Profile Forms: How to sell your business in two pages or less
"Profile Forms" have been recognized as a "best practice" in marketplace collateral. They are the only handout allowed at many tour trade industry events (American Bus Association and the National Tour Association) but are also being used in many other ways and for other markets. Prospects and clients who receive the forms gain an insider's knowledge of your business and learn how to better utilize your product. The newest styles of profiles include segment specific information and are often adapted to highlight a special opportunity, include in a press promotion or support an e-communication. This lively seminar will explore how to develop a winning profile form, how to adapt your message for various markets and how to maximize your outreach using this simple form of communication.
