AdWords Consultant – Can You Afford the Fees?

Jun 23 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

I am going to show you how you can have a personal AdWords consultant that you can afford. Everybody and their grandmother wants to get into the Google AdWords affiliate business. There are scores of books on the internet that describe how simple it is to “Make Enormous Sums of Money with 15 Minutes of Work Each Day and From Then on Your Business is on Auto-Pilot”. Nothing could be further from the truth! Many people try AdWords affiliate advertising and have one failed campaign after another. They burn a hole in their advertising pockets and give up. What should they do?

One alternative is to contact a professional Google AdWords Consultant. This may be an effective strategy for an existing business that is making a profit but most professional AdWords consultants charge $100 to $250 an hour for a consultation on existing campaigns. To set up a new account prices can range between $1000 to $2500 plus ongoing monthly fees. This can be a good investment in the long run for someone who is more concerned with his or her core business than learning the AdWords business. But if you are interested in learning the AdWords affiliate business this simply won’t due. Some of the consultants will give Pay Per Click coaching but at $100 to $250 an hour the fees are outrageous.

In the brick and mortar world a businessperson can get involved with local organizations of retired businesspersons and get one on one advice. Many of these programs

Phantom Problems for Consultants: Business Problems Only In Your Mind

Jun 22 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Today we are going to talk about phantom problems. These are problems you believe exist, but don’t. I get this a lot from my clients and you may have a similar issue. You believe you have a specific understanding of the challenge your business faces and you want an answer… now. You want a silver bullet o r magic solution that immediately resolves it. If this sounds familiar, let me suggest that what you believe is the problem isn’t the problem at all. Some common examples will help explain what I mean.

I need a better time management solution. You are looking for a calendaring system, list management system, appointment scheduling system, a new app or a new website that will help manage your behavior or time management. The truth is, this is not really what you need.

It’s not about time management… it’s about priorities. Certain things are more important than other things. For example, how important is breathing to you? What is more important to you than breathing? Well then, by definition everything else is second to breathing. Additionally, how important is eating to you? If breathing is first and eating is second, then all the business tasks are third. If we keep thinking this way and take a look at your consulting business, certain tasks are as important as breathing and eating. That means every other task must come after these. Once you set your priorities, it’s easier to figure out where your time should be spent.

It’s not about time management… it’s about clarity. You have to be clear about what is important to your business and what isn’t. That means you have to separate your thoughts, ideas and strategies; look at them individually and figure out which are most important and mean the most to your business. Ask yourself, “Do I truly understand each element of the problem?” If you are not clear on what the issue is, you are doomed to solving the wrong problem over and over.

It’s not about time management… it’s about panic. You create to-do lists that are so long they intimidate you. You see how much you have to do and it creates panic, anxiety, and stress. You have to flip that. You must be able to look at your to-do list and not be intimidated by its length or what’s on it. As you develop the discipline to look at your tasks in a different way, the scary and uncomfortable emotions will subside.

I need cash, now! The second major point that my clients come to me with quite often is “I need cash, now! I need customers, now! I need money!” I suggest to you that it’s not about the money. For example, what will you do between today and the day when the money arrives? Whatever you do, it has to be something healthy. How do you know your new money is going be spent any differently than your previous money? If you know you made a mistake in the past, how do you make better decisions moving forward? You have to think hard about it. Also, how much money do you really need? How many clients and engagements do you really need? Until you are clear about your need, any new money that comes in the business is likely to be spent just as poorly as the old money.

I can’t trust my employees. Another common discussion I get from my clients is, “My employees don’t do good work. This is a very limited belief about your current employees. You may say, “John Brown is a jerk and nobody likes him.” That may be true, but what is also true is that you hired him! Maybe it is time to let him go. If John Brown is that unhealthy to the environment, he doesn’t belong. The same is true for known underperformers. You need to let them go if you can’t train them to be better. The point is, don’t let your business be subject to a mistake that was made from a hiring perspective. You can fix it!

