Be a socialite in the language industry by frequenting a variety of professional social gatherings, such as conferences, events, and meet-up groups. Even visiting the most obscure functions can help you gain clients—and diverse ones, at that. Networking is not only profitable in professional environments with people from the language sector like you, but you can also gain clients almost anywhere. That person you met a couple of months ago never knew that he or she would be looking for a language service until now, and you are the first person who comes to mind! Laziness may be the number one reason why you are having problems getting clients. Despite the fact that you have all the marketing and sales tools and strategies memorized, you still find yourself without business. So, get up and get out there and immerse yourself into public environments. Actually put into practice all those tools you have in your toolbox. Be seen and be social to get your name known.
