Stage 4: Ongoing Growth Partner & Scale The Client Attraction System

We deliver high-quality prospects and warm leads to you at scale and at a pace that accommodates your pre-defined growth targets.

Why Clients Choose Us

There are thousands of marketing agencies and business growth consultants in Australia, and they are all saying exactly the same thing. Here’s how we’re different and why our clients choose us:

We Understand Premium Professional Services

Our founder and growth strategist, Trent Butler, is a qualified Chartered Accountant with over 10-years experience in working across three tiers of the accounting profession (a small boutique, mid-tier and ‘big 4’ firm). He deeply appreciates how prospects choose a professional service provider and ensures your growth plan and marketing assets are prepared accordingly.

We’re Revenue Obsessed

We don’t care for vanity metrics: we track leads, sales and money in your bank. Through our easy to understand reporting, you’ll know exactly how your marketing investment is performing and how we’re tracking against pre-defined goals and budget.

Selective Partnerships

Where appropriate, we put our money where our mouth is by structuring a portion of our remuneration as contingent on achieving our pre-agreed goals. This forces us to prioritise client selection and only become involved where we’re certain we can add value and achieve a positive win/win outcome. 

Data-Backed Decision Making

Done correctly, marketing is far less subjective than one might think. Every decision we make with clients is well-reasoned and backed by the data we collect and show you as part of our process.

Progress In Stages

We’re conservative by nature and so believe in progressing with every client in stages. We define the goalposts in advance to de-risk your investment and so you know exactly what is going to be achieved and by when. 

Direct Point of Contact

We won’t put clueless account managers or junior staff between us and you. Every client works directly one-on-one with our founder and growth strategist Trent Butler. You’ll be working directly day-to-day with the person who is in the trenches daily and is executing growth plans for other businesses like yours.

Select Case Studies & Results

We take tremendous pride in the concrete results we deliver for our clients.

    About Trent Butler

    We’re not like other Marketing Agencies, Growth Consultants or Coaches. We’re not taking on clients at scale which results in a “churn and burn” business model.

    Rather, my approach is about no ‘BS’, honesty and transparency. Our model is to work with a smaller volume of exceptionally talented clients and let their results do the talking.

    As you’ll see, I’ve built Butler & Co with the goal of having the best-performing clients. I believe that we’re only as good as the results we deliver for our clients, and so that’s where my team and I spend the majority of our time day to day.

    Prior to commencing my entrepreneurial journey in 2018, I qualified as a Chartered Accountant and spent over 10-years working across three different firms spanning the three ‘tiers’ of the accounting profession (a small boutique, mid-tier and ‘big 4’ firm).

    I believe the real reason to grow a service business is to create genuine career advancement and progression opportunities for the team’s ‘A-Players’, whilst making the founders’ dreams a reality as part of the process. I also deeply appreciate the ‘buying journey’ of how prospects conduct their due diligence and choose a professional service provider in the modern digital world.

    We understand that as your business grows and thrives, so will ours. So let’s talk, I promise it will be a breath of fresh air.

    Do You Qualify?

    Right or wrong, we believe that the results we achieve for our clients originate from their pre-existing business success. Therefore, we only partner with clients who meet the following criteria:

    You Are Already Established

    You own or manage an established service-based business with at least a few employees. You’re profitable, with healthy cash flow and established operational processes.

    You Have Raving Fan Clients

    You have at least 10 pre-existing clients who are delighted with the outcome(s) achieved by working with you and who represent the ideal client with whom you’d like to attract more.

    You’re The Premium Option

    You are providing one to two premium services where each new client or project results in at least $5,000+ in gross income to you.

    You Have A Growth Mindset

    You have a growth mindset and you are ready to invest to grow your business. You’re doing so to make an even more positive impact and to create new personal and professional progression opportunities for both yourself and your staff/employees.
