AAM presents: Maximizing Client Referrals
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM (EST)
Join AAM Atlanta as we learn how to maximize client referrals and discuss together where we've seen success and faced challenges in this area.
Part 1 – Presentation
Client referrals are the largest, most reliable and most cost-effective source of new clients for professional service firms, yet most firms do not have a defined process in place to maximize this opportunity for business growth.
The presentation will provide a framework and tips on how to include this important aspect into the strategic marketing and business development plan. In addition, members will gain knowledge of how to move forward with the plan, including different levels of coaching required to make the referral process an income-generating business strategy.
Part 2 – Group Discussion
Tom will lead a group discussion on the topic of referrals so come armed with your questions and ideas to share with the group.
