Hello, I'm stepping into this business full force after the company I worked for made cutbacks due to slow business. I am wanting to get my bookkeeping service up and running from home. I already have two clients that came from Craigslist about a year and a half ago. It started as a rebuilding files and bringing the companies current. The files were lost due to a computer crash and past bookkeepers who couldn't maintain correct information. I rebuilt one company going back at least 2009 and the other I think to 2011. It was a full time job but once completed I still maintain both companies. I'm hoping to continue this path of working from home and want to grow my business. I've done the business cards and going out meeting small businesses and introducing my company. I have meet with my chamber of commerce, but have not joined due to the cost of joining. I have promised myself that if I land other client I will join. I've gotten post cards and put some in the local library a long with my business cards. I've also mailed post cards, but found most came back undeliverable. I still continue to run ads on Craigslist. I have a Facebook business page I run ads on sometimes. I have a yellow pages ad and also another website called manta. I am on Adwords with google, but it might be costly. I have went into some CPA's office, but no one is usually there that I need to talk to. I have a Upwork page and have had zero success. I'm looking for advice as a freelancer or virtual bookkeeper or both would be great. Is there something I am missing or something else I did to do? I know a lot of people say network, but I'm confused on that term. Could someone please explain and get an example? I target small businesses. I offer catch up, short/long term bookkeeping, tax prep, but I do not do taxes (I just get it ready for the CPA, more time taking off your CPA's fee), special projects and of course on going bookkeeping. I'm currently enrolled in college trying to maintain a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. My eyes/ears are wide open for any advice you may have. Thanks in advance. :crossfingers:
