When Did You Last Meet A Client Face To Face?

Since starting my on-line business 3 years ago I have provided business website and blogging solutions for 92 personal clients.

And guess how many I have met, face-to-face?


That’s right…just 2.

You see the vast majority of my clients live in USA, Canada or Australia.

And I live in the UK.

Which means seeing them face-to-face is pretty hard!

But in 2012 my dream is for that to change. For 2 reasons really.

One: I’m 50 next year and it would be a way to celebrate.

Two: Some of my clients are now personal friends and it would be great to meet them.

But I need to get my act together. It will be a holiday as well…not all work. So I need to ensure my business continues to grow and be even more successful. That’s going to take hard work.

So my dream is to…pack a suitcase, take my laptop, travel the USA and drop-by to see some of my clients.

Now…this is where I need some help!

I just found this great photo competition on Facebook and I need your votes/comments.

If you click on the link below and see my creative photo (oh…and my lovely smiling face!)…can you vote for me?

Add a comment as well…that would be great.

I truly would appreciate it.

Thank YOU!

    I guess it is important to meet clients face to face. But its becoming more and more difficult, not only for Internet businesses but also for offline businesses because of the variety of communication tools available. And also because of the shrinking time available with clients…

      I think you should spend as much time as needed with your clients. Without them…what would you do?

    I don’t think that meeting clients face to face is as important as it once was in this digital age.Yes it would be good to meet people in the flesh, but some clients may be half a world away and it may be prohibative cost wise to meet them

      …hence making it a holiday as well!

    I agree with David Cornick. Meeting is not that important, Important is how many deals you are making per month 🙂

    I work as a blogger for multiple law firms, and I have to say that meeting those clients face to face is completely necessary.

    However, a lot of our job as bloggers is to create, and syndicate. Skype really does work well enough for that.

    It depends on the profession, while some profession do not require us to meet them in person some professions demands that it is necessary to meet out clients in person. Interacting with them in person helps us to know them even more better.

    LOL…this is so true… these days I almost NEVER see clients face to face! It’s been only going more and more in that direction the last few years… actually I think it’s going to be even MORE impersonal in the future…
