Even though consulting to corporate clients is a resilient, profitable business, it’s also highly competitive. So, no matter what services you plan to offer, you need a well-conceived, cost-effective strategy for marketing your business, closing sales opportunities, and serving clients.

That’s why this program, Guerrilla Marketing for Consultants, is a must for anyone who wants to create a new marketing program, tune up an existing one, or learn more about how to succeed in the consulting business. 

Michael McLaughlin, the coauthor of Guerrilla Marketing for Consultants and author of Winning the Professional Services Sale, presents this session to help you build a thriving business.

Whether you are an established business owner trying to expand, a senior-level executive thinking about becoming a consultant, or an executive serving internal clients, you’ll profit from this session.

Specifically, the program will cover:
  • How to design consulting services that will sell in today’s market
  • Why your marketing plan is more important than a business plan, and how to create one that attracts profitable clients to your business
  • How to zero in on the specific marketing tools you should use to promote your business
  • How (and when) to take advantage of low-cost channels such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to market your business
  • A strategy to help you build your business while you are working with clients.
During the session, we'll also leave time to answer your specific questions about launching or growing a consulting practice.

Michael W. McLaughlin is a Principal with MindShare Consulting LLC, a firm which helps professional service firm leaders and practitioners grow profitable businesses.

His book, Guerrilla Marketing for Consultants, is the first application of Guerrilla Marketing principles to the business of consulting and professional services; it offers a fresh—and profitable—approach to marketing, selling, pricing, proposal writing, and client relationship management.

He is also the author of Winning the Professional Services Sale, which offers McLaughlin's ideas on how a professional can sell less, win more work, and stay sane.
McLaughlin is the publisher of two newsletters, The Guerrilla Consultant and Management Consulting News, which offer resources for professional service providers and firm owners. His blog, Beating Feast or Famine, provides readers with timely advice on building sustainable careers, while still having a life.

He was formerly a Principal with Deloitte Consulting, where he spent more than two decades managing consulting projects, developing long-term client relationships, and building profitable consulting practices.
