    by Evaluating and Segmenting Your Clients

    REGISTER HERE

    Thursday, July 27, 2017

    12:30 - 1:30pm


    Presented by: 


    Cliff Quicksell, Jr., MAS+
    Cliff Quicksell & Associates


    TOPIC


    Businesses of all sizes regularly struggle with time management issues.

    • What do I do next?
    • What types of clients should I be targeting? 
    • How often?
    • What should I be doing?


    We become shackled to our email and stomping out fires and it definitely creates challenges. Sales suffer, clients suffer, profits suffer. How can you fix this?

    This webinar is designed to show one key aspect of how to effectively evaluate your current client base through a segmentation process. Knowing who your key clients are and the perfect types of clients to be marketing to will open huge time gaps to further grow your business.
