Where Did All The Investors Go?

Wouldn’t it be nice, if someone walked up to you and said…

“Hi, my name is Joe and I’m an investor. I want to allow you to use my money in your deals!”

Keep dreaming.

Investors are typically not hiding. It’s just that you don’t know where to look for them. Once you find them, you have to get their attention. They don’t all go around in fancy cars or private planes – some are in plain sight – it’s just that you don’t know it, or haven’t been able to see behind the facade.

There are plenty of places to go and find investors. If you want to catch fish, you can go out into the big sea and wait. Or you can go to the place where fish are and use a net. The choice is yours.

Here are a couple of them for you to start out with… trust me, this is only the tip of the iceberg.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Linkedin (LNKD) – you probably think linkedin is a job searching tool. What some don’t see it as is a customer/client prospecting tool. Given the online presence of so many businesses – the managers of those companies are also available (granted not all, but something is better than nothing). And you want to know where those investors are lurking… in the groups. If you have some knowledge or insight to share, by all means – share it! Investors are reading your stuff.

Facebook (FB) – Ha! Really? Yes… Really. It’s just that you don’t know that baby boomer who was extremely successful and fairly rich checking out her grandson’s snaps. Yet they’re their.

Twitter (TWTR) – You’d be surprised how this ADHD platform has a number of VCs using it – and some even prefer those 140 character limits, because they’re overburdened with email that blabbers on. Short and sweet.

YouTube (GOOGL) – yes, investors watch videos – just like you and me. And sometimes, they actually comment on them. It’s just that you have to know what to listen for when they comment.
