It’s Time To Respect Your Clients

It’s Time To Respect Your Clients

I’ve come to the realization that  most service-based business professionals don’t respect their clients. It could even be said that you hold contempt for the very clients on whom you depend on for financial success and economic well-being. That’s disturbing to consider, but I think it’s true.

How do I know you’ve lost respect for clients? Because you don’t tell them how your work benefits them. Furthermore, you’re willing to work on projects that are just outside your best skill set all because you fail to stand on solid positioning.

Proper Positioning Can Solve Lots of Problems

Why did you get into business? Without knowing you what you do, I’d guess that you like to solve problems. Very specific problems for very specific customers.

Emails And Phone Calls: What Did You Say?

Emails and Phone Calls: What Did You Say?

Years ago, the predominant form of business communication was the formal business letter. The texture and color of the paper, the appeal of the logo, and the reverence given to content and grammar was essential. Everything had to be just perfect; two spaces here, three returns there, and never closer than a half inch from the bottom. Formal business correspondence had VERY specific rules and etiquette, including who typed the letter. A poorly written letter and improperly addressed envelope was a direct reflection on you and your company, also known as your brand.
