Selling Professional Services in a Challenging Economy

In today's challenging economic environment, there are simply fewer opportunities than before. As a result, every successful business must do all they can to maximize their sales, marketing and business development efforts. During this round table discussion we will be addressing the following topics as well as other issues that you bring to the meeting:

  • How to get in front of more new prospects on a regular basis
  • How to avoid washing time chasing unqualified projects
  • Why we frequently hear "I want to think it over" or some form of "maybe"
  • How to shorten the time to close a sale (or get a decision)
  • How to avoid cutting fees to get or keep the business
  • How to differentiate our services more effectively
  • How our attitudes and beliefs can impact our success
