Effective Project Timeline Tip: Get Deliverables Quickly & Get Paid Sooner
K'ai Roberts Fu, Magnus Media Group
Do you ever struggle to get clients to take action so you can finish a project and receive your final payment?
Need help building an effective project timeline? Today, Nikki’s guest is K’ai Roberts Fu, a member of the Sales Maven Society and the owner of Magnus Media Group Video Production, a mobile video production company. K’ai is asking for Nikki’s help navigating content creation, marketing, and promotional offers in a constantly changing environment and what she can do to coach people into finishing a project, plus much more on this episode of the Sales Maven podcast.
Nikki starts by suggesting ways for K’ai to approach clients about ways she can of service to them. She believes that since K’ai is so shy, if she starts by asking questions, it might make it easier to get a conversation started to highlight how she can help them promote their business. Nikki wants K’ai to treat her business just like she would any other business in the community that she recommends, and it’s okay to be proud of what she does. It’s not bragging; it’s a statement of what is.
Nikki also gives K’ai some insights into getting projects completed by blocking time on the client’s calendar to get each stage of the project completed. When a client doesn’t finish their portion of the project on time, they usually don’t block time to complete the task. So if you handle their calendar, it should make getting the needed information easier.

K’ai shares that being a part of the group and getting feedback is one of the biggest benefits she receives from being a Sales Maven Society member. She says that when she saw the way Nikki offers suggestions for the member’s emails and gives feedback along with the other members, she realized how wonderful it is.
