Breaking Into New Categories: Diversifying & Growing Your Pipeline

Overview

Oct 31
1:00 - 2:30PM ET

In general, proactively prospecting for new clients is one of the most important new business activities for an agency. It allows you to avoid expensive competitive reviews and RFPs, consume fewer resources and connect with a greater number of prospects. And expanding into new categories can provide an even more lucrative source of new revenue.

The challenge is that most agencies don’t approach proactive prospecting – and certainly not prospecting into new categories – with any sense of strategic rigor. Instead, most agencies target prospects and categories based on emotions –– where the agency team feels they most want to do work. This ultimately ends up with little success.

This session will walk you step-by-step through the process of how agencies with the highest growth rates systematically attack and convert one quality prospect after another. They are machines. And they do it using existing resources. These agencies are stealing business with small teams (think SWAT teams) that focus and attack aggressively.

You will leave this session with a systematic approach to increasing your prospecting pipeline by expanding into new categories. From targeting and qualifying to attacking and closing, learn the most effective approach to bringing new prospects in the door.
