Background Information:

Every independent professional needs a marketing and sales plan in 2018 that constantly generates new clients and prospects. This one day workshop will provide valuable insight into building and implementing a winning program to build a client base that will exceed a delegate’s expectations.

Delegates will receive tools, tips and hacks that will provide them with a menu of options to identify what is missing from their current marketing activities, and it will enable them to create their own personalized marketing plan for success.

Using detailed worksheets and exercises, delegates will be able to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of their current efforts. This powerful workshop will provide delegates with a set of options and simple, elegant and effective tactics that they can incorporate into their marketing plans.

This constantly updated and revised workshop is based on more than 25 years of international and local research amongst consultants, professional service providers, rainmakers and business development managers, and takes an in-depth look at what works and doesn’t work in professional services and consulting marketing. It includes not only a wealth of tips and hacks, but also information on how to take advantage of new developments in the online world.

Delegates will learn how to integrate online and offline marketing approaches, and will also learn how to:

  • Become Rainmakers*
  • Use social media to their advantage
  • Use Internet marketing techniques such as blogging, email campaigns, design, search engine optimization and online networking techniques
  • Become known as thought leaders and extend their influence and reputation

* The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word “Rainmaker” as a person (as a partner in a law firm for example) who brings in new business; also: a person whose influence can initiate progress or ensure success. Specialists often find in their careers that as they become associates or partners that they now also have to bring in new business. Often this transition from being a producer and a specialist to becoming a marketer and responsible for new business, influence and sales can be difficult for individuals used to traditional ways of doing things. This workshop will help a delegate to become a rainmaker, influencer and a thought leader.
