Helping Owner-Run Businesses to get more sales, more customers and more profit

Rachel Foord our business coach specialising in owner-run businesses will work with you to implement a proven marketing and sales system to take your business from where you are now to where you want to be.

Here's how it works

What's the Problem?

Most businesses are started by a Practitioner.

You are good at what you do, you love doing it, and you’ve turned it into a business. You work really hard, with full days and always lots to do. 

But too many small business owners are too busy doing their job to have the time to grow their business. They get stuck.

Once you set out to grow your business, you’re no longer an accountant, an electrician, an architect or a bookkeeper (or whatever it is that you do). Instead, at least for a chunk of time every day you need to become a marketer of your business.

You have to become a marketer because the fate of your business – and the lifestyle of you and your family – lies in your ability to market what you do really effectively.

FACT: The money in your business isn’t in your product or your service. It’s in the marketing and selling of your product or service.

You see, as the owner of a business that you want to grow and scale, your focus HAS to move from doing the everyday work to producing the sales and revenue needed to get you where you want to be.


The Marketing and Sales System

It works fast

When implemented properly, you will see immediate trackable results within just a few weeks.

It's low cost

In many cases, little or no additional marketing budget is required.

It's timeless and scaleable

This is a SYSTEM that will continue to work for many years to come, and works for any size of business.

Small Business Mentoring - How Does it Work?

The Small Business Marketing and Sales System consists of five structured parts but as with anything, if you want to do it properly, you get help.

To make real progress, to achieve proper success, in your business, you need help, guidance and advice from someone who’s been there and done it. From someone who is an expert, with a proven system, that will get you where you want to be.

Our Marketing and Sales System, comes with a small business mentor, working alongside you, 1:1 to implement it effectively in your business.

You’ll work with me, Rachel, your own, dedicated, small business coach who will get to know you and your business intimately.

We’ll speak regularly, usually once every two weeks, either on the phone or, preferably, via Zoom video call and usually on the same day/time so it becomes part of your routine.

You’ll agree 1 or 2 specific actions at the end of every call and I will keep you accountable.

At the beginning of each call we will review your Scorecard, your numbers and your progress – because the focus is always on your results and the cracking of rhythmic acquisition.

I will steer you through The Marketing & Sales System and you should expect it to take 12 – 18 months to go fully through the first ‘Stabilise’ circuit.

In most cases tangible results begin to emerge within your second or third month and it’s not uncommon for your monthly investment to be ‘paying for itself’ from increased revenue by Month 3.

Your Investment

I am surprisingly affordable and will cost you just £399 + VAT per month.

It is all about:

  • Cracking the rhythmic acquisition of customers
  • Getting your cash register ringing
  • Giving you a pay rise every few months
  • Fixing the big things so you build the business you deserve and desire

In short, as your Coach I will implement The Marketing & Sales System in your business, with you.

The Verve Difference.

We will hold you accountable, make sure you never get stuck and help you implement the system properly so you get the results YOU want. There is no woo-woo here.

We will just implement the System. In your business. With you. And it will change everything for you. Forever.

Is The System For You?

Answer the following questions honestly and you will know:

  • To acheive the goals you have for your business, do you need more customers than you are currently getting?
  • Are there occasions when you find yourself wondering where the next customer is coming from?
  • Are you sometimes overworked and overwhelmed with all the small stuff?
  • Are you trading time for money and not earning your true value?
  • If you look back over the last 12 or 18 months, is there a pattern of feast or famine when it comes to revenue and getting new customers?
  • Do you struggle each week to focus on the big-yielding, revenue producing work?
  • Do you sometimes not know what to do next to move your business forward?
  • Are there competitors who are not as good as you but appear to me more successful and you are losing business to them?
  • Do you sometimes wish you had an expert to talk to and bounce ideas off?

If you answered YES to any of the above it is a symptom that you’re too busy reacting, working ‘in’ your business, so you never get enough time to work ‘on’ your business.

That’s a fatal mistake and experience has taught me that it’s almost impossible to make the changes needed to escape those challenges without an expert coach alongside you.
