18 Segmenting Your Clients – Qualitative Criteria In no particular order: How big (AUM, Revenue, etc) is the client? What AUM/Revenue/Referral/COI potential does the client have? How profitable is the client? Has the client referred business? Is the client willing to refer business? Is the client a center of influence (COI)? Is the client a business owner? Is the client part of my ideal target market? Is the client reasonable? Do I like working with the client? On a scale of 1-10, how close is the client to my picture of a "perfect" client? Of course, the above criteria can be individual weighted for the purpose of formulating a scoring system. All Rights Reserved to ActiFi18
