Hire a Business Services Consultant


Thinking of Hiring a Business Services Consultant?

Running a business these days demands that the business owner or manager be on top of their game in order to compete in a largely saturated and often highly volatile marketplace. While many businesses are similar in some ways in terms of their retail offerings and marketing mix, others claim to supply a specialty consumer base that is as flexible as it is forward-thinking. Both traders pride themselves in offering customers what is expected of them – good quality goods or services at a competitive price, stock range, and after-sales support.

Difficult Challenges:

Most enterprises that have successfully served a loyal customer base over several decades or more are today beset with difficult challenges to also embrace a youthful tech-savvy clientele. While they realize the path to continued success lies in regularly revamping their entire operation this is generally perceived as a daunting and potentially risky step. What if the new look and hip approach brings operations to a screeching halt? Will drastic change bring about a mass exodus of long-term customers?

Change is Good:

Not everyone welcomes radical change; mostly people tend to resist any form of change that might upset the predictability of their routine. Why fix it if it ain’t broke, right? While we all want better value for our money we balk at the mere suggestion of change. Business owners in particular don’t want to be told their employees operate below par, that their poor interaction with customers is forcing them to rather patronize your competitors. At the same time younger generations take for granted the newness associated with trendiness.

New Brooms:

While few businesses that can rightfully boast longevity applaud the wake-up call to step into the 21st Century; however, some accept that ‘new brooms sweep clean’ by adopting a fresh outlook as opposed to clinging on to a safe ‘business as usual’ approach. Let’s face it, modernizing the exterior and interior of long-term ‘landmark’ businesses require the skill and talent of a number of talented people, including architects, interior designers, landscape specialists, merchandisers, PR practitioners, venture capitalists, marketers, and shop fitters. Instead of running amuck from one expert to another, obliging the business owner or manager to micro-manage the company’s turn-around, consider working with a reputable consultancy firm such as ECL Business Solutions (Pty) Ltd, offering the necessary services under one roof.
