Tired of paying agencies for… who knows? Want to take your business’s marketing efforts in-house, but not 100% sure where to start? Let PBD help you get moving with our small business consulting services.
We’re not talking about a high-level overview and a pat on the back…
We’ll be your marketing business coach and teach you the skills needed to grow your business in this digital marketplace.
Who’s this program for?
Small business owners looking to run your business and not your marketing strategy.
Business owners who have struggled to find the time to create effective campaigns that move the needle for their businesses online.
From folks that like the idea of bringing their marketing in-house, but don’t really know what key pieces they need to focus on other than a Facebook page and an email address… all the way up to businesses doing 50k+ in monthly revenue looking to get to that next level.
With our strategy consulting session, PBD will help you get set up for the long term.
We’ll help you identify problems in your efforts and correct them before they can affect your long-term goals or your cash flow.
Whether you need to rewrite, or in some cases write, a business plan to make better use of your time and money, or just become more efficient at project management, we’ll help you lay out the path needed to spend time on your business instead of full time IN your business.
What sets PBD apart from other consulting firms?
First and foremost, we’re not a consulting firm and we shy away from “marketing consultant” as well. We’re a team of practitioners and experts that spend their time DOING the work not just talking about it.
We’ll give you the hands-on training, step by step, that no other consulting practice could ever offer.
Most firms are so large that they tell you the theory and not the method. The theory is great when everything is running like a well-oiled machine and you have free time to dabble.
If you want results, the method is what matters.
How often are we meeting?
Our small business consulting calls are an hour a week. We know you have plenty to worry about, and PBD wants to give you the most value in the shortest possible window.
The basic consulting call format is as follows:
• Approx 15 min, catch up on actionable items and data trends from/since the previous call
• Approx 30 min of deep dive and next steps with tools, tactics, and strategic planning
• Approx 15 min project outline on actionable items to be accomplished before the next call
If it sounds too simple… it is. Our small business consulting services are not meant to confuse or bewilder, instead they are meant to be easy, insightful and most importantly actionable!
How long must I stay enrolled?
It’s really up to you.
We know you have a business to run and our goal is not to keep you forever, but to get you to a level that you feel comfortable on your own.
Our pricing is month to month so after the first 4 sessions (1st session is a little looser in regards to the first 15 min chunk to get a better understanding of your current state), if you’re happy where you’re at, or you feel like it’s not the right fit… then you don’t have to renew our consulting services.
Who is our small business consulting service NOT for?
Anyone who doesn’t want to put in the work.
If you’re looking for a simple solution to a complex marketing landscape… just hire the agency half of PBD.
Unless you’re willing to devote the time needed, nothing we say, layout, or teach you will matter.
We can pull back the curtain on business marketing, but you’ll have to pull the levers and flip the switches to actually make it work!
The other type of business (or person) that our business consulting services won’t work for are those without a budget.
There is no magic wand when it comes to marketing. There are data-driven decisions that lead you to profitable returns.
If you’re looking to build world-class marketing campaigns on a shoe-string budget, it’s not a realistic proposition. Not saying shoe-sting is bad, we all start somewhere, but you have to be willing to risk capital for a return. (Here’s a free hint, know your “Customer Lifetime Value”, it will help you determine what your budgets/risk should be.)
We’re not saying you need 10k monthly minimums, but you will need a budget that allows you the time and bandwidth to rapid test marketing campaigns until a winner can be honed and optimized.
What will I learn from the PBD consulting services?
It really depends on your particular business. We like to say that “there is no such thing as cookie cutter” in today’s digital landscape.
Which is true to a point. There are baselines and best practices to start with, and you customize from there.
So if it makes sense for your business, we can teach you skills like Facebook marketing, SEO, Remarketing, Copywriting, and even Web Development for the really adventurous!
To be honest we can’t tell you which business consulting services would be a “best fit” for your particular business until we know a little bit about what it is exactly, that you do.
How do I apply for the PBD business consulting services?
That’s a great question! (We thought you’d never ask!)
Just follow this link and fill out our short questionnaire. It shouldn’t take more than a minute or two of your time.
We want to know some of the basics of your business and your ability to grow.
Once you submit the survey, our team will review and get back to you if we think you are a good fit!
That may sound harsh, but we don’t want to waste your time. If we take a look at your business and decide we’re not a good fit, we’ll let you know. We’re here to help you, even if that means pointing you in another direction.
However, if we do think you are a good fit for our small business consulting services, one of our team will contact you to set up a time to go over in more detail, how we can work together!
What’s stopping you?
You got to this page because you weren’t looking to pay an agency, or maybe you wanted to learn the skills we use to help our clients grow for yourself!?
Well now’s the time to take action and place the first step towards your marketing independence.
We look forward to working with you soon!
