Business Boost programme

Business Boost is a 6-week tailored support programme that helps solo professionals and service provider SMEs to develop a business growth action plan. This can be undertaken onsite or remotely or a bit of both.

We take into account where your business is right now, where you want it to be in 1-2 years and help you identify strategic marketing and process improvements to get you there.

We review your business objectives, current & planned products and services, marketing collateral (print, PR and digital, including your website if you have one) and sales processes, and evaluate areas that can impact your business growth the most.

Enrolment into Business Boost is by application only, because we only work with 4 businesses a month and want to be sure it’s a good fit for both of us. The support we provide is high touch and insightful, and we keep our fee low as we know a lot of our Boost clients will want to continue to work with us to implement the solutions we identify for your business growth.

Please opt in below to express your interest and we will contact you within 2 working days to arrange a short consult (by phone, zoom or face-to-face as appropriate) when you can tell us a little bit more about you, your business goals, and current issues you’re facing.

Then if it looks like you’re a fit, we will let you know a bit more about the programme and you can ask any questions you need to make a decision. That way we can both consider if it’s this kind of support and timing is right for you.

How the programme works

The 6-week Boost programme helps solo professionals and service provider SMEs to develop a business growth action plan that takes into account where your business is right now, where you want it to be in 1-2 years and what will be involved in getting there.

The programme has three phases:

Week 1 – 2: First off is fact-finding and consultation, working directly with you as the business owner/manager (and key staff) to explore your business vision, current issues / needs, capability of your people & processes and what’s likely holding your business back.

Weeks 3 – 4: The second phase involves us analysing these findings, reviewing your website, sales and marketing processes and identifying areas of strength, areas for improvement and the critical steps you need to take to achieve your next phase of growth.

Weeks 5 – 6: In the third phase, we discuss these findings with you & other key team members, consider the desired pace of change & support requirements, and help you put together a proposed action plan.

The programme will involve time and a small fee – it’s not for everyone and anyone.

Our assistance is very bespoke, identifying the key priority areas for development within your business. We can offer a further package of support to help you implement the solutions we recommend for your business, such as digital integration, new or revised product offers, website and sales process improvements.

Solutions are tailored to your business growth objectives and your willingness to commit to the work we do together. We’ll only invite you into the programme if we truly believe we can achieve tangible benefits for your business, so we do need to ask what may seem probing questions about your vision and current challenges as part of our enrolment process.
