Small business owners all know the feeling...
That big project you've been working on for the past few weeks is coming to an end. Another client has let you know she's changing direction in her business. And suddenly you're facing a big old hole in your monthly income.
This is the life of a solopreneur. Even if you've been in business for years, facing a lean month (or more) is pretty stressful. And if you're not confident in your marketing abilities, you may find yourself facing some sleepless nights just hoping for a new project to bring in some cash.
Yeah, I know. It's scary to put yourself out there, but if you want to keep food on the table, you need to do it.
Now, I don't know about you, but writing awkward or uncomfortable emails is never any fun. I can spend hours trying to get the words just right.
Maybe you can relate.
Here's what I did to make my life easier.
Every time I had to send one of those uncomfortable emails, I saved it. Then the next time I needed to ask for a testimonial or follow-up on a referral or propose a new project, I'd pull out my email "swipe" file, do a little editing, and hit the send key.
Easy! And SO much faster than starting from scratch!
If you've ever sat down and wondered where your next client would come from, or how you could manage a cash boost for an unexpected bill, or how to replace a client who's retiring, then these templates are for you.
I'm sharing with you the very same emails I personally wrote for use in my own business, so you can have fill-in-the-blank ease when you face these same situations.
These emails have brought in new projects during lean months, turned one-off projects into retainers, filled my testimonials page, and more... and they can do the same for you.
I cannot say what a tremendous help these templates have been. I am confident my communications are right on target, and I now have more time to take on more work (instead of spinning my wheels on non-income producing tasks)!
Each template comes with suggestions for use, and several of them have multiple versions, so you can use them in personal emails or in your autoresponder.
I've made them with fill-in-the-blank ease built in, but I encourage you to edit them to match your voice and personality. Take them apart and use them on your website, on social media, or anywhere else your clients are hanging out. It's totally up to you!
Here's the best part though: If these email and call-to-action templates save you even one hour of time or bring in even one new project, they've more than paid for themselves.
