It sounds like hyperbole, right? How could I possibly have a near 100% success rate as a personal matchmaker?
Depending on how you came across my website, you could be reading this figure with a dose of healthy skepticism, especially if you are personally in the market for a high-end matchmaker. If you’ve come across my site via social media or a link from elsewhere, you might conceivably chuckle or roll your eyes at this figure. And to be honest, I understand that.
Even my friends and family — my mother included — raised their eyebrows initially at that one. Until I reminded them of the truth: I actually do have a near 100% success rate. And it’s not in my nature to pretend otherwise. I work hard on behalf of my clients, and not only am I proud of the results, I’m confident I can continue to get the same results over and over for my new clients. That is, after all, the entire reason I started Francois-Bodine Consulting. To offer elite matchmaking services, having perfected my approach with success after success within my extensive private network.
So let’s break it down, shall we? How can this be true?
When I start working with a client, I do a lot of work in advance of making even that first connection. I align myself with my client, bond with him, get to know him, help him feel comfortable, and set him up for success in multiple ways. It’s not a simple process (you can read more about my process here) and requires warmth, intelligence, and a deep understanding of social behavior and dating dynamics.
As a result, most of my clients find themselves in a committed relationship within the first few dates.
I therefore define success as a client meeting and falling for a wonderful woman, and entering into a long-term relationship with her. It’s as simple as that.
Stacking the Deck
One way I’m able to maintain my success rate by being deliberate and purposeful about whom I choose to work with. I’m only going to accept you as a client if I know I can match you. There would be no reason to do otherwise. I’m not here to work on lost causes. I’m here to connect amazing individuals with the love of their life.
I can count on two fingers the number of clients I did not match, and if I’m being honest, I can say that I actually had my doubts from the outset with each of them, and not for the reasons you’re probably thinking. To be clear, both men were (and are) great catches. They are each personable, attractive and highly successful.
While they have a lot to offer, they are not experts in the matchmaking process. I’m the expert in this arena. And let’s face it, it can be a challenge for a person who is used to being a brilliant leader, listened to by every one around them, to take direction from someone else!
When a gentleman elects to work with me, we enter into an agreement, one that has requirements on both sides. The requirements on his side go beyond the merely financial. They include being an active participant in the matchmaking process. There’s a reason for this. It’s because the women I will introduce to him are intelligent, beautiful, accomplished and well-connected. They expect to be met with a certain level of honesty, respect, attention and sophistication. As part of positioning my client for success, a few modest and very reasonable expectations are outlined in the agreement. If the gentleman is too busy or disinterested to do his part, my hands are tied.
Suffice it to say that I’ve learned to listen to my instincts, and no longer work with gentlemen who aren’t ready to commit to their side of the equation.
My Guarantee to My Clients
My luxury matchmaking services are an investment. I’m certainly not the cheapest matchmaker around. But the integrity, quality and effectiveness I offer are unique. On the extremely rare occasion that a client I’m working with arrives at the end of his year-long contract without entering into a relationship, I am so confident in my approach and my ability to find the right woman for him that I offer a second year of my services free of charge.
This offer is extended to every client, unless we have an agreement between the two of us that has called for unique additional services. For instance someone may have a specified geographic search or a very narrow demographic request. In those special circumstances, rather than extend the existing contract, I may have the client sign another contract for additional services or time.
My goal is to find each client the one, and as anyone who knows me can tell you, when I have a goal I don’t give up. Not until that goal is fully accomplished.
High Quality Results
I love being a Matchmaker, and I love connecting my clients with the love of their life.
The trifecta of my luxury support process, personal integrity and commitment to my clients’ happiness add up to a wonderful, life-changing experience for the individuals I work with. That’s why I’ve been so successful. It’s why I’m being honest when I say I have a near 100% success rate.
