Having a website that stands out is important in today’s digital world. Being mobile friendly, fully responsive, easy to navigate and well-designed are givens.

The professional services sector has seen a huge shift in the way it markets itself with social media starting to play a key role. As with any marketing activity, strategy is essential - setting and identifying objectives and metrics. We have all seen examples of the wrong use of content, inappropriate tone and inconsistency on a firm’s social media platforms.

With many competing pressures such as time, resource, budget and competition in the professional services sector, many firms are missing marketing opportunities and in particular, the value of collaboration.

It can be a struggle to stand out from the crowd in the ever-growing and competitive professional services sector. 

How can you make your firm stand out from the competition? Finding a strong differentiator can create competitive advantage but it is not easy to do, especially when there are so many firms offering the same or similar services. Many firms come up with a differentiator but it doesn’t actually differentiate them at all.

Many professional services firms are reluctant to get involved in marketing, implement ‘new ideas’ and are afraid to steer away from traditional behaviours.
