Trusted Advisor 101: How To Be There For Your Clients This Holiday Season

The holidays are quickly approaching. How will you stand out to your clients this holiday season? Become a valued trusted advisor by gaining your client’s trust and confidence. Follow these tips to nurture your professional relationships and be the trusted advisor your clients need:


Send a personalized holiday gift

Let your clients know you are thinking of them by sending a gift you know they will love. Some examples include pre-packaged sweets and snacks, or gift cards. Research to see what option would be best for your clients. Add a special touch by including a hand-written holiday card. A personal card can go a long way, especially if each client receives a customized one. Above all, make sure the gift is meaningful to your client.


Schedule a virtual meeting to prepare for tax season

Tax season is right around the corner! As your client’s trusted advisor, get ahead of the game by scheduling a time to discuss any year-end matters to prepare for next year. During this meeting, have an agenda ready with questions to ask your client, such as what goals they are looking to set for 2021. As a result, your clients will thank you for thinking one step ahead.


Look for Thought Leadership opportunities

Keep an eye out for articles related to your client’s industry that they might find interesting. Show your clients that you, as their trusted advisor, understand their business by being involved in their industry news and hot topics.
