    Frequently asked questions about the network

    1. What is Duct Tape Marketing?

    Well, that depends on whom you ask. For some, it’s a book, blog or podcast. For others, it’s a methodology that taps the power of a systematic approach to marketing. And still, for some, it’s a network of skilled, independent marketing professionals certified to install the Duct Tape Marketing System. Ultimately, however, it’s one of the world’s most trusted small business marketing brands.

     

    1. What is the Duct Tape Marketing Consultant Network?

    After creating the Duct Tape Marketing System and sharing that both with clients and the world online, we started to receive requests from marketing consultants everywhere. Interest in using the Duct Tape Marketing methodology and toolset led to the creation of a network of certified and trained consultants called the Duct Tape Marketing Consultant Network. Consultants become certified in the use of the Duct Tape Marketing System, gain access to a rich set of tools and participate in training, sharing and collaborating with a group of like-minded consultants and coaches.

     

    1. Who makes a good Duct Tape Consultant Network member?

    Our network is currently made up of marketing consultants, digital agencies, marketing strategists, and marketing coaches. The level of experience and background in each of these fields varies greatly, but one thing seems certain – they are people who believe in continued learning, networking, helping small business and collaborating with other coaches and consultants.  Get to know some of our current members here.

     

    1. Can I retain my current brand?

    Absolutely! We believe the Duct Tape Marketing brand will enhance your brand and add a level of trust that comes from being associated with something larger than your current brand, but in the end, the client makes the decision to work with you based on how they connect with your brand. The Duct Tape brand just adds substantial support to what you’ve already built or are building.

     

    1. Is this a franchise opportunity?

    Absolutely not! Your fees are for training, professional development and events only. We do not dictate what you sell or how you sell it and do not participate in any revenue-sharing or ongoing fees related to your work.

     

    1. What kind of marketing support do I receive?

    Our consultants enjoy the use of marketing materials and content to help them promote their business, and your business is listed in the Duct Tape Marketing Consultant Directory.  While the Duct Tape brand does not guarantee to generate leads on behalf of individual consultants, we promote the consultant network heavily in online and in-person events, organically generating leads for consultants in the network.

    1. What are the keys to my success as a marketing consultant?

    They are the same keys to success in any business – keep learning and getting better at what you do, get out from behind the computer, network and build your reputation, deliver remarkable results for your clients and let those happy clients become your lead generation engine.

    Speaking to groups of prospective clients is a key for our consultants so possessing a desire to stand up and educate in front of groups of small business owners is an essential element as well.

     

    1. Am I limited to a specific geographic territory?

    Currently, the need for what we offer is so immense we have no plans to limit consultants by geography nor plans to flood the market with any consultant willing to pay our fee. Our total focus is on building a network of consultants that view helping small business owners as a very noble calling and possess the ability and drive to produce results for their clients that are consistent with the Duct Tape brand.

     

    Because consultants and coaches today can deliver their services virtually and online there is no need to limit where they work. While some prospective consultants wonder if a competitive consultant in their community would present a challenge, our existing consultants in this situation have discovered just the opposite – having another member or two of the Duct Tape Consultant Network in their town makes it easier to spread the word and share resources.

     

    1.  Does the Duct Tape Marketing Consultant Network have an international presence?

    We are expanding internationally on a regular basis!  We currently have certified consultants around the globe in 9 different countries including the U.K., Australia, Bahrain, Vietnam, Singapore, Colombia, South Korea, Canada and the U.S.

     

    1. How does this compare to the Hubspot reseller program?

    Duct Tape Marketing and Hubspot are quite well aligned, and both programs supplement the other. In fact, we have a number of Hubspot resellers that are also members of the Duct Tape Marketing Network, and they tell us it’s a great combination.

     

    1. Can I contact some existing Duct Tape Consultants?

    You are certainly free to contact any consultant in our directory. However, while member consultants are enthusiastic supporters of the network, they are independent business owners building and running their businesses, so take that into consideration when you contact them.
