Folks, I just got promoted and joined this group. How should I approach selling consulting services? I am delivering services and not had much success farming given the client environment. How can I start hunting? Any steps or tried-out resources I can leverage? Help out a fella trying to do his job better 🙏

Ask well thought out questions that build curiosity and then interest. Use that motivation to develop urgency.

These questions are centered around your solution and will highlight the features and benefits that should treat the symptoms of your prospect's problem.

That is how I develop a pursuit.

With services - it is vital that you sell the value. You must demonstrate how the prospect’s life is made so much easier - they should feel like they can’t live without your services.

As far as “hunting” - start with the basics... research your prospects, qualify and prioritize, then it’s all about the grind... put in the work that got you the promotion in the first place.

Good luck.

Waking up long before I should (like 4 or 5am) and cannot fall back to sleep. Pretty sure it is caused by work stress - happens only when I am on a stressful project. Has anyone had similar problem and how did you deal with it? Thanks!

I just need to vent a little. I’m realizing that our profession is just a way for the client to take out their frustration. Their perception that everything should be smooth and perfect because they’re paying us is unrealistic and abusive. Trying to figure out why I allow this to go on without the perks of travel and expenses.

I work at an agency that prides itself on doing the right thing and partnering with clients to figure out a problem.

We have a client that is typically less-than-engaged but on a retainer. When she's eager and engaged, she takes up a lot of time... a lot of time that takes away from others in her org.

Is it typical to credit a client on retainer for unused hours i.e. work more because they were unresponsive.

I understand the principle, but it makes it hard to service other clients.
