American Hope Success
At American Hope Success, our focus is on exit strategies for the small to mid-sized business owner.
As Merger & Acquisition consultants we work on a fee basis making the potential for income higher than the “run-of-mill” management consultant.
Our founder, WL Laney has utilized a career of sales, business ownership and business consulting to develop a proprietary marketing program filled with growth strategies for the business owner all leading to a successful sale of the client’s business at a premium price.
The combination of a confidential marketing approach and a focus on the future “real” value of the client’s business puts you head and shoulders above the competition.
What can you expect to earn as a business consultant?
According to “The Balance” an advice web site providing practical advice on your money and financial goals,
A career as a marketing consultant can be both challenging and rewarding. To be successful in the field, you must be comfortable with strategic planning, management, developing internal and external communications campaigns, and the digital side of marketing. Pay for marketing consultants can vary greatly and depends on a few factors, including industry, location, experience, and demonstratable skills.
Consulting fees can range anywhere from $20 an hour to $200 (or more) an hour depending on experience, the company you’re working with and your knowledge of it, industry, location, and other factors. A reasonable way to determine your hourly rate is to use an “hours worked in the year” formula: Desired Salary ÷ Number of Hours Worked Per Year = Hourly Rate.
If you assume you’ll be working more or less full time with a couple of weeks off, you will end up with 40 hours a week for 50 weeks, or 2,000 hours per year. From here, it’s a simple matter of plugging in the numbers. Let’s say you made $75,000 when you last worked full time, or you just believe you are worth $75,000 based on experience and what you have to offer. In that case, the formula would like this: $75,000 ÷ 2,000 hours = $37.50/hour.
Clients may also wish to pay you per project. If you’re unsure how much to charge per project, then it’s a good idea to start by settling on your hourly rate, determining the number of hours you’ll need to commit, and then multiplying that time by your hourly rate.
