New Business audit

The first step is to get under the skin of your business, to understand who your existing clients are, what you do for them and why? Do we want more of the same or should we be aiming higher? Or both?

New Business development journey

Together we’ll set your goals, and map out your game plan. Key activity will be planned and scheduled, giving you a timing plan with realistic actions which can be implemented effectively.

A 12 month activity programme

This will be devised for you giving you action points each month that can be achieved in a sustainable manner. This will include developing your marketing tools to support NBD activity and manage or shape the perceptions of your prospects.

Keep in touch strategy

Finding opportunities in the market place, and knowing when and how is best to make contact is not always enough. Your keep in touch strategy will give you carefully crafted reasons to stay in touch with any new prospects, to build a successful and fruitful relationship.
