You only have one chance to make a first impression, as the old saying goes. If you happen to be a solicitor and you’re trying to impress a prospective client, it’s not a well-cut suit or a posh lunch that’s going to get the job done. The best way to impress a potential client – or an existing client, for that matter – is to display an understanding of their business. By showing some knowledge of the nuances of the client’s industry, their competition, the regulatory (and other) challenges they’re facing, you illustrate that you care enough about their business to deserve their business.
Aaron & Partners has long acknowledged the importance of understanding their prospects and current client’s business. But acquiring this information in a timely manner had been at best a tiresome task, at worst something that simply didn’t happen as a matter of course like it should. “We have long placed a strong emphasis on business intelligence gathering and are unusual in having a dedicated resource for it for a firm our size,” said Scott Hadden, a marketing manager at Aaron & Partners.
“However at times efforts can be sporadic and risk falling behind the curve. We would conduct individual searches on client websites, regional publications and the trade press. Often, we’d only find the information once it had appeared in the mainstream press when there is a risk of it being ‘old hat.’ The worse case is on occasions you didn’t find it at all.”
