Marketing Your Consultancy III
 

Workshop Focus
Learn from experts, stay current, exchange ideas, and share your expertise.

Even the most powerful value message will go unnoticed unless it is effectively communicated to current and prospective clients. Many individual practitioners and small consultancies struggle with finding and consistently executing the right approach to reach their audience.

This month’s workshop provides ideas and techniques for creating the marketing tools you need to communicate your consultancy’s message and brand promise to your clients and prospects. Learn how to effectively leverage current technologies that get your brand known and your value message understood:

  • Create brochures
  • Run e-mail campaigns and direct mailings
  • Send newsletters
  • Set up and maintain an attractive web site
