BUT... the problem with your question is the word "easier".
Getting more clients is harder. If it was easy then everyone would be rich already. You have to lose the desire to become successful by doing less work. Do not be afraid of doing more! You will become successful when you start doing things that other people are unwilling to do. Like working harder.
Think about it. You already (presumably) do a certain level of work, but that has not been enough and you have identified the desire to increase your wealth. You think the best way to do that is to increase sales by getting more clients. BUT... you want to do less work than you are already doing (but you do not mention what that actually is). So the million dollar question is "Easier than what!?"
How is it possible to increase sales by doing less?
Well, it seems to me that if you had a business plan it would help you answer your own question. Who is your target market? What do they want? What do they do?
There is ABSOLUTELY no substitute for understanding your business and your target market. You can go pass out flyers all day. If not one person in your target market picks one up, then you have just wasted a huge amount of time.
