Small Business Small business consulting involves working with clients on strategy, planning and problem solving, and helps clients develop business skills and knowledge. These topics range from designing a business model or marketing plan, to determining which marketing techniques to use and how to apply them. Additionally, some small businesses may outsource their IT or Marketing departments, affording them a specialist in the field while still being good stewards of their finite resources.
Information Technology Information Technology (IT) requires a deep knowledge of both business and information technology. The best use of IT is to meet specific business needs by conducting a business needs assessment and developing an information systems solution that meets the organization’s objectives. The emphasis is to manage and improve business processes.
Marketing Marketing focuses on brand management, including competitive positioning, and the impact that marketing mix and resource allocation have on sales and profits. As products and services become more difficult to differentiate, branding cultivates a strong, trusted image and can help build a larger, more loyal customer base. The most effective strategic marketers use deep customer insight to drive segmentation, targeting, positioning and offering development. This ensures that marketing plan development is grounded in marketplace realities to best meet customer needs.
Customer Relationship Management Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is a process companies use to understand their customer groups and respond quickly—and at times, instantly—to shifting customer desires. CRM technology allows firms to collect and manage large amounts of customer data and then carry out strategies based on that information. CRM data also provide companies with important new insights into customers’ needs and behaviors, allowing them to tailor products to targeted customer segments.
Social Media Social Media individuals and organizations to interact with their employees, friends, customers and partners electronically across a range of devices. Social Media is rapidly changing and is used for four primary purposes: communication (driving awareness, sharing content and providing customer service), commerce (selling products directly and getting referrals), collaboration (sharing ideas and getting feedback) and communities (fostering connection with the company and within customer and employee groups).
