Hello all, I didn't know in which category to post, if I am wrong don't hesitate to tell me. I am a consultant in project management with 7+ years of experience in international projects/environment (on site / remote, in economic development and civil works). I work for a firm that invoice a lot for my work but pays me peanuts, as the current project is finishing, I want to say "goodbye" and to start my own business as a remote project manager. I defined my targets: - Companies which are growing from ~3-10 employees to a larger staff - Companies which are moving from taking on a handful of large projects a year to several larger, more complex projects a year - Companies which are looking to add or restructure services that they offer - Companies which are starting a new project (new services, new product, to open a company abroad, to construct new head quarters, etc.) - Companies which are struggled to find a process, system, and/or software that fit the company?s project needs If I could define it in one sentence, my targets are companies that are expanding/evolving from "organized chaos" and are in need for a solid business process. I will sell two services: To manage projects from start to finish (or anywhere between) To help company owners to create, solidify, or fix their internal project processes. How I work: As if I am onsite, the only difference is that I use skype for meetings, and online project management tools. Marketing plan and questions: I never did offline marketing, so I think that it would be a good idea to hire a good salesman to help me for offline marketing. I will open a linkedin page in order to promote my services and to identify/contact key persons directly. Do you think that it worth it to put a lot of money in a website in order to rank it in first page on google ? Any ideas ? Thanks for your help!
