As a growth marketing agency, we help professional services firms to build Trust & Credibility with your clients, create business value and win more business.

When buying intangible services, the number one factor that influences your clients’ buying decision is trust; that is why we say “Trust is the currency of Professional Services”.

People will buy your services when they feel you can be trusted in your capabilities to address their challenges and add value. That is why referrals, word of mouth and networking events have previously been (and still are) great channels for professional services marketing.

However, professional services need to adapt to the changing buying behaviour as people look for tangible sources of evidence to build trust and credibility in your services. This comes from building a strong digital presence, demonstrating thought leadership and being more proactive with your marketing. This remains one of the main challenges in professional services marketing for many firms.

Common Marketing Challenges for Professional Service Firms

In our experience of working with professional services firms, from a sales and marketing point of view, some of the major challenges these firms typically face are:

Building trust & credibility for an intangible offer

ensuring that your buyers feel that you are good at what you do and can help them overcome their challenges

Effectively communicating the value you offer

being able to communicate the true value of what you offer and how that can transform your client’s business

Generating predictable revenue year on year

having a consistent flow of leads and a healthy sales pipeline that can minimise the risk of peaks and troughs professional services firms typically go through

Differentiating in a competitive market

being able to differentiate in a competitive market, based on elements that matter to your clients – remember, price is not a sustainable competitive advantage, good value for money is

Engaging buyers to have a meaningful conversation

getting your target audience interested in the value you can bring to their business is a big challenge because typically they think they don’t have a need or that they have it covered.
