Brain Picking time. How does room rental work at the start?
I was wondering what peoples experiences are?
If you want to rent a room in a new area starting from scratch (no client base). How have you gone about it? Obviously paying out daily/hourly rates with no bookings is crazy. So how did you build a client base in advance of room rental? Is this even possible?
Any thoughts and insights from those who have had similar experiences would be greatly appreciated.

|Hi, I've recently moved from being only mobile to having a base 3 days a week. I ran a Groupon offer - it's not ideal as you don't get paid much, but it helps towards the room rental and brings new clients in. And some of those clients are re-booking at full rate. Other suggestions if you're moving to a new area is join a networking group in your new area and run a launch offer.|

|Or the other option if you haven't already found a room, is look for one that only charges you a percentage of what you earn.|

How did the Groupon deal work? Did you find the room then approach Groupon?
I'm also mobile at the moment, but wolud like to rent a room for a couple of days to start with.

Groupon wanted me to have a base before they would let me run an offer with them - I had previously tried to do it when I was mobile but they wouldn't let me. I'm now in my room full time and have a lot of Groupon customers coming through. Quite a few of them have re-booked with me directly - I'm hoping that at some point soon I'll have enough regulars to be able to ditch Groupon, but in the meantime it is helping a lot. Although I've been so busy I'm suffering with my hands and back, but that's another conversation!

Thanks for the information. I have looked at the grpupon web site and it seems like they on accept people who are mobile, althought I think this kind deal works better if you have a base.
