Top 10 Consulting Client Acquisition Strategies
without the Phone

Patrick McClure , Author and Founder of the Connexia Group

Every year, more and more consultants find themselves chasing after fewer clients. What used to work in the past doesn't seem to work any longer. Using the phone terrifies most of us. What's an enterprising consultant supposed to do? What are the strategies that top sales professionals are using to meet and win new clients?

Join us on Thursday, January 10, as Patrick McClure will clue you in on what you need to change in your business development efforts to become successful in today's instant-messaging generation. It's no longer "just a numbers game.” Dialing for dollars has gone the way of the dinosaurs, and client acquisition has now morphed into an entirely different and exciting game. There are new rules, new techniques, and new approaches to take. Find out:

  • How to get more referrals
  • How to convert referrals into new clients
  • Cold vs. warm introductions
  • Managing your business network
  • Groups and associations to join
  • Your personal UVP
  • Social Networking
  • Getting branded and published
  • Speaking for Dollars

All are welcome, not just IMC members. This will not only be a great learning experience about client acquisition, but also an opportunity for you to network with consultants and other self-employed professionals in the Greater Orange County area. Bring your questions on how to market your consulting services.
