    Marie, GIRL…..I love your videos. I learn so much from you. I am taking marketing management, but the big thing we need to learn when running a business is what you offer. Thanks. Keep it up girl!

    What happens if you've done all of this, and been doing all of this, along with networking for 9 months and it hasn't brought any clients. I've had a few nibbles. One I contacted several times, but I can't seem to get her to sign a contract in spite of being told constantly that she will. I honestly think she's blowing me off, which is fine, but I'm still having a hard time finding clients.

    I keep getting told "Wow, what a great idea. Incredibly useful". But no one signs.

    I love your videos, they're always so informative.Not sure what the word 'janky' means as we don't have that in Britain but I know all about 'pro-fess!' As a graduate of B-School (last year) I've followed your brilliant advice & implemented. I still need to do some guest blogging & get on with some press releases. PRWeb is a great source that I've found for helping distribute press releases so I'll be using this in the future. Looking forward to watching more of your great videos.

  8. Jane Frankland says:

    Forgot to like your video on how to build a reputation when you've just started your business! So I'm watching again! Won't do any harm 🙂

  11. Knucklehead Studios says:

    From what it looks like you have a hard time closing the sale. Customers are fickle fish until their satisfied. My advice….New Tuesday Q&A!!!! lol, cause I have that problem as well. I can have the whole package but when it comes to signing…dead in the water.

  28. HowToBringBackTheRomance says:

    Simple but important steps.

  29. Dachia Arritola says:

    Something else a person could do, while they are waiting for the phone to ring, is peruse online articles in their field and comment on the article, giving sage advice as they can. For example, in the above situation, Jillian could find places online where students or teachers and school counselors might hang out (probably very different places 😉 ) and mention what great opportunities for gap years are available, and discuss why so many colleges and universities are supportive of taking a year off before matriculating. And then watch those threads for further questions or responses to your post.

  30. Leila Roberts says:

    Marie you have been a massive inspiration to me starting my business thank you so much for sharing. 

  31. John Madison says:

    I feel like the attitude portrayed in this video came off a bit insincere and condescending. It kind of reminded me of how adults talk to little kids.
    I take it I am not the target demographic for this video. So maybe my opinion isn't important here. But my guess is that my feelings here are somewhat related to the other hostile comments I see on this thread.

  32. Marketing Offline Online says:

  35. EMPOWER CHUA says:

    Interesting and tips are good and simple.
    Agreed 100% it work.
    Thanks so much.
    You are really loud and clear.

  36. Frances says:

    Great tips! Also another tip that I am using to get testimonies for the tutoring company I'm starting is to ask people that you have helped in the past since chances are if you're starting a business you have experience in this field before.  Just because someone isn't your current client doesn't mean they can't give a testimony to your work.  

    Thanks again! 

  37. Nerissa M says:

    Way #4 – I would say go beyond just getting a testimonial if you're going to offer your services for free. Think about creating a case study: outline in detail what problem the client had that you solved and how you solved it. If you have results, include those too. Then you can have the testimonial on your site and link it back to the case study. Yay, content!

  38. Dallas SEO Agency says:

    Love your video. You provide great info in a fun and profeshhh way. Love the tip about getting reviews in exchange for a discounted rate! 

  39. Polite Q says:

    Way # 6: Make Youtube videos where you squeal in a cutesy voice with fake enthusiasm.

    "I have considered offering a free trial in exchange for link analytics from my website to the affiliate I promote, with concrete demographics you can justify a particular fee?"This type of exchange can serve both of us"

  77. Amirhossein Farahani says:

    In all your video thumbnails, the last word of the title is hidden under the time block in the thumbnail preview area. It would be better if you'd left aligned the titles. Great content too?

  78. D • says:

    You are 110% C.R.A.Z.Y and I love it. XD

    I might be the only guy here but hey knowledge isn't gender oriented, great video btw it's exactly what I needed, you just got a BIG thumbs up

  84. Aegon Conqueror says:

    This is glorious, I've been looking for "a business entrepreneur" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Bavordcon Business Bohemian – (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my colleague got amazing results with it.

  85. Vikas R says:

    Get SEO done on your site. Being on first page of Google is a great way to create positive branding, get lots of qualified enquiries and sales. It takes two to three months to see results but it's worth it in the end.

  86. Carmela Aimee says:

    Love how you showed the difference of confidence in telling people what you do. I find it a little difficult because there isn't a title for what I am! Hahaha. So, I'll have to figure that out, but even if I don't full know what to say… I can still say it with confidence!

  87. D.Ariadne Freitas says:
