One way to grow your practice is by treating your clients as guests, not customers.
That includes calling them by name – at least three times during every encounter, experts suggest – and learning details about their family, job and expectations.
Another tip: strive to create a positive experience for your clients at every step in the process – from initial interview to case closing.
Those are some of the pointers from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce article, “Secrets for Bringing Customers In.” See below for more tips.
