Is It Worth Hiring A WordPress Consultant?

When it comes to hiring someone for a WordPress related job, it really depends who you think is the right person for the job. You can hire a freelancer, a WordPress agency, a decent developer or a WordPress consultant. But not all situations demand a WordPress consultant. Similarly not all tasks can be accomplished by a freelancer.

It depends on a lot of things.

Nature of Work

For simple tasks like newsletter integration or customization of a theme, you can approach a decent freelancer or a developer.

If you need a custom WordPress website for your business, you definitely need to approach either an agency or a competent WordPress developer.

If you are a small, medium sized or large business house, you need more than just a custom website solution. You need a well-behaved website, successful online presence, SEO optimized site and conversion rate optimization. You will need to run various advertising campaigns.

This involves the discovery, planning, implementation and deployment. A Consultant is the right person for this kind of job (period).

A WordPress Consultant will start with assessing the needs of a website for the business / company, will work out a plan and discuss the possible solutions. He will take the reins in his hands to deliver a site that takes your business to the next level. The focus of a WordPress Consultant is on delivering the site that generates revenue and drives sales.

Budget

You can hire a freelancer at a very low rate. You can find a freelancer to happily work for you for as low as $5 per hr. The problem is, freelancers experiment at the cost of your website. Many of my clients have shared their horrible stories of working with the freelancers. Some of them worth mentioning are:

- The work delivered was not as per the expectations.
- After the deadline was over, freelancer informed that he was not competent enough to provide the solution.
- I have to approach the freelancer every now and then to get the site fixed. My website breaks with every WordPress / plugin update.

So basically working with cheap freelancers come at its own cost.

Hiring a decent WordPress developer, the one who has an established identity, is a better option than going for a freelancer. They charge somewhere in the range of $25 – $100 on the hourly basis.

WordPress agencies and WordPress consultants are on the higher end. They charge for the value and the quality they offer. Their charges generally vary depending on the kind of project requirements you have.
If you are a business house, it’s better to hire a WordPress consultant. This will save you a lot of pain for a little extra price.

Work Relationship

For a one time job or a set list of tasks, it is generally a good idea to find a suitable freelancer / developer. The work relationship ends with the end of the project.

The project which involves delivering a custom WordPress website also is a one time job.

But in case of business houses, they need someone to work with them on an ongoing basis. Website maintenance, performance tuning, caching, page speed, landing page optimization, conversion rate optimization, search engine optimization, digital marketing, email marketing… a business website needs all this. Hiring a WordPress web development agency or a WordPress Consultant is always a plus for long term relationship. They make sure that your business is in safe hands.

Enterprise and Priorities

If you are just beginning, you will try to save every single penny and opt to build a WordPress website all by yourself or may be ask a friend to create one for you.

With time you realize that it is not an easy job to maintain online presence for your business. It needs a lot of technical expertise and expert advice to run the show. That is the time when you really need a WordPress Consultant… a game changer!

The Independent Consultant As a Mental Health Consultant in Early Childhood Settings

The goal of a mental health consultant who works in early childhood settings is the promotion of mental wellness and encouragement of positive social relations in children.

A 2005 study by Yale University’s Ed Ziglar Center in Child development found that 6.7 children per 1000 are expelled from preschool every year, three times the rate of expulsions in kindergarten through high school. However, preschool teachers who have access to mental health consultants are about half as likely to expel a child compares with teachers who lack such support based on a report that looked at 3,898 preschool classes in 40 states.

Another recent study in 89 classes conducted by the Tulane University’s Institute of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health link the mental health help offered there to improved behavior and learning and more cheerful classroom climates.

The mental health consultant, in early childhood or preschool settings, helps small children to learn the lifelong social and emotional skills they need. Children have to learn how to get along with people, to respond to them appropriately, and to acquire an awareness of how their actions affect other people and how other people’s actions affect them. To be more specific, they need to learn cooperation, self-control, confidence, independence, curiosity, empathy, and communication. Also preschoolers need to learn how to inhibit impulsive behavior, become thoughtful, interpersonally sensitive, goal-oriented, respectful of other’s space and belongings, and to develop friendships.

In addition, the mental health consultant identifies children with special needs which have often resulted from violence, abuse, prenatal substance abuse, losses due to incarcerations or death, or living in foster homes or with multiple care givers. Such experiences often has significantly affected the lives of children who display severe behavioral and emotional problems such as learning disabilities, speech or language disorders, emotional or behavioral disorders.

