IT'S TIME TO WORK SMARTER

Plant helps you get more from your business: more profits, more freedom, & more happiness.

Always Ready for Coupons!

By purchasing an Always Ready for Coupons Booklet (for just $25), you'll get all discounts worth over $750 from local Columbus businesses including Plant Financial Services LLC!

Since Plant is offering a special service for the booklet promotion, you may have some questions. See the sections below for a longer description of what you'll get!

 

If you have any more questions please contact us via email or phone. We look forward to serving you!

1) Business Website Check-up: 25% off!
(Retail Value: $500)

With our Business Website Check-up service we'll take a detailed look at the nitty gritty details behind your website. Jamieson is an expert technologist and can help you turn your website from a cost-center to a profit maker! It focuses on answering two major questions:
 

  • How well is your website meeting your current goals?
     

  • What can you do online to improve your business?

How well is your website meeting your current goals?

We'll start with an Audit of your current site. An audit is a deep-dive that looks behind-the-scenes of your website.

We often see business websites that aren't being found on search engines. Don't allow yours to be one of them!

In addition to the audit, you'll get Analytics Tools set up so you can see how many people are seeing your website on the major search engines: Google, Bing, & Yahoo, how many page views you're getting, and how many potential customers reach your website.

Finally, with the audit, you'll get a Website Improvement Plan, which will tell you the exact steps you need to take to improve your website.

What can you do online to improve your business?

You'll receive an Online Business Strategy Session where we'll discuss long-term plans for your website and your business online. We'll discuss how you can use your website and other digital marketing tools to get more customers and even save costs!

When you change your strategy, you change your results for better or worse. With the strategy session you'll learn about all sorts of ways you can improve the results you're getting from your website!

 

Using these strategies, one of Plant's clients doubled the number of potential clients who reached their website!

2) Personal Finance Check-up: 25% off!
(Retail Value: $500)

With our Personal Finance Check-up service we'll take a detailed look at your personal finances. Jamieson believes that seeing your personal finances at a high-level can help you make better decisions.

This service does not include investment advice. This is a review and analysis of your current personal finances at a fixed-fee. Plant doesn't have an interest in selling you any financial products (like insurance), so there will be no pressure to buy anything else.

Just like our other offer for the Always Ready for Coupon Booklet, this service focuses on answering some questions:
 

  • What does your spending and earning look like over time?
     

  • What is your current net worth?
     

  • How will your net worth change over time, assuming it grows like it has in the past?

What does your spending and earning look like over time?

We'll start with deep-dive into your current spending and earning habits. With a judgment-free review you can see the big picture about how your money comes and goes.

You'll get a personal income statement, a profit-and-loss statement for your personal finances. Since some months you'll spend more and earn more than others, it's important to see the data over time so you can see broader trends.

What is your current net worth?

Your net worth is the current value of everything you own minus everything you owe. Net worth is a good measure of how close you are to being able to retire based on different spending levels. 

To reach this number we'll gather all of your assets (what you own) and liabilities (what you owe). Often we'll be able to see how this number is changing over time which leads us to the final question this service aims to answer!

How will your net worth change over time, assuming it grows like it has in the past?

 

With historical data, we can make some educated guesses about what the future will look like. Rather than viewing this as a crystal ball, you can think of this as a plan with milestones. If your situation changes, then you might do better than what the numbers predict. You might also decide that you want to change your spending and saving to enjoy your earning sooner rather than later.

 

This is about getting a realistic view of where you're going based on the data. If that destination isn't what you'd like it to be, then you'll be in the driver's seat and can make changes to improve.

Plant wants you to make good decisions early so you can avoid tough decisions later. Please contact us via email or phone if you have any questions!

THE PLANT GROWTH PROCESS

Plant developed a proprietary process that transforms your business into a profit-machine, by systematically improving each area of the business.

 

While each service offered is necessary, it can be beneficial to choose specific services that will benefit your company in the short-term.

Stage 1: Understand 

One-size does not fit all when it comes to business.

Your business lives in a unique environment and the first step to getting more out of the business is to understand on the deepest levels how your business works.

It might come as a shock, but a business that's survived for several years is incredibly complex, even in seemingly mundane enterprises. Understanding this deep complexity allows us to drive the best results that continue to perform over time.

Services in this stage might include:​

Stage 2: Quantify & Clarify

After initial setup services, it's time to quantify and clarify the story told by the data.

This deeper analysis generates insights about what's working well and what isn't. It wouldn't be surprising to find, as Joseph M. Juran popularized, activities starkly contrasted between the "vital few and the trivial many."

We're aiming to eliminate low-value activities or convert them to high-value activities in all areas of the business. In the words of Brian Tracy: "One of the very worst uses of time is to do something very well that need not to be done at all.”

 

Steps in this stage might include the following:​

MARKETING PLAN DEVELOPMENT ($$$)
BUSINESS PLAN DEVELOPMENT ($$$)

Stage 3: Optimize & Innovate

Optimization and innovation is about continuously improving the organization's ability to serve its current clients as well as potential clients. Now that the business is generating detailed data, we can make strategic moves to enhance the business's long-term viability.

Steps in this stage might include the following:​

CUSTOM WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT ($$$)
MARKETING CONSULTING ($$$)
Strategy CONSULTING ($$$)
