Straight Talk Consulting

We take companies from product market fit

to scalable and repeatable growth.

Welcome!

Welcome to Straight Talk Consulting, we are a business consultancy that gets our hands dirty.

We work with organisations to achieve product market fit before transitioning into scalable and repeatable growth. 

In our Media section you will find practical and actionable advice on the key issues founders and their teams face when getting started, achieving market fit and scaling a company.

Aren’t you just a marketing agency?

Thats a great question. Although we do have the ability to perform many of the services you would expect from a marketing agency the answer is “no”.

The unique offering of Straight Talk is our experience and knowledge of the exact steps companies need to take in order to transition from market fit into scalable and repeatable growth.

This means we take a much wider view and oversee work in marketing, operations, sales and analytics to name a few.

Another key difference of Straight Talk is once we implement the necessary processes, we will train your team to take over. You will not be reliant on us forever and will have the in-house knowledge to continue without us.

Who we have worked with

Testimonials

Straight Talk is a growth consultancy. This means different things to different companies, but for SecondWrite, it has meant tailored tactical advice on business operations multiple times per week. Unlike advisors, whom you interact with monthly, StraightTalk consultants help by being involved in the day-to-day.

I think of the StraightTalk folks as members of our company who also have a knowledge of how many other startups have solved problems similar to ours.

Straight Talk have helped us with everything from: developing new investor & customer presentations, creating a lead generation process, a sales pipeline, discovering customer personas, collecting customer success data, new product definition and launch, long-term funding strategies and overhauling our financials
