I've been a CSM for a bout 5 years now, with years of marketing experience as well. I've been asked by a startup company to do some consulting work for them. I've never done consulting before so I'm a bit nervous about it. This will be on top of my full-time job.

Has anyone here done something similar? Any advice/tips? How much would you charge?

I've done consulting. I like it, it's pretty easy money. Just get an idea of what they are trying to improve upon and give your best suggestions. Create frameworks to track analytics and progress. It's pretty fun.


Just make sure you can handle both jobs. Sometimes it can really take up all of your time and leave you exhausted. How good is the start up? I'd make sure they're going to stay viable before signing up for it.


Can I ask how you got started with consulting? Did you already have a relationship with the start up ? Or did you seek them out an offer services ?

Small story time here. Met with a company that had me do three tests and all was fine until I met with the co-founder on the second interview. Long story short at the end of the call he said "Thanks, Kid" (I am a 22yo female).... inappropriate, no?

So, I got an email from him saying he wants to meet to go over my offer letter (red flag right?) I told him he can email it to me and I'll look it over and let him know if I have any questions... feels like im trying to be manipulated bc im young