The mental health consultant also assist with parent support issues, including stress related issues, finding resources, acquiring job training, etc. Parent workshops and personal consultations with parents are essential in helping parents to implement some of the learning activities the youngsters are experiencing in the classroom as well as to address concerns parents may have relative to personal parenting issues and needs.

In the course of a work day, in addition to scheduled meetings with parents, the mental health consultant carries out classroom observations for assessment and evaluation, insure supportive responses in meeting the children’s needs and conduct scheduled staff development workshops focused on strategies for dealing with behavioral and attention problems.

Recruitment Consultant Jobs – What Do They Do?

Recruitment consultant jobs are easy to excel in; provided you find the right one and know exactly what you need to do to get results.

Let’s step back first and explain exactly what a recruitment consultant is and exactly what they do.

Recruitment consultants (sometimes also called recruiters) help connect talent with great organisations. In other words they help companies find candidates for roles within their organisation.

When a recruitment consultant successfully provides this service they are paid a fee by the organisation in question that is usually a percentage of the salary of the person they have recruited.

Using an example; Jane has a recruitment consultant job at Danvers recruitment. Danvers specialise in providing medical representatives to the pharmaceutical industry. One of Danvers clients is Peak Pharmaceuticals and they want to recruit an experienced medical sales representative to work the North of England. Jane has experience in this sector and has a lot of contacts who would be ideal in this role.

Jane works closely with the hiring manager Andrea to find out the type of candidate she is looking for. Jane then goes about looking for candidates who she has connections with that will fit the role. Jane short lists this down to four people and sends the CV’s over to Andrea. Andrea decides to interview them all and then takes two through to final interview stage. One of these candidates stands out for Andrea and she offers him the role. An ideal scenario!

The candidate is offered a salary of 30,000. Danvers has a special arrangement with Peak Pharmaceuticals and for every candidate they place they get a commission of 25%. On this occasion Jane’s commission or billing fee; as it is known, is 20% of 30,000 so 6000.

Sounds pretty simple doesn’t it? Well it is and it isn’t. Hard work, tenacity and consistency will produce rewards in a recruitment consultant’s job.

As a consultant you will need to understand how to influence and persuade. How to listen to both your candidates and clients to make sure you understand what is important to both of them. It can be far too easy to place a candidate in a role that you think will be perfect, only to discover they have moved on three months later! This is not good customer service from the client’s point of view and can often be avoided with some knowledge, experience and good questions.

So the question everyone wants to know? How are consultants paid and how much can you expect to make? As always in depends. As a general rule a recruitment company expects you to make them money. A quick look on a few rec to rec websites and you will see what the salary range for consultants is. This will depend on your track record and level of experience. In essence recruiters are ‘sales’ people and as such can increase their salary significantly the more successful they are.

Just this morning I noticed on a rec to rec website a junior recruitment consultant job at 25K plus commission and a senior consultant role at 35k plus commission.

Add into this regular commission and you can see why ambition people move into this excellent career. It is not uncommon for good recruiters to place candidates at great fees that can exceed the half a million mark. Do you think their managers and directors reward them with good commissions? You bet!

Retaining an SEO Consultant – Is it Worth the Price?

Your new website is ready for the world to see. You’ve done everything right and you want unlimited traffic to that site. You have created numerous email accounts to accommodate that traffic being directed and tracked properly. You think that you have done everything right but you forgot one thing – Search Engine Optimization.

How will I stand out in the search engine results without expert search engine optimization services?

When you have the flu, you go to your doctor. When you need to keep your car air conditioner repaired, you take it to an auto mechanic who specializes in air conditioner repair. I don’t think you would want to handle it yourself or if you did and it doesn’t work, off to the experts. So now your small business Web site needs SEO help, and you want to retain an SEO consultant and believe it is worth the cost.

Right?

Most times I agree that retaining an SEO expert is the answer, but sometimes, maybe not. Some business owners find that when they retain an SEO consultant the rewards simply don’t justify the up-front investment. If you want to make sure that your site is optimized for search engines, do your research and find out how you will benefit.

Consider some of the following points:

* The need for a SEO consultant will diminish over time. If your site is failing to attract visitors, a SEO consultant will be able to help explain why it is no performing as expected, but if your site doesn’t keep them coming back, there’s nothing an SEO consultant can do about that, unless you are willing to make the changes necessary to counter these actions. The law of diminished returns will start taking effect.

