Consultants solve some of the world's most important problems. To have the biggest possible impact, these problems must be solved at scale.
That’s why we envision a world where small consultancies can scale the outcomes they deliver efficiently by avoiding inherent issues with traditional consultancy models. To achieve this, it is vital that consultancies are not dependent on their founders; the solutions they provide are scalable, and they can get traction in their markets fast.
Our mission is to empower consultancies to scale the outcomes they deliver by efficiently solving the problems that many face.
Our ultimate goal is to free up the consultants we work with to solve new problems whilst enabling others to continue implementing solutions that their expertise helped create.
Before we made the fundamental changes to our own consultancy and adopted a productised consultancy model, we were a generalist digital marketing agency. We “specialised” in helping small and medium-sized businesses with anything from high-level strategy and campaign planning, to website builds and advertising management.
As a small team, we were often stretched thin and relied on referrals for most of our work. With so many services to offer and more competitors than we could ever count, we struggled to position ourselves effectively in the marketplace, meaning our own sales and marketing efforts reaped very little rewards.
We thought we had a well-defined market, but the reality was we’d work with almost anyone as long as we were confident we could help them. The business was reliant on Stephen, the founder, for the sale and delivery of every project, without him there was effectively no business. This meant he was always overloaded with work, struggled to delegate it and was often a bottleneck in scaling the company.
We couldn’t replicate the amazing results we delivered for our clients for ourselves.
Although we charged hourly, we often lost money by delivering outside of scope, to keep clients happy.
Our projects relied on the expertise of our owner, so we were always waiting on him.
Junior members of our team could sell and deliver projects as well as the owner.
We could confidently sell outcome-based, fixed price projects profitably.
We began generating high quality leads through our sales and marketing.
With a market we love serving, a great team, strong systems and products that deliver outcomes we’re proud of - we have a business that can scale the impact we make in the world.
We scale our impact by scaling our customers' impact.
