A marketing consultant cannot improve your own service or product. Even if the advertisement is flawless, the quality of your services and products will have the decisive influence on the outcome. However, professional consultant probably won’t accept your project if they think they cannot help you. The evaluation is in our job description.

Finding a professional marketing consultant for hiring can be hard sometimes, at times almost impossible. There are so many people who became ‘experts’ in this area of business over the night, the only way to learn the difference is to ask some questions and demand answers. The questions should be requested directly and understandably.

How to hire the right marketing consultant?

The job of a marketing consultant is to be the eyes, ears, and hands of your company or business. If your business isn’t developing and new clients aren’t coming than the consultant isn’t doing his job, but it’s already too late. Before you spend your money on an unprofessional, you should research a little about the consultant and his previous projects. Here are some questions you could ask:

social-networks-pagesAre your personal social networks and websites successful?

Each marketing consultant has its own website that he uses to attract his clients, just like I do as well as personal social networks pages. The success of these will speak for itself if the consultant is successful at his job then you will be in your business as well. Check Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn as three of the most important social networks, for the consultants business page, and you will get your answer.

Do you know understand my market?

Every professional consultant will put in some effort to research your market, to familiarize with the supply and demand and so on. The understanding of the market can be the result of previous projects and experience in the particular area of business.

Can you tell me the names of your previous clients?

If the answer to this question is yes, and the names are forwarded to you, the marketing consultant is probably the right one. Research the list of names, see if there’s someone familiar, check for their projects and you will see for yourself. The so-called marketing consultants who won’t give you this information probably won’t be the right one for you. If they cannot provide the information of the previous project from your area of business at least, they probably aren’t successful, or they didn’t have enough clients.

Everything a marketing consultant should have

Being a marketing consultant isn’t as easy as it might sound, especially because you chose to do everything by yourself rather than working for a company with a team of experts around you. Therefore, every marketing consultant automatically takes all the responsibility for himself. Every research, every project, every little task rests with an individuals’ qualities, knowledge, experience and creativity than any other employee of the Marketing company.

Corporate or Individual work

marketing-consultant-teamMost of my classmates at the college are in the corporate business, working for the big title companies with stable positions and regular monthly payments, and for some, that is a dream come true. I, on the other hand, am not a team player and I couldn’t say it is because I’m weird or I like to work a lot. It is simply because I am confident in my abilities and knowledge and I don’t want to let others do my job.  Each project is unique and it completely in my hands from the beginning, the first research of current audiences, the first strategies to the final advertisement.

Experience

It wasn’t always like that, and I wasn’t always an independent marketing consultant working on his own. I, like the most of my colleagues, started at the Marketing company which is the origin of my experience. Of course, you cannot just finish the school and start doing the consulting for a living, or you could, but you surely wouldn’t be a successful and professional consultant. The experience is what counts when we’re talking about the expertise of any professional, not only marketing experts.

experience

The main difference, the one that drove me to become an independent consultant, is the variety of projects you can work on and the people you can meet, connections you can make. I collaborated with various businesspersons, from the largest corporate business to the small village entrepreneurs and their services. The experience I acquired during my time incorporation and my independent business is crucial when it comes to the quality of my work.
