How to Clone Your Ideal Client
Who is your ideal client? Do you already work with him or her?
Whether you do or don’t, you can create clone after clone of your ideal client (barring conflicts of interest) by taking the following actions:
1) Write down exactly what your ideal client looks like. Be specific.
2) Research where these clients hang out. Join the associations they join, be where they are as often as possible. This can include social networks online.
3) Communicate with them. Most people will tell you everything you want to know about them or their business if you ask them about it. People love to talk about themselves, their business, how they got started.
4) Talk to your current “ideal client” and find out who they know who are like them. Ask them to introduce you to these new people and provide the new group with information in the form of email correspondence, blog posts, and articles written.
The more often you perform these action items the more chances you will have to meet those who meet your criteria for the “ideal client”.
As always, you must be proactive. Just waiting for the phone to ring is not going to bring you the clients you want or need.
