Nels Henderson

Digital Marketing and Project Management Consulting

Small Change, Big Results.

Recently, a client asked me why I didn't go right into pitching a brand new website when we first met. He said that every marketing consultant he had ever met told him he had to throw everything out and start over. 'Why don't you do that?', he asked.

You can see my answer in the video above. Basically, I don't want you to have to pay for services you may not need. I believe in the Japanese concept of 'kaizen' which is 'small change bringing big results'. Yes, we may end up with a brand new site after we test concepts and try new content and have worked together for a time -- but I am confident I can make a difference without it.

How we would work together.

One of the reasons why I became a marketing consultant is that I enjoy collaboration and tackling puzzles. Take advantage of my extensive experience in website and landing page design for your next marketing campaign. I believe in testing assumptions, proving results and being able to explain what I do in a way that you can understand.

  1. My first consultation is free. We can talk about your needs and how I might be able to help you. There's no obligation and I'd be happy to put together a plan.
  2. I'll provide a written proposal. I'll provide a time and fee estimate for specific actions I would take. This makes sure you know what I would do and why I would do it.
  3. The first step is all about analytics. If you don't have Google Analytics implemented, I will make sure it is and that you have full access to your own website data. This will help us make decisions as data doesn't lie.
  4. I always provide deliverables and due dates which makes expectations clear.
  5. When the project is done, we will meet and review how it went and what results were seen. Here, I will suggest next steps for improving your marketing or optimizing your website.
