More on the South Florida Adventure

Today, it’s heading out to our local Chamber of Commerce to pick up a new member packet. They have a couple of lead groups I’m going to attend. I’m usually not big on lead groups. They tend to be a business card orgy with folks trying to sell you this and that. But, I figure it’s a good place to start to get know some people in the area.

After that, it’s off to Jigsaw and Spoke to hunt down some prospects in the area. South Florida is ripe with service companies, several large ones are right in my backyard. With this lousy economy, many have laid off in-house designers and are outsourcing. Once I have some names and contact info, I’ll be drafting intro letters and making follow up phone calls.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ll be getting in touch with friends and family to see if they know of some folks who might need what I do. That will be an ongoing practice. Out of sight is usually out of mind.

I whipped up a couple of site layouts for my cousin and shot them off as pdfs last night. I’m waiting to hear back. You know how that goes.

Other than that, I’ll be updating my contact info on several business networking sites like LinkedIn. I also need to start a press release about some Tortorella Design stuff that’s been happening and begin to build my South Florida media list.

Are we having fun yet?
