Global Diversity Marketing

The marketplace is changing rapidly and so are your customers and employees. We can develop strategies that will help you leverage the opportunity and build a competitive advantage in the changing landscape. Many organizations are still using old traditional methods to reach their customers and prospects and often get disappointed with results.


The marketplace has huge need and demand for benefiting from the growth in diverse markets. Today, there are only a handful of companies catering to this need. Most of the services provided now are limited to diversity and inclusion consulting, mostly from an HR perspective. None of these services offer business growth strategy – and that motivates most business leaders to use these services.

E-Relationship was the first client and prospect e-connection tool in the insurance and banking sector in the United States and Canada. Today, it is indisputably the largest and most robust!  Agent testimonials attest to the system's effectiveness with increased appointments, increased sales, increased client loyalty and increased agent confidence. The effect of staying in touch with clients and connecting frequently with prospects has multiple advantages ­ all positive in their effect on production, retention and satisfaction.  The four phases of Prospect Attraction are Specific Prospect Focus, Creating Local Awareness Strategies, Building Agent Character Uniqueness and Implementing an Automatic Frequent Touch Strategy. Though there are four phases, Frequent Touch is the hallmark to prospect attraction. The inability or oversight of staying in frequent touch will cause decreased loyalty and awareness to fade.
