Where Is Your Business Coming From? Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue No. 83

Raising the Barr is a weekly memo, which is always pithy, powerful and succinct. It focuses on innovative ideas by maximizing your life and business while leveraging strategy, content, technology and the web, to help you transform the success.

This week’s reflection point: I’ve been fortunate to frequently receive global inquiries for new business that eventually become clients of ours. Here is one I just received this week from Nigeria: “Chad, I have just finished reading Million Dollar Web Presence and I need to rebuild my web presence from scratch.” I decided to come up with a quick list of where most of my business comes from. Here it is:

  • Existing Clients – Have been instrumental in their impact on our revenues and spreading the word.
  • Referrals – Are the key to leverage our clients’ successes and introduce us to new prospective clients.
  • Web Presence – Is the magnet that leverages our content, reputation, and appearance to build interest and increase the attraction to us.
  • Speaking – Allows me to engage my target audience with powerful ideas and intrigue them to contact us for help.
  • Publishing – This includes all aspects that present our intellectual property to the world.
  • My Book – Has been instrumental in creating additional credibility to bring new clients to us and open up new markets.
  • Collaborations – With other strategic thought leaders has been profound way of growing my business.
  • Networking – Whether attending important events in person, joining and creating online communities or leveraging the various social media platforms.

This week’s tip: Identify where the bulk of your business currently comes from and where new business could come from. Once you do, go there!
