Strategy | Action | Reports
We give you a business strategy with three goals in mind. More clients, more time and more income.
We create strategies that focus on the clients who give you joy to work with and generate money for your company. - because if we think about it/ that is what we all want in our business.
Then we help you apply that strategy across your whole business. We get you to your most profitable customers in the right place, with the right message at the right time.
A marketing strategy is more than just advertising
Our planning process starts with getting a full understanding of your current situation, the market, and your competitor's activity.
We review your business objectives in order to make sure your marketing goals are firmly aligned.
We then audit your existing activity before recommending a strategy that uses only the right channels to move your customers down the purchase path, so that you get the biggest 'bang for buck'.
Business Planning and Strategies
Knowing where to go in your business, and planning for it can be one of the hardest chores ahead. I know that when I started my business I thought it was a case of "fake it - until you make it". Certainly not the smartest way to proceed in business but over the years I have learned that I never had to fake it - I just had to learn to trust my skills and instinct and go for it!
I have surrounded myself with amazing people and built strong networks. This allows me to recommend the right people for each task and goal that we have in business.
I now offer a range of products to help with creating business and marketing strategies. The first step is a Road Map planning session in which we look at all the different facets of the business to see where the blockages are and then iron out those kinks to let the business flow!
Take the first Step!
Business strategy is an outline of the actions and decisions a company plans to take to reach its goals and objectives. Our unique RoadMap sessions build your business plan no matter where you are in your business journey. That is why we love the term RoadMap. We are creating a simple map for you to follow to achieve your goals.
These sessions are ideal for anyone who is:
- Setting up your business from scratch
- Fine-tuning your existing business
- Getting clear on where your business is heading
- How to implement your business strategy
- How to get your customers to connect with your business
Move onto the next step
Once the first step has been taken and there is a plan in place then the Grow Orange assesses what are the next steps required.
- Branding and Design
- Website support
- Financial Planning
- Reporting and Monitoring
- Monthly Coaching and Support
- Digital Marketing Support
Up and Running
Now that your business is up and running, the business support doesn't need to stop there. We are here for you. As you tick off one goal it is then time to look at the next goal.
- We can continue to work with you to continue to set your goals and identify what you need to focus on most in your business to achieve the results you want, and then
- breaking it down into simple and easy-to-follow steps so you can remove the distractions and get to where you want to be, sooner.
Road Map for your Business
Getting your business up and running
I totally get what it is like to get a new business (or and existing business) fine tuned and ready to hit the road running. There are many corners to navigate and just when you think you are on the open road there can be potholes.
Enough with the roadmap analogies - I could make those comparisons all day. When creating a marketing and business plan there is often so much to think about and do, and just to map it all out can feel a bit daunting.
“If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.” – Steve Jobs (yes this is true, but use what I have learnt over the past 10 years to take a bit of a short cut)
The Road Map
Book your 1 hour session with me, and based on what we chat about I will then create a plan for you to take away and build your business. Don't worry I won't abandon you - after the roadmap is done we can have refresher chats along the way so we can help you tick off all of the tasks that ensure that your business runs smoothly.
Want a new website - I have some great options no matter what your budget
Need a full marketing strategy, I work with some amazing designers that just get it!
Want to know how much to charge, let have a chat and then if you are still stuck I have bookkeepers and financial planners in my network that I can introduce you to.
Where do you want your business to go?
The Roadmap session ensures that you are working towards your business goals and you can make time to fit time with your family, build your business and love getting out of bed in the morning to jump into your work day!
“There’s no shortage of remarkable ideas, what’s missing is the will to execute them.” – Seth Godin
What to expect with your business strategy session!
We want to ensure that your Road Map and planning sessions are productive and of value to you. Prior to our Zoom meeting (or Face to Face Meeting) you will receive some questions. This gives us an ideas on where you business is currently at, and what goals you are wanting to establish in your Road Map Businesses planning session. It's OK if you have no idea - we can work through this together.
Is 1 Hour long enough
We generally find that 1 hour is plenty of time to discuss your business and where you want to head in the future. We also spend time doing independent research - and writing up a final report. It might appear to you that we have only spent 1 hour - but in truth by the time the report has been completed we can easily spend another 1 - 2 hours fact finding.
Can I book another session
Absolutely, after the roadmap session if you want to drill down deeper then another session can be great. Especially if you want to look at another facet of your business.
Perhaps you book another session 4 - 6 weeks after we do the road map and we can assess what is working and what needs tweaking and then set up another plan for the next time period.
Are the sessions recorded?
This is optional - please let me know if you want me to record them
What if I can't make the appointment time?
You can reschedule up to 24 hours in advance. If you are a no-show and I have not been able to fill in that time slot then alas there may not be a refund. - but always discuss options
Can I have email support between sessions
Sure thing - I love hearing how your travels along the road are going? I am always happy to answer any quick questions - if I feel that your questions needs some major thought, and more of plan then there might be additional charges. I will notify you if this is going to be the case.
Do I have to own a business to have a road map?
No, absolutely not! We also work with new ideas and love brainstorming possibilities
