In the aerospace industry, the names of companies like Boeing and Airbus are always mentioned as if they are the only players in the aerospace game. However, there are thousands of smaller companies, ranging from media sales firms to municipal law enforcement agencies, which require services from aerospace firms. These clients are looking to invest in airplanes, helicopters, and other aerospace technologies in order to take their organization to the next level and provide a higher echelon of service to their customers. However, they often get overlooked by industry observers because of their lack of major firepower. Aerospace professionals, however, have to show the same level of commitment to smaller clients as they do for their larger clients.
While clients like Airbus provide massive funding to aerospace firms for a large number of services, the needs of smaller companies can be taken care of relatively quickly. As well, with hundreds of clients purchasing their services, aerospace firms and professionals can improve their standing within the industry. Finally, the need for repeat business in the aerospace industry is crucial for engineering firms and small clients can aid in these efforts. Designers, engineers, and others with aerospace firms should look at projects with smaller clients as an opportunity to think outside of the box. Companies that sell charter jets or personal aircraft can help customize their products for a specific client's needs.
Municipal governments often look for the best value for tax revenues, which means that aerospace professionals often have the challenge of finding the right balance between price and quality. The feedback from small clients upon receiving and using their new product can be invaluable to improving a firm's creative process. Clients who are looking to make smaller deals with aerospace firms often are more hands on with aerospace professionals than workers who work with large clients. Buying managers with a telecommunications company looking to acquire a corporate airplane often visit directly with aerospace designers, unlike the impersonal communications that are typical with larger clients. This personal contact eliminates missed communications, ensures that the needs of the client are met, and that the parameters of the firm's services are outlined sufficiently.
Aerospace professionals benefit from this personal contact because they learn to deal with diverse clients and become more adept at explaining the services that their employer provides. In the end, aerospace professionals need to build trust with smaller clients in order to ensure their success in the industry and the success of their employers.
