1. Prospect Your Animation Clients

Before going about the sales call, it is important that you narrow down the list of animation clients that you will be calling. Separate those who are able and willing to avail of your product from those who may not be interested at all.

2. Research On Your Animation Client

Researching about your animation client will allow you to personalize and tailor the sales call specifically to that client. It is also a good idea to have some level of knowledge of what your client does to build trust and a relationship with them.
