In this episode, I’m sharing my 5 tips for getting your clients to sign off on your designs! I’ll also share a bonus nugget which is basically how we do it in my own design firm.
Once you establish a way of doing things inside your business, it gives you more confidence to sell your services and designs and inspires clients to have confidence in you.
But I totally understand that getting clients to sign off on every single bit of your design can be a complicated process when you’re starting out or don’t set expectations from the beginning.
My basic 5 tips to get clients to sign off are:
- Set expectations early & often
- Always present in person
- Run a great presentation with samples to have clients touch and feel items (fabrics, tiles, etc)
- Be clear and firm about the revisions period
- Have a system in place to get their actual signature on your package (ie. DocuSign)
These are just some tips and tricks that have worked in my business and with my process. I would love to hear what you do that helps clients sign off on your designs, or what struggles you face during this part of your design process.
