    Value-Added Services to Offer Your Clients

    Presented by Adam Zajac, NCRW and Brittney Ripley (Beck), NCRW, CCELW

    Friday, September 20, 2019

    12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., ET 

    In this webinar we will cover several service add-ons which can easily be added to your service offerings to improve your clients’ job search efforts, increase client satisfaction rates, and provide additional revenue.

    The value-added items which will be reviewed include:

    • Labor Market Analysis Services – We will review the type of information gleaned from Job Browser Pro and OASYS, explore how you can leverage them for better client success rates, and add them to your services.
    • Job Search Tracking Documents – We will provide examples of job search tracking tools you can use to help clients be more methodical as they apply, how to use them to further client success, and share how to incorporate these services into your pricing.
    • Elevator Pitch Development –We will walk you through approaches to developing an elevator pitch, the value it provides for the client, and how to add this onto standard service packages.
    • Interview Preparation – We will discuss a streamlined interview preparation process that you can offer as an add-on service to ensure your clients ace their interviews and not just land them.
    • Job Search Template Letters – Extending the client’s brand to template documents (cover letter, thank you letter, etc.) is a no-brainer. Examples will be discussed so you know how to extend a brand to template documents through formatting and content.
    • Needs-Focused Coaching – We will share how to add needs-focused coaching to a project for those clients who need extra TLC throughout the writing process, and how to charge for it.

    Eligible for 1 CEU. This one-hour webinar is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers. It will be recorded and distributed to all participants.

    Using a Lead Magnet for Automatic Follow Up and Consistent Sales

    Two Part Webinar - October 4 and October 18 

    Presented by Rebecca Metz  

    Part I - Friday, October 4, 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., ET
    Creating a Lead Magnet on Your Website  

    Part II - Friday, October 18, 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., ET
    Nurturing and Following Up On Leads  

    Creating a lead magnet on your website is a powerful way to turn website visitors into new clients. By implementing a lead magnet (or opt in) on your website, you have the power to collect email addresses from those who visit your website, giving you the opportunity to share your expertise in an authentic way and build your sales. Automating your follow up creates more consistency in sales and leaves you free to do what you do best!

    Part 1 - Creating a Lead Magnet on Your Website

    In this webinar you will:

    • Increase sales on your website through a systemized funnel.
    • Build credibility with prospects through content marketing.

    Part 2 - Nurturing and Following Up On Leads

    In this webinar you will:

    • Create a powerful nurturing sequence that turns website visitors to new customers.
    • Automate processes for following up with potential sales.

    Each presentation will be recorded and distributed to participants. Participants registered for both webinars will receive both recordings.

    Parts 1 and 2 are stand-alone topics, so you can register for one or both. Each one-hour webinar is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers. Each webinar will be recorded and distributed to those who are registered; neither qualify for CEUs.

    Discounted registration pricing for both webinars:

    Member pricing for both Part I & II: $32.50 (save $7.48 from stand-alone pricing).

    Nonmember pricing for both Part I & II: $70.00 (save $9.98 from stand-alone pricing)


    About Rebecca Metz:

    In a room full of powerful entrepreneurs, Rebecca Metz realized that they were reaching the top of their game, but sadly missing the mark with getting their message out. From that, an idea was born.

    Rebecca Metz, creator of Web Pages that Sell, developed a system that helps her clients to get their magic online and get more business . . . consistently. An intrinsic educator, Rebecca’s secret sauce is taking the scary out of technology. She teaches clients to use and manage their website and integrate it with social media and other marketing tools to create a powerful brand image — one they can update as often as needed.

    “My clients understand how their branding tools work, and they have control over their technology,” she says. “They call on me when they need to, but know they have the power to make informed decisions and execute changes themselves.”

      ** Live attendance is NOT required. ALL registrants will receive the recorded link to the webinar. 

      By participating in this course and/or webinar, you are agreeing to let the instructor/facilitator call you by name during the course and/or webinar when addressing questions or information. You also understand that session recordings may be made available to any NRWA member/nonmember who registers/downloads the recordings at anytime in the future.
