FOUNDATIONS FAQS

How do I know if Foundations is right for me?

If you’re at all questioning whether your brand or website (or both) truly reflects you, your firm and the clients you want to work with, then Foundations is for you. You want your marketing to be sending the right messages to the right people so you can build the best firm for you. By starting with your goals session and moving onto your brand and website, you’ll start to get clarity on how to craft your marketing so it appeals to only those clients you love working with which will help you work towards both your personal and business goals.

How long will the workshop take to complete?

Your sessions will take around 10 weeks to complete in total. This includes your onboarding session, your four core sessions (Goals, Brand, Website, Plan) and your review and decision session. You’ll have one session every 2 weeks.

Can I move through the workshop quicker?

For accountants at “Mastery” level (a larger firm, more complexity, and a proven track record of taking action quickly), you have the option of doing 1 session per week. This requires you to complete your homework on deadline each time, and show up for all sessions. If any of these deadlines aren’t kept, we’ll move your sessions to every other week.

Although it seems appealing to do these sessions quickly, we don’t recommend this. The feedback from clients who have completed it is you need time in between sessions to process everything you’ve gone through in the session and to do your homework. This is why Foundations is crafted to leave 2 weeks between each session.


null
What do I need to commit to from my side?

You will be given homework at the end of each session and you do need to complete it ahead of your next session. Homework typically involves reading 2-3 blogs and recording 3-5 videos to share your thoughts on anything we need to know ahead of the session. This means we can use the 1.5 hours in the actual session to dig deeper into the content you’ve shared with us and you’ll get more out of the workshop.


null
What happens if I don't do my homework?

Your upcoming session will be rescheduled and your workshop will take you longer to complete.

I need a new website. Can I skip straight to that session?

Skipping sessions doesn’t actually help you get what you want (for example, a new website) faster. Before we can write content and design your website, we need to first understand your client journey and how you want a prospect to move through your website. And in order to understand the journey, we need to understand your brand (including your firm’s values and who you work with). And your brand is directly linked to the goals you have for yourself and your firm. This is why you need ALL sessions of Foundations, whether your next step is a website build or a rebrand or something else!

Going through all the Foundations sessions also protects you from signing up to a project at the wrong time. You may be convinced a new website is what you need, but there may be branding or content work which needs done first. Together we’ll agree what you most want and need, and all the sessions together show you that.

I need a new brand. Can I skip straight to that session?

Skipping sessions doesn’t actually help you get what you want (for example, a rebrand or a new brand) faster. Before we can help design the visuals of a brand which fully reflects your firm, we need to understand your firm’s values, who you work with, the process you follow, and the goals you have. This is why you need ALL sessions of Foundations, whether your next step is a rebrand or a website or something else!

Going through all the Foundations sessions also protects you from signing up to a project at the wrong time. You may be convinced your brand only needs a slight change, only to discover there are deeper changes to make. Together we’ll agree what you most want and need, and all the sessions together show you that.
