What do you when the work is done and you have the end of project high? In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I talk about the practical things you can do: backing up and archiving the work, delivering final files, and having a hand-off checklist. I also share ways to keep in touch with your client as well as what to get from them in terms of testimonials and referrals.

- Ask to add your client to your email newsletter
