VANGUARD PRO SERVICE USERS:

The program is best suited to individuals interested in optimizing success, but challenged. Our clients generally fall within one or more of these categories;

  • Exhibit great potential, but are “stuck in the pack” and don’t know how to break out.
  • Have a disappointing ROI of income as a function of time invested in a career.
  • Watch others succeed wildly and wonder how this occurs.
  • Are exhausted “networking nomads”.

RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR CLIENTS:

Acting as your advisor/coach/implementer, we focus on one mission: To help you optimize career success and realize desired levels of wealth and independence.

TACTICS EMPLOYED:

While each client is unique and requires specialized services, following are examples of our approach:

  • Confidential career development strategic planning: Experts employ a proprietary SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses,Opportunities and Threats) as the starting point and use the data to develop a comprehensive personal career management plan.
  • Referral generation through “Barter Marketing Campaigns”: We manage a proprietary system for securing prospects from trusted advisors.
  • Conception and production of video marketing programs: We produce both single marketing/education, and ongoing “talk-show” formats featuring our clients: The video marketing wave is already upon us. Statistics are startling.
  • Placement on boards: We position our clients as advisory members of targeted boards designed to increase visibility and generate more referrals.
  • Managed marketing joint ventures: We identify, and then facilitate the development of cross-referring relationships.
  • Event marketing campaigns: We produce and promote panel presentations, featuring Vanguard Pro clients to targeted prospects and centers-of-influence that are potential referral sources.
  • Services expansion programs: We use diagnostic tools to identify and market additional products and services Vanguard Pro clients can offer.
