The Problem:

Are your consultants getting a return on the time they invest in business development?

The Solution:

  • Use different types of business development activity to build strong client relationships.
  • Develop a personal strategy to improve how you source, qualify and nurture new clients.
  • Organise your target clients and make the CRM work for you.
  • Build detailed daily and weekly plans so you always know who to call next and why.

High-Value Business Development Activity

The Problem:

How often do clients take your calls or respond to your emails?

If all you do is ask them for vacancies you’re going to make yourself unpopular fast. It’s what most consultants do. If you want to elevate yourself above the competition, you need to provide more value to the client.

The Solution:

  • Tailor your approaches for initial and follow-up phone calls.
  • Identify which skill-sets get your clients excited and use the right candidate profiles to start business conversations.
  • Use a multi-call process to chase leads and increase your close rate.
  • Use content marketing to build and maintain client relationships on social media and email

Advanced Business Questioning & Meetings

The Problem:

Most clients think of recruitment consultants as a necessary evil. How do we move past this? What would it take to re-brand ourselves as trusted advisors like accountants and lawyers?

The Solution:

  • Start using our four-step relationship building process to elevate your client relationships.
  • Research your clients so you can talk to them about their business, not just their recruitment needs.
  • How to build successful relationships with internal recruiting teams.
  • Book and carry out face to face meetings that position you as a consultant first, recruiter second.

Value Proposition and Negotiation

The Problem:

Do your consultants really believe the service they provide is better than the competition? Can they convince your clients?

Working hard for low fees is soul destroying. Consultants need to build their belief in the service they provide so they can charge more and defend their price.

The Solution:

  • Define how and explain why your service is better than the competition.
  • Question techniques that build the need for your services.
  • How to defend your initial price.
  • Win-Win Negotiation skills.
