Be the Professional Services Firm your clients call First

Would you like to attract more clients for your firm? How can you ensure your target audience can find you? Consulting firms come in many types, from architects, engineers, IT consulting to HR and payroll experts so it's important to tailor your approach; after all, one size does not fit all in professional services firms.

A need to win the right new clients, competition, regulation, technological change — when the list of issues you have to cope with day-to-day pushes market development down the agenda, it is time to seek expert help.

There is a move in the profession towards the visible sector or service specialists. Are you wondering where to start? Marketing for professional services is nuanced and specialised. What do the high performers in your industry focus on? How do you position yourself against competitors with similar services and differentiate your firm? How can you make your marketing more focused, impactful and engaging?

Marketing Clever provides strategic and practical guidance for Professional Services firms who:

  • Need to improve their branding, website or social media.

  • Wish to build sector or service expertise and profile.

  • Are losing clients to competitors.

  • Have difficulty articulating their expertise.

  • Need expert coaching, mentoring or training for their leader/leadership team.

  • Carefully maximise communication strategy during a merger/acquisition with another firm.

  • Need ambitious professionals to develop into directors or partners.

Her ability to influence at all levels is very obvious when you work with her and she has an uncommon ability to keep people focused on the important issues. Her deep expertise and pragmatic approach to business strategy is refreshing and she is unfailingly generous with advice and her network of world-class contacts across multiple industries.
