Last week, we had a great conversation with a local consultant. She knew she needed extra resources, but she replied with the line you might sympathise with: “I just don’t have the budget for it right now.”
To which we replied, “No worries! You don’t need it.” We could tell she was curious to know more and we predict you might be, too.
If you’re a trainer, consultant, HR manager, recruiter or even business owner, stay close.
See, the lovely consultant we were speaking with, acknowledged she needed help, but money was the barrier. It usually is. It’s like a chicken or the egg-type scenario. She required resources to grow, but she couldn’t bring herself to invest without additional revenue.
We’re going to tell you what we showed her.
Tick’s training resources don’t have to cost you.
Let us explain.
> Sell the profiles individually
Are you a trainer or consultant? Is your job going into businesses to improve their culture, revenue and impact? You may have systems already in place that you already use. By also integrating Tick, you can tailor your advice, knowing the personality traits of the group you’re working with. This means better results for the client which, in most instances, they’ll be happy to pay for. They want results.
> Build it into your processes
Who benefits from your team producing better work? You, yes. But your own clients as well. If you’re a business who positions its products and services based on talent, Tick’s personality profiling test can be a pre-cursor to hiring. Increase your prices slightly to cover recruitment costs.
> New employee application
Do you manage a large team of employees? Are you experiencing high turnover? First, check out our recent article on reducing employee turnover. This will inadvertently save you operational costs. You could introduce mandatory personality testing into your hiring procedure.
It could be something as simple as including this in job advertisements: “All candidates who make it to the final round will be required to complete a personality test. It will cost approximately $30.”
You’ll find out who’s serious about working for you, as well as cover the costs of the test.
> Paid seminars & workshops
Another creative way to angle this is planning seminars and workshops throughout the year, both for your employees and clients. You can assign a small ticket fee in exchange for networking, guest speakers, and learning resources, like Tick’s personality tests.

It’s a win-win for you and your clients.
