Could I talk to some of your clients as references?
Absolutely! We almost insist that you do. While it's true we are not likely to suggest someone who would speak negatively about us, there is a lot you can uncover by speaking to two or three long-term clients. You will find out what we do, and what we do not do. You can ask a client reference what they like best and least about our team. We ask clients to serve as references for us who have issues similar to yours, so you can confer on those matters and get an idea about assistance we deliver. We provide a list to our clients and to you on what those issues are, to help you format your discussion points.
