  1. Do an audit on your website – make sure your image and copy make your clients look good, which makes you look good. If you don't have a website – invest properly in one that makes you appear as a peer to executives.
  2. Choose a positioning strategy for your business that sets you up to meet unmet and under-met client needs and not be a competitor with internal resources.
  3. Include in your service descriptions on your website and proposal features such as outside perspective, stakeholder alignment, and sounding board support.
