If you're just starting your business and are after some advice, or you've already got a business but need help with something in particular - one of my free business help consultations could be just what you need.
Why are the Consultations Free? What's the catch?
There is no catch. I often get asked why I offer my time to offer free business help. Partly it's because I like helping people, but it's also my opportunity to get to know you and your business. Every person and every business is unique. Some people just need a little bit of advice which I can give them within the consult, others need more help than that.
I never discuss my services within the consult - or use them as a way of selling myself. I follow the consultation up with a meeting report which is sent to you by email, it contains a summary of our meeting as well as a list of action points and additional advice. I end the report with a short proposal of how I could potentially help you.
There is never any obligation to use my services and you won't be hounded by phone calls or emails - I generally have a waiting list of clients so there simply isn't time for that nonsense. You are of course always welcome to come back to me at any point after the consult (although I do have to limit the free consults to one per business).
If you'd like to hear what some of my clients have to say about me, take a look at my testimonial page or Facebook page. You can also get a more in-depth look at how I work with clients by taking a look at my recent projects on my Case Studies page.
Ok, so what happens during the consult?
We'll arrange to speak at a mutually convenient time. I'll try and arrange it for as soon as possible, but as the consults are free I do limit the number I do each week. The meeting can take place either over the phone, as an online video conference, or depending on where you live, face to face.
Consults generally take around 45 minutes to an hour. You'll tell me about your business, where you've got to so far and any problems you've been having. We'll go through a bit of history and background. I'll jump in occassionally with the odd question. If you have one, I'll take a quick look at your Facebook page and website and give you some feedback and tips on those. I'll then offer you some advice of what you can be doing from here to get your business where you want it to go.
As I mentioned above, I'll then follow up our meeting with a summary report which will include any advice I've given plus some additional tips and an action plan of what you could be doing to move things forward. It will also include a basic proposal of how I could help you in the future should you want additional help.
