RainmakerVT courses are offered as part of four different bundles that correlate to lawyers' business development situations.

Getting Chosen

Learn how to manage a reliable process that motivates buyers to include you in the decision process and actually help them make their decision. 

You’ll eliminate rejection from your experience forever.

RainmakerVT teaches you a proven process to help buyers make informed, self-interested, confident, comfortable decisions -- in exactly the same way you help clients do that after they hire you...and you'll do it by using exactly the same skills, in exactly the same sequence, as when you practice law.

Getting Found

Most marketing programs fail because they depend on outdated concepts such as Targeting, which doesn’t match how human beings behave.  Nobody wants to be someone else’s sales target. Prospects only want to talk to you if and when they perceive that you can contribute something relevant to their business discussion.

RainmakerVT teaches you how to use the power and credibility of trusted media to position yourself as an expert on a business problem that your optimal prospects must solve, and are already talking about.
