Building a positive relationship with your clients is key if you want to be successful as a freelancer.
However, many freelancers have difficulty interacting with their clients in a way that fosters that good relationship.
It’s important that your clients know they’re being heard and that you do everything you can to make sure that happens.
Outsourced Freelancing Success offers some fantastic advice that will help you interact with your clients the right way and build successful relationships that will last.
“Your focus should be on a win-win approach, and here’s how that looks:
- Always relate what you’re saying to your client, use their words, their terminology so that they understand what you’re saying
- Encourage your clients to be open and honest with you, get them to share information and problems with you so you have the whole picture
- Pimp your clients out! Be their advocate. And if you can’t, then you shouldn’t be working with that client. If you don’t believe in what they are doing, it will show through in your work. So cut the ties if this is the case”