The real issue is your perspective on the problem. You don’t have an issue with your time, money, or employees. It’s your perspective on these things that has you intimidated. For example, you may be too close to the issue. When you stand too close to an issue you are able to see all the minor details, but you can’t get a wide enough perspective make major business decisions. Talk to an expert, consultant, or coach to provide some feedback and be a mirror to you. When you fully embrace the appropriate perspective you can prioritize the issues that really deserve your attention.

These are all examples of phantom problems. These are problems you believe exist, but don’t. If you as a leader can achieve a different perspective on your own company, you can solve problems more quickly. Push for a clear perspective on the root cause and commit to the behaviors that will resolve the issue. Think hard today about what it is that’s keeping your company from growing. Think about what that real problem is, get help if you need it, and grow your business, like you should.

Recruitment Consultant Training: The 1 Thing To Focus on To Accelerate Your Performance In 2013

Jun 21 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

It’s January and time to focus on your recruitment consultant training. The Christmas decorations are down, maybe for some of us our weight is up, and our motivation is generally higher than usual. This then often results in our thoughts turning to what is possible in 2013.

The first few weeks of any new year should be a bumper time for recruitment companies. More people than ever are looking for a career change at the start of a new year. This is when the best candidates start to surface. A quick look on the Google search engine and you will notice that the number of searches for recruitment companies and recruitment agencies double in relation to December.

The extended holiday break especially in the UK fuels people to evaluate their careers and what else might be on offer. As recruiters we all know that the high performers are in demand in any industry, recession or no recession. The challenge is finding them in the first place so that it is your recruitment agency and not someone else’s that places them. Are you and your team ready to make the most of this opportunity? Here is the most important area to focus on with your recruitment consultants to get the year off to an awesome start. Planning! To be accurate sales planning

Sales’ planning is something that needs to be taught to many recruitment consultants no matter how experienced they are. Having a focused plan with a list of key activities is often the difference between success and failure. In the present economy just ‘winging it’ does not work anymore. Make sure your consultants know what to include in a good plan. A corny saying I know and yet hitting the ground running in January will set the trajectory for any recruiter to hit their billings throughout the year. Here are some ideas that you can share with them. They may or may not have the skills to deliver on all of these and this is where your training for recruitment consultants comes in.

First off they need to plan their time around the activities that will give them the best results. For instance past candidates that they have knowledge of need to be contacted. This needs to be scheduled into a daily plan. Consistency is the key here. Any consultant that takes consistent action on this one activity alone will come up with the goods. January is an excellent time to pick up the phone and check where your candidates are at. As I mentioned earlier Christmas is quite a time of reflection for many people. Use this to your advantage. As part of sales planning teach your consultants to think of what they are going to do and importantly how they are going to do it. Each call to a prospective candidate should be thought through. What questions need to be asked? What is important to the candidate? What is their ideal job and with which employer? Do you have anything similar that might just persuade them to go for the interview?

Just taking time on planning this interaction with a candidate will significantly enhance the interaction and likely hood that they will want your recruitment company to place them and not somebody else’s.

Strategic Planning Consulting – Three Reasons it Might Be Right For You

Jun 20 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Strategic planning is used to determine where a company wants to go, how it plans to get there, and how to recognize when the goals have been met. There are many different approaches that can be taken. In some cases a goals-based plan is most helpful, while in other cases there may be more of a need for an issues-based or even scenario-based approach. In many cases, a corporations strategic planners may already have a good idea of what needs to go into the plan. However, in other cases it can be helpful to leverage the assistance of an experienced strategic planning consultant. Here are three reasons why a strategic planning consulting might be right for your company.

Inexperience With Strategic Planning

If this is the first time your organization has conducted a big strategic change, it is likely that some assistance could be helpful. Although you might know the details of your business and goals, a consultant with strategic planning experience will be able to help you develop a workable plan that will help you achieve them. By acting as the facilitator, the consultant will be able to work with your planning team to achieve the best possible results.

