What to Expect

I roll up my sleeves and become an expert in your brand, your category, your retailers, your competition, and the shoppers looking for your products.  We work together to identify project objectives and goals.  I then make recommendations to meet and exceed those objectives.  Then, I get to work and you get results.

How it Works

  • We will first talk by phone to discuss your needs, your current situation, your goals and objectives, and to evaluate your level of knowledge of category management strategies, tools, and solutions.  This usually takes 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Next I will draft a custom solution to address your goals along with my recommendations. This typically takes place during our initial conversation.
  • With an agreed upon set of objectives in writing, we then discuss your available resources (data, insights, etc), the project timeline, how we will be working together, and the expected deliverable.  I can work with you and your team in person, onsite, by phone, and even at retail.
  • I then give you a proposal detailing everything needed to properly complete the project, the estimated time required, and the estimated fees.
  • Once the proposal is accepted, we then work together to capture all of the resources needed for the project including syndicated data, retailer Point of Sale data, consumer/shopper insights, etc.
  • You will then receive regular project and progress updates.
  • Your satisfaction is my top priority.  I work with start-ups as well as established brands looking to rise to the next level and beyond.

The Details

Your advising is hands-on and geared to your specific needs.  This is not a cookie-cutter one-size-fits-all program. You gain a professional Strategic Advisor with the skills required to meet and exceed your objectives. More importantly, you only pay for the skills and support you need and nothing more.

Retainer: Sometimes beginners don’t know what they need to effectively grow sales and profits.  I recommend we begin with a ten hour retainer. This gives me an opportunity to better understand and assess your situation along with your current and future needs and objectives.  I will then recommend a solution and provide you with the estimate of the time required to achieve that objective.

Custom: I work with you to find the best solution, or combination of solutions, to meet and exceed your project objectives.

I will discuss my fees during your free 30 minute initial consultation.
