Business consultant for hire

Small businesses don’t always like to bring in the big guns. And that’s fine by me, I prefer a more nimble, more personal approach anyway. If you need help but aren’t entirely sure what kind or where to start, I’ll start with a completely blank page. I’ll look at the present, the future, your ideal customer expectations, and the competitive landscape. Armed with those insights we can begin to build a strategy and create a competitive advantage.

Strategic consulting

Perfect for businesses seeking a new direction.

You’re done with throwing mud at the wall and seeing what sticks. Now you know where you want to be, but you’re unsure about taking those first steps to get there. So why not sound it out with someone impartial.

Does this sound familiar?

  • Your business has outgrown your brand, so you want a rebrand to take things to the next level.
  • Your website is not really hitting the mark, you want an unbiased opinion before launching a new one.
  • You’re living in overwhelm because you’ve got so many ideas, but no idea how to implement them.
  • You have a great new product or service, but are not sure how to promote it.
  • You need a marketing plan, or just a better understanding of the landscape you’re operating in.

Next steps

We'll get to know each other with a free tissue meeting. If you think I can help you, I'll ask you to commit to a strategic consulting session. The WWS session will be tailored to your unique situation. And at the end of it, you'll have a clearer direction and actionable strategies to go forth and do great things.

Your strategic consulting session will include

  • An honest review of your brand or website

    I’ll share my suggestions for what you need to do, think about or change to make your brand or business more effective.

  • 90-minute live or online session or online

    Together we’ll examine your processes or user journey to uncover any opportunities hidden within them. We'll then reverse engineer a plan of action.

Before we start there will be some homework. I'll send you a questionnaire to gain as much information as possible so we're making the most of your live session.

Session packages are available for ongoing support after your initial session is completed

Strategic planning

Established businesses ready for the next level.

You’ve been in business a while now - so what’s next? You’ve got a website, you’ve had some success but it’s time to own your competitive edge and take things up a notch.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You’re struggling with the decisions you need to make about your online presence or digital products.
  • You want a system that helps generate consistent revenue instead of the feast and famine cycle you’re trapped in.
  • You just want a plan that you can follow and implement because you get caught up in the day-to-day of it all.
  • You need some direction to get back to creating what you want.
  • You just need to make some changes and want some help planning it out.

Next Steps

We'll get to know each other with a free tissue meeting. If you think I can help you, I'll ask you to commit to a strategic consulting session. The WWS session will be tailored to your unique situation. And at the end of it, you'll have a clearer direction and actionable strategies to go forth and do great things.

Your strategic planning session will include:

  • Getting back to your vision

    Reviewing why you started, where you’re currently headed, and where you are on that journey.

  • Ideal customer profiling

    Identifying your ideal customers, your whale customers, and developing a profile for each. We’ll look at a solid proposition for hitting the mark with your audiences.

  • Analysis of your systems

    We’ll look at your current systems and user journey mapping to discover the touch points we need to focus on to deliver on your brand promise.

  • Reviewing your sales pipeline

    We’ll map out your sales pipeline, identify opportunities for optimisations, and make absolutely sure you’re tracking the right numbers.

  • Ideation

    This process often identifies opportunities for up-selling or packaging services in ways that you’ve not done before. We’ll explore the potential to develop new revenue streams.

Before we start there will be some homework for you and for me. I'll send you a questionnaire to gain as much information as possible so we're making the most of your strategic planning session. This will be a four-hour session, either in person or online.

Investment from: £2,900

(Includes website review, competitive analysis, operations/user journey mapping)

The strategic planning sessions are intensive, with consultancy and coaching commitments I can only take on a limited number of planning sessions each quarter. Sometimes we can run these on a weekend if you need to get out of your space to do that.

Digital projects

Established businesses undertaking a new digital project.

You’ve got a website and it’s time for a new one or you’re looking at creating a new digital product to enhance your business.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You’re considering hiring a creative digital agency to design, develop and build your new website.
  • You want help selecting the right partner and some direction on how best to build and manage that relationship.
  • You’re not entirely sure how to scope out the project.
  • You need advice on choosing the best platform for your new website or digital project.
  • You don’t have the capacity in house to create a new website project or a digital product.

Next steps

We'll start off with a free tissue meeting where I'll dig in to find out where you are now and where you want to be. I'll then ask you to commit to a strategic planning session. The WWS session will then be tailored to your unique situation.

Things that I can help with:

  • Brief and planning

    Understanding your business requirements and translating that into a brief for a digital agency or partner so you avoid costly mistakes.

  • Sourcing

    Sourcing and selecting the best agency partner for your project, and on-boarding them to kick your project off with the best foot forward.

  • User journey

    Looking at your ideal customers and mapping the journey we want them to go on to make sure they experience the best of your brand.

    Identifying key performance indicators to track and improve your sales funnel and ensure the best return on investment.

  • Content planning

    Developing a clear, strategic content strategy to engage your customers and maximise website sales and competitive advantage.

  • Training

    I can also train your existing team on the basics of SEO, working with an agency and using your website. We can identify any gaps you have, and ensure those are plugged for a successful project going forward.

Before we start there will be some homework for you and for me. I'll send you a questionnaire to gain as much information as possible so we're making the most of your strategic planning session. Digital projects consultancy will vary depending on the size of your project.
