  1. Thank you both for such GREAT episode, you almost covered everything.
    Here are some ways I used to get clients through my website and online presence:
    – SEO: I learned about SEO three years ago in a session with a digital marketer. As I am passionate about building websites, I tested that in some pages and it led to some new clients in a few months. So, I redesigned the complete website following the same on-page SEO rules and that generates some clients from now and them.
    – I wrote an article in social media about a specific problem my clients keep asking me about regarding Arabic translation. A few days after writing the article and new client reached out to me and said the article made it clear to them how to solve this in the future and asked me if I can join their team. They have been my clients for more than 4 years.
    – I am not very active in Tweeter, BUT I like to follow the hashtages potential clients may add to their tweets. I know they may use these hashtags when they need a new translator. Following this strategy, I landed some of my present client and I met Tanya, who co-host my Bizbuddies in Translation video cast.
    These are some strategies, that I thought to share with you and thanks again for the great podcast 

    • Sherify, thanks for following up with these great ideas! I was interested to hear what our listeners do, and you delivered 😉 I am sure this will be helpful to others and I look forward to more feedback from what others have to share. Thank you fo listening!
