Hi everyone,

I really know this topic is overtalked, however, I'd like to ask for the help of experienced business owners in this.

I'm starting my content marketing agency now ( > my apologies if it's not allowed to share this here) and want to get my first clients (my first five clients as my first goal).

I'm not a newbie in marketing since I've been a copywriter for a half a year and I make a good money from this on Upwork. Now, I gathered some great marketers and set up my agency where I can outsource every work to my freelancers.

Now, my biggest sticking point is to get my first agency clients. I'm trying several methods now:

- outsourcing the copywriting, blog writing job of my good old clients to my freelancers (it works but I can't grow by this only)

- sending cold emails to my LinkedIn connections (I have more than 5,200 connections there, it's a big opportunity)

- writing engaging articles as I'm a content marketing agency and send it to people on LinkedIn to make them interested in my service

- posting and commenting on LinkedIn and into Fbook and LinkedIn groups to make people interested

The second option seems to work but it converts like 2-3% and many people start hating me for spamming them. I like the 3rd and 4th options but these take time to attract people and build my reputation.

What do you think the best option to get my first 5 clients?

I also have packages on my website to make things seem simple and easy. What do you think about it?

Thanks everyone,

Hi @Daniel_Budai,

I know it's a bit long overdue, but since I'm up and have my own little personal value challenge going on, I thought I'd offer up my 2 pennies and some pocket lint in an attempt to be helpful to the dilemma you posted.

Hope you find it useful.

What did you think?

Useful or you never wanna hear any bull$hit from me again, ever?