* Sometimes small businesses refuse to make the necessary changes, then the benefits of SEO won’t justify the cost. If you were told you had to invest $1,000 a month to keep your Web site updated and SEOed, you’d probably find a way to justify that investment. Looking at the numbers and doing your research on how much money that SEO brings in, it’s possible you may be discouraged. Don’t be. It’s difficult to measure the return on SEO, and in some cases, there may be better places to invest your money. Your SEO consultant can help you with redirecting your investment where it would be more beneficial.

However there are benefits to hiring an SEO consultant? Did you know the Small Business Administration Study showed that your hourly rate or value is $250 per hour?

How many hours would it take you to do all this yourself vs. outsourcing is the question!

* Outsourcing your SEO to an expert takes it out of your hand and frees you up for other things. Often small business owners are jack-of-all-trades in their business and they simply don’t know how to handle SEO. Believe me; hiring a consultant is exactly what the doctor ordered. Giving this task to the SEO expert will allow them to work their magic and give you one less gruesome item on your gotta do list every day.

* Since you aren’t the expert you often miss the obvious. It like driving there are blind spots. Lots of business owners think they know SEO, but when they hire a professional, they realize that the expert’s objective eve will be able to spot these blind spots and remove the weak areas.

My suggestion is to find a reliable SEO consultant that tracks the revenue that is generated because of their expertise. Make sure that you are viewing your Web site stats and following the recommendations of the SEO consultant.

As in a segment of business, there are good and bad consultants that offer a varying degree of service and quality. SEO technology is still relatively new and, it’s real easy to pay someone too much money or too little for less than thrilling results. I suggest a 90 day trial. You should have some clear plus positive results within 90 days.

Before you hire an SEO consultant, ask yourself about one basic question: What’s the ROI? In every other aspect of your business and life, you should know about your return on investment (ROI). SEO is no different!

Human Resource Consulting – Taking The Plunge

So you want to be a Human Resource consultant. And why not? You’ve paid your dues in corporate life. You’ve risen to the top of your profession. It’s time for a new challenge.

So why not HR consulting? It’s glamorous. It affords you the opportunity to demonstrate your vast skills. It provides you the chance to do stimulating work in different industries. You’ll finally be listened to, you’ll be wanted, and you’ll be able to use your expertise in new and exciting ways.

HR consulting is a great career for the right individual-but the wrong profession for many. If you like predictability, the amenities of corporate life, a steady flow of people to your office, and a regular paycheck with benefits-then keep your day job. But if you’re comfortable with ambiguity, you thrive on change and uncertainty, and juggling multiple projects is what gets you out of bed every morning, then consulting may be for you.

HR consulting is a business and as such, it must be run as one. You need an idea that will sell; you need finances to grow and sustain it; you need insurance to protect it; and you need confidence, creativity, perseverance and a dose of chutzpa to lead it. Consulting is not for the shy or the faint of heart-after all, as I was advised by a wise, experienced consultant: “You wake up every morning unemployed.”

Starting and building a consulting business is hard work. It is not what you do in between looking for a job; it is not something you do on the side. HR consulting is a real business whose focus should always be to improve the condition of your client. And it can be an exciting and lucrative way to make a living.

So how do you become a successful consultant? Beyond printing your business cards, developing a brochure and a web site, and setting up an office in that spare room, here are ten musts for ensuring success.

1. Develop proven expertise: Prospective clients want to work with the best. They seek advice and consultation. Before venturing in, make sure you’re at the top of your game. Unproven entities or someone touting worn out solutions will be deafened by the silence from their phone.

2. Be different: If you look like everyone else; sound like everyone else; and offer the same bag of tricks, why would anyone choose you? Create a unique brand. Vanilla is nice but everyone loves Cherry Garcia.

3. You’re in the marketing business: You can be the best consultant since Drucker, but if no one has heard of you, you’ll starve. You’ve got to market yourself constantly and this is where many HR consultants fail. Get comfortable putting yourself out there on a daily basis or think about another profession.

4. Write and speak often: Writing and speaking are the best ways to demonstrate expertise, develop repute, establish your brand, and get in front of perspective clients.

5. Bring value to the equation: If you’re not bringing anything to the table that the client does not already have, then why do they need you? Clients want your expertise, knowledge and counsel.

6. Understand the differences between wants and needs: Clients want a lot of things, but a good consultant sorts through it all and provides them what they need. For example, they may want an employee satisfaction survey, but they really need to reduce turnover. They may want a new performance appraisal form, but they actually need to properly evaluate, develop, and coach their people. Good consultants listen to their clients, expose them to different ideas, guide them through the process, and provide them with solutions that add value to their organization.