Leveraging an Outside Viewpoint

In some cases, the leaders of a corporation may be too close to the issues or too intimately involved with the company to provide an objective outlook. Working with a senior consultant can provide a fresh objective approach to the issues at hand.

Leveling the Playing Field

Working with a consultant can also be helpful when there are many different personal opinions within the company in regards to the proper course of action. Those inside the organization might be hesitant to express their opinions or fully participate in the planning when an inside facilitator is used. By using a consultant as the planning facilitator, everyone on the team can feel free to participate.

How to Select an Information Technology Consultant for your Business

Jun 18 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Choosing the right information technology consultant for your business can be a critical business decision. The computer and network support company you choose directly impacts your productivity, your flexibility, and even your bottom line. Technology plays an integral role in today’s business world. Blackberries, laptops, email and instant messenger have all become tools of the trade when communicating with clients. But what happens when your email goes down? Or when you can’t connect to the internet to collect time-sensitive data for a customer? The benefits of technology can come at a price, and it is times like these when businesses, especially smaller companies, need a reliable IT partner who can reduce downtime. You may think the number one criteria when selecting an information technology consultant should be expertise. Although expertise is definitely a deciding factor, a potential computer and network support company’s customer service approach should be considered closely as well. After all, what good is an expert when you can’t get in touch with him to fix your critical IT issues?

The Difference Between an IT Partner and a Vendor

It may seem like semantics, but there is a real difference between a network support company that signs on to be your IT partner and an information technology consultant that is just another vendor selling applications and services. An IT partner should have a customer service model that aligns with the long-term goals of its clients and is focused on helping to grow clients’ businesses.

Many computer and network support companies’ approach to customer service leaves something to be desired. You call to schedule an on-site visit because your network is having issues, and it is slowing your turn-around time down to a snail’s pace. You get a call back four hours later from an employee that you have never spoken with before. They can come, but it will have to be tomorrow or possibly Monday, because all of their guys are working on a network issue at a major law firm. To these vendors, your company is just another small fish in a sea of bigger clients.

To an information technology consultant that is a true partner, your business, whether large or small, is their business. A network support company that take the partner approach does not take technical issues lightly because they understand that IT can make or break a company. A partner takes the time to get to know the ins and outs of your business from day one. They understand what your company needs, from a technological perspective, to be successful, and they will not only provide that, but also offer advice on how to use technology to grow your business. Overall, this type of information technology consultant provides much more than services – they act as an extension of your business.

Signs of a Dependable Computer and Network Support Company

When searching for the right computer and network support company, you should keep an eye out for some tell-tale signs that will provide insight into whether the partner you are considering is a good fit for your company. First, ask the following questions when researching potential partners:

  • Will my company be assigned one individual who will act as our primary information technology consultant? If the potential computer and network support company says no, then there is a good chance that you will be talking to someone different every time you call in with an issue. This can get tricky because when more than one person is responsible for your account, your requests can slip through the cracks. Also, the blame game will likely occur with this scenario – “I thought Bob said that he was going to call you back.”
  • Can you tell me about your escalation process when dealing with client issues? This is an essential question because some issues are more time-sensitive than others and, if your information technology consultant is unavailable, you need to know what back-up plan measures are in place to expedite resolution of your issues.
  • Will my IT contact be able to break down technical jargon into something I can understand? Most of us are not as technically savvy as our IT consultants – after all, that is why we hired them! There is nothing worse than paying top dollar for technical expertise but not being able to understand a word the expert says. And, some consultants come off as down right egotistical when they fail to notice that you are lost as they are describing your network infrastructure. A good information technology consultant has the technical smarts but knows how to communicate so that even the least technically savvy person in the group can follow.

Use your instincts – you can usually glean a lot from your first conversation with a potential IT and network support company. If your questions seem to stump them or, if they act as if they are hurried, expect more of the same behavior in the future. A network support company whose focus is on partnership will likely play an integral role in achieving your company’s long-term goals. That is why it is essential to treat the research and selection process as if you are hiring on a full-time employee.


