How to make yourself scarce…and more valuable!
by Tony Vidler A well established economic AND behavioural principle is that people generally will have higher demand for that which is relatively scarce. Less of something makes it more valuable, right? It is a pretty sound principle that consumers tend to have a higher want for what is perceived to be harder to get […]
by Tony Vidler While loads of professionals have a linkedin account they haven’t realised the potential LinkedIn business benefits – and it is a business-to-business platform after all. I mean; that is what it exists for. Yet while many have created a presence they still struggle to make the transition from that to creating a […]
Advisers should use Facebook – and think like clients when doing it
by Tony Vidler Most Advisers using digital marketing today have Facebook as part of their marketing strategy, and I see most using it wrong in my view. Facebook can be an immensely powerful element of your content marketing, or engagement marketing, if it is used well. The key to using it effectively is […]
Prospecting: Reconnect to Create New Opportunities
by Tony Vidler A simple prospecting idea which usually pays off is simply re-connecting with those who you have spent time with, but did not do any business with.

Many professionals beginning with social media as part of their marketing mix fail to recognise that continual movement is a critical part of making […]
Pitching Your Marketing To The Target Client’s Buying Journey
by Tony Vidler Every practice needs to be pitching their marketing efforts at the ideal point in the target market’s buying process, because no practice has enough money and time to cover every possibility. Today’s consumers go through a process of engaging with professionals which is a little different to the consumers of 20 years […]
by Tony Vidler When it comes to building an audience of influencers, advocates, raving fans and interested spectators, it all begins with having your own Tight 5. If you follow rugby you probably got it straight away, but if you don’t follow rugby then this analogy will seem wierd, so humour me for a moment […]
Top Of Mind Awareness: Being Present Without Being A Nuisance
by Tony Vidler Promoting our personal professional brand is essentially all about creating top-of-mind-awareness. Being the person that our target market thinks of, and then calls, when they recognise a need or desire is our goal. We want to be “top of mind”. To achieve that we must master the art of being present, but […]
