Take charge of your marketing!  Go beyond reactively answering requests for proposals; instead, position your firm to become a sought-after provider of professional services. You'll find not only new ways of thinking about marketing, but you'll also get the strategies and tools you need to put these concepts into practice.

Business Comes to the Expert helps you create a marketing plan, manage it on a daily basis, and drive business to your firm. You'll get results from the process outlined in Business Comes to the Expert by using a simple management tool -- the to-do list -- to develop tasks, identify responsible parties, set deadlines, and create agendas and milestones.

Coverage includes:

  • Product or service: What are you selling?
  • Market research: Marketing to whom?
