Unlocking Success: Diversification Strategies for Maximized Consulting Income

 Increasing and diversifying consulting income is valuable strategic work. Here are a dozen tactics you can try to increase your income as a consultant.

1. Expand Offerings to Current Clients

Rather than selling necessarily to new clients, look for ways to upsell into the clients you already have. If you’re a CPA with an accounting and tax-preparation practice, for example, have you looked to add to your existing service menu to provide more value to and help generate more stability with clients year-round? In addition to tax planning at the end of the year, consider adding values such as monthly bookkeeping, financial statements, set-up of accounting systems, training in accounting software packages, and other related services.

2. Transform Services into Marketable Products

Bundle your knowledge into either information products such as reports, eBooks, books, audio, video or courses, which you sell at a profit without directly billing by the hour or generate income by commission through an affiliate programme, online marketing or direct mail. By distributing your knowledge via books or reports, it creates more consulting opportunities and makes you a perceived niche authority.

3. Harness Group Consulting

Creating your own intensive seminar, workshop or teleclass is another low-cost way to extend your reach and increase your income. It’s not much more work to speak to a large group of people than a small one, since you deliver the content only once, and the material you prepare can be used over and over again. Participants who like what they hear might buy your information products, and for those who just want to pick your brain, consulting is another way to grow your Six Figure Income.

4. Explore New Markets

Look into whether there are alternative markets for your consulting. Would governmental agencies — local and/or national — make good clients? Could you serve as an expert trial witness? If local, could you expand to national or international (via the net and the phone) markets?
