Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
I'm wondering, where do the bigger agencies (mobile or otherwise) find their leads?
Yes, yes. I know. Referrals. This is like the stock answer I get every time.
But surely there must be something their doing so they can get the 5K-100k projects?
Other than inbound marketing (social, websites, blogs, etc) and working the phones of their current clients (if they have any) -- what are they finding these leads?
The only other thing I can think of is they form relationships with other agencies, perhaps even JV.
It baffles me. I know of things like tenders, but these are long, complicated, boring and lots of paperwork; but usually the projects I see the bigger agencies are getting aren't tenders but new clients (not existing ones).
So, where are the big boys finding their leads?
