I’m going to start my own strategy consulting firm utilizing the skills I’ve acquired through work. Any chance someone within the same industry can refer me to some good starting points on how to best acquire customers. I’m thinking of starting with blogs and writing cases.

1) start an LLC. You can do so online within your state at relatively no cost. 2) obtain an EIN and open a business bank account. 3) familiarize yourself with formulating statements of work. 4) acquire automated tool sets for what it is you’d like to offer. 5) start attending conferences and socialize like crazy.

All of these set the stage for a great foundation. Godspeed!

Likely not…as ACN typically chases accounts at companies with billions of revenue. If you’re providing services to a, say, $100M company, I see no conflict of interest. Feel free to peruse policies.Accenture.com to verify but this usually doesn’t represent a conflict or necessitate disclosure unless you are directly competing with the firm.

If you’re looking for a partner, DMs open. I think it’d be a pretty cool idea to form a consulting firm with a modern twist where clients can build the team and without all the bureaucracy they deal with current vendors. Also, rapid turnarounds..why does an assessment take 6 months or even 3?!

Recently started consulting firm (in Central Europe tho) and I have only one answer to you - networking. Online events evolved with emphasis on networking and also live events are slowly being organized left and right. We got our first clients instantly and have 6 months of leads exclusively through already existing connections.

Conferences, networking in-person events, associations, related organizations. Here both govt and NGOs are quite active, ofc. it depends on the industry verticals.

Your network is your best friend. Now is the time to tap into it and ask for referrals like mad. The people you know will put you in touch with more people than you could meet at conferences in the next 3 years.

Read up on how to ask for referrals. Be specific in your ask for them. Don’t say “c-suite.” Ask for something like “CMOs in mid-market companies, like [x].” And have a follow-up ask if they can’t help you with that. “Instead, would you be able to help by making an introduction to one of the following three people: x, y, z? I took a quick peek at your LinkedIn connections and would love to chat with them.” Make the referral request easy for them. Then, you just need to be able to hold a good initial conversation with those referrals before moving it to any kind of immediate or long-term sales discussion. Don’t be shy and also don’t be anything less than honest. Remember, people want to be helpful—especially when it’s from a referral.

Last, open up those other channels (talking with past clients, conferences, marketing efforts, web site, …).
