Treat yourself to three tried-and-tested email scripts I use to keep my clients – and deadlines! – happy.
Script #1: The Feedback Fueller
When to use it: Have you ever had a client think that because you didn’t nail the design on the first proof that there is NO HOPE to rectify the situation? Set expectations from the outset with this ever-so-simple script.
I hope you are well?
Good news: We have been busy working on your logo concepts and are ready to present your proof! There are four concepts attached for you to choose from.
Now, there are two possible responses that you might have to these concepts:
1.You squeal and love it. Yay. We’re heading in the right direction. Just let me know if there are any tweaks you’d like to make and I’ll get to work on a revised proof for you.
2. It doesn’t feel quite right. In that case, don’t panic, it’s totally fine. It’s not the end of the world. From here, open and clear communication will help us correct the course! #neverfear Just send me back your thoughts and we will brainstorm next steps.
And remember: I’m open to all your feedback.
Thanks and chat soon. x
