When it comes to helping clients, it can be tempting to want to create your own materials. After all, it seems like a good way to tailor your approach and provide something unique to your clients. However, there are many benefits to using done-for-you, proven client materials instead.
First and foremost, proven client materials have already undergone extensive testing and refinement. They have been designed and tested by experienced professionals, which means that they have been shown to be effective for a wide range of clients. By using proven materials, you can be confident that you are providing your clients with the highest quality support possible.
Another benefit of using done-for-you client materials is that they can save you time and effort. Developing your own materials can be time-consuming and may require a lot of trial and error. By using established materials, you can focus your energy on supporting your clients rather than on developing new resources. Trusted Advisors believe that our consultants’ time is best used in helping the clients to get results, not creating the tools to get them there.
Using proven materials can also help you to remain current with the latest research and techniques in your field. Many established materials, like Trusted Advisors’ client tools, are updated regularly to reflect new research or changes in best practices. By using these materials, you can be sure that you are providing your clients with the most up-to-date information possible.
Finally, using established materials can help you to build trust and credibility with your clients. When you use materials that have been developed and tested by professionals in your field, you show your clients that you are dedicated to providing them with the best possible support. This can help to build rapport and trust, which can in turn enhance your relationship with your clients.
Overall, there are many good reasons to use proven client materials rather than trying to create your own. By doing so, you can provide the best possible support for your clients while also saving time, staying current with new research and techniques, and building trust and credibility.
