I recently started a web/software based business. I would love to get some advice from you guys.
The main problem I'm having is getting clients. Perhaps the market really is overcrowded as every business even the new ones have some sort of IT infrastructure or partnership with another company in place to maintain their systems. I have acquired one contract which is a monthly one (although doesn't provide that much of a profit) but it has taken 3 weeks to get it.
What can I do to get more business? Is the market oversaturated and should I shut down? Am I just expecting progress too quick and should wait?
It's really stressful as I as a person have never been a fan of cold calling, but I need to do it to some extent. And as you can expect there is a lot of rejection involved in there. Is there a better way to generate interest in other businesses and get them to meet with you and discuss your services?
I guess I just want some pointers.
