How do I market consultancy services to get more clients

Veteran

Matthew Kime Lutz, FL

I am a retired Army O5, I served in the Acquistion Corps in the contracting career field. Rather than take the easy path and going government service, I opted to become a contractor and establish a small business. Knowledge of federal procurement is great but it does not translate into running and growing a small business. I have won small federal contracts, however I would appreciate advice and mentorship on how to market my business to gain more clients and advice on business finance to grow my consultancy. I'm seeking advice on how to grow so that my small business can become a fulltime job in its own right. Thanks.

Matthew,
You might want to check out Kelly Services, specifically the OCG division. They have massive contracts with huge companies in many areas, supply chain being one. They are always looking for "experts" to fill a niche in a contract or consultancy arrangement. Thanks for your service and God Bless.

Hey Matthew,

Thanks for your question, I think this is something many people are looking for help and guidance on when starting a small business. I would suggest looking in our community page for someone who may have this kind of expertise, and message them directly if you have any specific questions.

In the meantime, I will link to a few resources related to small businesses and start-ups which you may find useful to check out!
