Let’s face it: managing a small business is hard. You’re strapped for time, resources, and budget. You’re running around in a million different directions, and you can’t afford to waste time or money. However, what you really can’t afford is to spend your money on the wrong investments.
While hiring a consulting firm may seem like a bad investment when you’re a small business, it’s actually in your best interest. Why? Well, think of it this way: let’s say you hire a new marketing manager to increase conversions. When the new marketer starts, he/she needs to spend time familiarizing him/herself with your business, analyzing past campaigns, and building a cohesive marketing plan, before creating content. That takes time. Time that you simply don’t have if you want to reach your goals. So to reach your goals on time, you might want to consider hiring a consultant.
1. You need a business plan…fast!
2. You need to keep increase profit, and keep costs low.
3. You need someone with the right skills for the job.
4. You need someone who knows best practices.
5. You need someone with a fresh perspective.
6. You need complete insight into what’s working or not.
7. You need someone for short-term or ad-hoc projects.
8. You need to cut costs, like expensive benefits.
9. You need to make the most of your limited resources.
10. You need the most “bang” for your buck.
When you have limited tools and resources, you need to get the most out of your investments. When you invest in a full-time employee, it’s a pretty big “bang” because it requires time and money – two of your most valuable resources – to recruit and hire that person. As a small business, you need to make sure that you’re investing in the right employee, otherwise, it could end up costing you more money in the long-run. The primary reason that companies turn to consulting is to get the expertise right when they need it, and only for as long as they need it. Ultimately, investing in a consultant gets them more “bang” for their buck in the long-run.
