Gaining a Competitive Advantage: Leveraging Professional Certifications to Increase Profits

In a competitive market, differentiation is key. Establishing a reputation of excellence provides advantages when building proposals and closing sales. Certification is a clear metric by which a company can begin to establish credibility with clients and position themselves well in the marketplace. However, clients often aren’t familiar with the nuances of certifications and how proof of competency relates to the final outcome and quality of a project. This course will prepare businesses to educate clients on the value and significance of professional certification as well as provide marketing resources to leverage the industry recognized credentials which can be used to close sales while maintaining profit margins. Attendees are also encouraged to utilize additionally available CEDIA resources which support customized planning to achieve both Member of Excellence company status and individualized consultation on developing a professional development pathway.
