Extending or Renewing a Contract

Extend, renew, or negotiate a contract when the other party is the happiest, not when the contract is about to expire. Whenever we’ve done an exceptional deal for a client, I encourage the executive in charge to discuss extending the client’s representation agreement then, even ifit still has a year or so to run.

If a customer of yours has received terrific news, even if it has nothing to do with your product—a raise or a bonus, for instance—there’s probably a good timing opportunity there.

Take automatic mood checks. Mood alone can turn a “yes” into a “no” and vice versa.
