The Two Things You Must Know to Rapidly Grow Your Consulting Business

There’s a video below, so make sure you scroll down to watch.

Today marks a pretty unbelievable milestone in Location 180 history – this is our 400th post.

That’s a lot of posts, and if you’d have told me I’d be here on the day I started what was then simply known as “Sean Ogle” I’d have said you were crazy.

It’s been quite the adventure, and the simple fact is that if I didn’t have some help along the way, coupled with a little bit of luck, I’d probably still be slaving away at my day job building someone else’s business.

Today I wanted to do something fun, because while I’ve talked about the huge impact that Chris, Dan and Ryan have had on my life – there’s one very important person that I haven’t talked about.

His name is Nick Reese, and you should know him.

I met Nick in March of 2011 at SXSW – we hit it off quickly, and not long after that I found myself crashing with him in New York City for a week. It was during this time I’d announced I’d be creating Location Rebel, but I was still working through what the content would actually entail.

You may be surprised to know that originally, it was quite a bit different from what it is today.

A big reason for that is because of Nick.

You see, by the age of 25 he’d already helped build a 7 figure business online.  He’s the best strategic thinker I know. It doesn’t matter if you’re selling real estate, insurance, or online products – he can help you.

On my last day in New York, we sat down for what I thought would be a quick little review session of where I was at.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.

What ensued was a full day complete tear down and build up of the core of Location Rebel. While there was really good stuff in there, he helped fill it out a bit and make it great stuff. 

This community has made well into 6 figures and has helped 100s of people build businesses and take their lives into their own hands (more of these stories to come) – and Nick is a big part for that.

I’ve been wanting to get him out of the shadows for awhile because he has so much value to offer people. So you can imagine my delight when he told me he was starting to take his new blog more seriously.

Today I’d like to share a quick video we recorded where he talks about how to blow up your consulting business in just a few simple steps.  If you’re doing any kind of consulting or client work online, this will help bring some clarity to how you can make more money and build your reputation at the same time.

Here are a few of the highlights:

  • The only 3 ways you can grow your consulting business
  • Why scalability and streamlined are two words that are much more important than you think
  • How to use a simple survey to increase sales by 300%

Nick has also put together a little bonus for Location 180 readers just for checking out his stuff.  No pitch, nothing to sell, just one little tip that I think you’re going to find extremely valuable. Check it out here.

This was really cool guys – I’ve been raising prices consistently but I’m about ready for a serious hike to focus on getting better clients; plus I should have some passive income kicking in soon with my first product launch. Thanks for the tips, I’m reading the articles on Nick’s site now.

Even though I am not interested in having a ‘Consulting Business’, there is still great advice here that can be applied to different businesses.

Technically I’m a coach, but the client acquisition process is definitely the same.

I struggled with all of this for awhile, until recently discovering the magic of relationships and referrals.

Never thought about directly asking my clients what benefit they are getting from my coaching. Genius stuff.

Thanks for sharing this man.

Hey Sean and Nick,
congrats to your 400th post! This is awesome, I can’t wait to read the next 400 posts ;-)

You’re really hitting the nail on the head with this post. It’s something I see all time happening in my environment. People are just selling their services either to cheap or to the wrong people.

I’m excited to see our all growth over the next 400 posts!

Best regards,
Jan

I love the tip about asking for one point of contact within a larger company. I can’t imagine how much time it saves not having to explain the same thing to 20 different people, then justify it to 20 different people, etc, etc. Thanks!

Thanks so much for sharing – great information! Every freelancer should watch this video!

The price conversation was always a very uncomfortable one for me, until the day I realized that if people want the high quality services I provide and the results I get them, then it shouldn’t matter. What a dynamic change that made in my business! Not only do I know have more clients, I was able to raise my rates without any resistance.
