In this episode, he talks about client visitations. When Richard entered the industry 25+ years ago, all we had was a phone, the yellow pages, a fax machine AND a handshake! There was no internet, CRM technology, texting, voicemail, tweeting, Facebook or LinkedIn. Yet, he billed as much as some of the big billers of today with all their new age technology. How was that possible? It was because he built stronger and more personal client relationships face-to-face! Richard discusses 2 methods of client meetings: CLIENT VISITATIONS and CLIENT EIOs or Employer in Office.
