I am the founder and CEO of Dastan digital services, a mobile app and web development company. My team helps our clients improve their mobile and web presence using the latest technology. Our company is based in Maryland, U.S.
What are some methods I can use to grow my clientele and land more projects?
To get quality clients for your web development company, you can focus on a list of Client Profiles in your locality who you feel is your target audience. Create an audience persona of your clients based on your requirements (budget, business types, employee size). Create a list of companies and then send out your communication to them via Linkedin sponsored email, company info email, etc.
Along with that focus on your social media and paid advertising campaign. When you reach out to clients, offer them a free-digital audit as goodwill and gain client attention. Doing so you can build a robust client base in 4-6 months. Continue the efforts, as consistency is the key in digital marketing, the results might be reflecting in the long term.
Hi Sohrab. Welcome to the app development industry. :)
I'm not sure what stage your business is at, at the moment. But when my partner and I started out, we already had experience working with different clients through different companies. And their trust and references/recommendations played a significant role in attracting new clients.
So my advice would be to use your successful experiences and interactions with clients, to garner new business.
Hope that helps, and good luck!
Clients are the lifeblood of any business. I would suggest a few tips to get grow your clientele:
1. Ask for referrals, don’t wait for them
2. Browse freelancing sites like Upwork to get more projects
3. Browse through old email conversations with colleagues, connections, and people you’ve spoken within the past, who are still running an offline business. Follow up with each, asking what they’ve been up to start an online website or mobile app and how you can help.
Try SEO to your site, run ads on the Internet or on specialized sites where you can get an order from customers, freelance exchanges are a good option.
