We believe how you communicate with clients impacts the relationship's long-term success, making it crucial to continually improve and refine communication skills.

8 Steps We Take to Build Strong Relationships

Once you start the communication loop, it's valuable to close it by not leaving any questions unanswered or concerns out in the open. While this list is not comprehensive of all we do, it is an overview of how we approach communication with each of our partners:

  1. Communicate often and clearly. While this may seem straightforward, it is often one of the biggest challenges within client relationships. Everyone has different communication styles, so it's imperative to learn how our partners prefer to communicate (email, phone, video, in person), how often (daily, weekly, monthly), as well as the best way to approach urgent matters. How we communicate also matters. Even if the client understands the basics of our services, sharing raw data or results with little to no explanation and background can leave room for error and misunderstandings later on.
  2. Honesty is always the best policy. Mistakes happen, and it's always best to be upfront and honest when they do occur. The same goes for recommendations and feedback. If our client asks you for our opinion, we approach it with an honest and professional stance backed by market research and what we believe will propel our clients closer to their goals. Differences of opinion are always welcome, as they provide a platform to discover inventive solutions.
  3. Treat your client as an individual, not a business. Getting to know our partners as individuals is a core belief for us. We take strides to better understand their limits and how much we can ask of them and their team. By respecting their time, budget and other factors, our relationship has a chance to grow long-term.
  4. Learn to speak your client's language. Each industry has its own language. Taking the time to understand what the new acronyms stand for, which analytics matter most to their team, and who their competition is; shows them how invested we are in their business and its success.
  5. Show genuine enthusiasm while remaining professional. When successes occur, share in their excitement. We believe that when we partner with a client, we are an extension of their business and its growth, so when we reach a goal we've been working hard to complete, we love to celebrate alongside the team.
  6. Keep an open mind. While we know the ins and outs of digital marketing, our clients bring their own experiences to the table. Keeping an open mind, especially while brainstorming new campaign ideas, social media content, website updates etc., ensures our clients always feel welcome and heard.
  7. Understand your capabilities to avoid overselling. It can be tempting to say yes to everything. After all, we're in the business of helping our clients succeed and grow their brand. However, understanding what you can offer, along with your limitations, can help you avoid problems in the future. Overselling and underdelivering goes against our core value of providing quality work and integrity-based exclusive partnerships for mutual growth.
  8. Ask for (and listen to) feedback. If our clients have input on our performance or communication, we always listen without bias and reflect. Client feedback provides a new perspective and opportunity for growth, strengthens the partnership through positive communication and can help you to better communicate in the future.
