I should be annoyed really, giving away marketing secrets of switched on professionals. Seriously though, heard Jon Baker speak publicly and really enjoyed what I heard. Read the book cover to cover and was gob-smacked. Jon and Heather really know their stuff, this is a practical guide of how to market yourself and/ or your professional practice in the 21st century. Felt justified about the stuff I was doing and got a short sharp shock on what I wasn’t.

YOUR THREE-PART GROWING YOUR FIRM PROGRAM

How does it work?

In part 1, over a two month period, we meet online for three 60-90 min masterclasses. In each masterclass you will learn the exact same system which has helped our clients double and sometimes triple the size of their client portfolio in less than two years.

You will get everything you need to learn how to attract bigger and better clients, differentiate yourself, increase your client conversion rate and grow a profitable client portfolio.

Part 2 is about enabling your firm to cope with the extra business and increase net profit. We will meet online for two 60-90 min masterclasses. You will learn how to transform the ‘back end’ of your firm, so your client growth is sustainable.

You will get everything you need to learn how to get more from your staff, attract and retain better staff and to adjust your firm so that you can start charging higher average fee by improving the value you deliver to your clients.

In part 3, we will work with you in the private Facebook group to complete the Touchpoints Challenge. In the challenge you will integrate business development into your daily routine, implement your marketing plans and turn your intentions into the sustainable world class results you deserve and need.

I’m really enjoying the programme, it’s helping me restructure my thoughts and work. The best part for me is the live masterclasses. I like how Heather and Jon get feedback during the webinars and actually comment on people’s individual problems/circumstances.
The main things I am getting is help in defining my offering and in particular being able to communicate this to prospects. This and the accountability to actually make progress when my day job can too easily take over.

I’ve been promoting myself in my niche for about 6 months now and I’m already becoming known in the right circles and getting referrals, so I’m happy with progress so far without a great deal of effort.

I’d certainly recommend the programme to a friend

Heather has helped me establish myself as the firm’s expert on independent retailers and FMCG. As a result of working with Heather I now have the luxury of picking the clients I want. No more relying on following up leads from the telemarketer for me. So many positive things have come out of our relationship, not least a 5x return on my investment, targeted introductions from her black book and 6 pieces of PR in the right trade press.

If I attend the programme will you guarantee that I will rapidly grow my client portfolio?

What we guarantee is that if you attend all the masterclasses, implement a focused marketing plan, and do at least 5 touchpoints a day, whilst on the The Touchpoints Challenge, you will win business worth significantly more than your investment in the programme.
