Working with a professional consulting service provides advantages over competitors. We work closely with clients to develop optimized strategies for success in every area of the retail and consumer market.

Products and Distribution

Socioeconomic changes, technological advancements, exponential demographic expansion, and competing markets are all disadvantages facing those in the field of product development and distribution. Everything from designing to delivery has become more advanced and requires more time, more money, and more resources.

Working with a professional consulting service provides you access to the tools and information needed to design a more reliable and optimized strategy for success. At startMYplan, we help clients develop new paths toward your goals.

We work with companies in a variety of consumer goods and services, including:

  • Food
  • Apparel
  • Real Estate
  • Hospitality
  • Technology
  • Finance
  • Industrial

With a vast knowledge of this industry and years of experience working with clients within this niche, we have developed a wide network in which our clients prosper. Having access to this network, we are better able to deliver unique and exclusive opportunities to our clients, which competitors in your field may not have access to.

Sales and Finances

All retail businesses require a sturdy financial foundation on which to operate. This is an intricate maze of incoming and outgoing transactions that become complex and difficult to navigate. StartMYplan specializes in breaking down this information, reorganizing it into easily readable data, and helping clients use that data to restructure and optimize your financial department.

Within the area of finance, startMYplan also helps retail and consumer companies with elements such as:

  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Tax Filing
  • Due Diligence
  • Compliance
  • Government and Legal Liaising
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Accounts Payable

As consultants, we are constantly evolving the ways we provide for our clients. From coaching upper management to the training of accounting staff, startMYplan will help your financial department run more smoothly, minimize loss, and maximize income.

Consumer Interaction and Communication

When it comes to sales, consumers are the key to any successful business. This area has become much more diverse over the years, including many advancements in consumer communication and engagement.

Engaging customers has become especially important during the internet age, as more and more shoppers rely on information found online to make decisions. Search engines use advanced algorithms to decide which business within each niche makes it to the top of a results page. One of the things these engines look for is customer engagement and brand relevance. And how do you prove that your brand is relevant? By engaging more customers.

There are many platforms for customer outreach, including e-mail, social media, newsletters, blogs, websites, and more. At startMYplan, we show clients where these platforms are most successful and can teach your team to use them to your greatest advantage.

Developing a consumer engagement strategy pays off in a big way. By reaching more clients and receiving feedback in real-time, you open yourself up to increasing a digital and global presence.

Marketing Strategy Development

Marketing your sales company is an essential step toward ROI. There are many avenues for marketing, all of which we are familiar with. Developing a working marketing strategy is often done early in business. Unfortunately, the market never stops advancing, which leaves some businesses with an outdated advertising blueprint.

By working with such a diverse group of clients, startMYplan has the advantage of seeing advertising in a new and original way. From paper and print to television, radio, and onward into the digital landscape of the internet, we help our clients transform and maximize their reach in the global marketplace.

It’s important to us that our clients are working with the most updated tools and information. To ensure this, we work tirelessly to follow the ebb and flow of the marketing sector and monitor it for changes, both good and bad. Weeding away outdated resources and implementing new ones is among the ways we help.

Resource Digitization

Digitization has become essential for sales companies. Not only for marketing purposes wherein you are presenting your company to the consumer public, but for internal purposes as well. Monitoring growth is best done through reports of collected data. This data comes in the form of analytics, which is collected over several databases and platforms. We help clients collect and read this data to create a corresponding plan for success in those areas.

Digitization is also an area that vastly decreases waste and loss of information. For companies who have large storage rooms filled with stored documents, digitization can save room, time, and resources better used for other projects.

Finally, digitization is also necessary for optimized revenue collection. More consumers are using the internet to manage bank accounts, make payments, and shop. Having a well-structured digital plan for finance and payment is crucial to the success of a modern retail organization.

Digitization requires an element of security. With so much open access to data, ensuring your company’s data is secured, and your customer’s payments are safe from theft and fraud is important. The experts at startMyplan will assess risk and create the best plan for digital security for your business’ needs.
