Have you ever met someone for the first time and left a lasting impression without even trying? That's precisely what happened when I recently had a meeting with a new email marketing client.
During our conversation, I was focused on getting to know his business and his ideal avatar. I was asking him thought-provoking questions that showed I was invested in understanding his unique needs and goals.
The client was impressed with the conversation we were having and he even mentioned how happy he is working with me so far! IN THE FIRST MEETING!
What's even more impressive is that the client hasn't even received a single email from me yet, but he's already impressed with my professionalism.
By showing up with care, being of service, and asking the right questions, I was able to establish trust and demonstrate my commitment to his success.
It’s about being present, attentive, and genuinely interested in the needs of others. When we take the time to show that, when we do our research, we build relationships that are built on trust, honesty, and mutual respect.
It’s essential to remember that building strong relationships with clients starts with showing up and being prepared. It's about asking the right questions and demonstrating a genuine interest in their needs. By doing so, we establish a foundation for long-lasting and productive partnerships.
