WIC’s 10th Annual Best Practices Survey Is Live—Top 10 Reasons to Participate

Today, we launched Women in Consulting’s (WIC’s) 10th Annual Best Practices Survey.

I’ve been here for the last nine surveys; and every year, I put the insights presented to use in my business. I’d be foolish not to—hundreds of consultants, many of whom are tops in their field, share what they do from pricing to closing deals to increasing productivity and more.

If you want the results from this 10th anniversary addition, you’ll need to either participate or be a member. If you’re a member, please still participate, because the survey’s value is at its best when lots and lots and lots—did I say lots?—of people participate.

So if you’re a consultant, set aside 15 minutes—yes that’s all it takes—between now and September 9 to take the survey.

Top 10 Reasons to Take Survey

  1. You want more clients.
  2. You want to increase your annual revenue.
  3. You want to keep up with latest consulting trends and best practices.
  4. You like to learn from top consultants with seven-figure incomes.
  5. What other consultants are charging is of interest to you.
  6. You’re exploring new industries.
  7. You’re considering a new product/service offering.
  8. You’re hankering for a Flip camera or one of several other prizes.
  9. You’re a consultant. It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman, work in California or elsewhere, are a WIC member or not—if you’re a consultant, we want to hear from you.
  10. You want the results and you’re not a full or leaders network member.

Important Details

  • The survey takes 10 – 15 minutes to complete.
  • All participants who complete the survey receive the results and are entered into a drawing to win one of six prizes (whether or not they’re WIC members): a Flip camera (1 winner), a seat in any future WIC workshop (1 winner), or a seat in a future WIC webinar (4 winners).
  • The survey asks some detailed questions about your business for the August 2010 – July 2011 timeframe, so be prepared with the following information:
  • Total revenue for the past 12 months
  • Average hourly rate (if applicable)
  • Average retainer fee (if applicable)
  • Average project fee (if applicable)
  • Target hourly rate in project fees (if applicable)
  • Number of subcontractors used
  • Total amount paid to subcontractors and/or employees
  • Please pass the survey link along to other consultants—the person with the most referrals taking the survey gets to attend the member-only meeting for free, even if s/he’s not a full member!
  • Contact WIC if you have any questions or encounter any problems.
  • All information collected during the survey is confidential.
  • Survey Results

    In addition to the report that we send to all participants (an email address is required), we also present the results at a members-only meeting where we highlight insights and best practices from the survey. To attend this value-packed event, held at Quadrus Conference Center in Menlo Park on October 20, you need to join WIC as a full or leaders network member prior to the meeting.

    If you’re already a community member and would like to attend this event, upgrade to a full membership, and we’ll refund the prorated amount left on your existing membership.
