The famous English author, Gladys Brownwyn Stern, remarked: “Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone.” And we at MARKETLINK could not agree more. Throughout the year, many of us look at ways we can express our thanks to our clients in a meaningful and genuine way. We can help.

Client Perception Surveys aren’t just about learning how you need to improve—it’s more important to discover where your firm excels. Why not learn your differentiators directly from the ones who know what they are—your clients?

It’s all about relationships in our industry - we can’t maintain those relationships if we don’t know where people are. Whether you use an Excel spreadsheet or a CRM like Cosential or Deltek, invest the time needed to keep it current.
