I don’t ever recommend this approach. It is soo…. YOU focused. It makes you look like you’re asking them for a favor. It’s sad to say, but no one really cares about you. They care about themselves. Don’t go into things asking to get something, go in there confident that you can give something… give more profits, less stress, more time, more customer engagement, more of the stuff the client needs to reach their goals.I recommend that you take the time to present yourself as a professional and work for hire right off the bat. No reason, ever to work for free. No reason to ever beg for projects. Focus on them and help them hit their goals. They’ll gladly give you money and testimonials.
