Do you provide digital services and looking for foreign clients, then this article can help you with finding out foreign leads with free simple strategies. I will also share some tips to close those foreign leads, hence stick to this blog post till the end.
First thing first, why one should look for foreign clients in the first place when we already have so much big market of potential Indian clients, which are also easy to close.
The answer to this is pretty straightforward, we all know foreign clients pay in dollars and thus closing foreign clients can lead to high ticket closing. Another thing, there is a lot of headaches in handling Indian clients from payment related issues to explain the workflow and technical aspects related to projects. If you had ever worked in a digital agency or done freelancing you can understand this pain.
Hence I recommend targeting foreign clients from the USA, UK, etc.

Follow that account, follow their activities for several days and also engaging with them and then pitch them through the Twitter message box. In this way, you will know their traits as well coz you are following them for a long and thus lead to warm pitch to those potential clients.

Hence you can target potential clients based on all the aspects mentioned above.
Let’s say you provide marketing services, through Crunchbase you well know the startups which recently got the funding and be willing to spend a good chunk on marketing. Thus you can take out email id and social media accounts of the founders and owners of those startups and start pitching.
Utilizing BuiltWith to Generate Foreign Leads.
BuiltWith is a platform that provides information related to, which website uses what technologies and vice versa. Now you may ask, “how this will help you to get foreign clients?”. And that is where my strategy will come into place.
BuiltWith can help us to find technologies our potential clients are using by searching out keywords which are related to our services or digital product. Thus we can extract out data of the people who are using our competitor’s technology and pitch them ours instead. As they are already using the similar service/product which you provide, if you are able to convince them that your service/product is better than the one they are using, they will be happy to switch.
Another thing is, as you will already know which platform, they are utilizing for them, this can drastically increase your conversation and pitch, which can lead to better closure probability.
