Action based Consulting

Veteran Owned Strategic Business Consulting Firm

ABC as the name denotes provides fast and effective solutions to business problems. The core of any business is profit generation, so in the interest of generating profit, the first question we ask is: how can we quickly boost sales? Every other organizational issue is secondary to, and can be solved with sales. As the founder of multiple successful businesses, and the marketer of hundreds, ABC’s founder Nathan firmly believes that proper marketing is the basis for strong sales, and a sustainable, growing business. We address issues with product, people, and process only in order to maximize the effect of the real growth driver: Promotion. The statement in the previous sentence seems simple, but most consulting services spend an extraordinary amount of time focusing on the first three items before they every get to the point of generating revenue – if they ever make it that far.

who needs action based consulting?

Action-based consulting specializes in working with organizations like manufacturers, IT firms, business to business service companies, and other organizations who have achieved enough success to establish that they have something good, but perhaps have stagnant or slow growth. We can analyze and fix many causes of lack of profitability, but 90% of the time, the biggest issue is sales related. If you have great sales, you can hire who you need, optimize your process, and refine client communications. If you don’t have sales, then you have no cashflow to address any of those other issues.

Organizations With an In-house
Marketing Team or Inside Sales Team

I’ve spent years developing marketing and sales teams, and even more years personally performing these functions. With the right support these internal teams or individuals can become everything you intended them to be. The fact of the matter is that most of the time these internal teams lack the direction or expertise they need to be truly effective. ABC can change all of that and in doing so, change the course of your business. I will equip your staff with easy tools they can implement to be successful now, a plan to grow even better in the future, and oversight or support to measure results.

Economic Development Consulting for State Governments and Municipalities

Economic development means increasing profitability of an economy. Economic development can be understood by reducing it to its individual parts – businesses.  In order to develop an economy from a top down approach, a government’s greatest contribution would be to find ways to increase the profitability of the individual units of the economy. Consider the millions of dollars municipalities spend on elaborate economic development plans, and the fact that these plans outline complex “redevelopment” actions that take years to implement, assuming they ever do. These plans often include massive infrastructure projects that if completed, would never achieve ROI, incentives for businesses to move in (which almost never works and certainly doesn’t produce ROI), and other illogical “ecosystem” changes. Let’s give the taxpayers something real. Let’s use the fundamentals of a free market system to our advantage. ABC consulting can create a simple achievable plan in 30 days, implement it in 90, and measurably increase GDP in a year. Let us show you how:

The best part about this upside-down approach is that it produces bottom line impact far faster and more cost effectively than traditional consulting.
