Business development strategy
Business development is the art of building lasting relationships with potential customers and expand existing markets or tapping into new markets. Business development consultants are both analytical and creative and know how to match supply and demand. Business development consultants are also good at establishing and maintaining relationships and building a network.
Most business development consultants are very goal-driven and enjoy working with predefined KPIs. Because of their insights into the market and an eye for the needs of a market, they know how to bring your company, product or service to the attention of the target group and to generate demand.

Business development is a matter of perseverance
Approaching a new market or providing a better service to an existing target group requires a great deal of experience and enormous perseverance.

Business development and sales
There is a difference between selling something and approaching a new market or expanding an existing market as business development. Sales are much more short-term focused, while a business development specialist will build up a network and establish sustainable relationships and partnerships. What a business development professional deals with is, for example:
- Setting up a distribution network
- Gaining the interest of a retail channel
- Gaining new partnerships
- Concluding long-term contracts
Experienced business development consultants focus on the long term instead of a direct sale. In need of further growth or sustainable expansion within existing or new target groups? Call now for advice from a business development specialist.
