You should be able to realize theseSignificant Money Savings whether utilizing independent Virtual Consultants and/or VirtualConsultants from a Virtual Consulting Firm, namely:1) You Save Money on Travel and Living ExpensesBy utilizing Virtual Consultants who work remotely/virtually from wherever in the world they happento be, you dont have to pay all of the travel and living expenses generally if you or the consultantrequires that they work at your site/facilities, you know?These travel and living expenses, you save by utilizing Virtual Consultants, may include any to allof the following:* Airfare* Rental cars* Hotels* Meals* Per Diems* Etc.And some "traditional consultants" will even bill you for all of the time they spend traveling to/fromyour site and their "home/base", you know?All of these travel and living expenses can really mount up when you have to fly each consultant inand out to your site(s) every week for potentially months on end!, you know?
  2. 2. Virtual Consultants provide you their consulting services remotely/virtually. This means you dontincur any of these types of travel and living expenses by utilizing Virtual Consulting, you see?So ...How much money would it immediately save you if you didnt have to pay all of these travel andliving expenses for each/all of the consultants you may wish to engage to help you satisfy yourbusiness needs?2) You Save Money on FacilitiesVirtual Consultants work from their own offices, homes and/or wherever they happen to be.Therefore, you do not have to provide facilities, e.g. offices, conference rooms, telephones, etc. forany of the Virtual Consultants you utilize, you know?How much money might you save by not having to provide the facilities for each/all of theconsultants you may engage to help you satisfy your business needs?3) You Save Money on Computer and Office EquipmentVirtual Consultants use their own computers and office equipment to perform their consultingservices for you.Therefore, you do not have to provide additional computer or office equipment for any of theVirtual Consultants you utilize to use, which a traditional consultant would likely need to use whileworking at your site. Further, none of your staff has to spend their time setting up, configuringand/or cleaning up computers and/or networks just for your consultants to use at your site, youknow?How much money would you also save by not having to provide and manage all of the additionalcomputers, networks and office equipment for each/all of the consultants you may engage to helpyou satisfy all of your consulting needs?The next two (2) Money Saving items, below, are additional ways in which You may Save MoreMoney by utilizing Virtual Consulting and Virtual Consultants versus having to recruit, hire, employand your own employees to provide these services, complete these projects and/or tasks to satisfyyour same business needs, namely:4) You Save Money on your Human ResourcesWhy have to carry employees on your payroll all the time, when you may only need their particularskills, talents, and/or experience for particular tasks, projects and/or part of the time?Why not just pay for the resources with the skills, talents, and/or experiences you need just whenyou need them, e.g. to complete a particular task or project?
  3. 3. Virtual Consulting provides you with with access to a "Just In Time (JIT)" flexible workforce. Youcan engage just the Virtual Consultants that you need and just when you need them to completeyour particular tasks and projects. These resources then dont cost you anything when you arentusing / dont need them!, you know?Further, by utilizing Virtual Consultants, you dont have to pay all of costs associated withproviding all of the benefits that you would have to when employing your own full time employees,you know?So ...How much money would you also save by utilizing Virtual Consultants and not having to carry allof the employees on your payroll all the time, from whom you may only need their particular skills,talents, and/or experience for particular tasks, projects and/or part of the time?5) You Save Money on Recruiting and HiringHaving access to this type of flexible workforce of Virtual Consultants also allows your business toSave Money by being able to more efficiently and effectively "ramp up" or "scale back" yourhuman resources with all of the "ebbs" and "flows" of your business, you know?You dont have to incure all of the additional costs of posting jobs, recruiting candidates, hiring andtraining new employees to address seasonal variations in your business, new projects and/orunexpected increases in your business that may not last forever, right?You may quickly and easily engage all of the Virtual Consultants to more efficiently and effectivelymatch your human resources with your business needs at any time! and Save Money in theprocess, you know?The final, for now, two (2) Money Saving items, below, are additional ways in which You may Saveeven More Money by engaging a Virtual Consulting Firm who provides all of the VirtualConsultants and Virtual Consulting services to satisfy your business needs, versus having torecruit, hire, employ and your own employees to provide these services and satisfy these samebusiness needs, namely:6) You Save Money finding the Right Resource for the "Job"Do you realize how much time, effort and money it costs you to find the right person tosuccessfully perform a particular "job" / complete a particular project or task?It has been my experience as both a corporate hiring manager and as the Principal of a consultingfirm, that the Pareto principle, more commonly known as the 80/20 Rule, applies in thesesituations as well! This means that for every position for which you are trying to hire an employeeor find the right consultant, and in each phase of this process, only 20% of the people youinterview or hire/engage will be the right person for that job or task. That means that you are likelyto hire/engage up to five (5) different people before you find the right/best person for that job ortask. Spending all of this time and effort to find this one (1) right person may be very timeconsuming and very costly!, you know? And you have to start all over with this whole process
  4. 4. each time you need to replace someone for whatever reason, you know?You may avoid all of this lost time, effort and these costs by employing a Virtual Consulting Firmthat takes care of all of that for you! :) A good Virtual Consulting Firm will find the right person foreach job, task or project for you!
