Gerd LeonhardThe Futures Agency Founder & CEO
I can highly recommend Matt for any startup or business looking to increase sales and efficiency while building a sustainable long term strategy for the company.
Stuart SchultzBeautyRX CEO
After working with Matt for almost 2 years, I can definitely say having him on my team and his insight and perspective into new and unique growth strategies and business models was incredibly valuable for JudoLaunch. I highly recommend working with him, either as an advisor or consultant.
Chris RawlingsJudolaunch Co-Founder & CEO
Matt’s been super helpful the past 2.5 years as we’ve struggled to grow AiHello. Between the business, product and marketing help and advice and his expertise and connections/introductions in the Amazon space, we’d never have gotten to where we are at today without him. I highly recommend working with him.

I was particularly impressed by Matt’s ability to push my way of thinking, expand our sales’ strategies, and utilize creative tools to tackle the challenges we faced. Matt genuinely cares about the mental health of founders and is invested in their success. I highly recommend working with Matt; he would be a great asset to any startup.
Raffi KayatBorderless Founder & CEO
I’ve been working with Matt for some time now to refine our pitch deck for our Series A, in addition to consulting him on marketing, user acquisition/activation, business strategy and app monetization going forward. Every call has been invaluable. Can’t recommend him enough.

STARTUP & BUSINESS CONSULTINGFrequently Asked Questions

https://mattward.io/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/image_illustrations_01.png
01
Can you really help me grow my business?

Yes.

I have never met a startup or business I couldn’t help with aligning strategy and marketing to achieve faster, more scalable growth (nearly always without paid ads).

There are innumerable ways to grow a business and increase revenues, everything from acquiring more customers and reducing churn to tapping into additional revenue streams and improving your upsells and LTV.

And the strategy and best approach all depends on you and your unique business.

So, let’s work together to craft your tailored growth plan.

02
What industries do you specialize in?

In addition to a deep background in ecommerce & CPG, media & podcasting, B2B SaaS, consumer and climate tech, I work with numerous startups & companies in retail, B2B, healthtech, and Fintech/blockchain sectors (from early-stage to at-scale corporates) with services such as:

  • Development of Growth Marketing Plans
  • Strategic Business Development & Planning
  • Valuation & Fundraising Strategy
  • Leadership & Founder Coaching
  • Company Branding & Positioning
  • Business Model Innovation & Iteration
03
Do I really need a business coach?

If you have to ask, you already know. Here’s an in-depth article on the topic and why CEOs (and especially startup founders) should absolutely have a business coach, at least those interested in growing faster, building bigger and avoiding the common pitfalls of startups & leadership like burnout, overwhelm and failure to scale.

In summary: “If you’ve got a dream and it doesn’t require a team, you probably aren’t dreaming big enough!”

04
Can you help me with my pitch deck?

Absolutely!

Thanks to working with and interviewing hundreds of VCs and angel investors and making several investments myself, I know exactly what to put (and not put) in your pitch deck and presentation. Let’s refine your pitch together and create your killer pitch deck that investors & VCs can’t ignore.

NOTE: This is also available as a done-for-you service as well if you prefer.

Rather do this yourself and practice later with me? That’s fine too. Here’s a free guide to help you get started.

05
Can you help me with my business plan?

Yes, although traditional business plans are a bit outdated in my opinion.

Instead, together we’ll craft your tailored business one-pager outlining all critical aspects of your business & marketing strategy and your business’ roadmap.

In a sense, we cut to the core of what it takes to build your company into something great – all in one page.

Interested? Be sure to reach out today as my capacity is limited. Or, just send me an email: matt@mattward.io

06
What does working together look like?

Strategic Consulting Clients:

You need help, I deliver. Give me your goals and requirements and get done-for-you, proven help on everything from crafting pitch decks and marketing funnels to developing business and growth marketing plans to fuel your business’ future success.

Business Coaching Clients:

If we decide to work together, I usually like to have a minimum commitment with coachees because:

  • I only want to work with founders & CEOs who are serious about success and the process.
  • It typically takes a little while to hit our stride and for you to truly see just how impactful the sessions and changes can be.

If you are willing to commit to building something great and putting in the work to make it happen, I am here to help!

Apply for one of my limited spots here or just send me an email: matt@mattward.io

07
How much does it cost to work together?

My fees depend on the type of company I’m working with and the capacity at which I’m retained. That is why it is definitely worth reaching out. We can almost always find a solution that fits your company’s stage of development and needs and helps you hit your ambitious business goals.

And fees are pretty relative when we’re able to 10x your growth & results – especially when it leads to you working less in the process.
