4. Establish a Connection With Your Animation Client
Having a conversation with your clients about their business creates an immediate sense of rapport between you and your client.

7. Close the Deal with Your Animation Client
One way to increases the chances of you landing the project is to have a clear call to action. These can be in the form of scheduling a follow-up call or a simple email to remind the client about the project.
