Loved to read your thread as I started to reach out for my first Google Ads local lead gen costumers too. As other said, it's very motivating.
I really hope you manage to stay on track. You will be able to live from your business within a few months for sure.
When it's difficult and motivation starts to fade always remember, there are two kinds of pain. One is through discipline and getting things done when it starts getting hard. Happiness will follow after. The other one is lifelong regret! You have to choose.
Are you selling physical or digital products?Hello. Interesting thread. But You still selling time though buddy. Because your new business has replaced your previous job. I would focus on creating a social media following by giving away good content online for free. I would do this for 3-6 months. Build a healthy following. THEN use my posts to target these customers. Also I would arrange more face to face meetings - show them the paid client and the your rep online. Personally I prefer selling products versus services. Good luck!
And now it's me who is late... Cool that you are on track. Did you reach your goals for may?Thank you for the kind words Christian. Really means a lot that it motivates you and other people!
Sorry for the late reply. How is your Google Ads journey coming along? I hope you already have gotten your first clients in the last months time! That would be amazing :-D
I better work for free then for peanuts because when people pay, they think they own you and demand everything. In my case if I do something for free people just shut up and take what I give.I promised myself earlier this year that I will never work for free again.

This is a clause in my contract. Mine goes even further and states that I can't have any other remunerated activities!- Also a lot of the contracts I got offered had clauses about you could not work for yourself or any other companies that theirs. So I realized I could not mention anything about my own business while looking for jobs.
