Decided to post something different from all the 'need help' question being posted recently.
I want to ask the webflow forum community about customer acquisition.
Specifically what are your techniques you utilise when meeting clients for the first time face to face. No emails or phone calls, just walking into a small business and speaking to the manager, or if your lucky the owner.
What is your opening line?, what techniques do you use to get them to spend five minutes of their time to discuss what services you are offering?
Personally i spend some time first identifying a potential customer (one without a website or one with a very old and outdated site, especially in the mobile responsiveness component). Then i prepare a list of sites that showcase unique and beautiful designs that would capture the clients creative attention, along with showcasing sites i have built for other clients. From here its a matter of meeting the client face to face, which i prefer as i find emails and even phone calls just don't work, its much harder for someone to say no to someones face than just deleting an email, or saying 'no thank you' on a phone call.
What is everyone's thoughts on this?? Would make an interesting discussion for sure.
