Do you want the real thing? Or a free "executive briefing" delivered by a guy sponsored by Microsoft, giving tips like "how to leverage Microsoft CRM to build new business" ? Both Web seminars are scheduled for next Wednesday afternoon March 16.
I recommend you attend the Webinar that Mike Cummings and I are presenting on March 16 at Noon Eastern time: Composing Your Personal Marketing Plan for 2005. We're sponsored by the PM Forum, an association of marketers, not a predatory global software company that wants to sell you product.
Mike and I believe that your individual marketing plan will determine how you do financially in 2005, whether you have more and better clients, whether you can charge higher rates and whether you find more work you enjoy. But without a plan, it won't happen. We'll show you how to become a rainmaker and enjoy the benefits that of being one. Click here to sign up for the real program.
Mike and I will send you 84 pages of handout materials, including:
- All the slides from the Webinar
- 8 articles on professional marketing
- Year End Business Development Performance Review For Attorneys
- Personal Marketing Plan Templates and Forms
(The Microsoft decoy is giving you a chance to win one copy of his book.)
Our Participants will learn the 12 Simples Rules of Rainmaking:
Rule 1: How to See The World Through The Eyes Of Your Client
Rule 2: You Are In The Relationship Business
Rule 3: How to Market & Sell As If You Are A Business Doctor
