About Me
@I_COM

Let me tell you a story about a small
business client who was getting
phenomenal results.
www.i-com.net | info@i-com.net | 0161 402 3170 Copyright © I-COM 2015 | All rights reservedwww.i-com.net | info@i-com.net | 0161 402 3170
He had the most experienced member of the
team leading his campaign.
www.i-com.net | info@i-com.net | 0161 402 3170 Copyright © I-COM 2015 | All rights reservedwww.i-com.net | info@i-com.net | 0161 402 3170
The client asked
for someone new
to lead the
account.
www.i-com.net | info@i-com.net | 0161 402 3170 Copyright © I-COM 2015 | All rights reservedwww.i-com.net | info@i-com.net | 0161 402 3170
What happened?
LACK OF VISIBLE ENTHUSIASM
The client didn’t feel that his SEO lead was excited to work on his account.
DIDN’T TELL THE STORY WELL
The client felt that his SEO lead wasn’t very decisive, as if he didn’t believe his plan would
work.
DIDN’T DEMONSTRATE EMPATHY
The client felt that he didn’t click with his SEO lead and that they weren’t a good fit.
