    Very good article Darren. I am a “job creator” – LOL. The law of 25 is a great concept to believe in, as there is always six degrees of seperation and new business is to be found as long as you are moving in the right direction.

    Keep up the good articles.

    Couldn’t agree with you more! Gotta get out there and network with everybody. Following up on “dead” leads or calling customers you worked for a while ago is what you need to do. Nothing wrong with persistence as long as it is respectful. For small contracting companies that don’t have the office staff to do this, they can find office assistance company’s or marketing consultants (like me) who will do this for clients!

    Darren, this post is a must for every business out there. Contacting 25 folks and using a CRM to keep up with it (i.e., Zoho CRM, by the way it’s free) is a recipe for success for any business out there.

      Contracting is a contact sport Mike! Thanks for commenting!
