What am I talking about?
Ok, so we’re on LinkedIn (and social media in general )for a specific purpose, right? To see how we can help others given our talents we use in our careers. We’re here to connect, get to know each other to build a relationship, and hopefully, be of assistance to one another.
I connected with someone on LinkedIn, who contacted me to do some voiceover work for them last week. Such a pleasant surprise! Did the job, everyone’s happy!
One morning a couple of weeks ago, I received an email from another person, who said the new client told him about me, and now, this other person has a job for me! A referral!!
Gaining work by connecting on LinkedIn AND a referral? I feel like I hit the jackpot, all in the span of a couple of days!! I am so grateful for this new client’s trust in me.
– do a good job for your clients – listen to their direction, understand their needs
– have a quality recording studio
– be quick to respond to emails and requests
The next day, I received this email from the referral:
Thank you for the excellent reading of the <XYZ project>. I’m sure we’ll be working together again for future projects.
Making my clients’ jobs easier makes me happy.
Surround yourself with people who support you and help you develop your best self.
