“Prospecting is the number one concern for any sales professional—or for that matter anyone who is looking for new career opportunities. That’s why I started Big Fish Networking in the first place. And I have to say, when it comes to tackling this challenging issue, Prospect & Flourish nails it better than any resource out there. Luscher takes a complex topic and keeps it simple, both in his book and in our workshops.”
—Steve Baldzicki, Founder & President, Big Fish Networking, Columbus, OH

“Keith Luscher’s ‘wedge’ strategy works! Although this isn’t the norm, one of the recipients of a recent letter, the president of the organization, organized a meeting with his leadership and me after I made the initial contact. He informed his assistant to contact me, to arrange a time for five of us to meet at once!”
—Merri Bame, Executive Communication Coach, Breaking Down Barriers, Columbus, OH

“After retiring from a successful forty-year career in the life insurance business, I wasn’t ready to just play golf. I wanted to pass along to others in the industry the knowledge of how to effectively prospect for new clients. Achieving this goal required more than just having this knowledge—I needed some direct guidance and assistance in packaging it, and combining it with the input of other colleagues in the industry. This is where Keith’s service was invaluable. With Keith Luscher’s help, my resulting program and textbook, Prospect or Perish, is taking the financial services industry by storm. He is truly gifted, on many levels.”
—I. David Cohen, CLU, ChFC, LUTCF; Adjunct Faculty Member, The American College, Columbus, OH

“When Keith Luscher first came to work for our firm back in the early nineties, one of the challenges we faced was marketing—both in doing the right things, and in doing them right. Keith played a leadership role in creating a consistent marketing structure that allowed us to take full advantage of the resources at our disposal, and has produced results. We continue to use this structure to this very day. Further, his expertise in marketing and media has proved invaluable through many highly successful client engagements spanning more than ten years.”
—John Goettler, CFRE, (then) President, Goettler Associates, Inc., Columbus, OH

“When we were looking for assistance in growing our organization, we interviewed several firms, most of whom reflected only a superficial understanding, recommending their standard approach to solving our problem. We hired Keith Luscher for one reason: he listened. He invested the time necessary to understand our organization, our mission, and where we were coming from. Keith asked questions we hadn’t even asked ourselves—demonstrating not only an understanding, but an investment in a shared approach.”
—Julie Harmon, Ph.D., Executive Director, IMPACT Safety, Columbus, OH

—Lin Hess, The Columbus College of Art & Design, Columbus, OH

“In promoting the GE Profile Harmony Clothes Care System, we needed a strategy that would go well beyond product publicity. Peppercom’s idea was to create a light-hearted campaign pitting women against men on the subject of why men hate doing laundry and position GE Consumer Products as experts on the “Great Laundry Divide” by generating and sustaining significant media coverage about National Men Do Laundry Month. As the author of Real Foreplay—a book that revealed the importance of chore equity in establishing household harmony—Keith Luscher added the element of sexiness to laundry by serving as our spokesperson. The results were outstanding, and are highlighted in one of our favorite case studies.”
—Meggan Lennon, Account Executive, Peppercom, New York, NY

—Matthew Palmer, CFP, President, The Joseph Group Capital Management, Columbus, OH

“When our company made a significant investment in a new tradeshow display, we knew we wanted some kind of video element to achieve maximum impact on prospects, customers and the manufacturers whose products we distribute. However, we couldn’t quite put our finger on the right solution. After one short meeting with our staff, Keith Luscher was able to recommend, design and create just the solution we needed. Tradeshows are a big part of our ongoing marketing. Thanks to his assistance, we continue to create maximum results from our investment. In fact, it’s already been copied by some of our competitors.”
—Craig Peterson, Vice President, Webster Veterinary (then the Columbus Serum Company), Columbus, OH
