Revealed: Secret Ways to Win New Clients in Business Meetings

Revealed: Secret Ways to Win New Clients in Business Meetings

Let us guess. You have a business meeting coming up in a few days, week or months and you are wandering through the internet looking for some suggestions and ideas to make it go smooth.[1] Well, you are not alone.

We have done this too at some point before our meetings, and we know what it is like to burn your eyes reading through the uncountable number of business articles to find the one that sounds worth trying. We understand how much of a painful drag it is to read through the never-ending pieces of writing, so we decided to help you by putting together some of the most effective advice that you must try to make sure that your business meeting goes well.

Have the Meeting in a Familiar Place to Boost Your Confidence

The place that you are familiar with will always serve as the best region for your performance that you put up in a meeting. Whenever given a chance to decide where the meeting should be held, go for your own office’s conference room. If you are into sports, you would know that a team always does well on its home ground and business meetings follow a similar trend too. You become more confident when you are in a familiar place, and you can utilise this confidence to a good effect.

Give a Professional Presentation to Win Your Client’s Trust

Presentations speak for what you offer, so always make them look professional. It doesn’t matter what you are offering. What is more important is how well you put up that offer in your PPTs and how you deliver the message with certainty. Doing this will make your client believe that you are specialized in your area of working, and it will be beneficial for you to achieve your target in the meetings.

Don’t Keep Talking About the Future Plan, Highlight Your Achievements Occasionally

In the off-meeting conversations and during the meetings make sure that you slip in the results of your company so that your clients can trust your work. Not only the presentations, when you create a website of your services or product let there be a section that highlights the achievements of your work because your clients will always check it before attending a meeting with you. In the meetings, show your previous works that are relevant to that of asked by your clients so that they can know what your capabilities are.

Know Your Audience Well so You Can Satisfy Their Expectations

Conducting a meeting is like performing on a stage, and the clients are your audience. Know what your audience (or clients) like. Some clients may be into the plain old textual type of presentations while some clients may expect more of the visuals and samples in the meeting. Make sure that you give your clients exactly what they want. A common mistake that rookies make during the presentations is to lose the track while trying to make it look impressive. Do understand that, while trying to impress is not a bad idea at all, but your clients would not appreciate it if they find no relevance of their work in the presentation you put up.

Knowing your clients in advance will also help you to be confident in front of them,[2] and you can probably expect what kind of questions might come from them based on their concerns about your services or the products you offer.

Dress Smart and Look Smart to Display Your Confidence

We can’t fall short of words to tell you how important your appearance is in a business meeting. Forget the business meeting; appearance is important everywhere. Consciously or not, we have a tendency to judge people by how they carry themselves in front of us. You do not have to overdo it, just keep it simple. Make sure that you do not compromise your comfort to look good; there is always a right balance for it. Wear the colors that suit you the best. Based on the type of meeting, wear the right kind of dress that make you look professional.

Clothes are not the only things that will make you look good. Carry a confident smile with you throughout the presentation and also watch out for the gestures you make, how you sit and all the postures of yours.

Make the meeting your stage to perform and be the show-stopper on the day of the meeting. There are a lot of things apart from the product you offer that decides the fate of the deal you are there for as we mentioned above. Increase the chances of sealing the deal that you wish for by performing well in these kinds of meetings by using the advice that we have referred to above.

10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

How big is the gap between you and your success?

What is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people?

It is as simple as this: successful people think and talk about what they are creating, and unsuccessful people focus on and talk about what they’re lacking.

So how do you bridge that gap between wanting success and having your success? Let’s make an important distinction. You see, there is a big difference between “Wanting” and “Having” something.

Wanting: means lacking or absent. Deficient in some part, thing or aspect.

Having: means to possess, to hold, to get, to receive, to experience.

You can have one OR the other, but not both at the same time with any particular object of your desire. You either have it or you don’t.

When it comes to your subconscious, if you’re focusing on the “wanting”, i.e. the not having, guess what, you will build stronger neural networks in your brain around the “wanting.” However, through the power of your subconscious mind, you can focus on the “having” as if it has already happened. Research has shown that your brain doesn’t know the difference between what you’re visualizing inside your mind versus what is happening out there in your reality.

This is a regular practice of elite athletes. They spend as much timing creating the internal mental imagery of their success playing out as they do actually physically practicing. This helps create both the neural pathways in their brain and the muscle memory to consistently deliver on that success.

Here are 10 “brain hack” steps for success that you can take to create your version of a happy life. Make these steps a regular habit, and you will be astonished at the results.

Step 1: Decide exactly what you want to create and have

This is usually the biggest problem that people have. They don’t know what they want and then they’re surprised when they don’t get it.

Step 2: Write down your goal clearly in every technicolor detail

A goal that is not written down is merely a wish. When you write it down in full detail, you signal to your subconscious mind that you really want to accomplish this particular goal.

Step 3: Write your goal in simple, present tense words

…that a three year old can understand on a three-by-five index card and carry it with you. Read it each morning after you awake and just before you go to sleep.

Step 4: Backwards planning

See your goal achieved and identify all the steps required that it took to bring it to life. Making a list of all these steps intensifies your desire and deepens your belief that the attainment of the goal is already happening.

Step 5: Resolve to take at least one step every day from one of the items on your list

Do something every day, even if it is just one baby step, that moves you toward your goal so you can maintain your momentum.

Step 6: Visualize your goal repeatedly

See it in your mind’s eye as though it were already a reality. The more clear and vivid your mental picture of your goal, the faster it will come into your life.

Step 7: Feel the feeling of success as if your goal were realized at this very moment

Feel the emotion of happiness, satisfaction, and pleasure that you would have once you have achieved your goal. Visualize and feel this success for at least 20 seconds at a time.

Step 8: “Fake it till you make it!”

Confidently behave as if your subconscious mind was already bringing your goal into reality. Accept that you are moving toward your goal and it is moving toward you.

Step 9: Relax your mind

Take time to breathe, pray or mediate each day. Disengage the stress response and engage the relaxation response. A quiet state of mind allows your brain to access newly formed neural pathways.

Step 10: Release your goal to your subconscious mind

When you turn your goal over to the power of the universe and just get out of the way, you will always know the right actions to take at the right time.

Starting today, try tapping into the incredible power of your subconscious mind.Start with just one goal or idea, and practice it continually until you succeed in achieving that goal. Make it a game and have fun with it! The more lightly you hold it, the easier it will be to achieve. By doing so, you will move from the “positive thinking” of the hopeful person to the “positive knowing” of the totally successful person.

To your success!
