Location: Business Innovation Centre, Binley Business Park, Binley, Coventry, CV3 2TX
- Ruling your niche: A brave yet highly effective strategy is to narrow down and focus on a particular niche. The advantage is there will be fewer competitors who know, love and serve your target market as you do.
- Brand You – how to capitalize on the personal brands within your team to create a reputation at thought leaders and ensure this creates more revenue for you.
- Piggybacking – who with and how? Joining with another brand can attract more business for both parties. A good strategy for business-to-business brands, piggybacking works particularly well with associations that want to add value to their members, e.g., with a free limited-time trial of what you are offering. We will explore how to identify the right organisations in your market with whom you could form a win-win alliance. Considerations include assessing the potential organisation’s values and what benefit you could bring to your audience.
- The science of referrals: Receiving tailored and relevant referrals is a process. In this workshop, we look at how you can build referrals in a way that opens a dialogue with your customers, rather than treating them as a sales force. If you are continually delighting your customers, building relevant referrals will not be too hard.
