    OK, I am meeting a prospective client for web design on Thursday.

    I know a lot of you have experience with this sort of thing, I am looking for advice, since this will be my first meeting with a client. Techniques for persuasion, general advice.

    It is for a hip-hop labels website. I have 2 advantages at the moment :

    I run a UK hip-hop website (so I know what I'm talking about and the type of style when it comes to the record labels website)

    I don't think I have any viable competition.

    So, please advise...

    Cheers
    -James

    Here's a list:
    <LI>Be kind and friendly
    <LI>Don't be nervous
    <LI>Make them feel like they are getting a good deal
    <LI>Let them know that you have the advantage over others
    <LI>Be professional
    <LI>Watch your language. Don't use words like "yeah" "like" "basically" etc
    <LI>Don't leave them in the dust.

    Thats all I can think off the top of my head. Good luck!

    Stress your lower fee advantage over the competition, dress semi-nice/casually...and I'd go with Aidan with the slang...use common, correct words, don't try to sound like a techno-expert, and speak with clarity...