There are many factors to consider when searching for the right information technology consultant. The selection process will be unique to a certain extent for each company, but asking key questions about the potential computer and network support company’s service should help single out the best candidates. Most companies will agree that a blend of expertise and a dependable customer service model make for a good IT partner.

Retirees Thrive In Small Business Marketing Consulting

Jun 04 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Stress coming from work pressures is increasingly linked to illnesses like hypertension, heart attack and anxiety disorders among company executives. As you climb up the corporate ladder, the demands of a position can leave you constantly tired and rob you of quality time with your loved ones. This is why more professionals are downshifting to small business marketing consulting where they can still use their skills and experience to earn income at a less frenetic pace.

Some of the common fears retirees face includes insufficient income and reduced intellectual and social stimulation. Engaging in small business marketing consulting will not only give you opportunities to exercise the skills you honed over the years but it will also allow you to earn perhaps even more than what your former employer paid you.

Benefits of small business marketing consulting

Aside from earning continuously as a consultant, you also get to enjoy the following perks of working on your own:

* Create your personal brand: As an independent consultant, you can now market yourself as an expert in your field, something that you were unable to do as an employee where your employer or the company you worked for took most of the credit.

* Work on your terms: You now get to choose what services to offer, for how much, as well as your hours of work. While you still have to work around timelines set by your clients, how you allocate the hours in between due dates is still at your discretion. Consultants are able to reduce work pressure this way.

* Make more time for life: The reduced workload also gives you more time to do things you’ve always wanted to do but never had the time or energy for them. As a consultant, you can work and still have time to tick off some things on your bucket list.

Starting this business is relatively easy using minimal start-up capital, basic office equipment that you may already have at home, segregated workspace at home, minimal Internet skills and some contacts to serve as your first clients. Your biggest asset would be the skills you acquired at work and long years of experience which you can now apply in your clients’ businesses.

While you’ll still need to update some of your techniques to serve your clients’ Internet marketing requirements, these may be learned on the job or with the help of systems developed by Internet marketing experts.

Retirement should not spell the end of the road for you. Transitioning into small business marketing consulting not only provides work continuity but also an opportunity for you to shine.

What Are The Safety Benefits Of High Productivity Vehicles (Hpvs)?

Jun 04 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

If you’re looking for a more efficient and safe way to transport goods, you may want to consider using a high-productivity vehicle (HPV). HPVs are becoming an increasingly popular choice for businesses that need to move large loads quickly and safely.

Unlike traditional heavy vehicles or trucks,Guest Posting HPVs are designed specifically for high productivity applications. They offer many safety benefits that can help keep your team safe while on the job, as soon as you get your truck licence training in Melbourne.

What are HPVs and what are their safety benefits over traditional vehicles?
HPVs are vehicles that are specifically designed for high-productivity applications. They are typically smaller and more manoeuvrable than traditional vehicles, which makes them ideal for transporting goods in tight spaces. HPVs also have a lower centre of gravity, which helps to prevent them from tipping over when travelling on uneven surfaces.

Safety is a top priority for HPV manufacturers, and many of these vehicles come equipped with features that help keep drivers safe while on the job. For example, HPVs often have large windshields that provide drivers with excellent visibility. They also feature powerful brakes and stability control systems that help to keep the vehicle under control during sudden stops or sharp turns.

Overall, HPVs offer many safety benefits over traditional heavy vehicles or trucks. Their smaller size and low centre of gravity make them less likely to tip over, and their powerful brakes and stability control systems help drivers stay in control during even the most challenging driving conditions. When it comes to safety, HPVs are hard to beat!

How do HPVs help to improve safety for drivers and pedestrians alike?
The safety of everyone, whether the driver or other people such as pedestrians, is very important when it comes to this type of vehicle. The design and construction of HPVs means that they are much less likely to tip over, which can be a major safety hazard.

