Excerpts from letters Byrnes Consulting has received
From Danvers, MA – March 29, 2012
■ “I wholeheartedly recommend the services of Byrnes Consulting, LLC to help with business planning, marketing strategy and business development.
Over the last year, Mike Byrnes worked to help us have a better focus and implement new best practices. We have never had an organized approach to marketing. We decided to get serious about bringing new clients on board. We spoke with several marketing consulting groups in the financial planning industry. Mike was right on target with his analysis of what we wanted to accomplish.
He first helped us identify our brand strengths, by providing analysis from interviewing our staff and researching our clients in a focus group and electronic survey. Mike kept us accountable, exactly like a good coach should.
He then helped us review our current marketing and sales activities and gave us a tremendous amount of advice to shape a clearly defined plan for our top market segments, which included client and strategic referral programs, PR, social media, events and more.
We now have a complete plan of action with methods to track our responsibilities and results. Mike is clearly a leader in the area of online marketing and his expertise never fails to amaze me.
Through working with Byrnes Consulting as an extended part of our team, we now have an even better foundation to increase our success. Mike was encouraging and easy to work with and we will definitely be using his consulting services in the future.
If you are a firm looking to grow your business, Byrnes Consulting is the right organization to hire!”
From Upper Marlboro, MD – March 10, 2012
■ “The information you shared [on 'Leveraging Philanthropy'] was invaluable and was one of the best presentations I attended at the [FPA Business Solutions] conference.”
From San Antonio, TX – December 23, 2009
■ “Thank you again for educating, guiding, and ultimately holding us accountable for our actions. Our success in 2009 and continued success going forward is due, in large part, to your assistance.”
From Severn, MD – November 25, 2009
■ “Thank you so much for the guidance you provided me in developing my business plan… The fact finding session helped me stay focused on what was important and as a result I could write a business plan that really works… Thank you for your guidance in designing a marketing plan. It is still a work in progress, but I am already seeing the fruits of our labor. Your expertise in the area of strategic planning resulted in the written plan documents, but your friendship and encouragement means much more.”
From Orlando, FL – November 9, 2009
■ “I just wanted to take the opportunity to convey to you my thanks and appreciation for the work that you did with me and my firm in helping me to think through and ultimately create a marketing plan. Your personable manner, preparation, and creative thinking made working together a great experience. Being a small business that struggles to keep all the balls in the air, it was helpful to have your guidance in thinking through my target market, as well has how to go about reaching them most efficiently in all the context of my business’ personality.”
From Fairbury, IL – October 19, 2009
■ “It was certainly of benefit to me and my practice to work with you recently… I also appreciate your guidance and insight in the development of my business plan and marketing plan… I was able to get away from the day-to-day office ‘stuff’ to work on the business. This has proven to be greatly beneficial to me and the business.”
From Forked River, NJ – October 7, 2009
■ “Mike was an extreme asset in helping me with big projects by breaking them down into smaller tasks, prioritizing initiatives, and creating the marketing messaging to existing and new clients. He was invaluable.”
From Peabody, MA – October 1, 2009
■ “We found that both day-to-day client needs and market volatility were distracting us from managing our own business. That’s why hiring Byrnes Consulting was so valuable. I believe you will find Mike’s services as a powerful investment in your own business, which will more than pay-off for itself in the first year and then compound your success in years to follow.”
From Memphis, TN – September 18, 2009
■ “I just wanted to let you know how valuable your guidance was, and continues to be, regarding the ongoing growth of my business. We are continuing to refine and implement the marketing plan that you helped us develop. This plan helps us control the things that we have control over: our level of activity, and how we chose to spend our time. We are seeing results currently, and have confidence that this plan will help us to consistently achieve the results that we are after.”
