This Week’s Sponsor: Offboarding for Success Mini-Course
In the events industry, we spend a lot of time talking about how to properly onboard our clients, and that’s great. We need to do that 100%. Onboarding your clients sets expectations and helps provide clear boundaries for working together. It really is essential for a healthy client-vendor relationship.
But offboarding–how you handle your clients after their event–is just as essential. Your clients are so invested in you and with you as you work on their event. If you just drop them like a hot potato afterward, you leave them with no framework on what to do next. They want to support you and refer you, but they don’t know how to do that.
So this is whee a strong offboarding workflow is essential to your long-term profitability. This new mini-course will teach you all you need to know to turn your clients into raving fans, get more referrals and more reviews, and set yourself up for sustainable success. Look, eventually, we will be going back to live events, and so it’s even more crucial now to turn every single client into a life-long client.
