What I Wish I Knew When Potential Clients Call
Vetting and acquiring new clients is one of the tasks that many designers have an aversion to, but when a referral or an inquiry comes in, many designers expend time and effort reinventing the wheel because they don't have a clear and simple process for responding. Equally important, you may have been thinking about ways you can be more efficient and streamline your non-design tasks, and our goal is to offer you a solution. In this webinar, Genevieve Trousdale, founder of Circaphiles, and Gain Baral, Mindset Coach and Business Strategy Mentor for Creative Business Owners, will share valuable tips on how to master a discovery call, create an authentic connection with your client, strategies to help you spot “the good clients” and the confidence to elegantly walk away when the voice in your head is telling you to "run".
