Growing your customer base and engaging with the right customers, the right way. Targeting is an effective method for developing new business and engaging with the right customers. Yet, many companies fall short of their objectives due to inadequate preparation. This workshop will focus on how to successfully prioritize and engage with prospects – with the end goal of converting them to customers. During this session, participants will learn a simplified approach to targeting, including how to:
