When Paulette Childress launched Image Results in 1982, she knew her ability to strategize and create holistic business growth plans could help clients reach all new heights of success. She didn’t yet know she’d be able to take one client from $100,000 to $7.5 million in revenues in just four years or increase other clients’ earnings by $150,000 to $600,000 in a single year. Yet those are exactly the kinds of results her clients have seen and Paulette couldn’t be happier about it.
“I love when businesses succeed,” she says. “I love seeing owners who were working 14-hour days, seven days a week, be able to enjoy balance in their lives. Small business owners are very passionate about their companies – and ‘m passionate about helping them thrive.”
While the company does design logos and offers other a la carte services, their greatest strength is in developing and implementing an individualized whole-business strategy. Paulette and her team are experts at increasing sales and website traffic as well as developing brand awareness and differentiation. They have extensive experience with keywords and metadata and have helped several clients achieve the holy grail of search engine optimization: a spot on the first page of Google’s search results. They also provide a complete suite of creative and media planning services, as well as messaging development, PR assistance, and more.
“Most companies specialize in one or two areas of marketing, planning, or business development,” explains Paulette. “We offer our clients far more. We help them create a vision, then develop a strategy for reaching – and keeping – customers. The first step is to understand the current challenges and problems they face, and then we rapidly deliver transformative solutions which quickly increase their profitability.”
In addition to other successes, Paulette has helped clients win awards, increase annual sales by as much as $4M, and fund expense reductions and new revenues that allowed them to expand or build whole new facilities.
“We always evaluate a company’s operations to see where they can be more efficient,” Paulette explains. “It’s not unusual for me to find a client savings that more than pay for my services. Last week, I helped a client make one vendor change that will save them $6,000 a year. We also discovered and implemented a collections process that allowed clients to recoup more than $100,000 in past-due revenues within six months.”
One of Paulette’s greatest passions is collaborating with leaders to help them find their potential and then making it a reality. In addition to other services, she offers executive and business coaching and even earned her DISC certification so that she could help leaders and teams more effectively.
“We really are about helping clients build their businesses from the inside out.” she says. “We believe that if you know yourself, you can grow yourself. We’re here to help you through that process – and to make your growth everything you want it to be.”
