What Do Small Business Consultants Do?

Business consultants are experts outside your business that you hire to solve internal business issues. The right consultant is a great source of specialized knowledge and has the right skills, knowledge, and experience to improve your business’ condition.

Compared to your employees, we work on our own schedules, may work for several clients, and can be hired on a project or contract basis. And depending on the firm, we may work as a freelancer or have our own team, which usually consists of two analysts and a project manager.

We can suggest ways on how to grow your business, sales and marketing development, and even help in executing them. Here’s a short breakdown of how a small business consulting process looks like:

Pre-Consulting Period

Before starting our business, this is the part where we set out the terms and conditions with you. This is to make sure that you fully understand the agreement.

Consulting Period

This phase generally consists of three parts: discovery (40%,) research (40%,) and presentation of recommendations (20%.) We give out all data during the presentation, which usually marks the end of the project.

Post-Consulting Period

We can give you two options. First, you can take our suggestions and apply them on your own. But if you feel like you still need our help, you can extend our contract.

Why Would You Need a Small Business Consulting Team?

Working with us is an effective way to update the skills and knowledge of your employees. Plus, we also incorporate fresh and new perspectives that your business can implement.

Here are the most common reasons clients turn to us for help:

To Help Identify the Problem/s

Sometimes, businesses may already be facing “symptoms” that lead to their low performance. These can include cash flow issues, a decrease in sales, or other internal management issues they may not know of. Our job is to observe your day-to-day operations and to perform some tests and research to find out the root cause of the problem.

To Find a Solution/s

Maybe you have a goal that you can’t achieve because of some skills gap or simply because it’s not within your business’ strengths. We as a small business consulting firm can help fill that gap to save you time and money and eventually, achieve a better result.

To Optimize

Let’s say your business has grown faster than expected. You know that there are a lot of things to learn but the problem is, you don’t know where to start. Our job as a business consultant is to come in and bring new perspectives, assess some or all areas of your business, and evaluate the processes and procedures to improve your productivity.

Where Can You Find Small Business Consultants?

Finding a consultant is probably the easiest part. You can always make a quick search online or ask family and friends if there are any small business consulting firms they recommend.

However, finding a good business consultant is the hard part. While there’s nothing wrong with reading and trusting online reviews, we highly recommend having an actual meeting with the consultant you choose—whether it’s in person or via a video call. Face-to-face interactions will give you a better “feel” if the feelings are mutual.

Is your consultant excited to work with you as you are to work with them? Does your consultant give out a positive and optimistic vibe? If you feel the exact opposite, you’re better off looking for another business consultant.
