Yet Christine believes that it’s not the product, service or cause that people buy from you or your company: It’s YOU. And selling yourself is an art.

Selling Intangibles: Four Keys to Successful Service

Whether you are selling an actual product or a true service, it all comes down to you and the service you provide your clients.

Price and what is yours saying about the quality of service? Brand, and what are you doing to promote yours?
