E.g if they tell you about their next business ideas, you can make some research and give them good reasons they shouldn’t embark on that particular business. That’s just an example. Your advice can be from any angle.
Build Trust: apart from giving your clients advice to make them trust you, you can create a scene with some fake stories E.g how you helped someone and they trusted you so much even with their own bank accounts, company or resources for years and you never failed them.

- GiftCard billing format
When it comes to billing your clients for the first time,we always recommend using the birthday or giftcard billing format. Tell them your birthday is upcoming and you would be expecting something from them.
If they comply don’t worry about getting gift. The aim here is to get cash in return so you will have to ask them for something which you can get in your location.
When they ask what you would want for your birthday. The idea is for them to give you cash in expense of getting the gift yourself instead of them passing through the stress of getting the gift to your location.
If eventually your clients ask for the kind of gift you want, you can tell them you want to buy gadget like mobile phone or PC since the one you are using currently is bad.