These vehicles offer a much higher level of stability than regular trucks or vans, meaning that they are less likely to cause an accident. They also have a smaller turning radius, which makes them easier to manoeuvre in tight spaces. This can be especially important in urban areas where there is a lot of traffic and pedestrians.

HPVs are also much quieter than traditional vehicles, meaning that pedestrians and other drivers will be less likely to be startled by their arrival. This can help to avoid accidents and injuries.

The costs associated with switching to HPVs vary depending on the method you choose. Buying new vehicles will be the most expensive option, while retrofitting your current fleet is the least expensive. However, it’s important to keep in mind that retrofitting may not be possible for all types of vehicles.

Are there any dangers associated with using HPVs, or are they completely safe for everyone involved?
HPVs are much safer than regular heavy vehicles or trucks. In fact, they are up to 95% safer when it comes to fatalities and injuries. This is because HPVs are designed for specific tasks, such as short-distance deliveries or construction projects. They are not meant for long-distance travel, so there is less of a chance for accidents to occur.

Additionally, HPV drivers receive specialised training that helps them stay safe while operating these vehicles. All drivers must be certified before they can operate an HPV, and they are required to follow all safety guidelines at all times.

They are not only safer for the drivers, but also for other motorists on the road. HPVs are much smaller than regular trucks, so they take up less space on the road. This means that there is less of a chance for accidents to occur when two or more vehicles are travelling down the same street.

Overall, it is clear that high-productivity vehicles offer a number of safety benefits that regular heavy vehicles cannot match. If you are looking for a safer way to transport goods or materials, then an HPV may be the right choice for you. Contact your local dealer today to learn more about these amazing vehicles.

Negative effects of inadequate training for truck drivers

Jun 04 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Getting proper medium-rigid truck training is vital for the safety of everyone on the road. Unfortunately, many truck drivers in Australia do not receive adequate multi-compound training in Melbourne before they are put behind the wheel. This can lead to disastrous consequences.

The number of truck accidents has increased in the past few years.
Accidents related to heavy vehicles,Guest Posting such as trucks, have been on the rise in the past few years. This alarming trend can be partly attributed to inadequate training for truck drivers. When drivers are not properly trained or have not gotten their light rigid licence training in Melbourne, they may not be aware of how to handle their vehicles safely in different situations. This can lead to accidents and even loss of life.

This is why proper training is essential for this type of driver. Trucking companies must ensure that their drivers receive adequate training before being put behind the wheel. This can lead to disastrous consequences.

It is also important for truck drivers to undergo regular refresher courses. This will help them stay up-to-date with the latest changes in the industry and how to handle their vehicles safely.

It is important that truck drivers receive a fair wage for the hard work they do. They should also be given enough time off to rest and relax. By ensuring that truck drivers are treated fairly, we can help keep them safe on the road.

Lack of training can also lead to dangerous driving habits.
When drivers of such vehicles don’t get the right training, or even any training at all, they can develop some very dangerous driving habits. Truck drivers need to know how to handle their vehicles on the road, especially when they are travelling long distances. Without proper training, they may not be aware of the dangers they face while driving, and this can lead to accidents.

It is estimated that around 70% of trucking fatalities are a result of driver error. This is largely due to the fact that many truck drivers have not been given adequate training. By providing truck drivers with quality training, we can help reduce the number of fatalities caused by these accidents.

Truck drivers need more rest breaks to ensure their safety and the safety of others on the road.
In addition to training, these drivers also need to have proper safety procedures in place, including things like more rest breaks and mandatory breaks for meals. All too often, truck drivers are pushed to their limits, and this can lead to disastrous consequences.

It is clear that inadequate training for truck drivers can have serious consequences. It is therefore essential for both trucking companies and the drivers themselves to make sure that they receive proper training before hitting the road. By doing so, we can help reduce the number of accidents.

If you’re looking for a career change and think truck driving might be right for you, make sure you get the necessary training before hitting the road. With the right qualifications under your belt, you will be able to drive with confidence and ensure that your journeys are safe for everyone involved.
