How Does Small Business Consulting Work?
It starts with a conversation – which is normally free. The initial goal is to discuss where your company is currently at and then we get a solid idea of what you want your business to develop into.
An experienced consultant like John Cameron is often able to see options that you likely haven’t considered before. He’s helped hundreds of owners develop strong companies. Effective solutions may be closer than you expect.
Next, a plan is created it should come complete with pricing, time-frames and specific objectives. Rock Solid’s small business consulting delivers a great Return on Investment (ROI) Whatever you invest in business consulting you should get back in profits many times over. No-obligation consultations are available for owners in Langley and Abbotsford, BC.
We often get asked — what does this cost? That’s not a simple question to answer: businesses come in different sizes, owners have different goals, and companies have different levels of fitness — so to speak. That’s why we offer no-obligation consultations to business owners — so we can give you an accurate price upfront.
Once you’ve got the price your next question should be: when can I expect to have the money back? Consulting is an investment. The results should earn back your money — and more — via additional future profits.
If the plan makes sense to you then the work starts. The results are worth the effort. Often it is a combination of training, coaching and consulting. Coaching is a lot like teaching. The objective is to develop skill sets in you and perhaps some of your staff. An example of this could be marketing, sales and understanding financial information.
Consulting is when the consultant does the work. This could be strategic planning, building the financial information systems, creating the initial marketing plan, building the Company Accountability Matrix, or systemizing the company.
Often there is more than one area for improvement and every company is different so at the initial meeting it’s important to be open and honest about what you want and where you feel you need help.
