect it even more.

To help you, I created a list of 13 ways you can improve your sales process.

IMPORTANT: You don’t have to implement everything you see here. Pick out the ones that resonate with you. Where I could, I included links to additional resources so you can learn more about that idea.

If you do implement something from this list, give it time to work. For example, adding your programs to your website will not immediately bring clients in droves. Be patient, observe, measure – and stay the course. You got this!
