Freelancers and Consultants: Get Answers To Your Most Pressing Business and Marketing Questions

A 1-on-1 Call will give you specific, actionable, personalized advice, answering your most pressing questions on how to market your business and fill your pipeline.

In short: You come with questions, I give you answers. 

Get actionable advice from a consultant who has been there

"I always seem to convince myself through stubbornness and/or ego that I can correct course on my own with 'just a little more hard work'"

Those are the exact words a freelancer who paid for a 1-on-1 call used to describe their current situation.

They had been spinning their wheels for months on a decision for their business. In our call, we were able to identify the steps for them to take to grow their business.

Often all it takes is to talk to the right person at the right time.

Put the analysis paralysis behind you and get actionable, specific advice on exactly what to do next for you and your business. Book a live 1-on-1 video call today and get actionable, specific advice.

Imagine knowing exactly what to do next

Imagine this.

Imagine having someone who has been in your shoes as an independent business owner, a freelancer, and a consultant, that you can bounce ideas off of and who can help shake you loose when you're locked up in decision paralysis.

Like many entrepreneurs, you may feel overwhelmed and unsure because the overall plan isn't perfect in your head.

Imagine having the influence and advice of a trusted peer to help you (and your business) realize your full potential.

Imagine knowing what to do next with specific, actionable, personalized advice and answers to your most pressing questions.

Here’s How It Works

Book a live 1-on-1 live video call and get your questions answered.

Before the call, you'll share your biggest business or marketing challenges and questions with me in The Business Health Analysis, a detailed questionnaire that lets me learn about your business, your challenges, and how I can help the most.

On your call, we'll dive into your business and answer your pressing questions.

You'll get answers to your questions and actionable advice for your current situation.

"What if I don't know what question to ask?"

Video calls include The Business Health Analysis pre-call questionnaire. 

The Business Health Analysis is a detailed questionnaire that will help you start thinking critically about your business and your marketing and identify the questions on your mind.

The Business Health Analysis helps me learn about you and your business so I can understand where I can help you the most.

My work with Kai started with a Business Health Analysis. This in-depth questionnaire helped me tremendously!

By completing the Business Health Analysis, I had a much more clear understanding of my business' strengths, weaknesses, and goals.

— Jacklyn Deans, Ecommerce Consultant, Flash + Color

"What topics do people ask about?"

These are topics and questions that stand out from my notes from my last dozen calls:

  • "Does my positioning make sense? What should I change about it?"
  • "I need a gameplan for marketing myself as a consultant. What should I do?"
  • "I want to write a book. I also need clients soon. How do I do both?"
  • "What should I work on to get to $100,000 in revenue in a year?"
  • "I'm booked solid and need to find time to work on my business. What should I do?"
  • "Can you read these emails and help me make them better?"
  • "Can you review this proposal and give me feedback?"
  • How do I run my own Podcast Tour?
  • "Positioning! What target market should I focus on? How do I refine my target market?"
  • "How do I research a new target market?"
  • "I want to write an ebook. What specific steps should I take?"
  • "I want to get started with email marketing. What should I do first?"
  • "I tried using a CRM and it just didn't work for me. Can you show me what process to use?"

After a call you'll leave with:

  • Direction on what to work on next, so you avoid getting stuck
  • Specific feedback on your business from The Business Health Analysis
  • Specific steps to take to reach the financial goals you want to hit in the coming 12-months

And, of course: direct advice on how to improve your marketing and sales, what to start with, what to measure, and how you'll know if things are working.

Your video call will also be recorded and shared with you for you to reference whenever you need.

On the call, you'll receive practical “do this specific thing next” instruction gained from 10,000+ hours of work as an independent consultant and 3,000+ hours of work coaching dozens of freelancers and consultants just like you.

There was so much I wanted to cover, including things that had cropped up after I’d answered the pre-call questionnaire.

I needn’t have worried! Kai made certain to structure and steer the call in order to cover everything I’d hoped to talk to him about (and more!)

I came out of the call with a great sense of clarity!

"I’ve managed to more than 4.5x the amount of monthly income I was receiving before our call"

I had to drop you an email to let you know - since we had the coaching call last year, I’ve completely revamped my retainer services. In fact, I’ve actually CREATED some new retainer services (what I call Design Partnerships).

I’ve not even fully launched them yet, but I’ve managed to more than 4.5x the amount of monthly income I was receiving before our call - by adding only 2 extra monthly partnership clients into the mix!

