Net result =  You Profit More!

What is the SCG Virtual Business Model?

We’ve partnered over the years with notable experts in areas as diverse as website generation and copyrighting to on-site Lean Manufacturing Project Managers.  In most cases we make intelligent use of these people’s talents on a contract basis and leverage them for our clients.  The virtual model is further exploited because many of the services we provide do NOT have to be performed on-site.  We make the best use of today’s technology to be able to “meet” clients over the phone, video-conference, and web meetings to minimize the need for them to absorb travel reimbursement costs except where on-site talent is a requirement of the job or requested.

Our virtual business model can be yours too, filling in for needed projects and objectives to help grow sustainable business that in the past were either ignored due to cost or lack of time to find resources, or were “overfilled” by recruiting and bringing on full-time talent that subsequently searched for a place to add organizational value (sometimes unsuccessfully).  Smart Company Growth can be your virtual arm for these valuable but short term initiatives.

Business Growth

What is Business Development?

Any service or activity that leads to more Sales.  Most often people associate Business Development with something new–new sales channels, new markets, new products.  From our perspective, it can be new revenues from existing customers for your business as well.  Smart Company Growth services are designed to provide a Competitive Advantage for firms who otherwise look a lot alike, with a specialty in emerging technology companies.  This also applies in large majority to professional service firms: lawyers, financial advisors, accountants, consultants and the like, whose value proposition is not a hard product but their intellectual firepower and relationship.

What kind of services do you offer to provide a Competitive Advantage for my firm?

This is our primary value proposition.  Competitive Advantage services are strategies to expand your online reach via our SmartVu Executive Video Interviews , LinkedIn Optimization and Content Generation services, all geared toward attracting new business.

Sales Management, Go To Market, Sales Process, and Outsourcing services are designed to help emerging technology firms grow and become more productive, accountable, and profitable on the top line of Sales.

Pricing & Warranty

How are Smart Company Growth services priced?

Like any consulting firm, when it comes to special services, prices are generally scope dependent for individual projects and are outlined in a Profit Improvement Proposal (PIP).  In most cases after Scope is agreed upon, there is a downpayment or retainer in place with progress payments made during the course of the project, depending upon it’s length.

We have developed standard package pricing available for certain SmartVu Video and LinkedIn products.  Call for prices.

Do you offer a Warranty on your services?

Smart Company Growth consulting services are warranted with a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE for any unused services that have not been delivered upon cancellation of a project.  This applies to deposits, retainers, and future payments as outlined in the initial scope of work.  If a service has been delivered and is not to your satisfaction as a client, your written notification to Smart Company Growth will initiate a remediation process until that service meets with your absolute delight.

Certain packaged services, like SmartVu Executive Video Interviews, have a money-back guarranty if not completely satisfied within a given time period. Check each service page for warranty details.
