I offer Business Development Services, either on a project basis or on a long term retainer.
Our relationship starts with a meeting, where we chat and get to know each other, and where I probe to see how your business works today. From there, we'll focus on new ideas, enhancements or changes to your strategy.
Maybe it starts as simply as defining and documenting your strategy, along with the underlying assumptions, enabling you to have a business road-map to refer back to and tweak over time. It is surprising how many companies don't have a documented roadmap. It can lead to confusion and frustration among your teams. There is always a new opportunity to consider and one of the best ways to keep driving in a positive direction, is to have a roadmap, referring to it with each major opportunity. It's OK to stray - but know when you are doing it and know the justification for it.
We'll define the greatest area of return, or the areas of growth you never seem to get to...
I can help you focus and excel in these areas:
- Do you focus on your website as through it were your primary marketing tool? It is & You should
- Are you optimizing your site for traffic generation and Google Rankings
- Is your Website a living tool, delivering value to return visitors?
- How do you monitor it's effectiveness?
- How do you drive traffic to it?
- Marketing Activities
- What is your Marketing philosophy - Do you have the right focus? How much time do you spend in each area?
- Advertising - Web and Print
- Web Design and Management
- Google Adword Selection and Management
- Public Relations
- Blogging and Networking
- Editorials and Articles
- Awards and Partnerships
- Industry Events
- Sales and Business Development
- Define the Channel to Market
- Direct Sales
- Channels - Representatives or Distributors
- Web Based Sales
- Managing the mix of "All of the above"
It takes an understanding of the marketplace as a whole, a strong knowledge of your business, and the ability to communicate and interact, to help realize the best business model, based on your technologies, your position in the market and the strength of your competition. I will help you work through all these areas and can help you research the avenues to success.
Project by project or as a valued member of your team
Our activities can start with a project and transition to a retainer. Either way, you can feel comfortable that I will treat you and your company with the professionalism and ethics you demand. Our first meeting will include a Nondisclosure agreement. I have worked with dozens of companies in the automation marketplace and I understand, respect and fully endorse your need for confidentiality.
