Level Up Your Client Management
A personalised plan to transform your overflowing client management processes from manual and scattergun into a straightforward system that saves you time and energy, and makes life simpler for you and your clients.
Level Up Your Client Management is for 1 to 1 service providers who sell their services online (even if you deliver the service offline).
You’re an expert at what you do, but you never quite feel on top of your 1 to 1 client management and service delivery.
Whether it’s your onboarding processes, struggles while delivering to your clients or a lack of follow-up, it’s starting to get in the way of your business.
Maybe all your client information and communications live in your inbox and/or documents… or even your head.
Perhaps you aren’t sure when you last followed up with your promising potential clients.
You don’t have a good way of wrapping up with clients.
You might have signed up for a CRM but don’t know how to make the most of it. Or maybe you’ve abandoned it.
You’d love to hire some help, but have no idea which parts of your process you could hand over.
Handling client management takes up more headspace than it should. You know there must be a more efficient way that would feel easier, save time and show your clients that they’re in good hands.
It feels like your business is held together with sticky tape and string, and that’s a pretty stressful place to be.
So, do you carry on making-do? Do you stop selling your service? Do you hire a virtual assistant to untangle it for you over several months?
Or do you spend 1 hour with me and walk away with a personalised Streamlined Client Management Plan that will make your business feel like it’s made of solid bricks and mortar?
Level Up Your Client Management will stop you feeling like your head is about to explode with managing your 1 to 1 clients.
And it will save you time and ease your mental load too – without first having to spend lots of time learning new systems.
I’ve worked as an editor and virtual assistant for the last 17 years, helping business owners and publishers to make improvements and create consistency across their words and their businesses.
I’ve seen so many business owners with incredible skills, who could easily grow their business through having more efficient client systems.
So I created Level Up Your Client Management to help you optimise how you handle your 1 to 1 client management, taking away the headache of wondering if you’re getting everything done.
I can highly recommend Jo for her outstanding client management skills. She gave me clear and valuable advice on how to improve and streamline my client management workflows and offered software solutions to help with my current client onboarding, follow up and invoicing.

Most of the tweaks Jo suggested took me very little time to implement and have made a huge difference already. She’s very knowledgeable about different systems and really takes the time to understand your current process.

I knew the experience I wanted my customers to have, but I had no idea how to put it together… until Jo started asking me questions. She made it all seem so easy!

What happens next?
After receiving your Streamlined Client Management plan, you have 3 options to implement it:
Do It Yourself
You can take your plan and implement it yourself. If you choose this option, I’ll follow up with a 1-month accountability check-in to make sure everything is going smoothly for you.
Done With You
If you want to get stuck in and implement the plan yourself, but feel unsure of any new software or just want someone there to ask questions as you go, then this option is for you.
We’ll discuss the best way I can support you and decide on a timescale that works for you.
There’s no extra charge for this.
Done For You
I can implement your plan for you if you prefer, subject to my availability (or recommend someone else who can help).
I’ll provide a quote based on my recommendations in your plan.
You’re also welcome to ask another service provider to implement your plan for you.
You don’t have to decide until after you’ve received your plan, and I’m happy to chat through your options.

How does the process work? Can I see a visual map please?
I’m so glad you asked! Click here to see a visual map of how the Level Up Your Client Management process works for you.
What if I can’t find a Consultation time to suit me or I’m in a different time zone?
If you don’t see a time to suit you in your booking email, get in touch to see what we can arrange.
Is my service too simple or too complicated for you to help me?
This isn’t about how simple or complicated your service is – it’s about how overwhelmed you feel when you’re delivering it, and whether you’re constantly worried you’re going to drop the ball. If you want to discuss your service with me and find out if Level Up Your Client Management is right for you, then please get in touch for a chat.
Do you need access to my current systems?
Usually no, but if you use an industry-specific system, access may be helpful after our Consultation. You will receive instructions on how to share access securely.
Will you overcomplicate things for me?
No, my intention is always to simplify. I will make recommendations based on how you want your business to run as well as your own personality and preferences.
Will using automation or outsourcing de-personalise my service?
No, quite the opposite! By ensuring key parts of your process are standardised and automated, you’ll have more capacity to work closely with each individual client and really meet their needs, without worrying that you haven’t covered the basics. And by taking the time to focus on your process, you can see where you can do things differently to serve every client even better.
Will you just recommend systems that you’re an affiliate for?
I don’t ever want my clients to wonder if I have ulterior motives for my recommendations, so I will never provide affiliate links in your Streamlined Client Management Plan. All advice you receive will be impartial.
What happens if I need to reschedule or cancel my Consultation?
Life can get complicated so if you need to reschedule, please give me as much notice as possible. If you change your mind and would like to cancel before your Consultation, I will offer a full refund. After your Consultation, your payment is not refundable.
Please note, I will be honest during your Consultation if I think that Level Up Your Client Management is in fact not a good fit for your business after all, and refund your full fee if this is the case.
Do you offer any discounts for charities or social enterprises?
I do. Please get in touch to find out more.
