How to Win More Agency Clients Without Spending a Dime

As a growing agency, it can be difficult to balance lead generation with client deliverables. In order to deliver top-notch work, you may not always be as focused as you should on drumming up new business.

And when you do have the time to focus on finding new leads, it’s confusing to know where to focus your efforts. Want to know what the most under-tapped lead generation method is?

Your existing network!

This is a snippet from my weekly Mastermind sessions I host for my Remote Agency Society members.

As entrepreneurs, we’re so busy being pulled in a million directions that we tend to underestimate the power of our existing networks. Many of the contacts in your network include relationships that you’ve been building for years. With people who know and like you! A lead really doesn’t get more qualified than that.

You never know who can introduce you to your next dream client. We all have so many overlooked connections we aren’t leveraging such as:

  • Former clients
  • Past bosses and co-workers
  • Vendors
  • Tradeshow or conference attendees
  • LinkedIn connections
  • Mentors

Keeping in touch with these connections is a simple, free way to fill your sales pipeline.

By periodically reaching out to let people know what you’re up to and who you’re focused on helping, you’re increasing your chances of receiving referrals. And we all know that referrals are the easiest types of clients to close.

So why aren’t you keeping in touch with them?

As an entrepreneur, you don’t have enough time in the day to constantly be sending email after email. That’s where a CRM and marketing automation tool comes in handy. It’s simple to leverage a tool like Hatchbuck to send out personalized emails to your closest connections.

The beauty of a CRM is that you’ve got all of your contacts at your fingertips and personalization can happen at scale. You can easily send bulk text-based emails that are personalized with their first name, company name or other personal information you’d like to include so that the recipient really feels like you’re speaking directly to them. And unless they’re super savvy, they won’t realize your emails are even coming from your marketing automation platform.

A simple “Hi [first name], how have you been? I wanted to say hello and tell you what I’ve been up to recently. I’d love to see if there is anything I can do to help you.” is more than enough to re-engage old connections. And you’ll be able to keep tabs on who is opening your emails even if they forget to respond!
