Effective Marketing - Selling to Uncle Sam and the Granite State
Position your business for successful selling to the largest customer on earth – our government! Government bid opportunities are usually required to be published, but how do you find the ones you’re interested in without devoting too much time to the search? This workshop will identify techniques and shortcuts to help you know what opportunities are open to you, in time to respond. We’ll look at major Federal sources, such as FedBizOpps, some agency-specific sites, and we’ll also review state bid postings.

We will also identify who needs and wants your product/service; how to locate key individuals to market your products to; and discuss effective presentation of your company and product/service to the government customer via written and electronic media. If you have a capabilities sheet for your company, bring it with you.
