With that said let's jump into things, you should never forget meeting a prospective digital marketing client.
1. Be critical about creating the first impression
Digital Marketing clients can be of various ticket sizes, small ticket clients, medium ticket clients, and high ticket clients; whatever you want to name it.
If you have managed to get a meeting with a high ticket client then it's fairly obvious that you are going to have to be very critical of minutest detail. High ticket clients need to know whether you can handle their projects or not.
One way to create a good impression is by booking the meet at a professional meeting room.
Professional Meeting Rooms are a thing now, your high ticket client would much rather not prefer meeting you at a local coffee shop, even you would realize the same in a few moments as distractions begin pulling up with anxieties.
You and your prospective client need to be in an environment where you have the space to breathe, make a decision calmly and communicate the proposition properly.
2. Do your homework
It doesn't take much convincing that you are going to have to do plenty of research, extensive research before you meet your prospective client in person.
You need to know every bit of detail about his business more vividly than he does. That's not all that you need to know, you should also be prepared with all the strategies that you can deploy to boom his business in the 'digital', be prepared with counter-arguments if they may take place which they probably would. You as well as the client should leave the meeting knowing that no stones were left unturned.
3. Speak the language that your client understands
Not in the literal sense, but more in the sense that you should not make things sophisticated for the client, explain things in an easy to understand way. While explaining things simply make sure that you don't end up making the client feel like an idiot; condescension has a way of doing just that.
So, there it is with these 3 tips you can really crush that next client meeting and get that client. Always invest time in research and educating yourself.
