Consulting

Being a small business owner is both exhilarating and frustrating – you’re the master of your own destiny, but it’s also all up to you. And sometimes this can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to marketing.

Throw in things like social media marketing and things like facebook, twitter, pinterest and instagram and most small businesses struggle to see how any of these could benefit their business and are confused at all the advice out there.

Your business model might survive on word of mouth initially, but do you have a plan for when things go quiet and most of all, are you creating brand awareness to keep your business top of mind when someone does need a service like yours?

There are so many ways to market your business, but jumping in the deep end with no plan or reason why you’re doing what you’re doing, will likely yield zero results and leave you feeling totally deflated.

It doesn’t have to be overwhelming or complicated and this is where I come in.
I offer a few different consulting services as follows:

ONE-ON-ONE CONSULT:
A 1.5 hour initial 1-on-1 session for R650.00/$50.00
These sessions are aimed at new or established small businesses, who don’t have a marketing plan or who need to refresh their existing plan, or add social media marketing to what they’re currently doing.
You’ll get to pick my brain over a cup of coffee either in person, if you’re in Durban, or over skype.
I have a pre-read document which you’ll receive beforehand to complete in your own time and then when we meet, you get to ask all the questions in your head that you think you should know the answers to, but don’t. Depending on the scope of this session, I’ll follow up with some recommendations on what to do next for your business.
Follow up sessions are R500.00/$40.00 and last up to 1.5 hours.

BRAND AUDIT & CONSULT:
A brand audit & a 1.5 hour session for R2000.00/$165.00
This is aimed at businesses who have a website & some social media pages, but they’re showing little to no results for them.
I do a brand audit in my own time and then follow up with a 1.5 hour session in person, if you’re in Durban, or via skype. I will outline what you’re currently doing and where you could improve, along with some recommendations on what to do next for your business.
Follow up sessions are R500.00/$40.00 and last up to 1.5 hours.

Still feeling stuck?
Which one of these describes you?

[A]
You are about to launch or already have a small business making a bit of money, but have no marketing plan and are feeling bewildered by that social media thing everyone is talking about.
[B]
Your brand or business is established, but you still think you’re too small to have a marketing plan.
This is my favourite!
Please know that it’s almost never too late to implement a plan to support your business.
[C]
You have a day job and want to start your own business, or you have a great business idea and have no idea how to get it off the ground.

A and B are where I come in.
Don’t stress if you’re a C – read on for what I recommend for you.

So, A or B sounds like you and you’re keen to book a 1-on-1 session, or have me do a brand audit & session – please get hold of me via the CONTACT page.
I’ll get back to you with some questions to find out about your brand and whether we would be a good fit.
Once I get that feedback, I’ll either set up a consultation – in person 1-on-1 if you’re in Durban, or via skype.
Or I’ll refer you to one of my amazing colleagues.

The latter is what I recommend for you if you’re a C-type.
I’ve got some pretty awesome colleagues, who specialise in various fields ranging from personal to business coaching, who’ll be able to assist you in discovering where your talents lie and how to reach your best potential.