THANK YOU for this - I have no idea why I resisted retainer style work for so long in my business, but it’s been a complete game changer for me.

I’m now hoping to grow my design partnerships post-launch to at least 10x what my original amount was, and potentially even more. — Rachel Shillcock, Founder & Designer, Rachilli

Questions, asked with some frequency

"I don’t think I need help"

Everyone needs help.

I frequently invest in 1-off calls, mentoring, coaching, and products that help me be a better consultant, a better marketer, and a better freelancer.

You might not think you need help right now — but let me ask you this:

  • Why would someone hire a maid when they could just clean their home themselves?
  • Why would someone pay a barber when they could just cut their hair themselves?
  • Why would someone pay a mechanic to repair their car when they could just learn how to do it online?
  • Why would someone hire a landscaper when they could mow their own lawn and rake their own leaves?
  • Why would someone pay an accountant to file their taxes?

The ultimate answer to all of these is:

Because they have more money than time.

If you don't recognize the value of professional assistance, I will be unable to help you.

"What are your strengths in helping freelancers and consultants with their business?"

Marketing. I'm a marketer by trade with over 15 years of professional experience. I think of myself as a marketer first and a business coach third.

I focus on understanding your current situations, the outcomes you're looking for, and your unique constraints.

From there, we work together to define a realistic plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be.

"What makes you qualified to tell me about my business?"

I've worked as a freelancer, contractor, and consultant for 13+ years. I have hard-won, real-world, first-hand experience in what it takes to move from contractor to freelancer and from freelancer to consultant.

When we work together, you're tapping into:

  • My years of experience working as an independent consultant
  • My background as a marketer, business-person, and consultant
  • My self-study and education, giving you access to everything I've learned studying how to be a better freelancer and consultant

If you're looking at a problem or question in your business, chances are, I've been there, and can offer a perspective on different approaches.

"Do you work with people just starting out as a freelancer?"

Yes.

A number of my clients have just been starting to work as a freelancer or consultant or working on switching from being a 'full-time freelancer' for a single client to having a portfolio of clients.

I can help you identify the specific next steps to take to go from full-time employee or part-time freelancer to full-time freelancer or consultant.

"Are 1-on-1 calls 100% effective?"

You get out what you put in.

  • If you implement the advice you receive 100%, you’ll get back 150% in results
  • If you give it an 80% effort, you’ll get back 50% in results

Think of these as the “100/150 Rule” and the “80/50 Rule” respectively.

In other words — you will get a very poor pay-out if you don’t go 100% on the advice you receive.

My job is to help you identify the lowest effort and the highest impact things to focus on.

I'll provide direction, answers to your questions, help you develop a plan, and remind you to do the work.

You, my friend? You still have to do the work.

"Is this a magic bullet? Will my business be transformed?"

There are no magic bullets.

1-on-1 Calls are wonderful for providing you with:

  • Homework. You'll have specific next-steps to take to work on your business.
  • Direction and a Plan. You'll get specific, personalized direction and feel secure in having a plan of what to work on next.
  • Answers. I don't have all the answers, but I have some. Bring your questions and you'll get answers and direction on where to look for answers.

You, however, still need to do the work.

"If you had to meet my best friend, how would you explain your job to them?"

I teach freelancers and consultants how to market themselves with confidence and fill their pipeline with profitable leads.

"Who is this not right for?"

1-on-1 Calls is absolutely not a good fit if:

  • You want to see changes immediately
  • You don't have an investment mindset
  • The idea of working towards a goal over time makes you feel icky
  • You don't have the time (~4-hours/week) to invest in working on your business
  • You're more interested in the latest marketing/startup/business fad than you are building a durable business

"What happens after I pay?"

Once you submit your payment, you’ll receive a link to schedule an appointment in my calendar and I'll send you The Business Health Analysis to complete.

"Are there any other costs?"

No. I might recommend a few books or pieces of technology that you can optionally invest in. There are no hidden fees or additional costs.

"I’m worried about sharing my business details"

Don’t be. I keep everything you share in strictest confidence. No specific or identifying details about you or your business will be shared with anyone.

"Can my business partner be on the call too?"

No.

Calls are strictly 1-on-1. You are free to bring a list of their questions with you to ask on the call or share the recording of the call with them after the fact. The calls will only consist of two people: you and me.

"How long before I see results?"

If you’re committed about investing in yourself and have time regularly scheduled during the week to work on your business, then you could see results in as little as a few weeks.

