Jumpstart your projects and ideas with Startup Sleuth's Quick Start Package. 

The Quick Start package has the information and insights you need to move from thinking to action; clueless to knowledgeable.

The Quick Start package is perfect for startups, serial entrepreneurs, and biz owners looking to start a new project or a new service within their space. 

 

What You Get

  • 20 minute investigation session: a breakthrough, brainstorming and exploration session (via phone call) designed to get you started on your sleuthing journey by diagnosing your information needs and pinpointing the information you really need to get started. During the Investigation Session, we'll nail down exactly what kinds of information will most benefit your business, your ideas, and your products or services, and we'll decide on what topics, trends, and competitors to focus on. After the session, you will also receive a written summary of what we discussed along with a research and information strategy designed to address your needs. 
  • 1 factsheet on an industry, niche, space, market or topic of your choice covering stats, demographics, relevant analysis, trends, and forecasts.
  • 1 competitor profile covering their products, services, clients and customers, and their strategies.
  • 1 personal, customized newsletter digest on the topic of your choice. Think Skimm, but highly customized and personalized to your needs and wants.

FAQ

How Much Will It Really Cost To Work With You?

The Quick Start package is $375. That's all you will ever have to pay. There are no surprise, hidden fees at the end. Ever.

If you decide you'd like to add on additional products or services (like buying guides, slide decks, or additional competitor profiles), then I will invoice you for the additional services and products. 

How Long Will This Take?

Turn around time is usually around 2 weeks from the date of your Investigation Session. Bear in mind that all of my work is customized to your needs and requirements. I’m not in the business of selling you pre-packaged, recycled information and reports. The work I do for you is for you only. Bespoke research like this takes time.  I only take on 5 Quick Start clients at a time to ensure I have adequate time and resources to dedicate to each individual project. And if you work with me, I'll always keep you up-to-date on my progress for the duration of the project.

Can't I Just Google/Pay Someone $5/Have My Neighbor's Nephew Do It For Free?

Well, you could. But $5 researchers probably don't have access to the resources I have access to. Google can't analyze and synthesize and prioritize info like I can. Your neighbor's nephew might not know about turning info into actionable insights.

You don't have a "good enough" business, idea, product, or service, so why would you rely on "good enough" research?

If you hire me to find out what the risks are in your industry, I'm not just plugging "YOUR INDUSTRY + RISKS" into Google. I'm looking at annual reports and 10-Ks, analysts forecasts, news coverage for trending topics, reports on tangential and related industries. I'm listening to social media. I'm scouring the deep and invisible web. I'm looking behind paywalls and in databases that aren't indexed or reachable by Google or any other search engine. And when I'm done with that? I won't just dump it all into a document for you to wade through. I'll analyze and summarize and give you a final product that you can actually use. I don't just regurgitate links and facts or recycle someone else's research.

I have access to resources that provide information and insights that Google can't touch. As a former librarian turned info entrepreneur, I have the experience, expertise, and training to find the information you need quickly and to turn that information around into valuable, shareable, and actionable analyses and reports.

What If You Don't Find Anything?

While I can’t make any promises or guarantees about what I will or will not find, it’s very, very rare to come up completely empty.

Also, bear in mind that sometimes no answer is an answer. Sometimes it’s not what you find, it’s what you don’t find. Lack of information can be just as telling as a plethora of information.

I will never, ever say “Hey, didn’t find anything. Have a good day!” I’ll always analyze our results and give suggestions for further inquiry and exploration. In most cases, alternative information can be provided. I’ll never leave you empty handed or with a one word answer.

The one promise I can make is that the information I provide to you is as valuable to me as it is to you.
