STRATEGIC PLANNING SERVICES
BASTAZO, INC. provides you fresh ideas and strategic services to help you maximize your return on investments and opportunity, while increasing your revenues. By understanding your clients better, you can make wiser decisions and help to meet their needs upfront. We can help you with:
STRATEGIC PLANNING. You have great ideas, but no clear plan of action. We can help you sort through the clutter and help you choose the best options. We will help you develop a clear, succinct strategic plan which may eventually become the basis for a full business plan.
BUSINESS PLANS. We can help you manage by outsourcing most of your business plan development. We would work closely with you to understand your goals, visions, industry and style to help you write your entire business plan. We can even help you arrange funding and growth assistance. We will read your business plan and critique it from the viewpoint of a potential investor. This includes everything from spelling, grammar, writing style, appearance, to a detailed examination of your mission, competition, business model, operations, management team, marketing plan, competitive strategy, exit strategy, and financial projections.
MANAGEMENT CONSULTING. Fresh insights and creative thinking can help you reach your objectives faster. If you are seeking to launch a new product line, enter a new market, or if you are facing profitability concerns, competitive pressures or other issues, we'll help you analyze your options and develop a robust strategy.
INTERIM MANAGERS. Have you ever thought, if only we had a short term manager on board you would grow so much faster and avoid mistakes at crucial times? Let us provide an interim officer to take charge in the area where you need it most. We can provide an interim (full- or part-time) Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, or Chief Financial Officer and other interim mid-management needs for less money than you would pay a normal employee.
COMPETETIVE INTELLIGENCE: You know you have competitors, but you aren't sure how to characterize them. You also need an objective assessment of your strengths and weaknesses relative to theirs. We can help you research your proposed market, identify existing (and potential) competitors, and organize the results into easily understandable reports, complete with summary tables and charts.
TURNAROUND STRATEGIES. We'll work with you to develop a road map to profitability that focuses on the key strategic areas that are identified as the most critical profit drivers for your business. Then, we'll stay with you to implement the plan, providing expertise to move your enterprise to profitability. The result will be time saved and money gained with streamlined operations.
MARKETING PLANNING. Our marketing planning process starts with a market assessment, followed by identification of customer needs, and ending with a written plan for implementing your programs. We can even help you to establish marketing metrics and results tracking.
SALES FORCE MANAGEMENT. We help you attract, retain and improve your sales force's effectiveness. We help you develop your sales strategies, recruit and develop your sales team through coaching-training-motivation, and we can even help you sell products.
DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL STRATEGIES. We'll help you identify the most profitable opportunities to build new channels through resellers, independent representatives, Manufacturers, Importers, Wholesale Distributors, acquisitions or licensing and royalty arrangements. We'll identify and introduce you to prospective strategic partners, and help you structure and negotiate the best deals for productive relationships.
ADVERTISING EFFECTIVENESS. Our team will review your corporate image, advertising mediums and media buying that have a bearing on effectiveness. Our recommendations will help you improve response rates and generate more leads. Message-Media-Mass
