What Is it?
Marketing Consultancy is a more direct and deeper approach to Business Healing. I will spend a few days with you in your business (and with your staff) to gain a deep understanding of where your dissatisfaction currently lays within your business, where your business is now, and where it needs to be in the future.
Through the marketing consultancy process, we will take a close look at your client base (who’s profitable and who’s not) and what marketing you have been doing with what messages. From there, we will work together to plan what changes need making and what resources you can pull on to get them changed.
Following our planning stage, I will then work as your marketing mentor over the next few months to give you guidance, coaching, direction, give you kick up the rear…whatever you need to make the changes. I also offer a safe and secure place to be when it all feels rocky: changes can throw up all sorts of disarray, but they do settle down in the end; it’s all about changing the paradigm!
What You Get
Generally between three and five marketing consultancy days to begin with, concluding with an Executive Summary style marketing report and recommendations for your business. We will be meeting and communicating regularly during this time.
Then monthly meetings in your office or via Skype for mentoring.
Emails and phone call support in between times.
How Long It Lasts
The initial marketing consultancy will take place over four to six weeks.
After then, it depends!
Mentoring and on-going marketing direction depends on how big your business is as to how long it takes to turn that business around. More established businesses are like big ships: they take a while to slow down, turn around, and pick up speed in a new direction.
Some businesses can get themselves on the right track within six months, others take 18 months to two years. It depends on how much we have to work through. I can give you an idea of time when we first speak, and I only ask for a month’s notice at any time, so you’re only committed for as long as you think is right.
What It Costs
Due to the bespoke nature of how marketing consultancy will relate to the needs and requirements of your business, fees will be provided following an initial phone conversation and face to face meeting.
Any Small Print
Not much! I prefer to have an honest and open, positive, trusting and mutually beneficial working relationship rather than lots of terms and conditions! However:
I will ask for a full month’s notice of termination in writing at any time.
Marketing consultancy fees will always be due in two instalments: 50% in advance, and 50% on completion.
