6 Ways to Increase Client Buy-off of Your Consulting Solutions – BYB025

By Corbin Links

Are you suffering from Email Overload?

How do those seemingly endless email threads affect your productivity? I’m talking about those times when you send out something specific, get a reply with questions, answer the questions, get more questions, and suddenly you are in an endless loop of replies. I call this “mail topic saturation” and i have a 5-point system to decrease or outright eliminate that endless mail back and forth.

You meet with the client, you get clear on the clients’ needs, you start a new project, you spend time developing solutions . . . maybe the client is interested, maybe even committed . . . but then they decide otherwise.

How’s that for frustrating?

More to the point, if this situation comes up too often, it can be career-damaging. Consulting and coaching portfolios are based on results obtained from YOUR direct efforts . . . I’ve got a 6-point framework to dramatically improve your client acceptance rate, and get them moving on your solutions, you won’t want to miss this week’s Bangin’ Your Business Segment.
