Satisfied clients are the most credible ambassadors for your practice.
Potential clients really want to know what your prior clients have experienced with you. It helps them know you are the real deal.
The only way you’ll discover what your clients would say to someone thinking about working with you is to ask them the question.
Some attorneys are reluctant to ask for testimonials because they are uncertain what the client would say.
They fear negative feedback, don’t want to impose on the client’s time, or find other excuses not to do it.
But when you do ask you can get amazing feedback that makes you feel good – and helps others know what it is like to work with you. It allows you to help more of the people you were meant to serve.
Like what happened when I asked a recent client: “What would you say to someone thinking of working with me?”
Here’s what he said:
“Doug was very insightful in making suggestions to better manage time and helped me focus on developing goal-oriented plans. I feel that I now have a great roadmap to reach my goals in the short, intermediate, and long terms. Doug’s coaching produced tangible results for me in the form of increased profits for my firm and general attitude improvement. … I can truly say that I feel happier, more productive, and am on my way to reaching my ultimate goals.”
I was honored to receive David’s heartfelt words. That’s why I do this work. To make a lasting difference for my clients.
That’s probably why you do your work as well.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know what they say about you when you’re not around?
Go ahead and ask. You’ll be happy you did.
P.S. … Coaches help successful athletes see possibilities they cannot. They stay focused on the goal while the athlete says focused on preparing and executing to meet the goal. Coaches act as the beacon to direct them when they lose focus. Successful business owners, like you, hire coaches for the same reasons.
