Are You New to the Image Consulting Industry and Don’t Know Where or How to Start a New Business?
Launching a new image consultant career and image consulting business is one of the biggest time commitments and personal investments an individual will undertake in their life. New image consultant business owners wear many hats; and while building your business and reputation, it may become easy to unknowingly let certain details slip through the cracks.
When first starting a company it is useful to have a road map to guide you toward building a successful career as an image consultant. 80% of building an image consulting business relies heavily on how you market and promote yourself and only 20% is about execution of consulting services. Therefore in order to set yourself up for success, it’s important for you to understand the fundaments of building an image consultant business and set goals for yourself to accomplish all these tasks.
The following are steps to help you start a successful image consulting business:
Step 1 – The Business Brand Identity. When you are first starting an image consulting business, you will need a starter business brand identity. This includes business cards, brochures, flyers, and website. I always recommend starting here first because every opportunity you get to meet someone new is an opportunity for you to convert someone into a new client. If you do not have these standard marketing materials, how will anyone have confidence in your abilities?
Step 2 – The Business Plan. Then I recommend working on your business plan. It is very important to have a clear vision of your company and who your target audience is. Writing a business plan from A to Z will help you understand how much money you’d like to make and how to plan accordingly to put the steps into place so that you can make your desired image consultant salary.
Step 3 – The Marketing Plan. A marketing plan will help you define who your target demographic is and what steps you will need to take to reach your target demographic. It will also help you further define which services you intend to offer and enable you to later define your niche as you grow your business as well as help you define your fee structure.
Step 4 – The Sales Pitch. Once you have a better idea of the products and services you intend to offer, you need to sound like an expert. Therefore it is essential that you master your sales pitch to turn every social opportunity into a business opportunity.
Step 5 – Further Establishing Your Credibility by Delivering Your Message to the Press. Building your credibility starts by developing a press kit. Press kits include many things such as professional photos, your biography, and press releases.
