Biz-Dev, Lets Get Counterintuitive

Thanks to the team at Clio for this interesting article on business development. The article covers some of the basics like 'making it easy for clients to find you' and 'help potential clients connect with you through your website'. It also its the nail-on-the-head with the essential notion that showing potential clients the value of prevention can help protect their livelihoods - and can help your firm win more business in the long run.

Doesn't prevention mean less billable work? Perhaps - but it may well mean more clients (and very happy clients at that). This brings me to the notion of value and thinking in a counter-intuitive way.

In a noisy crowded marketplace, how do you get the attention of potential clients? Give something of value away for free. Its a great way to let people experience your expertise at no charge, and when delivered as part of a business development campaign, will lead to new clients. Example: imagine a local luncheon event to business owners at which you present the 'top-5 most common contracting mistakes' businesses make.. or some other need-to-know topic relevant to your prospects.

What's Wrong with this Picture

Thanks to Ron Friedman for this informative article which parses the recent Altman Weil Law Firms in Transition survey.

The key takeaway: Think outside: (that's clients, not profitability).
