Just yesterday I had a short Skype call with a friend running a startup. We talked about her current marketing situation, current problems, identified her goals and decided on the next steps she should take. She already had a clear view what she should do but needed some expertise to get it right.
She had a lot of questions – I had the answers.
All she needed to proceed was roughly 60 minutes of my time.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get the same benefit?
I have been in the same situation a few years back. Our marketing was stuck, and we badly needed some expert advice. Knowing the right person to ask could have saved us a lot of time and money – and maybe even prevented our startup failure.
Back the we did not have a marketing expert on quick dial – so we had to take the long route and learn it all ourselves. That wasn’t ideal and we believe no one should have to do that. The answers to your marketing questions are already out there. There are experts (like ourselves) that can easily solve your problems and provide you with the knowledge you need. You just have to have the opportunity to ask your specific questions to the right expert.
We Know How To Get Your Marketing Back On Track
As a quick overview over what we talked about in these 2 articles, let me tell you this: Online marketing consulting is broken because it is far too often organized in projects of far a too large scope. Modern online marketing is a series of small steps, of testing assumptions, collecting data and deciding for a next step based on that data. A marketing consulting project that tries to make a plan for more than a couple of days or weeks at a time isn’t going to work in reality.
You do not need a full-blown marketing consulting project – and many young, small or freelancing businesses couldn’t afford that anyway. You also should not need to spend a lot of time to search for all the expertise you need and pile up endless theoretical knowledge on marketing.
The solution is short marketing sessions with high intensity with a marketing expert. And that is exactly what we are want to give you!
Your Marketing Expert for Hire
We already hinted that we are working on a solution – a better way to get expert marketing knowledge to you at exactly the time when you need it.
Tomorrow we are going to offer you this.
Here is the basic concept:
Starting tomorrow, we are going to offer 90-minute consulting calls (using either Skype or a video conferencing service). You will be able to book us directly from our website and we guarantee that you will get your appointment within 7 days. These sessions will be laser focused on getting you the knowledge and ideas on how to proceed.
- assess your situation
- identify goals and metrics
- decide on next steps
We will make follow-up calls available at a reduced rate.
You do not have to hire us for days or weeks or buy a retainer but can book our expertise exactly when you need us: For instance when you are stuck and do not know how to proceed. Or when your marketing process is not working as well as you would want it to and need an expert to help you identify the best ways to optimize and scale.
We have seen in the past that in many consulting projects the most valuable time for the client is the first one or two hours. In this fairly short time, the worst pitfalls are identified, and pressing questions answered.
We are not talking about setting up a full-blown marketing strategy in 90 minutes. That would be nonsense. We are talking about the daily obstacles or drawbacks that keep you from reaching your goals. We strongly believe that you need to build some marketing expertise within your company. But we can help you learn faster and avoid the backlashes. We can help you grow, scale and move forward.
When are the 90-consulting sessions right for you?
Our 90-minute consulting calls are right for you whenever you want to consult marketing experts to determine the next steps in your marketing journey or is you have some specific questions you want to ask the experts.
Are you wondering what kind of questions we can answer and what type of help we can provide in 90 minutes? Here are some examples of 60 – 90-minute consulting calls we did in the past:
