As a professional services agency, Click2Rank Consulting believes in providing world class solutions to all our clients, big and small. Our senior management comes from a world of global corporate leadership, so we have an intimate understanding of how to ensure the right solution is offered from day one.
Before any project is undertaken, even before implementation budgets are discussed in detail, we always perform a thorough forensic audit. Without this critical step in the project life cycle, how else will we know exactly where the issues lie that need addressing, and what to prioritize? Even if you think you know what you want or need, a forensic audit will ensure there’s no surprises mid-way through a campaign.
Prioritized Action Plans
Once an audit is performed, we’ll specify which tasks need to be performed and in what order. We’ll focus on only those tasks that are most likely to bring the best and most cost-efficient results. Because we recognize your marketing budget, whatever the size, needs to get the most impact. Because every company needs to get the most value for their marketing spend.
At this point, a truly accurate budget will be presented regarding the cost of implementation as specified in the action plan. If the work we recommend turns out to cost more than you may have anticipated before the audit, we’ll work with you to split the work out into phases.
Deliverable Life Cycle
Once we’ve reviewed with you our findings and recommendations from the audit and action plan document, we’ll collaborate on tasking milestones, deliverables and timelines. This way, every action item will be mapped out, and wherever cross-over tasking is required, we’ll ensure a smooth implementation process.
Dedicated Project Management
Of course, as any high quality professional services solution should be, your project will be managed by a dedicated project manager. Someone seasoned in ensuring the work contracted is performed in a timely manner and within budget. Your project manager will also be the point-person regarding scope-creep-prevention. Because there’s no faster way to blow through a budget than to allow changes to be acted upon that were not specified in the contract. When that happens, milestones are missed, costs skyrocket, and everybody becomes over-stressed.
Having a dedicated project manager also means you only need to deal with one person, consistently throughout the entire deliverable life cycle. That alone is one of the most significant means by which you can rest assured your project is in good hands. Accountability.
If there happens to be some aspect of the contract that requires collaboration with an outside vendor, we’ll also act as vendor liaison. Because we know how to communicate the unique needs, the exact parameters and the specific tasking required.
Centralized Communication Point
As a professional services agency, we also understand how critical it is for you to be able to communicate with us throughout the project life cycle. Unfortunately, too many agencies lose their way at this point. Email gets accidentally deleted, files disappear, change-requests become mis-communicated…
At Click2Rank Consulting, we ensure none of those problems plague our projects, by offering all our clients a single centralized communication point. And since we’re an Internet company, that point is online, through one secure password protected environment, where all of a projects’ information, specification documents, support files and correspondence reside.
Long Term Relationships
Everything we do and all of the above described methods ensure one thing above all else. We’re your partner for the long-haul. Because there’s no joy in having to switch solution providers after every project. So we go the extra 3 miles in how we do things. Knowing that when we do, you’ll be our client for many years to come.
