5 Essential Things You Should Already Be Sharing With Prospective Clients
(Before They Book A Reading or Healing)
Are you actively taking clients as an intuitive professional? Seeking new leads for your life coaching business?
Having trouble with the type of clients you are booking?
Just as there is the right teacher for every student, there is also such a thing as the right type of client for you.
Every intuitive practitioner has an ideal client base.
This suite of ideal clients consists of members of the true population of individuals on this earth, whom you came here to serve.
Your ideal client base consists of like-minded folks, who share your values, value your help, and will provide you with compensation for that help without question.
Below are a few things you can do to assure that the right type of clients, find and begin booking sessions with you, which helps you identify better clients, which are just more prepared clients.
5 Things To Tell Tell Prospective Clients Before They Book a Session With You
5. Anything they can do to prepare.
Your clients want to have a good experience, and since readings are a three-way flow between three different circuits, their good participation is beneficial to the outcome.
Good participation means prepared participation and the clearer and more receptive each circuit is, the better the flow, and the better the reading.
Help your client have the best session possible, by giving them a just a few pointers on what they can to do better participate in the session, which could open up their capacity to be more receptive.
Have a notepad ready
Come in comfortable clothes
Be located in a stationary spot
Be somewhere with headphones
Turn off their cellphone
Share with your client anything that can help them have a better experience, anything from parking directions to mindset to the environment they're in.
Having a handout helps, but you can also write up a copy text and paste it in every email exchange or within your confirmation emails so it never gets lost.
4. The primary intuitive modality through which you receive information.
Not all mediums receive messages the same way, receive the same types of information, or deliver the information as other mediums do.
Some clients will see that someone is a healer and want a tarot reading, not realizing it's not all the same, much like the way financial advisors and accountants are often confused.
To reduce potential misunderstanding and to make sure your client knows what they are booking before they do, make sure that you make as clear as you can be with a description of your gifts and how they work, available for your clients. This could be on your website and again, in your booking exchange emails.
3. The spiritual source of your information.
How do you receive? What are the primary divination tools you use, if any?
If you are healer, where or with whom to do connect with to receive your energy? How long does it last?
If you are a medium, what types of spirits can generally be expected to be present at your sessions? If you have a specific religious faith, what is it?
While all of us, at the end of the day, connect to the same Source for healing, spiritual information, this information is routed through many forms.
But to eliminate bias, misunderstanding or even potential bigotry from entering your sacred space, it’s essential for your clients to know which form energy comes through you.
Make sure your clients have a general idea of which types of spirits, which dogma or practice, or which aspect of a particular belief system you follow and connect with when practicing your work.
That way, if you’re typically bringing through Angels, you’ll avoid the awkward scenario of a person booking a session with you, that would instead connect with a deceased, or do Reiki, and here that's no longer your specialty.
2. How a session with you generally works.
During the session itself, what happens? In my experience, no two readings have ever been the same, but by and large, there is a basic outline that I follow when offering certain services.
So what is the general time breakdown for the hour, two hours, or 90 minutes they have with you?
When you make it clear to your client how a session(s) with you is going to work, ahead of time, they’ll have a much better time being at ease for the session itself. This is because the client’s mind won’t be engaged continuously on what could happen next, and knowing what to expect, they’ll be less disappointed by what they do receive.
So consider providing a basic general outline of certain sessions for your clients to review on your website, in your booking emails, or simply, in the 5-10 minutes before delving into the session itself. This helps them know when they can ask questions, what happens in the last 10 minutes, etc., which can be especially helpful for those who’ve never had a your specific type of session before.
1. Technical details regarding scheduling, recording devices and payment.
Before a client emails or calls you to book a session, you may wish to make these things clear:
Your available hours
Whether or not you do sessions on weekends (people are bound to ask)
If you are available for distance work - such as readings via telephone or email
If you will record their session or if they are allowed to record (again, bound to ask)
How and when they will provide you with payment
If you are available for group sessions, events or classes
The answers to these questions are often determining factors that will help a client decide to book a session with you, so it’s worth having up on your site to avoid making unnecessary contact with clients who don’t like your criteria
Additionally, making this information readily available will save you countless hours of administration time, as these are the most common questions asked by a client who is interested in working with a psychic in their area.
Defining this information will also help you, too in organizing your life and deciding what to add or remove later on as your services naturally adjust as your life changes.
