Why recreate the wheel? Start, grow or scale your practice and profits using our proven tools and templates

We've built a complete consulting success system and network exclusively for small business marketing consultants, coaches, and agencies.


About the network

The Duct Tape Marketing Consultant Network is a community of over 150 consultants, coaches and agencies from all over the world who constantly learn from each other, create new tools and processes, connect with new people, build invaluable, lasting relationships, and grow their practices far more profitably by joining together to support each other. 

The wins and results speak for themselves


Generate more ideal client leads with our tested marketing funnels.

We've built a series of lead generation funnels for our members to use including landing pages, lead capture tools, and follow-up nurture series emails. Even if you were to build these for yourself the time you save plugging our tools in means you have more time to start working with your new clients.

Use our proven system to build long-term retainer engagements.

On day one you'll have access to our repeatable marketing system that allows you build long-term retainer engagements using your tools and partner providers who have been trained specifically to work with members of our network and install elements of your new marketing system.

Join our community of like-minded consultants and you'll never have to go at it alone.

Creating a business without the need for overhead is one of the promises of our business model, but going it alone can get tough at times. Imagine having a network to collaborate with, train with, and network with. It's the number one reason people stay in our network for years.

Create long-term coaching retainer clients with our Certified Marketing Manager Program

We've built an exclusive online training and coaching program that our network members use to generate hybrid coaching and training program aimed at business owners who need help building a marketing action plan but also want to level-up and train members of their internal team. It's the best of both worlds and it's an innovation that's only available to members of the Duct Tape Marketing Consultant Network.   Find out more here
