13 | How To Feel More Confident With Clients (Even When You're Not)

The ability to exude self-confidence as an entrepreneur is absolutely imperative if you wish to gain and retain clients.

Customers only buy from businesses they trust and who truly believe in the quality of their products and services.

If you don’t seem confident, you will never earn the trust of our clients.

Here are 11 ways to display confidence with you clients even when you feel a bit unsure of yourself…

Groom well and dress the part. No one will ever take you seriously if you don’t dress and groom appropriately. It’s better to dress formally than to dress casually. When you dress up, you tend to feel more confident and it will show. It’s important to make a wonderful first impression and it starts with your appearance.

Maintain a mighty posture. Stand straight up with your shoulders back. A great stance gives off a sense of confidence. Make sure your feet are aligned with your shoulders as you stand.

Chin up!

You should always keep your head and stare straight. Hold your head high, always.

When you keep your chin up and your posture straight, you are actually reducing stress hormones while stimulating hormones that build confidence.

Make and keep eye contact. When you don’t make eye contact with a client, it can be perceived as though you are unsure, frightened and even unfriendly. Not making eye contact can seriously detriment your ability to make a sale.

Never fidget around.
