Business Development is the process that results in attracting new customers and penetrating existing markets. At its core it can be defined as approaching a company to suggest that there is value in doing business with each other.
It has a consultative emphasis that conveys that you are going to be deeply involved in helping them reach their goals in conjunction with your own. It suggests more of an alliance between two companies than a vendor-customer relationship and its ultimate objective is to produce a relationship that is based more on a partnership rather than client/supplier.
In order to be successful within the discipline of Business Development an individual needs to be consistently engaging in activities that result in revenue. The activities need to be consistent and measurable, and revenue needs to be traceable to these activities. These often include, looking outside your normal sales channels /partners /customers and finding new reasons that potential customers/partners/channels can engage with you by establishing and bringing to fruition a mutual beneficial relationship.
The activities will often include activities such as cold calling, prospecting through mail shots, attending meetings arranged by telemarketing teams, attending industry events in order to network, seeking recommendations and referrals and being generally proactive in the approach for gaining new revenue streams in all service lines.
