A business development consultant is a person or company that helps new business owners create their businesses. In addition to helping owners with the creation of their business, they might also assist them in the day-to-day operations. Some of the tasks completed by this individual are business start-up, marketing strategy development, brand marketing, writing and editing copy, client development and deal closing.

Consultants often help with business start-ups. They might assist with items such as start-up budgets, business plans, and any other items that might be necessary to get a fledgling business off the ground. Their relationship with the new business might end there after having just covered the basics, or it might continue on to other activities.


Development of a marketing strategy is another area covered by a business development consultant. Many businesses struggle with devising ways to effectively market their business to prospective clients. A consultant can use his or her knowledge and expertise to guide the business owner in creating a marketing plan that will generate a great deal of new business.

Business development consultancy can include mentoring which is the process where an experienced or more knowledgeable member of staff helps to guide a less experienced or knowledgeable member of staff by training, teaching etc. The mentor can be older or younger than the person they are mentoring (mentree), it's the experience and knowledge that is important for the mentoring relationship.
