Confidence is seen as the main factor that drives success in the consultancy field. A lot of big consultancy firms who have started from scratch note that self confidence create an impression that consultants know what they are doing and this helps to build longer relations with customers. Confidence goes hand in hand with reliability. Information given to customers should be well researched and of great value to them. Experts say that if customers feel they are getting help, they will come back and bring even more customers.

For many consultants, offering reliable services can be tough especially if they are working with customers with different needs. However, successful consultancy firms advise budding consultancy service providers to always be honest with their clients and tell them what they just know.  Successful consultants need to be opinionated and every decision they make should be supported by strong facts and arguments. According to analysts in the consultancy field, it is a well thought decision based on clear facts that will give customers value for their money and more reason to come back.

The mistake a lot of consultants do is thinking that a good education and experience wins it all in this field. However analyst beg to disagree with this and in fact, a consultant who is more pragmatic and business oriented has a better chance of succeeding compared to another who isn't.  Pragmatism allows consultants to give valuable advice to clients by considering all angles. In addition to these, successful consultants agree that consultancy is a business and must be treated as such if indeed practitioners will make a living out their services.  The management of a consultancy firm should be based on rules and practices of conventional business management at all times.

A bigger part of a consultant's day's job is actually listening. A lot of customers who have worked with consultancy firms before acknowledge that it is important to work with a consultant who takes time and listens to them. In addition to this, a lot of customers say they would go for someone who is resourceful in every way possible. After all, consultancy is all about expert advice and a resourceful person is better placed to do this job very well. Successful consultancy firms also advise emerging consultants to always be team players. Developing a successful consultancy firm can take years or even decades but the surprising thing is its always the simple things that count in the end.
