Marketing Your Consultancy - I

Even experienced consultants can get confused and diffused when marketing to potential clients, wasting valuable time and energy as a result. The power of your marketing only reaches its full potential if you have a clear understanding of your target market segment(s) and your client base.

This month's workshop lays the foundation for more effective marketing of your consultancy by focusing on the basics. Dick Morgan’s worksheets will help you focus and define your market(s), and determine how and where you best fit with prospects and existing clients:

  • Where should you focus?
  • Who and where are your current clients?
  • Advantages and disadvantages of target marketing
  • Assessing your personal priorities
  • Actual three-dimensional market definition
  • Identifying likely prospective clients
  • Building segment credibility
  • Primary and secondary resources
  • Questions to ask, and much more!
