Tips on How to Land Your First Clients as a New Entrepreneur

As a female entrepreneur, you probably get a lot of conflicting information about how you “should” act. Is it OK to be assertive? Or will that make people not like you? Is it OK to be kind, or does that mean people will take advantage of you?

The first step in starting anything new is always the most nerve-wracking part — and one of the initial challenges of stepping into entrepreneurship is acquiring those first few clients.

But once you have your feet on the ground, you'll be off running in no time! You just need some tried-and-true strategies to help you snag your first clients to get the ball rolling.

Your Niche & Unique Value Proposition (UVP)

The first step in any entrepreneur's journey is to identify your niche and hone in on specific areas where your skills, passion, and expertise align. Dig deep into your own experiences, skills, and interests. Consider the problems you're most passionate about solving and the audience you want to aim to resonate with.

Once you’ve narrowed down where you can shine, it's time to consider your ‘Unique Value Proposition’ (UVP). This is what’s going to attract your ideal clients. Ask yourself: “What makes you the person your clients are going to want to go to?” Perhaps you deliver fast results, have a deep understanding of your niche, or a level of creativity unlike your competitors. Your UVP is what’s going to set you apart.

Online Presence, Social Media, & Freebies

Your online presence is extremely important. Create a professional website, optimize your LinkedIn profile, and showcase your skills on platforms like Behance or GitHub. A compelling presence will showcase what you’re all about and attract potential clients.

Make sure to share your journey, engage with your audience, and leverage social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter to display your work. Don't forget the power of storytelling — people love to connect with the human side of businesses.

And who doesn't love free stuff? Offer free resources such as ebooks, templates, or consultations to show off your expertise and generosity. This not only adds value to your audience but also establishes you as a trustworthy expert in your field.

Networking

Don’t skip networking! This will help you connect with real people and build true, meaningful connections. Attend industry events, join online forums, and participate in social media conversations. Strike up conversations, share your insights, and don't be afraid to showcase your personality. Authenticity goes a long way.

Your friends, family, former colleagues, and acquaintances are also valuable assets. Let them know about what you’re up to — and don’t be afraid to ask for referrals! Personal recommendations carry immense weight and can open a lot of doors.

Elevator Pitch, Outreach, & Communities

It’s smart to craft a compelling elevator pitch that communicates who you are, what you do, and why you're the best at it. Keep it engaging, memorable, and tailor it to your audience.

You may be hesitant about cold outreach, but it doesn't have to be dull and robotic. If you inject your personality into your messages and focus on building genuine connections, you can find common ground. Share relevant insights, and highlight how your services can address their specific needs.

Connect with other entrepreneurs who understand the struggles and triumphs of starting a business. Online forums, local meetups, and co-working spaces are excellent places to find support, advice, and potential collaborations.

Taking the Steps

When you land your first few clients, it’ll be thrilling! But to get there, you need a mix of strategy, creativity, and perseverance.

Remember, the journey is just as important as the destination, so enjoy the process, learn from every experience, and celebrate those small victories along the way. With the right mindset and a plan to move you forward, you'll be well on your way to building a thriving client base.

PRAISE FOR SHE REIGNS CREATIVE

The She Reigns Creative Team is a life saver! I have been working with them for a few years now and with these latest projects they have outdone themselves! They built out & marketed 2 courses on Kajabi for us, “Park Studios” (a fitness membership site) and “Let’s Get Virtual” (a virtual teaching course) which are HUGE successes! We have brought in over 300 people and are headed for a high 5 figure launch! I could not have done it without them. Thank you Steve and Nicole
