What mistakes do architects usually make when courting public sector clients (or any clients for that matter)? This is another episode by Business of Architecture where we focus on helping you as an architect run a more profitable business so you can focus on doing what you do best: create great architecture. Today we sit down with A/E/C marketing expert Bernie Siben to talk about how to get public sector clients as an architect. We discuss how to get past the gatekeepers, how to meet with the decision makers, and once you meet the decision makers, how to turn that into a relationship, and eventually, a project. So if you work with public sector or institutional clients as an architect, take out your pen and paper because you'll want to take notes.
Here are a few tips we cover about working with public sector and institutional clients:
- How to get your RFP to stand out from the crowd
- The one thing you need to do to pass the first round of RFP review
- How to get that first meeting with a decision maker
