Have Questions? Of Course You Do

I'M A VERY SMALL BUSINESS - DO I NEED YOUR SERVICES?

Although small businesses face the same challenges large organizations face, larger organizations can afford to staff talent necessary to overcome them. There are vendors and technicians out in the field capable of keeping systems running, websites online, and viruses at bay, but there are very few that are capable of helping small businesses create a good strategy in growing their business. Small businesses have expressed a need for a senior technology professional - with both business management and technical skills - who understands small business objectives, and can provide the guidance needed in applying them to their business goals...affordably! So yes, as long as you are using technology in your business, you deserve the same access to strategic technology talen that larger companies rely on - without adding them to your payroll.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THESE SERVICES?

This service is available to for-profit businesses with 50 or fewer employees. Companies with publicly traded stock are excluded. Membership fees are calculated based on the plan chosen by the business owner. The owner may choose to purchase the plan that best meets their needs as long as the number of employees does not exceed the number of employees covered by the chosen plan. Note: all consultation/services are contingent upon the technology advisor’s professional judgment.

DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?

There are no refunds. Monthly subscriptions are on a pro-rated basis. If you are unsatisfied with our service, you can cancel anytime. For Quick Start sessions, the 90-minute call is time invested in discussing your particular topic. For this reason, we make sure all clients begin with our 30-minute Free session to decide if our services are right for them.

DO YOU HAVE AN AFFILIATE PROGRAM?

We do not have an affiliate program. We do not partner with any manufactures, vendors, or consultants for the sake of referrals and commissions. We do have a network of manufacturers, vendors, and consultants that we recommend to our clients based on the success described by our client's previous experience. However, our recommendations are not financially driven and we recommend ALL clients to seek testimonials for all entities that are being considered.

HOW DO YOU CALCULATE YOUR PRICING?

Pricing is determined by your organization's size. In order to make the service available to as many small businesses as possible, we work virtually, so our overhead costs are lower. We can pass that savings along to our clients. You will pay a monthly fee of $75-300 per month, and there won’t be any other annual fees or services fees for you to pay. If your organization is in need for more in-depth, project specific matters that may require collaboration and workshops, your business is entitled to up to six 60-minute phone consultations per year with your executive Technology Advisor. Further services required beyond the telephone consultation will be provided at a discount of 25% from CTM's flat fee rates.

WHO SHOULD CHOOSE THE QUICK STARTER PLAN?

If you’re saying to yourself, “But I’m not quite ready to work with a technology advisor on an ongoing basis. However, I still have a few pressing technology questions that I’d like help on. What should I do?” This is the plan to use to get the help you need without the monthly commitment.
