Are you feeling snowed under at the moment? Believe me, I get it.

Balancing your business with personal commitments can feel like juggling flaming torches while riding a unicycle.

2. Share a Client Testimonial

Why not let your satisfied clients do the talking for you? Sharing a glowing testimonial takes just a few minutes but offers social proof that can build trust (without using that word) faster than anything else.

Find that email or message where your client raved about your work and pop it onto your social media or website.

3. Respond to Comments or Messages

5. Join a Relevant Group or Forum

Find groups or forums where your ideal clients hang out and join the conversation. Offering advice or sharing resources can position you as an expert in the field without feeling too pushy.
