22 ways to get leads WITHOUT social media
From newsletter swaps to becoming a recommended provider, there's endless ways to find your right fit client!
Earlier this week, I asked you what social media was doing for you and many of you replied! Here’s some of what I heard from you:
“I'm never short on ideas for posts! However, I would love there to be more leads/ conversions from it.” —Lisa Partridge, Communication Coach
“Would love for it to work as conversion more than visibility; though a mix of both isn’t a bad thing. Regardless, I’d love for social not to feel so draining.” —Blythe Alpern, Content Strategist and Copywriter for Beauty and Lifestyle Brands
“I've been MAJORLY burnt out on social media since the beginning of summer (IG specifically)” —Naomi Greenstein, SEO-friendly Copywriter
Social media is a great communication tool but if you’re sick of keeping up with it or you haven’t found it’s easy to get results from it, I want you to know there’s MANY MORE WAYS TO GET LEADS!
This week on the show, I share 22 ways to get leads without social media.

Ask people you know
Get warm intros for coffee chats
Create a referral program
Become a referral partner for others
Become a recommended provider for another company
Pitch yourself for open job reqs
Make your own amplifier network
Participate in relevant communities
