Frisco, TX (PRWEB) April 30, 2010
Influency Group LLC, a provider of strategic management consulting and marketing services, today announced availability of its services on a monthly subscription basis. A result of market analysis and client demand, the span of Influency Group’s services across your business are now available for one flat monthly fee, regardless of the type of service requested. From strategic planning, to management coaching, to marketing program development and social media services, or on/offshore software development management, all services are now available under one subscription rate umbrella.
“In this recession, time of layoffs and working with fewer resources, our clients have needs across their businesses. With decades of experience in the ECM industry and executive experts in all major business areas, Influency is a natural choice,” said Kara Cleaver, founder of Influency Group. “Clients bring us in, often in the marketing or product development area, and as we are putting together these programs, we uncover other areas of the business where the executive team needs help…from operational reviews, to incentive compensation, to building out strategic relationships, and even graphic design work for a website or tradeshow signage and giveaways,” Cleaver continued. “Offering all our services via one subscription rate is in direct response to our clients needs.”
Influency Group offers four subscription levels, ranging from 20 to 80 hours per month, in addition to the Pearls of Wisdom program, which is a strategic mentoring program for executive teams. Rates are scaled into three levels based on stage of the business and annual revenues. Clients prepay the desired subscription level on a month to month basis, typically via PayPal, and those hours are available across the various service areas. Clients are free to change their subscription level on any given monthly renewal, however additional savings are available for quarterly or annual commitments. “Clients have really appreciated the value in a proven team that has worked together for a long time, and being able to fill in their own gaps of expertise as needed. When the time is right, Influency Group can assist clients with hiring full-time employees and transitioning out or to an advisory capacity as appropriate,” Cleaver said.
“It is terrific to know I can ‘use my lifeline’ any time and not worry about whether my request is in or out of scope, or what the call is going to cost,” said Alan Haugh, Managing Director of Zees Holdings. “When I was looking for help, primarily around social media strategies, I knew I had some extra hurdles as a startup business. I needed someone who would really believe in what I was trying to accomplish. They had to be accessible. They had to have experience with startups. They had to have passion. They had to be honest and I had to trust them with my business,” said Haugh. “The Influency team has all these attributes and more. I know I made the right decision,” finished Haugh.
“It is our pleasure to work with Zees Holdings,” said Cleaver. “They have a unique product in a different space for us. Further, Zees understands the business side of growing a business and how critical it is to develop the strategy and vision, and to execute,” said Cleaver. “Unfortunately we can only work with a few select startups in addition to our other clients. By nature, startups have special needs and a few extra hurdles. We understand, we’ve been there, and we are so happy to give back through our STARTUP program. It’s also been fun to expand our services outside the technology area, applying many of the same avenues for success.”
Other clients, such as Blue Iguana Software, enjoy the Pearls of Wisdom and executive in residence programs. “We engaged with Influency Group to provide more strategic direction across our business. As a Do-It-Yourself green solution, beginning with the business edition and moving into the home edition, we had a lot of potential avenues to take. We knew it was important to keep both the day to day and the big picture in mind. The Influency team helped us do that,” said Will Rhodes, VP Sales at Blue Iguana Software. “Coming from the software business, Kara was able to keep us on track as we were going to market, to ensure our Is were dotted and our Ts were crossed. Once to market, the Influency team helped us extend our reach to areas we would not have been able to touch on yet,” concluded Rhodes.
