How To Prepare for Your Consultation With Elite Vivant
Congratulations! You’ve decided to take action and seek help with the challenges in the way of your ultimate success. Elite Vivant is thrilled to be part of your exploration, and we are honored that you are taking the time to explore working with us. Our mission is to help you overcome any obstacles you are facing and provide you with solutions to grow your brand – no matter the stage of your business. Let’s dive deeper into the first step in exploring our new client relationship, a one-on-one consultation.
Elite Vivant conducts consultations to understand:
- What challenges you are facing?
- What do you hope to achieve?
- What is getting in your way?
- Your readiness for change?
At the end of our call, we will determine if working together will be a good fit. If it is, we will begin the onboarding process.
Here are some helpful tips of how to best prepare for your consultation with The Elite Vivant Team:
1. Familiarize yourself with our project prerequisites because all projects start here!
“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” – Yogi Berra
Planning sets the foundation for strategy, so we meticulously research and understand all the elements of your brand. Through this research, we are able to further hone in on the strategy as well as make any additions or pivots necessary! With this research phase, clients improve their ROI, understand their SWOT analysis, and can move forward confidently with Elite Vivant to the next phase of the project, the Implementation Project.
Types of Projects Prerequisites:
Brand Clarity Session: Our one-on-one Brand Clarity Session is a 90-minute zoom session where you will receive guidance, feedback, and a trustworthy sounding board for your ideas.
Brand Blueprint: Branding blueprint customizes a clear strategy to reach goals, design alluring content, identify strengths and areas of growth, and reduce marketplace expansion costs.
Brand Audit to Brand Blueprint: Brand Audits best serve existing brands; during a brand audit, we meticulously examine a brand’s marketing collateral, social media channels, customer engagement, and other relevant data to discover areas of strength and growth.
2. Your Business Vision
We want you to share what inspires your company and what drives you each day – your vision for your company. Additionally, we will discuss your challenges as well because as your partner, we will help you conquer your challenges so your brand grows and evolves. As entrepreneurs, we recognize the passion and drive within one another as well as the obstacles we need to overcome. This spark that kindles your joy and motivates you every day also inspires our team to create a unique project for your unique business.
3. Your Expectation & Level of Involvement
As we gain clarity about the needs of your brand and your vision, the collaborative process begins. It’s a team effort between your brand and Elite Vivant because as we work to provide you solutions, there will be tasks that you must complete in a timely fashion to meet project deadlines. To avoid delays, we openly communicate via your Asana Board and email to ensure you stay up-to-date on what needs to happen on your end and what we are working on. Due to the fact that we are a boutique agency and to ensure top quality deliverables, we only accept mutually beneficial partnerships.
For new businesses, we recommend a 3- 6 month timeline before you launch.
After agreeing to collaborate on projects together, project start dates are 2-4 weeks after our initial consultation.
Project Prerequisites last about 4-6 weeks and then clients transition to the next phase, Implementation Projects, and finally a Retainer Project to support ongoing goals.
Even though we are a boutique agency, we operate on a large scale since website, marketing, and brand identity are interconnected and influence the success of one another. Oftentimes, businesses choose to scale their business with us and add projects as they grow, so it’s important to identify short and long-term goals for your business.
Hiring experts and investing time and money into your business will provide a greater ROI long term. We understand that all clients have different budgets and we respect that. If needed, we prioritize projects into stages with mutually agreed upon payment plans to accommodate clients. Our clients invest $3500 – $20,000 over a course of 6 months.
Prepare Your Questions
Bring all your questions about your goals, obstacles, our processes, and more! We answer these even though all of our clients start with a project prerequisite, we discuss all future solutions that will be part of the next phase, Implementation Project.
