What You Can Do To Help Your Ideal Clients Right Now

WITH Hamil Bros

Overview

If it hasn’t happened already, you’re going to deal with a difficult client. It’s that type of experience that will help you identify your ideal client.

About The Hamil Bros

I’d like to welcome Jacob and Ross Hamil back to the podcast. The Hamil Bros Studio has done incredible work for both small businesses and big brands. They get their creative juices flowing by making promotional video work, short films, and music videos.

Serving Your Ideal Clients

In this episode, we discuss what an ideal client looks like and how to best serve them. They may already know a thing or two about what they want. However, many clients do not. That’s why education is a large part of the job. It’s taking this extra step to communicate and inform that will set you apart as a business.

The Role of Creativity and Perseverance During Tough Times

When times seem tough, Ross and Jacob look for value in perseverance and adaptability. When the pandemic hit, they found that just having something to do, even small regular jobs for their church, gave them the purpose they needed to keep going. Staying creatively flexible is the key. As creatives, now can be the time to put those ideas you’ve been sitting on into action.
