If you’re feeling like your business could use a push in the right direction, Cloud Friday’s business advisory services may be just what you need. Our partnership with GrowthWheel means you’ll get personalized coaching to help your business thrive.
Why Every Business Needs Business Advisory Services
You might be wondering whether or not you need business advisory services. The short answer is almost always “yes”.
Maybe you’re a solo entrepreneur with a great idea and are unsure of how to implement it. Or maybe you’re an established business owner who needs to find time to focus on growth.
As a business owner, it’s easy to get stuck in the day-to-day operation of your business. There are so many tasks you’re responsible for just to keep your business and maintain its current client base.
With a busy schedule such as yours, who has time to think about growing their business? Yet, you probably know that growing your business is a vital part of business success.
Cloud Friday’s owner, advisor and accountant, Sonya Tapley, says “A good business advisor acts as a coach and consultant. They pull you out of the forest so you can get a bird’s eye view of what your business needs to do in order to grow.”
Small business advisors providing an outside perspective and an insider’s understanding.
We have a unique perspective as accountants and small business owners ourselves, and an amazing toolbox at our disposal: the GrowthWheel methodology.
We are Certified GrowthWheel Small Business Advisors for one simple reason: It works.
GrowthWheel helps us truly support your vision and goals while providing an intuitive and impressive cloud-based planning and decision-making technology.
The goal? Give you the tools you need to make decisions and take action that will help you grow your business.
GrowthWheel uses a step-by-step approach to help businesses grow, analyzing and reassessing along the way. Each step analyzes a very specific sector of your business, such as:
- Sales and service
- Communication and public relations
- Production and delivery
- Business processes
GrowthWheel was designed around the observation that all businesses have four lasting challenges in common: their business concept, organization, client relations and operations.
What Exactly Is GrowthWheel?
It’s a visual communication plan centered on the four main challenges every business faces, regardless of whether they are a sole proprietor or have thousands of employees:
- Creating an attractive business concept, product, service, or technology.
- Establishing a strong organization by creating alignment between business partners, staff, suppliers, and/or vendors.
- Building lasting customer relationships from new client acquisition, through growth, and into maintenance.
- Maintaining profitable operations by managing cash flow, productivity, logistics, and operations.
“The way to grow a company is to determine which decisions to make and which actions to take.” ~ David Madie, Founder and CEO of GrowthWheel International Inc.
The Business Concept
The Business Concept toolbox helps you understand your business idea and design the right product or service portfolio for that idea. It also helps you find the right customer segment for your product or service portfolio.
You’ll learn how to use the right revenue model for your business, and use it in a way that ensures you’ll maintain a strong market position.
A Strong Organization
GrowthWheel’s Organization toolbox helps you refine your ownership and board talents so they have the tools they need to excel at business growth. In addition, this part of the service helps you recruit and develop the right kind of employees for your company.
Support continues by helping you identify which tasks are better handled by outsourcing, and how to find the right outsourcing partner. Then we’ll help you discover the best partnerships with the suppliers and contractors you need.
For full-circle completion, we’ll provide you with keys you need to develop the right legal framework for working together with those suppliers and contractors.
Lasting Customer Relations
Lasting client and customer relations are another key component to your company’s success. We’ll help you learn how to network in a way that will help ensure you’re connecting with the right clients for your business.
In addition, we’ll partner with you to develop a successful marketing plan and an effective sales process. You’ll learn all about successful branding, and we’ll help you create a plan for how to define and promote your brand.
And we’ll assist you as you discover and build the right connections and processes for successful public relations and communications, both for existing clients and for potential new clients.
Operations is another key part of your business. We’ll help you maximize profitability in this area. Using GrowthWheel’s unique and comprehensive process, we’ll help ensure the right financial practices are in place for maximizing profitability.
Along with that, we’ll help you create a plan that ensures there is enough cash flow for profitable investments to be made. You’ll get assistance in forming the best production and delivery systems, more effective IT systems, and help with refining every aspect of your operations process.
Full Service Support From Beginning To End
In order to help your business make the most out of our services, we’ll hold one-on-one sessions with your company’s executives. This will help ensure we have all of the information we need to help your business excel.
You’ll get consistent support with accountability calls to provide maximum accessibility for your team, answering any questions you or they have and helping you refine processes as needed.
And we’ll stay on top of your growth development with continuous high-level assessment of all areas of your business in order to help you develop and carry out the right growth strategy.
If you choose, you can also schedule a 10-day GrowthWheel workshop for your team. This workshop will run at a location you select, and will be held in the mornings for 10 straight business days. That way you have the afternoons free to manage your business.
The GrowthWheel workshop is a training program that is personalized for your business. We’ll help with your company’s overall performance and success across the entire spectrum of your company.
