I still remember the first social media marketing client prospect I spoke to for practice.

It was the most nervous I had ever been in my life to the point my arms and hands were heavily shaking.

I overcame this fear with practice, dedication, and inner confidence building.

In this video I discuss how I got my first social media marketing client, and give my best advice for getting yours.

We also cover an exact script you can use to help you get your first few clients, as well as how to structure your meetings with your clients.

Hope you enjoy!

Hey I’m going to be completely honest with you.

I’m just getting started helping [niche] [get result] with [Facebook ads] and I want to build a name for myself and in order to do that I need to get some big results for some key clients.

I was wondering if you would be interested in letting me run some Facebook ads to bring some new customers for you for free.

All I require is a case study, testimonial, and 3 referrals once you see great results.

  7. Hamza L. says:

    What’s your ratio between sales and profit billy?

  8. Seth Brodie says:

    This was good advice… Wondering if you had any advice on if you should get a business partner or not… Already know how to sell social media marketing from working at another company and I am decent at online marketing… If you were me would you get a partner that is really good at sales and I would do the marketing. Or would you start it by yourself?

  9. Stavro Korkes says:

    Hey Billy just wanna let you know that I just had my first ever meeting with a business and got them to commit to a paid trial for a week. This is all through the power of your youtube videos!!!! Preciate the great work brother!

  10. Kasra M says:

    Should I give one week or 2 weeks trail??

  11. undiluted sport says:

    Can you recommend a mentor for me

  12. undiluted sport says:

    Great video big guy

  13. Posting Productions says:

    Great video Billy. So as far as the free trial....I get that you want to get great results to prove yourself to them. But for example you will get better results with a landing page than the FB ad form. Do you put in the time and effort for free going through the process of creating them a landing page? The question much time/effort do you really give for free? Just a basic FB ad run? No extras?

  14. Keenan Smith says:

    My issue with this is instead of trying to start of a business, the mentality should switch to being a student approach and only using that to not continue to get clients but rather to get proven cases to actually join a real agency, get MUCH better clients to work for with big budgets, and then after a year go work for yourself if you wanted to.

    There's soo much more that goes into this and when you're going at it by yourself, with no technical skills, and being able to pay out appropriately for many hats to wear by having a team, this is why newbie will and continue to fail.

    People that succeed in this are actually great salesmen WITH a proven portfolio item. It's very rare someone is willing to let you just run ads with no credibility to prove what you say is true so you end up with shitty clients that expect the world from you on a $100 budget.

    You're essentially working with broke people as a broke person. That will not work out for either one of you.

    Here's some real advice, getting clients to let you run paid ads is harder to come by without a proven portfolio item than it is to go do SEO with any youtube video to build out or setting up a Keyword Search Account on excel to show opportunities of approach through Google Ads (Not Facebook Ads.)

    Newbies always look for the easiest way in from the perception on the outside which does look like Facebook but in reality, it's the harder things in perception that are actually the low barrier and there's more to learn for it than Facebook which is more simplistic.

    If you want to learn how to do this right, go look up Seth Hymes or Andrew West and join either program so you can go get a job and do this correctly.

    Running a business should be a later goal because once you actually work with clients from fortune 500 companies, no one will doubt what you say and getting these $10k-$20k clients is A LOT easier to speak with than you doing this from what Billy is saying.

  15. Ian Ramos says:

    What kind of results could you get for a client in 2 weeks? What should they expect?

  16. Maurice Gear says:

    Nice job Billy.. I definitely recommend the free trail method its an excellent way to get your first couple of clients...Thanks😎

  17. NinjaKiller999 says:

    Thank you for another great video Billy. I was wondering since you agree that skills and getting results is the most important thing, what has helped you get better at fb ads than your competitor? Not sure where to start. Cheers!

  18. hansonel says:

    Great advice for those starting out.

    I'm glad you said something very important since it seems a lot of people lately have been jumping into SMMA trying to get rich quick: "You should not start a social media agency, or any kind of agency, if you're trying to get rich quickly." Building an agency is about delivering results and adding value for your clients. If you're in it only for the money that's not going to work out well for anyone in the long run.

    Is landscaping a potential niche? I know a couple of them...

  20. Alex Bianchi - Define Wisdom says:

    This is really useful! My family has 3 bushiness's and an extensive connection to the local area so i know once I feel confident in my knowledge of running the business I am ready to start. I think its going to be great to do part time in college and will serve as good content for my youtube channel!

  23. Trent Bell says:

    If a client asked "what is my return on investment?" wouldn't you just ask if they had an increase in sales compared to the months before?
