I’ve taken a lot of professionals up on their offers of free consultations. Some have been helpful, but some were a waste of time.
The ones that are a waste of time are usually worthless because the company uses them as a way to trick you into signing up to listen to a sales pitch. Don’t let that happen to you. Here’s how to take full advantage of a free marketing consultation.
Three Steps to Get the Most Out of a Free Consultation
There are three easy steps you can take to get the maximum value out of a free consultation. Here’s what you need to do to make sure your free marketing consultation call isn’t a waste of time.
Make Sure It’s Actually a Consultation Call
First, you’ll want to make sure the call is designed to help you. Some companies will use “consultation” calls as a way to determine whether or not you’re a good fit for their company or to convince you to do business with them.
That’s OK within reason, but I’ve been on some calls where I received absolutely no value. It was a waste of my time, and it was a waste of their time too because it made me decide not to work with those companies.
If you schedule a consultation call with me, we’ll spend the whole time addressing your questions and concerns and I’ll give you as many actionable tips as I can. That way, you’ll know whether or not you want to work with me in the future. If you don’t, at least you’ll have gotten some value out of the call.
Prepare for Your Free Marketing Consultation
To get the most out of a free marketing consultation, come prepared. Know what you hope to get out of the call. Are you looking for advice on a problem? Strategic direction? Figure that out beforehand so that you can dive right in.
Also, make sure you have all the relevant information that I’ll need to make recommendations. If you don’t know what channels you’re currently using, how you’re using them, etc., then find out or make sure that person is on the call.
After that, it’s up to you to take action. Sure, it’s a free call, but that doesn’t mean it’s not valuable. If you’ll take the time to follow through on the things we talk about, you’ll reach your goals much faster.
