How To Build Trust With Potential Clients

by Tom McMakin, author of “How Clients Buy: A Practical Guide to Business Development for Consulting and Professional Services“ The notion of trust in others is ancient. It allows one buddy to lean on another in war or commerce and combat, but, more importantly, it is sinew that binds communities together, enabling them to do together what they cannot do as individuals.  It is also a critical prerequisite to selling consulting and professional services successfully. There are two types of trust...

Facebook Pages Just Got a Lot More Customizable-Here’s What You Need to Know

Back in 2006, creating a Facebook Page was mind-numbingly simple. You picked your URL, uploaded a picture, filled out a few boxes, and that was it. Unlike its chief rival, MySpace, there was no mucking about with HTML, no picking the right animated backgrounds, no blinking green fonts to fine-tune. Of course, the flipside of that simplicity was a complete lack of control. Your page was indistinguishable from every other. White background, Helvetica, blue buttons, a simple newsfeed-type layout. ...

Some Trade Deals on Hold after Trump's Election, but Danger Lurks in the Lesser-Known Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA)

Fair Traders who are celebrating the defeat of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) may see their hard work undone if the talks towards the proposed Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) continue under a Trump administration. Many Democrats who minimized the importance of the negative impacts of corporate trade deals on working class Americans have now paid the price in the recent elections. As my colleagues at the Center for Economic and Policy Research have pointed out, racists and xenophobes wer...

The 18th round of negotiations on a secret deal to limit public oversight over the services economy starts today at the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva, and negotiators will have a new item on their agenda: how to deal with the onslaught of leaks of proposals that were supposed to remain locked away in secret until five years after the deal was concluded or abandoned.

How Best-in-Class Brands do B2B Social Media Strategy [Report]

Social media is a mainstay of B2C marketing, but it’s hard to imagine B2B brands rocking the most popular platforms today. How can you promote sophisticated financial instruments, cloud software, or heavy machinery on Instagram? It brings to mind an image of, say, a construction crane on the beach, with the caption “Sipping margaritas and loving life! #CraneLife #Blessed #WokeUpLikeThis #NoFilter.” That’s not the way to promote a no-nonsense, professional B2B brand, surely. Despite the cognitiv...

Something To Think About – Service – Is Sony The Best Choice? What About Other Brands?

I saw this interesting article on PetaPixel and I also just saw this story on canonrumors and it is all a great reminder that there’s more to owning a camera than the sensor or the body or even the lens. Support can be critical!  Matt Granger is a pro from Australia who’s put together a great video that reminds us about what great support is like. In his case, Sony’s support has been atrocious. And, for many of us, support is a good piece of the battle. If you are a very small shop (meaning mayb...

Marketing idea: What does your customer experience?

The concept of creating a memorable customer experience is nothing new. Companies like Disney, Zappos and Ritz Carlton have become famous for how their customers rave about doing business with them. Who doesn’t know the famous Ritz Carlton line “we are ladies and gentlemen, serving ladies and gentlemen?” So the concept has been around for a while, but I predict it will take on new importance in 2014 and beyond. The digital fishbowl that every business lives in today makes every nuance of every ...
