The Boutique

How To Start, Scale, And Sell A Professional Services Firm

By: Greg Alexander

What is a boutique? A boutique is a professional services firm past the start-up stage but prescale. Examples can be found in consulting, marketing and advertising, IT services, etc. It’s basically anyone who sells their expertise.

There are 1,465,900 boutiques. This book is for them. In The Boutique, Greg Alexander explains how to properly scale your business. Selling a service can be difficult with the millions of other experts, but Greg provides real-world examples and a guide on how to build your Boutique the right way.

It is about what firms at scale do. It is about what boutiques need to do to scale. And this knowledge gap between those at scale, and those not at scale, makes all the difference.

There is about $2 trillion spent per year on professional services. Those at scale capture most of it. If you want a bigger piece of the pie, you must scale.

We are in the golden era of boutiques. The business models of your clients are being disrupted. This makes it virtually impossible for them to have all the required expertise in-house. They are looking for external expertise. They have big budgets to spend. Clients are buying from boutiques in record numbers.
