Finding the “right” business professional can be challenging and often frustrating. When was the last time you were handed a list of names by an insurance company and told to randomly pick a doctor? What was it like when a friend referred you to an attorney and they were completely incompatible? How frustrating was it to look through webpage after webpage of the same text and image of consultants talking about themselves and not what matters to you?
Successful relationships start with trust, rapport, and a connection with what clients care about. The first few moments of an initial interaction is critical. People consider not only skills and credentials, but also your personality, style, approach, and the willingness to educate them on what matters most. And video is the new gateway to more and more successful client and business relationships.
