Message from BALIF Board (April 8, 2014)

08 Apr 2014 9:51 PM | BALIF Administrator (Administrator)

Today, we discussed, "What business development technique(s) have you tried in the last 30 days?  What worked?  What didn't?" 


It was a fabulous buffet feast at The SF City Club.  I had the opportunity to lunch with nine other BALIF partners and firm owners to learn from their experience and insight with regards to business development.


What a dynamic exchange of ideas to stimulate my own thinking about how to attract more, and better, clients.  Here's a sampling...

  • Utilizing online key-word searches through professional marketing companies to attract more leads;
  • Joining BNI and other networking and business referral group;
  • Hiring a life coach to identify core values of my practice;
  • Leveraging creativity to pinpoint and then expand a client's business needs;
  • Selling the "person", as opposed to the firm;
  • Identifying the business development medium that you're best suited for, and using it.

I also loved meeting new colleagues and catching-up with old friends - both of which are invaluable resources to refer/receive business leads.


This is part of BALIF's PARTNERS EXCHANGE - an ongoing effort to create a vibrant and thriving LGBT environment that invites networking and an exchange of business.  Here's a peek at the incredible ladies and gentlemen that make up the Exchange and the specialties they bring to our community:
