Interview with Restaurant expert witness Howard Cannon discusses:

Q. What are some of the biggest mistakes expert witnesses make in their marketing?

A. I believe the 3 biggest mistake experts make in their marketing is that:

1] They do not consider the ROI [return on investment] of their marketing plans and budgets. In many instances one client is worth eight, ten, fifteen thousand dollars or more yet they are afraid to spend a few hundred or a few thousand dollars to get the visibility with advertising and marketing their expert services.

2] They determine what marketing tools to use based on emotional decision-making and hard-sales pitches versus on tactical thinking, strategy, and decision-making.

3] They try to be everything to everybody and they do not cut out their specific area of expertise and their specific type of cases – they end up being nothing to nobody and they cannot secure enough clients to sustain the business


Howard Cannon will be speaking at the SEAK National Expert Witness Conference to be held on May 3-4, 2014 in Orlando, FL.
