Over the last few years, E-commerce retail has seen a massive growth. Online businesses have now become a crucial aspect for livelihood for those who do not wish to be stuck in the daily grind of nine to five jobs.  It is no secret that every company or business needs clients; the more clients they have the more your business grows.
Well, if you are in fix and feel like you couldn’t do it on your own, do not worry because all you need to do is approach a marketer. They say that if getting clients were easy, marketers would be out of business.

 Now, if you are an online retailer you might have come across a lot of fluff online about client attraction. Well, we would suggest that you ignore the multiple things you’ve read. If you wish to gain more clients, start by investing time into building relationships, networking and marketing your consultancy. Since the last thing we need is for you to be confused, in this article we are giving you simple methods on how you can do the needful.
Ask For Referrals
Referrals are probably the most obvious way to get new clients. However, it is a surprise that not too many consultants opt for these, indeed they choose to wait for them. Focus on asking for referrals; do not miss out on this, especially because happy clients are the ones who spread the name.
We also understand that getting referral is not always easy considering your clients might not wish to go out of their way to do it, but what is the harm in asking? Yes, you are going to ask directly for a referral and without beating around the bush. But ensure that you’re being polite and straight to the point, and we are sure that it will work for you.

Invest In An Ad Campaign
We are not asking you to invest in something big, unless you are comfortable spending excessively over ad campaigns. You might have noticed famous companies always appear on advertisements, whether it is online or on different print media.
Unlike them, you need not invest in different advertisings all at the same time, but you can start with Facebook ads and Google Adwords. It is a great way to advertise your consultancy to prospective clients as both of these platforms are charging small daily budget making it perfect for the ones who are cash-strapped or want to test the waters.

Partner With Agencies
Join hands with an agency, because it is indeed a great way to bring in new clients. There are many companies who benefit from this exact strategy not to mention, you will be receiving clients constantly when partnering with agencies. Also, make sure to choose an agency that is larger than your online business just to not come out as competitive.
It is quite normal for an agency to refer their client to a new company in their network when they turn down a prospective client. Usually established agencies pass out work because of low budget, lack of interest in project, lack of availability and in case they do not have the required skills or expertise. So, feel free to reach out to such agencies that outsource or pass on their work.

Network Online And Offline
Online networking might seem like the only option, but you cannot be more wrong than this. Trust us, when we say that building networks offline is also an effective way of networking.
