Right now I'm sitting behind my desk at a top 100 company, and quite frankly I started to hate my corporate job. I feel like it is killing my soul everyday.
I have always dreamed of owning my business, and the best thing I am good at is designing and developing websites. I have already created a website to present my new web studio and I started to send emails to a few business owners inviting them to create a website at a very good price.
The frustrating thing is that I never heard from a single one of them. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Could you share your experience prospecting new clients in a business similar to mine?
The "I will design your website, cheap!" email is so commonly received by business owners that they probably consider this spam.
Your question is larger than just email -- it's sales in general. Sales is easy: people buy from people whom they like. So the question becomes: how to make friends with people who need websites created.
That's a broad question. One good start is the book How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie. Every bookstore in the world will have a copy of this somewhere.
