Creative professionals often have trouble presenting their creative ideas to clients. It can be hard to get past the excitement of creating and into the business of selling those ideas. But by following these tips, you’ll be more prepared and confident when it’s time to pitch your work.
1. Don’t be afraid to speak up. This is your idea, so own it! Concentrate on selling your creative idea to the client – let them see how great it is!
2. Practice, practice, practice. The more comfortable you are with your pitch, the better.
3. Visualize success. See yourself calmly and confidently presenting your work – and see the client being impressed.
4. Believe in yourself – You got this! If you don’t believe in your work, why should the client?
5. Be prepared for feedback – both good and bad. Criticism can be tough, but it’s a part of the creative process.
6. Be Yourself. The more genuine you are, the more confidence you’ll have.
Once you’ve pitched your creative idea, it’s important to follow up with the client. Here are some tips for doing so:
- Thank them for their time.
- Let them know that you’re available to answer any questions they may have.
- Follow up with any additional ideas or suggestions you may have.
- Stay in touch. Keep the lines of communication open, and update them on your progress.
By following these tips, you’ll be more confident when it comes time to present your creative work to a client. Preparation is key, so make sure you’re well-prepared before that all-important pitch. ROCK IT!
