The 3 Biggest Mistakes most consultants & coaches make with marketing


Our Services

We help consultants, coaches and professional service businesses attract and serve their ideal clients using science.

We do this by first and foremost finding out whether we are a good fit to deliver on your objectives via our application form and introductory phone call which you can complete and book via this link.

There are four programs we offer to our clients:

1) 1-on-1 Coaching & Mentoring

This is generally suitable for business owners and startups in micro or small businesses who are looking to find the best ways to get more customers whilst dealing with a limited budget.

If you want to learn how to become the brand expert within your own business, then this is most likely going to be the best option for you.

2) Time to Grow: Brand Transformation (Signature Service 1)

This program is designed specifically for ambitious entrepreneurs and scaling businesses who want to put their best foot forward to become a market leader in their industry or niche.

Businesses and entrepreneurs that will benefit from this signature service have probably already:

  • Been through an accelerator program
  • Worked with a business coach
  • Completed an online learning program or masterclass
  • Develop their MVP or minimum viable offer
  • Started getting sales through the door

The keyword here is: consolidation - bringing it all together.

This process is about taking a deep dive into everything that the entrepreneur and their team has learnt in order to create a roadmap to scale in the most cost effective, time efficient and sustainable way.

3) Time to Fix This: Brand Turnaround (Signature Service 2)

This service is for established businesses at risk of losing market share, failing to acquire customers, dealing with bad clients and maintaining (or losing) revenue year-on-year.

For these businesses there is a sense of sluggishness, inertia, overwhelm, stress and lack of direction.

The keyword here is: innovation - breaking bad habits.

This process is about thinking outside the box, agreeing on what needs to change and piloting new ideas to grow the business. 

To be a part of this program, clients must be ready to draw a line in the sand and be committed to making the change.

4) Done for You Services: Launches, rebrands & campaign management

This is for businesses and organisations with an allocated budget for a specific brand or marketing initiative such as a product launch, event or activity.

After our initial discussion, if we each agree that we are a good fit for one another, then we will put together your proposal outlining your recommended strategy and methodology, action plan, timeline and required resources for us to achieve your outlined objectives.
