Tips for Conducting Meetings with your Clients After Being Offered The Project
Usually, introductory sessions and regular meetings with a client can take numerous forms, such as face-to-face, video calls, or over the phone conversations. However, due to the remote nature of most jobs and the current COVID 19 situation, video meetings through online platforms such as Zoom, GoToMeeting, and Google Hangouts Meet are becoming more and more preferable.
Prospective Clients can also choose to approach you through the platform via the messaging system. If and when experts are requested to engage with their clients through video calls, Consult Xperts highly recommends the following tips;
- Be well dressed and look professional
- Set up your background to look neutral and business-like to avoid distractions.
- Always have good lightings that clearly shows your face and makes you look professional
- Conduct the meeting in a quiet and private space
- Always check your internet connection and test your video conferencing software to avoid any technical issues.
- Mute your side of the call when you are not speaking as your microphone can pick up background noises.
- Focus on visual cues to know when its time for you to speak (Platforms like Zoom offer virtual “raise hand” and other features which can be used to avoid interruptions)
- Learn how to navigate the platforms being used for the meeting beforehand. (Features such as screen sharing are useful during project discussions)
- Always stay focused and attentive and try to fully engage during the conversation.
