Prolific Advice, an innovative new initiative created by Prolific North is going through its final testing phase and will be commencing in the next few days. Specifically developed for owners and managers of creative and media companies, Prolific Advice will be providing online professional advice and opinion at no initial charge.
The service is being brought to fruition together with three media-savvy professional and financial services partners who have an established interest in and are keen to help SMEs and owner-managers across Prolific North’s readership to develop their businesses.
The three partners are:
Prolific Advice will enable companies to submit online confidential enquiries at no charge across a wide and diverse range of issues spanning tax and audit, employment, IP, private equity and business angels, commercial loans, finance and grants, keyman insurance and risk management and, as the business flourishes, company sales, MBOs and… wealth management.
Enquiries will be submitted privately and anonymously and all subsequent communication will be treated confidentially between the company concerned and the relevant adviser.
Our partners will respond and offer guidance via email enquiries at no charge – within reason! Clearly, should a company wish to subsequently take forward the particular adviser’s advice and engage that firm, that would then be a matter to be agreed between the company and the firm.
However, Prolific North and our three partners believe many enquiries can and will be satisfied via simple, helpful and timely online replies.
The rationale behind this initiative is straightforward and we believe mutually supportive.
Our three partners, each of whom already has a significant client base among creative and media companies, are keen to develop their activities and penetration in what is Prolific North’s core territory and in turn Prolific North views this new initiative as yet another way we hope we are engaging our readers and delivering a growing range of value-added services.
Other ongoing Prolific North initiatives include our ground-breaking new Postgraduate Certificate in Digital Communications Management with MMU, our international research project and our imminent Top 50 Northern PR Agencies feature.
