How To Ask for the Sale – Part 1 | How To Close Deals With Design Clients

How can I ask clients for new business without it being uncomfortable? I’m not good at sales, how do I ask? How To Seal The Deal With Clients & Build Long Term Relationships.

Guage the relationship of potential clients: affinity & Vibe, Checking if business can be done and if you can afford the service. For what Jose says about investing time to plant goodwill and trust, it definitely works and you’ll reap karma equity.

When Chris facilitates with people he builds that ‘goodwill and karmic equity’ by being willing to put away all personal interests if its not a good fit, or its not what the client actually needs. Hunter versus Planter of Opportunities, both different but like Jose said, a good mix of both makes for good business.
