Remote business help for startups and established businesses
Need help with your business, but don’t have the budget for another senior member on your team? We provide an affordable remote business advisor service for startups and established businesses.
20+ years’ experience in founding and running online businesses
What can we help with?
Whether you want to launch a business or grow an existing one; launch a new product; solve a problem; change direction; follow the money; get involved in the next big thing; fine tune your growth strategy; outpace your competitors; reduce overheads; increase turnover/profit; clarify your business offering so people actually know what you do (what a concept!); raise investment; bootstrap; or sell your business… whatever stage you’re at, whatever your challenge, contact us for an informal chat today.
Who do we work with?
Freelancers and sole-traders
Working by yourself can be lonely at times. If there’s a problem or a challenge to overcome there is often no one to talk to and the buck stops with you. You’ve gained your expertise working for other people and decided to go it alone, but perhaps it’s not quite as straightforward as you hoped? Are there areas of your business that are causing problems? If so, a business advisor could help. You probably just need a little advice and some solid ideas you can utilise. Don’t have sleepless nights – try contacting us instead.
The latest statistics are shocking – apparently over 90% of startups fail. Whilst that may not sound terribly encouraging, you need to acknowledge it and then do everything you can to ensure you’re not one of the casualties. It’s important for a startup to start on the right footing. You’ll no doubt hit a few brick walls during the startup phase whether you plan to bootstrap or raise investment. Getting help and advice could save you from costly mistakes and really set you on the right track with your business. Whether you want someone to bounce ideas off, or you need concrete advice, contact us and let’s talk.
Working with an experienced business advisor could set you apart from your competitors. Depending on your objectives it could help you raise investment, or help you bootstrap all the way to success. Different challenges present themselves once a business is past the startup phase. Often we speak to people who are struggling to decide how to take their business to the next stage. Making the wrong move can be a real worry. Over-expansion can kill a business. Changing direction is tough. That’s where our experience can really help.

Why is my website not generating sales? This is a question most website owners ask themselves at one point or another. There are many ways in which your website may not be functioning properly. I’m not talking about technically faulty sites with functionality not working and pages not being found. I’m referring to your website […]
Business owners are often confused as to why investors value a business differently from each other, even for similar-sized businesses, at the same stage, in the same sector. Someone who asked me recently was referring to the TV show Dragons’ Den; however, the conundrum applies to many investment situations. As you’re probably aware, there is […]
It’s well documented that too much choice – ‘overchoice’, ‘choice paralysis’, ‘paradox of choice’, whatever you want to call it – rather than help people, causes a whole host of problems including a ton of anxiety and stress. When it comes to shopping online this ‘overchoice’ is just getting worse and worse. Depending on what […]
Why do so many startup businesses fail? Well, there’s a question! We all hear the stats on how many new startup businesses fail in the first year, and by all accounts it’s only getting worse. For years, the reasons given often skated around the real issues, and the help offered was often centred around old-fashioned […]
Last year SiteGround’s new Client Area and Site Tools were launched. New customers started using these interfaces in August 2019 and existing clients are currently being migrated. Having spent years getting used to cPanel I was a little nervous about the change. I didn’t need to be. It is excellent. Built using REACT as a […]
I can’t help but feel sorry for high street retailers. They were already struggling and then Coronavirus came along and kicked them whilst they were down. Some will find it hard to recover – especially ones who seem to be making strategic decisions that do little to help their cause.At the moment, it’s even more […]
All over the world businesses are really struggling due to coronavirus. Employees are finding the situation equally hard – worrying about their jobs and having to work from home for the first time. I was thinking of writing a post giving any advice I could for businesses who are having difficulties, and tips for people […]
Is it a good idea to have one big client? …… In short, no.Articles about this topic have been around for years, yet sadly, businesses are still giving in to temptation. So I decided it was time for another go at persuading business owners that it’s not a good idea to have one big client.I […]
