Hi All,

Still in search for clients, having no luck. Not even an enquiry. My website is almost impossible to find, thanks WIX!!!

Has anyone had any luck with Bark leads

Hi,

 

I have found the best way to get clients is to go out and meet people.  Local networking events work well. 

always have some business cards on you, if you come across any tradesmen drop it into conversation (I say tradesmen as they are often soletraders and in charge of who they outsource to)

Go to your local branch meeting and meet other bookkeepers in your area, take on some sub-contracting work, or often one bookkeeper will pass on potential clients.  Come to summit to get ideas and contacts.

One of my branch members has had some success from Bark so may be worth a try.

Good luck,

Lucy

Such great advice.Just get talking to people but first of all, meet your local network of fantastic ICB Bookkeepers. There's also some great starter resources here:

Hi

 

I found some of my clients by telephoning local accountants and asking whether they outsource their bookkeeping.  The first one I called asked me to work for him at his office, that was 10 years ago!  I run my own practice at home and work part time at the accountants.  This has proved very handy as I get loads of free advice and keep up to date with all the latest legislations. I have also picked up lots of new clients over the years.  Some of my clients also found me on Google.  I built my website years ago using Mr Site.  It's basic but works somehow, although I did register with every free advertising site too.  When I Google local bookkeeper I come up on the first page and I do not pay anything for that.

I've never been to a networking event as it's not my cup of tea but apparently you can meet some contacts.  Try Linkedin as well, it may help

 

Good Luck

I wouldn't bother with BARK.  I did subscribe, which cost a fortune, and all the enquiries that I responded to turned out to not be genuine i.e the telephone numbers and email addresses didn't exist.  BARK would not give me my money back, they just reimbursed my credits!!
