Consulting - The Best Way To Learn New Tactics And Strategies

May 27, 2008
Consulting is a booming business today. If you know anything about an industry and you are good at making things happen within that industry, then you could be a consultant and teach others how to do the exact same thing.

People hire consultants for a few reasons. First, they hire consultants because they don't want to hire someone new to do a job that they just incorporated into the company. By hiring a consultant you will keep your salary budget in check while loading up more work on other individuals in the company.

Second, they hire consultants because it is so much easier than trying to sift through all the garbage on the internet. Everyone agrees that the internet is a powerful tool, but, they also all agree that there is so much trash and research that has been halfway done that it is easier to bring in a trained professional to teach them everything they know about a certain topic or subject.

Third, they hire consultants because it is cheaper than outsourcing the particular job or service to another company. In the case of SEO, most companies outsource this. Average monthly contracts run about $2,000 - $3,000 per month. If you hire a consultant you will probably be paying him or her $75 -$100 per hour for 6 to 8 hours of their time. Sounds like a much better investment to me.

Fourth, they hire consultants because they can come speak and train a large group of people at one time. You can set up a day where your whole team is free and a consultant can come in and dump their knowledge on every person in the room instead of just one or two people. This seems to help businesses a lot more since many different people got something completely different from the training. Afterward, they all get together and go over everything they learned and re-teach everything all over again solidifying it so they can actually do it.

Fifth, they hire consultants because it is kinda fun. Consultants love their jobs, always being in a new place each day teaching what they love. It is always fun for the people being taught as well.

Consulting can be done over the phone or in person. Either way, you have the ability to learn valuable techniques that you or your company didn't have before the interaction. They are affordable and have a lot to give in terms of knowledge. Whenever you are in need, don't outsource, look to a consultant and have that knowledge for yourself for life.
