Are you looking to improve or set up a digital presence for your business? Nowadays and moving forward a solid digital footprint is no longer an option, but a requirement to stay competitive. There are some types of businesses that would benefit more than others from having a digital presence, but having a bad one is worse than not having one. What people find online about your business, including reviews and links to social media can have an impact on their decision to contact you or not. A bad digital presence means potential lost business and revenue.
If you are looking for guidance on where and how to start, contact Smokyfish Ltd. for a consultation. We can discuss your business and provide you with an action plan. We can come up with a custom checklist on what steps you should take and what items you need to get started or need improvement. We can also work on your behalf to help you find, filter and select the right contractor for you. Establishing a solid digital presence is a long-term project. Hiring a digital consultant first to plan out a strategy will help you save time and resources in the long-run.
Do you have any general or specific questions about a project or a potential project but feel you just need someone to point you in the right direction? Smokyfish Ltd. can jump on a call with you and go over it. Are you unsure whether to choose between BigCommerce or Shopify? Should you go with WordPress? Or maybe something came up during a current project and you need a second opinion about a specific issue?
Smokyfish Ltd. can review your questions, concerns or issues on a case-by-case basis. Maybe you have doubts that the company you are working with can deliver the project. Maybe the company you are working with is charging you extra and you want to make sure that those charges and time spent is legitimate. The company handling your project is looking out for their interests, not yours. Smokyfish Ltd. can jump in and serve as a third-party that represents YOUR interests as the client.
Not sure where to start off and what you need to get your project going? Do you have only a rough outline of your vision, but not the technical know-how on what is needed for a project to take off in the right direction?
Whether this is a first-time project or your next one, Smokyfish Ltd. has seen all the most common issues that can negatively impact IT-projects from start to finish.
Not sure if the quotes you are getting from marketing, design/development or SEO companies are over-priced? Do you want the opinion of a third-party on whether the price you are being charged is reasonable?
Smokyfish Ltd. can help review your project and any current bids/quotes from companies or freelance contractors. We can then inform you on which seem to be the most reasonable with a detailed explanation as to why.
If you are planning on investing a sizeable amount of resources into a project and allocating a large budget, a project might span several months or years. With these types of projects, there is the chance that things could go wrong either from the onset or along the way, potentially sinking the project. You may not end up recouping the costs and the project failure will set you back.
Smokyfish Ltd. provides a risk assessment report in cases where you need someone to step in and assess the situation with a fresh perspective. We provide a high level summary of our findings, but in order to do so we may require access to information only clients can provide. In certain cases, we may need additional information, such as order history, user data or other analytics.
Smokyfish Ltd. does not deliver this service on the basis of intuition. We believe that the numbers do not lie. Though there is a degree of unique insight based on experience that we bring to the table, supporting data is always provided.
Most IT-companies break down your requirements and provide a detailed Scope of Work (SOW). A situation can arise where there is disconnect between what you expected as part of the SOW, your understanding of what is happening, the language and approach used to communicate what is being done and what is actually being done. Things get lost in translation.
Smokyfish Ltd. offers a Scope of Work review, where we review the contract provided to you and raise any concerns. Though this type of review should be and is usually provided by the company you have hired, more often that not their priority is to get you to sign off and pay a deposit. This results in things being rushed, misinterpreted and under-delivered. Definitely something you do not want to happen.
Smokyfish Ltd. can help spot any issues with the SOW provided to you and provide notes on what items require attention, so that you can present that to the company you have hired for adjustment. This would enable your project to start off on the right path.
Smokyfish Ltd. usually consults individuals or companies looking to successfully complete a standalone project, but what if you are looking to optimise your internal project management workflow long-term? We embrace the kaizen concept when it comes to project management. By continuously working to improve all aspects of a process, no matter how trivial they may be or appear to be, your company can minimise expense and deliver a quality product with minimum stress.
Smokyfish Ltd. has been on both sides of the table, both as an employer and employee. We understand what you as the company is looking for and what a client’s expectations are. We also have years of experience using different applications and tools to successfully deliver projects. Examples include Slack, Jira, Trello, Asana, Podio, etc. Our Workflow Optimisation service is catered to your individual needs, but requires a long-term contract to deliver long-term results. If you are interested in learning more or have an existing problem that you would like to discuss, Smokyfish Ltd. can help. Book a consultation, let us jump on a call and discuss.
