Business Consulting Buzz recently surveyed 10,000 independent consultants, asking them how they market their consulting services. Interesting, insightful questions include:
- Which marketing channels have made you the most money?
- What is your annual income?
- How much do you spend on marketing?
- What is the average value of a new project?
- What is the main reason you became an independent consultant?
See the infographic below for the survey results.
Independent consultants often compete with large consulting firms. In such a case, one major advantage large firms have is the collective business expertise and experience of thousands of consultants. This knowledge often takes the form of business documents, which have been saved in the firm’s internal knowledge management repository.
Flevy evens the playing field. More and more independent consultants and boutique consultancies are downloading quality business documents from Flevy, which include the likes of business strategy frameworks, operations/transformation frameworks, PowerPoint templates, financial models, and more. Here are Flevy’s most popular business documents.
Similarly, many boutique firms and independent consultants are uploading their documents to Flevy, as a way to supplement their incomes. Flevy provides a fairly easy way to monetize otherwise idle documents, transforming these documents into passive income streams.
