How to Become a Good Independent Consultant
A Consultant is a professional who can help companies identify their problem areas and discover the new opportunities that are available to them, so a Consultant is part of the elements that contribute to the growth of the company.
To be a Consultant requires a lot of knowledge and a firm commitment.
From Funway Resort Residencia Universitaria we want to show you some aspects that should be considered before starting a consulting business.
There are several reasons why a professional decides to become a Consultant.
Being independent, making more money, working less time, or at least having a little more flexibility (and not having to send a memo to the Pope to take you half a day to go to the doctor) are just some of them.
But honestly there is another reason for “force majeure” that many professionals have decided to go down that road: they no longer value their experience in the company in which they currently perform.
On the basis of this forced situation, or in anticipation of it, many contributors are asked to make a more strategic decision and not to seek a job in another company but to open their own business.
Especially when you have a long career, a lot of experience in the field or provide certain types of services, this idea becomes a real opportunity not only to become independent and start your own project, but also many times to cover needs in the market that are neglected by large companies.
Aspects to consider
Here’s the main key, then: what do you do to start a professional consulting business based on your experience and your career? Here are 3 top strategies to consider:
Strategy # 1 – Choose a niche market in which to specialize
The first step is always an important but often overlooked decision. But here is where the greatest specialization that an entrepreneur can offer, and it will become a competitive advantage over what big companies may be offering
Strategy # 2 – Find an urgent and important need to solve in your niche market
This step is essential for the business to exist and be profitable. If you offer a fantastic service but it is not what your client or market needs, no one is going to buy you, and therefore you do not have a business.
Strategy # 3 – Design a solution that is a perfect match with your niche
The importance of this step is to forget the generic solutions and personalize as much as possible the services, based on what you have achieved in step # 1 (choosing and knowing your niche market) and step # 2 (knowing your need more important).
This is the first step you should take if you are really considering becoming an advisor / consultant. Define these three keys to the “cornerstone” of your business to become independent and succeed with your professional business.
