How to Make Your Outreach Campaign Work

I was speaking to a client last week about her marketing plan. She had developed a somewhat complicated plan to get the attention of her prospective clients. It had to do with networking within an organization, getting attention and credibility and then setting up appointments with those she met. Look, nothing wrong with networking.
