“Ways and ideas on making sure you build a solid working relationship with the booking client”
Today we are going to look at a vital area of the trivia business and that is the relationship you build with the booking client! At the end of the day, you have to consider the fact that in any trivia related transaction you are perhaps only the third most important party…..the customers and the booking client come way before you and their considerations have to matter. Whether you can’t stand the client or have a generally favorable opinion of him/her, you need to ensure that a rapport is built up as this will mean they will continue to book you and are unlikely to go elsewhere when in need or trivia services.
This is going to sound like brown nosing and “sucking up the boss” a little but at the end of the day…business is business and you need to do what it takes to get the trivia edge….
Build a Rapport with Your Booking Client – Avoid the mundane
Although at the end of the day what you are essentially doing with your booking client is trying to make them pay you for your services. There is a sales pitch, an invoice and a cost so everything on the outside is business like transactions. But the rapport that goes with it needs to be strong. If you simply cash the cheque, collect the payment, turn up and leave all in quick succession at every trivia event without so much as a hello or asking how business is going etc then you will find the chances of you losing that job increase. If you can turn the business arrangement into something with a bit more of a rapport then you will find it is far less likely that your services will be discontinued and it will make potentially awkward business conversations much easier (for example you demanding a pay rise as you have been so great!).
