For example, I was recently talking with a consultant in the UK who found me in LinkedIn Groups. The number one thing he needs help with in his business right now is getting clients to hire his consultancy services.
He’s looking for a structured online marketing plan of what to do and how to get his message out.
He also sees the potential of LinkedIn.
He’s used LinkedIn Groups before but didn’t have any conversions. So it’s important that he maximize his activity on LinkedIn.
He’s very interested in an automated marketing system that would save him time, help him be more efficient in sharing his content and also cast a wide net…all within a structured, systematic approach that he can stick to.

If his story sounds like yours, you’ll love this simple and effective Online Marketing Plan to help you attract more consulting or any professional clients:
1. Optimize your LinkedIn Profile for getting clients. Position yourself as an expert and thought leader who is legitimate and credible and invite your audience to take the next step with you.
2. Post engaging updates on LinkedIn and other Social Media channels. If you have the right system and tools you can do it in 5 minutes a day. Use an effective mix of content and promotion to attract your Ideal Clients and Referral Partners to you.
BONUS TIP: When you simplify and automate your social media presence you’ll have the time, attention and energy to focus on other aspects of your business.
3. LinkedIn Publishing is a powerful way to get your message out and cast a wide net on all of LinkedIn and Google for leads.
4. Get conversions from LinkedIn Groups. Strategically share your message…with a click of a button…in groups where your Ideal Clients and Partners are and invite them to take the next step with you.
5. Blog! Share your expertise and invite your readers to take the next step with you toward becoming your client. If you have the right system, it can be easy, fast and fun.
6. Email Marketing. Stay top of mind and cultivate a relationship with those who have already shown they are interested in your services by giving you their email and allowing you to market to them. Reward that trust by consistently sharing your expertise with them and inviting those who want more to take the next step with you.
BONUS TIP: I recommend email marketing provider MailChimp. It’s what I use and is free for 2,000 subscribers.
