We're the Internet dating business specialists. Courtland Brooks was started in 2005 and is a new kind of business consultancy and marketing agency. We work exclusively with Internet dating and online matchmaking companies. Occasionally we also help best-in-class service providers to approach the dating industry in an intelligent manner.
We're a team of extremely experienced Internet dating professionals who are passionate about the Internet dating business. For the price of a junior marketing manager you can access our team to advise you on strategy, help you get your branding and marketing and product right, and professionally manage media relations in a way no other agency or consultancy can.
Here's what you can expect. On the first day of engagement we'll have a 90 minute start-up call. On the call we'll get introduced and our team will ask you lots of questions. On the Friday of the first week of engagement we'll deliver an action plan for the first 90 days of engagement. That plan will then be loaded into Teamwork.com where we'll collaborate and you'll see us working directly from the plan. You'll have more visibility on our work than if we were sitting next to you in your office. Our team are a distributed workforce so we have to be extremely well organized.
As your needs change, we change, and can rotate the team. There are 29 people on the team now. We have three levels of team members on the Courtland Brooks team. Our core team have been with us 7+ years on average and do most of the work. Then we have special advisors who are specialty experts within the field of online dating. Our newest addition to our offerings is the Instant Advisory Board (IAB). The IAB is made up of former industry C level executives who can advise from an unprecedented level of expertise. We're an International team. A unique and exceptional team.
Pay for great people, not fancy offices. When you engage the Courtland Brooks team you can be sure you're paying for great people, and not expensive offices, or luscious expense accounts. We're super efficient on several levels. It would simply not be possible to bring the amazing team that we've built together into a single office at a reasonable price point. We give our team the freedom to work from wherever they want, whenever they want, on interesting projects for growth-oriented companies.
We're value-priced. For ongoing access to our unique team we charge $3k USD (or alternative currency) every 2 weeks on a 1 year basis. 3:2:1 pricing. We only work on retainer and never do project work. We like to feel like we're part of your team. This inspires us to do great work. However, you have flexibility with us. You can give us 30 days notice at any time if your circumstances change, or 15 days notice if you're less than happy with our services.
