There’s no denying that running a business is hard work. One of the keys to small business success is having a core team of stakeholders; people who you trust; who will give you an honest appraisal of every situation; keep you buoyant when you need a bit of support, and who are invested in ensuring ongoing success.
When you’re setting up and running a small business it’s often the case that YOU are the ‘core team’, responsible for everything from recruitment to financial management, marketing to service delivery. It’s easy to end up feeling like you’re stuck on the hamster wheel and with that comes the potential to lose focus.
Support Services for Small Business Success
We offer bespoke options for small business support. These range from a single half or full day consultation with a follow-up report and recommendations, to ongoing, retained services.
You could benefit from standard services like content creation and social media support where we extrapolate your brand vision, turning your mission into professionally produced and engaging content on an ongoing basis. If you’ve already attempted to maintain your own social media accounts, you’ll know immediately how hard it is to keep feeding that particular machine when you’ve got any number of other plates to keep spinning. Our content bespoke content services can knit together your social media with your website, your text and email marketing, your internal communications to staff and partners, and (if you’ve got a physical location) your in-person presence.
Where we can also offer support is in the less tangible areas. As a small business consultancy we’ve been described in lots of different ways – ‘Fresh Eyes’, ‘A Sounding Board’, ‘A Safe Pair of Hands’, and ‘A Trusted Friend’. We’ve built this area of the business based on requests by people like you, and here’s a flavour of what people like you have said about what we can do.
Small Business Consultancy
Never underestimate the importance of fresh eyes. It’s easy to lose focus, or to let fear narrow your field of vision. Making observations and working with you to convert them into creative business development opportunities is what this is all about.
As a small business owner you’re not lacking in ideas, but when you’re facing internal pressure or resistance to implementing those ideas it’s easy to start questioning yourself and becoming increasingly risk averse. Sometimes you need to hear the voice of reason, other times you might need that extra push to be convinced that something’s worth giving a go. We’ll listen, assess and, when necessary, go out and do some of the research and ground-work associated with getting those ideas off the ground.
We come with a history of having worked with lots of different business, which makes us adept in collaborating with clients to strategise for the shape of the future, predicting trends and managing change. We take note of what’s happening in the economy at large, combining realism with the optimistic belief that anything’s possible, provided you’re prepared to put in the work, and we’re always prepared to go the extra mile to make that happen.
We bring creative problem-solving skills to every scenario and work hard to make things happen. Consulting with you on your business goals, your strategy, your marketing communications plans and the execution of it all.
When you make your decision about who you want to work with it’s likely that it’s going to come down to a few different things – budget, confidence, and, most importantly in our opinion, trust. You can trust Battleplan to do the things we say we’re going to do; to care about your business; and to operate with the utmost integrity and loyalty.
In short, you can rely on us.
