We're an Extension of Your Team
As a small business marketing consultant, we provide a valuable piece that's missing from most packaged marketing services at larger agencies. That is genuine, one-on-one support and guidance.
Projects Plus is a small business like yours. We don't have a staff of salespeople, customer service personnel, or account managers. You'll be working directly with one of the owners or one of our specialists. Your consultations are with folks who actually work in the trenches, doing the marketing for your business.
It makes a HUGE difference.
If you want feedback on something, have questions, want to discuss strategy, or need some guidance, we're here. Just call, text, or email and we'll schedule a time to talk.
In fact, if we're providing you with full-service local internet marketing (a combination of several or all of our services), we expect you to join us for phone consultations every 4 to 6 weeks. We're partnering with you in your business and we need your participation to succeed.
Small Business Marketing Consultant Services
Consultation is a necessary ingredient in our local marketing offering.
It gives us a chance to:
- Get to know you and your business. Seasonality, ideal customers, your challenges and goals, previous marketing tactics you've deemed successful or not - this kind of knowledge about you allows us to sharpen our customization and performance efforts on your behalf.
- Continue your momentum. Sometimes, we'll need your help. Perhaps you have inside information on a competitor we're battling for positioning with on the internet; you can fill us in on some of the frequently asked questions your customers ask; we may ask you to proof new content, troubleshoot account logins, or help us verify local directory listings.
- Add DIY marketing to your mix. There are certain things we simply cannot do for you - such as asking your past customers for online reviews or referrals, tracking lead sources, or building a project photo gallery. But we can help you or your team develop and execute DIY marketing so it becomes a regular part of doing business for you. These types of activities are very inexpensive ways to bring in new leads and repeat business.
How Does Marketing Consultation Benefit You?
Your Small Business Marketing Consultant PROTECTS Your Best Interests
You are probably solicited frequently for various paid advertising and marketing opportunities. Let us know about it and we'll provide feedback.
For example, should you sign up with Houzz, Angie's List, Porch, or Yelp? It depends on a number of factors. If you do, how do you maximize results and get a good return on investment?
We will research the opportunity further in your local market and share our expertise.
In another example, everything you do on the internet affects your online presence, positively or negatively.
Our goal is to protect your online presence so it is working for you - not against you.
Local Marketing Consultation EMPOWERS You
You can save a lot of money BY learning to perform certain marketing activities on your own or with the help of a spouse, administrative assistant, office manager, or another person on your team.
We provide that training and guidance to you and your team.
It isn't good for a local business owner to be completely dependent on outside marketing vendors or services. After all, who cares about your business more than you do?
Vendors and services will come and go - you are a permanent and vested fixture in your business. You should know enough to make good marketing decisions and ensure the basics are getting done right.
A Trusted Resource You Can Rely On is AWESOME
As previously mentioned, just about everything you do online, and sometimes offline, affects the strength and performance of your overall internet presence.
We do not provide all internet marketing services, but we want to know about the other marketing tactics you are pursuing to ensure it helps you rather than hurts you. Surely, we'll have comments, suggestions, or recommendations.
This is one way we partner with you as an advocate for you and your business.
Loyalty is extremely important to us. We've got your back.
As your small business marketing consultant, we help you improve every aspect of your marketing, set goals, track results, and follow an action plan that gets results.
