LB MARKETING CONSULTING Q&A
Clear answers for your questions
What Size Businesses Do You Work With?
I work with businesses of all sizes, with no limit, but I’d say small to medium-sized businesses mostly, although I have worked with a few large companies as well and from time-to-time. I seem to naturally attract the smaller to medium-sized businesses for the most part, though. I think most business owners prefer working with a marketing consultant than with a large agency for a number of reasons.
Do You Do Free Consultations?
Yes, I offer no-pressure, no-obligation free 30-minute marketing consultations to anyone looking to discuss their business needs or to get some marketing advice. I also offer evening and weekend consultations, since it can be tough for business owners to chat during the day.
Are You a Marketing Agency?
I’m not a marketing agency. I’m an independent marketing consultant. I have work alone, and I prefer it that way. My clients are important to me, the only way I can make sure you get the personal service, and attention you deserve is to provide it myself.
Now, that’s not to say I don’t have support people who provide outside services. For example, I have a few experts I work with on very technical items like website programming, graphic work, photography, and videography, each of whom has a high level of skill in one area of specialization.
What Industries do You Serve?
I serve an extensive range of industries—everything from hospitality, to construction, to retail, healthcare, and many others.
How Long do You Typically Work With a Client?
It varies quite a bit; I’ve had some for years’ and others for months, it really depends on what your particular needs are, but typically I work with most of my clients for a minimum of 6 months. Again, it really depends on what exactly you require from a marketing standpoint. There are also no minimum or maximum amount of hours I require to work with a client; it’s really just about what the client needs.
What areas in Ontario do You Serve?
Quite literally all over Ontario, without limit! Most clients tend to be in the Greater Toronto area, but I’ve worked with businesses as far away as North Bay. Today’s technology, it’s made working with people hundreds of miles away very simple.
Do I Need to Sign a Contract?
No, nothing that formal, but I do have an “Agreement that I sign off on, as well as the client. It’s basically outlining the number of hours in a week or month that the client would like me to work on their projects (minimum/maximum) and for how long the client would like to retain my services initially. Again, it’s important that you, as the client, never get any surprises, just total transparency.
Will You Sign an NDA?
Yes, I actually have my own NDA documentation that I provide to my clients for them to use with me. But if you have your own, we can use whichever one you’re most comfortable with.
