Leads from RFCs (hey, that rhymes!)
Let's get you more contracts before the weekend starts!
How to Use RFCs to Generate More Leads
We know you've done your share of lead generation. Pounding the pavement, making connections on LinkedIn, attending networking events, generating word of mouth referrals, and the list goes on and on. Now, those are still great ways to meet people, create conversations, and even land a sale. However, there are places online where you can skip the cold to warm to hot lead gen game and find warm leads right away. If you want to see a short overview of the Request For Contract (RFC) process, you can see it here!
There are three critical steps to getting the most out of what we call a Request For Contract (RFC).
Search for Your Perfect Lead
Searching for the perfect lead is what RFCs are all about. There are thousands of new opportunities posted every day on different platforms. When you set up your profile, make sure you include relevant skills and links or assets from projects you’ve completed. Once your profile is complete, you can start searching for your ideal client. The best part is you don’t have to worry about the “I understand if this service isn’t what you’re looking for right now” speech because when looking in these corners of the internet, everyone IS looking for a service. They even tell you their exact need, budget, and timeline. This makes it easy for you to cater to their exact needs.
Create a Winning Profile
Everyone knows how important a good profile is. Your profile is your way of telling people, “Hey! I’m an expert at what I do, so we should work together.” You can grab their attention and show how you’re different from everyone else. Don’t leave anything undone on your profile. A complete, engaging, and active profile will make you more appealing to clients and help showcase that you are an expert in your field. What does it take to create a winning profile? Boundless Media can take care of your profile optimization for you, or we can create one if you need it!
Write a Winning Proposal
This brings us to our third step, writing your winning proposal. If a resume, cover letter, and an elevator pitch had a baby, this would be your perfect proposal. Your proposal should be straightforward, to the point, but still, detail precisely what you can do for the client. They could be looking at several proposals, so you need to make sure yours stands out. Use your initial greeting and introduction to grab their attention. Your proposal needs to be unique to each project. Don’t send the same proposal to everyone, and tailor your proposal to the client. Let them know how you will solve their problem.
