Marketing for Consultants - What Works and What Doesn't
by Gene Siciliano - CFO For Rent
and President of Western Management Associates
In today's business environment, there is a greater than ever need to promote yourself actively. There is less consulting business to be shared, and hungrier competition is willing to fight for it. More than ever, there is a need to get follow-on business from your existing clients and to open the door to new clients. Regrettably, few consultants market their services effectively or are willing to engage in active selling. Many feel that marketing their practice somehow compromises their professionalism and integrity.
So how can we consultants market more effectively? For the answer, join us at our IMC SFV meeting on October 15 as Gene Siciliano, a 24-year financial management consultant, shares what has and had not worked for him. This will also a participatory meeting, as participants will be encouraged to share their experiences.
What you will learn from this program:
The 8 most powerful marketing tools for business professionals
What works and what doesn't
