Personalized Salesforce Consulting
Who, Where?I am a NYC based Salesforce consultant looking to help small to medium sized businesses improve their Sales, Fundraising, Analytics, and overall day-to-day operations with Salesforce as a platform.
Transparency the whole wayI list my methodology and pricing below. I started this practice to provide my clients a better, more consistent implementation.
Not rocket scienceRegardless of your technical ability, I'll work to help you understand any new concepts or technologies in the clearest way.
Why use me instead of a large firm?
At a typical firm, a sales representative or account executive does the scoping while someone else does the building. This is because the technical resources must remain billable while sales people work on base + commission. Since the people doing the scoping may not always have the most knowledge about the build, this can cause gaps when it comes to requirement collecting and building down the line.
Since I have a vast technical understanding of the Salesforce platform there will be no lapse in communication between us, I will scope the level of effort with honesty, and I will handle the entirety of the project end to end.
Since you’re working with me and me only, I charge fair pricing for my work. I am not an account executive with a quota to meet and unlike a consulting firm, my overhead is much lower. I am 11x certified with several years experience under my belt and only plan to learn more on the side.
As many Salesforce consulting firms enter the market, they start with smaller businesses but inevitably transition to larger clients as their own company grows. It creates inconsistencies for smaller businesses to find a reliable partner and remain in relationship with them while their former consultant is seeking projects of a much larger size.
Considering I work by myself, I don’t intend to phase clients out and I don’t intend to hire anyone or grow. I’d prefer to continue working with small to medium sized businesses and have indefinite partnerships with the existing ones.
Salesforce often uses a phrase called “Clicks, not code” implying that their platform can be built upon without the need for custom written programming code (or declaratively). Salesforce uses two main programming languages, Apex and Visualforce which both come into play when certain solutions simply cannot be built with clicks only.
The Salesforce ecosystem is made of those who started as Admins and learn to build declaratively and those who start out as Developers and learn the coding portion. As someone with prior programming experience (iOS and Java) and then taking the Admin route followed by the Developer route, I have a well-rounded knowledge of when something requires code or not.
It’s a sales guy’s job to sell, right? Well when sales guys at consulting firms sell too much, it causes the need for too much work to be executed. That either leaves the firm to outsource or to leave the new client on the back-burner until the next consulting resource is available to work on it. This can leave new clients waiting weeks just to get started.
Since I will never take on more work than I can do and will also never outsource, when a client signs I intend to get started as soon as possible.
