Incentives For Clients: What is appropriate?
by Tony Vidler        What incentives are appropriate for encouraging clients to refer other clients?  Are incentives appropriate at all?   Some would even ask “Why provide incentives at all?  Surely if the product or the advice is good value in itself then no further incentive is needed?”   These questions around incentives for promotions […]