But I don’t know you, how you work, or how you treat your business. If you don’t put in the necessary time, you won’t see the outcomes you’re looking for. Just like a gym membership.

"Do you offer refunds?"

No, refunds are not offered for calls.

"I still have questions!"

Here's what a few people have to say about working with me

Before working with Kai, I was stuck. I felt overwhelmed by everything I needed to do in order to grow my consulting business.

Working with Kai, I had a much more clear understanding of my business' strengths, weaknesses, and goals, and where to start.

— Jacklyn Deans, Ecommerce Consultant, Flash + Color

I'd shout this one from the rooftops: "If you want momentous progress in your business, hire Kai Davis."

— Marissa Bracke, Marketing Consultant

The first couple of things I worked on with Kai immediately grew my consulting business.

Kai more than paid for himself!

— Matty McLain, Founder & Consultant

Kai helped me avoid distractions that would get in the way of accomplishing something important and give me shortcuts to get to attracting clients faster.

I really appreciated Kai’s understanding of the emotional hurdles that sometimes can hold a consultant back and his ability to help you break through those obstacles.

— Meg Cumby, Communications Consultant

I'd recommend Kai's services to other freelancers and consultants who are looking for someone that has 'been there' and can offer insight based on years of experience.

— Vincent Dickie, Marketing Strategist

"I was able to raise my daily rate from $600 to $800 with an existing client. All while retaining a great relationship with them, which was crucial to me. That feels pretty awesome :)"

—  Zan Anderle, Developer

Kai is also just royally fun to work with. His relentless optimism combined with top-notch advice leaves me after each of our calls with a smile on my face and a bunch of new action steps.

— David Colgan, Developer, Less Boring Solutions

You told me to revisit my former client list and touch base with them.

Once I started doing this, I got so busy I almost couldn’t keep up. I really appreciate it.

— Kristine K., Freelance Designer

Working with Kai, I nearly doubled the price I charged for my service and nearly doubled my close rate.

— Meg Cumby, Communications Consultant

I wasn't sure the call would generate a Return on Investment for my business, but it did!

As a result of the call, I have a better idea on tools, processes, and positioning improvements I can make, all of which have made my business easier, more sustainable, and more scalable.

— Erik J.

I have clear, actionable steps on how to grow my business

Kai is excellent. After speaking with Kai I have clear, actionable steps on how to grow my business.

There was no fluff, no bs, no running of the clock. Just Kai asking the right questions to understand my business and goals, then Kai providing clear sound answers on how to move forward.

His insight is invaluable. I have a tremendous amount of clarity after our call.

— Jacklyn D.

This call saved me HOURS of research and trial and error

Wow! This call was incredibly valuable. I got so much information in such a short amount of time and Kai was able to break the complicated world of consulting to fill in the gaps in my knowledge. This call saved me HOURS of research and trial and error. Thanks again Kai!

— Connie H.

As a result of my coaching call with Kai, I got feedback that was tailored to my situation about which activities I should focus on in order to get to a paying client the fastest.

— Zaid Hisham, Developer

Just finished a call with Kai Davis! Simply talking to him provided great value for my SaaS biz, I can't wait to start working with him!

— Jason Forest, Founder, RigBooks

Before our call, I was worried that Kai would be too "high level" for me. I thought he might not be able to relate to my challenges. I was also worried that I'd have to scramble to take notes during the call.

During our call, Kai helped me develop a clear plan on which people and companies to target for business. In addition, I also have a great plan (and inspiration) on how to best use my book when it is published later this year.

I appreciate that Kai took the time to listen to me closely and helped me to refine my ideas.

After the call, Kai sent me an audio recording of our conversation for me to listen to as reference as I need. No need to scramble to take notes!

Yes! I would recommend a call with Kai to others

— Bruce H.

Kai listens -- really, really well. He was quoting me back to myself from the first minute of the call in the last minute -- and building on what I had said to tailor solutions for my business. If you've worked with consultants, you know how rare this quality is.

I left the call with:

  • A blueprint for the next steps I need to take to build a more replicable set of offerings while also staying open to high-touch one-off engagements or retainers
  • Knowledge on how to market those offerings most effectively
  • Direction on how to block off time for thought-leadership marketing -- how to reframe it to myself as essential to the business

— Bob L.

I'd highly recommend a call with Kai to anyone looking for actionable marketing advice. Kai is easy to get on with, clearly knows his stuff and communicates his advice very well.

— Malcolm Myers, AMH Test Systems, UK