7. Develop solid, long-term relationships: Developing a relationship with a client is more than getting a quick sale. It is getting to really know the person, understanding what makes her tick, and identifying his pressures and challenges. Good consultants develop trusts and confidences. They forge bonds-partnerships.

8. Know who can write a check: The trap in which most consultants get caught is selling to someone who can’t write the check. They quickly respond to any inquiry, meet the “prospect”, write a proposal, and wait. Eventually they find out that they weren’t even talking to a decision maker but merely a go-between. Remember, if you’re not talking to someone who can write a check, you’re merely practicing.

9. Offer results, not activities: Clients buy results, not reports or forms. You are hired to improve the client’s condition. Consultants often describe their involvement by the activities they’ll perform rather than the results they’ll achieve. Focus on results and outcomes, not tasks and activities.

10. Invest in yourself. Your knowledge, expertise, and experiences are what you have to offer. Develop them and find a trusted coach who can offer you perspective, insight, and a dose of reality and an occasional kick in the backside to get you going. You’ll often need it.

HR Consulting is a rewarding career choice. But like the frigid Maine waters, taking the plunge is not for the timid. Develop your plan, engage a trusted advisor, and dive in head first. Once you get swimming, you’ll love it.

Attending a conference provides the perfect venue for networking with other professionals, business owners and others who are in a position to help your business grow and expand.

Industry Experts

A well organized and well planned consultant conference also provides a golden opportunity to hear directly from recognized experts, not only in the consulting world but in the general business world as well. If you have always wondered what makes one company so successful while a seemingly similar company is failing, listening to the keynote speakers at a good consultant conference is a great way to find out. A properly organized consultant conference will provide plenty of opportunities to learn from others who have been where you are and succeeded. These opportunities are difficult to find in the outside world, but they are plentiful at a quality consultant conference.

Growing your business is important, whether you are a brand new consultant or an experienced professional with years of quality service and a solid reputation. No matter how small or large your client base may be, attending a top notch consultant conference is the perfect way to grow your business, network with other seasoned professionals and learn about the new challenges and opportunities facing the consulting industry. In a highly competitive and fast moving business like consulting, you simply cannot afford to stand still – moving forward at the next consulting conference is the perfect way to grow your business.

What to Look For in an SEO Consultant Before Hiring

If you want to increase traffic and sales for your online business, then hiring an SEO consultant might be the solution. These people specialize in search engine optimization; keep up with the latest trends in search engine modifications, website optimization, and internet marketing. There are a ton of consultants that want to do business with you and start working on your site right now. But what should you look for in an SEO consultant before you close a deal with one?

The right personality

We’re not looking for a salesman with a charming smile here. We’re looking for an SEO consultant that doesn’t go over-the-top with selling himself. “10,000 customers in a month!” sure sounds like a great deal, but a good look at SEO should already tell you that it’s an impossible guarantee.

You should also look out for consultants that “guarantee” you things. A consultant that’s too much of an optimist will likely disappoint you in the end. We’re looking for a realistic one with a good head on their shoulders and a good business attitude. That type of consultant will give you results that you’re likely to hear about on a regular basis and keep his mind on optimizing your business.

The right know-how

Basic knowledge on SEO will help you a lot with finding a good SEO consultant. It’ll help with asking the right questions which will land you the answer to the question, “Does this guy really know what he’s talking about?” SEO means keeping up with the trend, knowing what your target customers want to see, and getting you more traffic that increases the chances of getting more customers. Your consultant should know how to do all that specifically for your business.

Synchronized outlook

A top notch SEO consultant should know how to work what you want to happen to your website into the current search trend, and tailor your website into something that will achieve your business goals. He can also advise on a compromise if you, a person that doesn’t have the same expertise as he does in SEO, have ideas that just won’t work with the current trend. In short, your consultant should be able to work with you without pulling maverick moves on your website like it was his own while pulling traffic and customers in at the same time.

A good portfolio

Looking into your SEO consultant’s background will do you and your business a great service. You can ask for a portfolio upfront and an experienced consultant would already have one ready for you. It’s always results we’re after in the SEO business, and you’ll want a consultant with a good background if you want good results.

The right price

It’s easy to work scams into this type of business, so you need to beware prices that are either too high or too low. A good consultant will give you a reasonable price for your reasonable demands and produce good results out of it not only for the profit (although that’s a huge part of it, since they’re still running a business after all) but also as another great addition to their portfolio for their future customers.
