The recession has increased the time and effort needed to make sales, especially for businesses selling to other businesses. In some sectors it can take up to 33 communications with a potential customer to land a sale.
That’s why Penny Haywood Calder, MD, at PHPR Ltd is giving a talk to help Leith businesses speed up this process at 4Networking’s Leith group tomorrow morning. The talk is called 30 Low-Cost Publicity Tips, designed to encourage local businesses to add more online and regular PR, marketing and sales tactics into their marketing mix to boost sales success.
4Networking’s Leith group for business owners meets at the David Lloyd Centre, Newhaven Place, Edinburgh EH6 4LX at 8am on the 24th November. £10 for guests, including breakfast, but attendees must pre-book into the meeting. http://www.4networking.biz – events
