There was a wonderfull article in the Montreal Gazette today illustrating how to market oneself by not only selling your products or services but your philosophy as well.
I can't say that I agree more. That's how you stand out from the crowd and find your niche.
I have found that by giving more(like doing a little extra leg work, providing ideas before a quote etc.) you may run the risk of not getting paid however when it does pay off it's usualy 3 fold. It shows that you have creative passion,it says you can be counted on and you can deliver. This all ='s a good solid ground for building a business realtionship that may result in the communication mutual needed knowledge, or new contacts and or financial compensation. You'll never know unless you take that risk and get out there..what the worst? your out your time...the benefits far outweight that.
