How a sales and marketing consultant helps grow your business

We’ve all seen it. That great business that never really gets off the ground. Or maybe it gets a LITTLE off the ground but never really takes off. 

If you’re the owner of that business it can be terribly frustrating to know that you’ve got a great service or product but you’re stuck at the starting gate.

This is usually when business owners start seeking out experts who can help them grow but it can be overwhelming to know who you should hire to help you get to the next level.

Let me tell you three key things that a sales and marketing consultant can do so you can see if this might be the type of expert you need to hire so your business can take off as it should. 

 We get down to business

If you want someone to help you overcome your inner mindset blocks, that’s great and it has its place in your growth process. When you’re ready to get down and dirty with the real work of growing a business, a sales and marketing consultant is the person you need to talk to. 

The first thing we’ll do is ask the right questions so we know what you are trying to accomplish. We want to uncover the real issues and challenges you’re facing and determine what is preventing you from moving to the next level of success. There’s no fussing around with us; when we start working with you, we’re ready to get down to business right away.

We tell you what to do

Not in a bossy way … well, maybe in a bit of a bossy way. The thing is that once we know what your problem is, we can’t wait to tell you how to solve it.

We’re not in the business of giving you vague ideas or suggestions of things you might want to consider. We’re going to give you an actionable plan. We shine when we’re creating step-by-step guides with defined, actionable plans for growth (and, yes, then telling you how to implement them).

We stick around

Once we have given you your personalized roadmap to success we don’t disappear. We’re available to you for as long as you need us in case trends in your business shift or if you run into an unexpected or new roadblock.

We’ll help you tweak your plan as needed and make sure you’re still on the right road to growth. We’re invested in your success and we’ve got your back. We’ll be your biggest cheerleader while you put your plan into action and leap to the next level. 

Are you ready for a sales and marketing consultant?

A sales and marketing consultant is best suited to a business owner who has been working to grow their company for at least a year and has a good handle on what is working and what isn’t. If you’re ready to do what it takes to get out of the rut you’re in and start taking action right now then a sales and marketing consultant may be exactly what you need.

Remember though, that every business is different so you should make sure that the consultant you’re hiring has the same values as you. If you simply listen to the sales pitch of a consultant you may be hiring the wrong person. Remember, some people are great at throwing pixie dust and making you believe they can solve all of your problems. Take the time to have a consultation first with whomever you are considering hiring to make sure you’re on the same page.  The consultant who you feel really gets you, and digs deep to learn your real business story, acts as your advisor.  And this is where those wins begin to happen.

If you think you’re ready to see what a sales and marketing consultant can do for you I’d love to offer you a free one-on-one consultation to discover if we’re a good fit!

  1. […] A marketing consultant can help your women-led business through a process. Then come up with a plan for YOU.  The strategy is based on YOUR goals – not theirs. If you have to tell them what you want through the process, you may simply be working with an order taker. And, that could be why you are disappointed. If you need someone to help you with actual guidance, you need to let them know. […]
