I just started out in January 2017 and am having trouble getting clients. My focus is mainly on athletic training. I personal train part-time in the evenings in the weekends as I am a full-time CPA. I’ve been using Thumbtack and have obtained one client off it. Any other advice/ideas to get more clients?
Do you work for yourself or for an accounting firm? If you work for a firm, would any of your coworkers be clients?
I’m a former CPA with a masters in tax. When I was doing corporate international tax, the company I worked for had a gym with fitness classes. My work hours were long and busy so I couldn’t teach regular classes during my lunch break, but I did sub there. So what I say isn’t completely crazy.
When you start a new business venture, it helps to tell anyone and everyone.
