 Session Description

Those of us who take a disciplined, structured approach to proposal development know what it takes to prepare a coherent submittal to the client. What if we took a similarly strategic approach to our marketing efforts as a whole? If your marketing team’s only responsibility is proposals, you’re missing out on everything else that goes into winning profitable, interesting, important projects for clients you can’t wait to work with. Here you’ll learn what your marketing-savvy competitors are doing to know what opportunities are coming up, get in front of key clients before the procurement process begins, and spread the word about their capabilities to an audience that matters (not just anyone who’ll listen).

 If you’re ready to feel more in control of your marketing efforts, more intentional with your decision making, and less reactive to market changes, this program is for you. Our speakers will share industry best practices based on the SMPS Domains of Practice, as well as examples from their careers in the AEC industry.

 This event is being offered jointly with the Society of Marketing Professional Services New York Chapter.

 After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

1. Identify the critical elements of and steps for preparing an implementable marketing plan

2. Understand how their firm can promote and position itself in today’s ultra-competitive business environment

3. Implement cost-effective promotional strategies and tactics, even with limited staff and financial resources

4. Explore basic internal systems, processes, and data management tools to keep marketing efforts organized and well-informed.
