What's the difference between an advisor and a consultant?

A business advisor and consultant both provide professional guidance to organizations, but they differ in their approach and scope of work.

A business advisor typically works with companies over a long-term period, offering ongoing advice on various aspects of the business such as strategic planning, financial management, marketing, and operations. They work collaboratively with the business owner and provide recommendations based on their expertise and experience.

On the other hand, a consultant is usually brought in for a specific project or problem. They have a defined scope of work and a clear set of deliverables.

Overall, the main difference between a business advisor and a consultant is the duration of their engagement and the level of involvement they have with the client’s business. A business advisor provides ongoing guidance and support, while a consultant provides specific solutions to identified problems or challenges.

What is an “Investor Relations Expert”?

An Investor Relations Expert has a host of responsibilities, but primarily they help you manage communication between your corporate management and your investors. Their job focuses on your company’s financial community as opposed to the relations with customers or the greater public.  A great analogy is the following: have you ever asked your parents/family for money and they said “NO”?  An Investor Relations Expert helps to get you prepared BEFORE you talk to your family and ask them for capital.

How does pricing work?

The general hourly rate of UCS Advisors is $415/hour, with a minimum of (2) two hours. The Client may prepay for 10 hours of services at the rate of $360/hour (total: $3,600) or 20 hours of services at the rate of $310/hour (total: $6,200). All payments must be made prior to the initiation of any services. Payment forms accepted: credit card, Bank ACH, Venmo, PayPal, CashApp, and check.

Why do you offer a refund policy?

Simple: from one entrepreneur to another entrepreneur: we know that every dollar counts!  As a business owner, you do not have money to waste! Every penny matters… and on the flip side, why get suckered into a monthly agreement that requires a minimum of 6 months or even a year, for a service you might not even like, or rather even need.

Our 10 hour pre-pay package is a great starting point for many entrepreneurs while also giving them peace of mind. In the case that things are not the right fit, you can still get a refund.  Our goal here at UCS Advisors is to help companies be able to achieve their greatness.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Currently, we accept credit cards, Bank ACH, wire, cash, check, Venmo, Paypal, or Cashapp.

Why don't you list more of your clients' names on your website?
