In a recent interview I gave, one of the questions asked was:
Any tips on developing trust with new buyers?
This is what I had to say about it:
Just do the job and do it well – that’s the best way to build trust and credibility.
Because I had to keep my answers relatively succinct, I going to elaborate on that answer a bit here…
A job well done is your best promotional tool
People talk. The question is, what will they say about you?
There’s only so much your profile and cover letters can do for you – they show you can talk the talk. What you need to do next is prove you can walk the walk.
Word of mouth is a powerful tool, and it goes both ways: good and bad. It should go without saying that you want to do the best possible job on all of your assignments.
How I cook
5 parts: Coffee
4 parts: Speed
4 parts: Precision
3 parts: Communication
2 parts: Perfectionism
A dash: My Awesomely Awesome AwesomenessTM
Soften ½ of the communication and pour into a large bowl. Sip coffee. Add speed, precision, and perfectionism. Beat until mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Sip coffee while beating. Fold in remaining communication steadily and beat until mixture starts to solidify. Continue to sip coffee. Sprinkle with a dash of Awesomely Awesome AwesomenessTM and serve while fresh…with coffee.
