Networking and word of mouth marketing

Powerful techniques to develop business for B2B and professional service firms

Networking and word of mouth referrals should be part of a structured marketing strategy and plan, rather than an ad hoc activity undertaken in a rare free moment.

Keeping track of new contacts and then keeping them up to date with your business, the range of services you offer and any events that you might run can be extremely time-consuming.
