There are many many things that can be done to build a better business, but Tony has a simple beginning point:

Do you have as many customers as you need?

A simple question…but a complex problem for many. This is key issue that Tony resolves:

“I get more customers
for my customers”

Tony Vidler is a Conference speaker, personal business mentor & sales coach, business adviser & generator of ideas for helping professionals build their advice businesses.

There are simple, effective ways to do this that any professional can master once they know how, so building effective marketing systems and tactics that you can carry on using and and which are focussed on getting you more business is a key to long term success for any practice.

Business Adviser to the Advisers

Speaker.

Professional. Practiced. Proficient. Positioned. Personalised.
That’s what you get from every engagement with me, whether that is as a conference speaker, running workshops or delivering training sessions. Renowned for delivering high paced & information packed presentations that are fun – but with lots of practical takeouts for audiences. I don’t just talk about value. I deliver it every time.

Thinker.

I see the world differently to other professionals, and think differently. Strategic insight into how the changes in consumers, technology, marketing and delivery of professional services can result in doing business differently – and better – creates different options for professionals who are looking ahead.

Perhaps the greatest strength is the ability to help define and articulate points of difference that matter – creating value propositions that deliver meaningful positioning and messages to target markets.

Coach.

A great coach has the technical knowledge and competencies to be able to understand quickly where effort or resources  are best applied to achieve extraordinary results.  Balancing up the capability, capacity and opportunity issues of the practice, together with the resources, budgets and desire of the practitioners results in strategies that can work without creating stress.  They also have the skill and acumen to understand what your values, beliefs, strengths and weaknesses are – and how to work with them to achieve the greatest result.

One tactic to make people remember your message…in just another moment…
by Tony Vidler        Ever wondered why infomercials or news broadcasts come up with lines like this: “XYZ Corporation closed its doors on customers today leaving 10,000 without the products they had paid for already…more on that shortly.” The “more on that shortly” part creates intrigue of course….but the reason why TV stations do this is […]

Practice Growth Requires Leadership More Than Management
by Tony Vidler        The most frequent thing I see that prevents great practice growth and holds advisers back from developing their dream business is a lack of vision. I don’t mean “vision” in the namby-pamby buzz-word sense of having a beautiful set of words on a plaque on a wall that nobody really cares about. […]
