So, I found this great software called Soleadify which makes finding prospects much easier. I mentioned it here:


Still, finding prospects is pretty brutal. I'm aiming at local businesses now, and about 98% seem to have viable websites.

How do you go about finding your prospects, especially high value ones? Am I being too picky with them?

- Pay someone to build a list for you
- Dedicate a day to manually build it yourself
- Use software like the one you linked

What's more important at this stage is not who you reach out to, it's reaching out in the first place. And at a high volume.

How many prospects have you contacted this just concluded week?

How many do you plan on contacting next week?

I spend a lot of time on my database for my trust deed business. It's a mailing list where I do a bunch of research to find the right people to contact. I've been working on my list for a few hours per day since last May. That's a lot of effort and time. I am VERY picky too. I get better results by taking that level of care. Creating relationships takes time and effort.

I'm looking at blue collar businesses right now.

I found this great video here:

He suggests using Yellow Pages, as a lot of these businesses don't even have websites.

This seems to be even better than the software!

Yes guys, Yellow Pages was the answer. I'm finding a ton of companies.

What is your opinion on places where freelancers and clients congregate, like Upwork?

I googled "how to find a website designer" and seems like going to such places is a recommended answer.
