How to get clients

Hi Coaches,

I am wondering how you convert readers to clients? I am in the process if list building and have added a lot of new people to my email list. Ive also gained about 2,000 instagram followers in my niche. I am offerring my free sessions 1-2 times a week and in all DMs but no luck. Ive had a few who have signed up but end up being no shows despite confirmation emails/texts from acuity. Im feeling a little defeated ans certainly doing my thought work on this. Im just wondering if theres anything else I could be doing. Whats the best way to get clients in the beginning? Thanks so much!
