Benefits of Networking

Networking broadens your prospect pool. In addition to raising your company's profile, it increases your credibility with educational consulting firms.

But more importantly, a strategy that emphasizes networking can be a lead generation machine. Sometimes the leads you generate through consistent and intentional networking will be leads that you had never considered before.

Strategies for Selling to Educational Consulting Firms

Generally speaking, educational consulting firms are always interested in products that help them provide a higher level of service for their clients and customers.

Cost is a constant concern, but if educational consulting firms believe a new product or line of products can substantially improve their customers' experience, price takes a backseat to quality.

Businesses that sell to educational consulting firms need to also recognize the fact that educational consulting firms aren't necessarily the end-users, so strategies that focus on enhancing customer experiences are frequently well-received by buyers.

Reaching Prospective Customers

Prospecting is the process of identifying potential customers and converting them to qualified leads.

Networking can fine tunes prospecting performance and conversion ratios. However, it's important to make sure your sales force isn't so focused on meeting new people that they miss the point of prospecting, i.e. the identification of likely buyers, key decision makers and high value industry contacts. In other words, the type of people you meet is just as important as the number of people you meet when prospecting for educational consulting firms.

Lead lists are useful because they narrow the field for your team. Third-party lists from reputable vendors (e.g. Experian Business Services) arm your sales force with good leads, making it easier for your company to balance the quantity and quality demands that are prerequisites for effective prospecting.
