The Energy Consultant

What’s an Energy Consultant?

An energy consultant works with the management or owner of a business to improve the profitability of the business by reducing energy costs. Working with the top management, you can rest assured the consultant is sought after to solve problems and develop solutions.

The need for problem solvers for business problems among large and small businesses world-wide has never been greater.

Until a few years ago, the title “consultant” was more or less
limited to retired diplomats and top corporate officers. In other words, until recently, the consultant’s position was looked upon more as honorary than actual.

But that has all changed dramatically in the past few years.

The field of energy consulting continues to grow. In fact, independent consulting is one of the fastest growing businesses in the country today!

The ever-changing moods of the buyer plus the myriad of crisis situations faced by businessmen almost daily, have created this “seller’s market” for the alert consultant. How do you become an energy consultant?

Sell Yourself-

It is not necessary for you to have owned or operated a successful business to become a successful energy consultant. Nor is it imperative that you have been in management or have held a titled position. An understanding of what your industry is doing in today’s current economy will be most of the information you will need to succeed.

You will, however, need the ability to sell yourself, and an up-to-date understanding of the area in which you intend to assist others.

The first step is to make an honest evaluation of your own training and experience. You might be an ambitious go getter, retired or just looking to supplement your income, but looked upon as someone who was never recognized for your abilities.

You might be especially good in such areas as:

  •  Customer Service 
  •  Marketing
  • Scheduling 
  •  Expediting
  •  Productivity…

Start-up Considerations-

You don’t need a big, fancy executive type office in order to get started, especially if you start your consulting business on a part-time basis.

A spare bedroom, a section of the basement, or even a corner of the dining room, will do very nicely.

If you handle your own bookkeeping/filing, you will need a ledger of some kind, and a file cabinet or two. You will need a good printer if you plan to do your own correspondence.

Get the kind of file folders that hang from the sides of the file cabinet’s drawers, allowing you to position the file folder title anywhere across the top of the folder.

Then as you add clients to your file, you can keep them in order without a jumbled-looking file drawer in which you have to search for each title.

It’s also a good idea to keep your active accounts in one drawer, your “no response yet” accounts in another-

And master copies of all letters, proposals, business contact information and records in still another drawer.

You’ll also need business cards. Go to www.vistaprints.com they’ll make 250 business cards for free.

Get the Word Out-

One you’ve decided on energy consulting as the field you want to conduct business in, and have your office or working space set up, the next thing is to let people know you’re available for work and who you are.

Definitely use some common sense and applied knowledge before spending any money on advertising. Generally speaking, you will pick up some customers regardless of the problem area you specialize in, by advertising in your own area’s most popular newspaper.

However, we wouldn’t recommend much more than a small ad in the Sunday editions, unless you’re in direct mail, MLM or a garage sale consultant. See this article on what MLM, Direct Marketing is all about.

Check with your Chamber of Commerce for a list of trade and specialized business publisher’s in your area. Either pick up a sample copy of the business journal at the local newsstand or write to the publisher and ask for a sample.

Look through those catering to the type of business you want to serve. Check the editorial styles and types of advertising they carry, then select the one that corresponds with your needs.

Basically, unless a publication reaches the people you are trying to sell to; don’t advertise in it regardless of the style, quality, or advertising rates.

Your First Client-

All that’s left is meeting with the prospect, listening to their problems, and hearing what they want or need, then bring them into your online pricing platform and solve their energy problems.

This means selling yourself to the prospect assuring the business owner you know what you’re talking about, and that you can make their high energy bills a thing of the past.

You now have a plan that can lead you to success as an Independent Energy Consultant. Remember, though, no amount of research, reading, listening or investment can make you successful until you do something with them.
