“We’ve fixed the “small things” so you don’t have to”- Adejoke Adekunle, Founder of Oddience
What if the small things you ignored are needed for your quantum leap in your profession? Or what you call the “high-pressure and difficult to navigate” moments in your career are already man-made solutions?
One of the finest approaches for every professional to attain excellent performance with their clients is the ability to manage stress.
Every consulting business has been examined to thrive on relationships. That’s why Adejoke Adekunle has built a platform called Oddience, a software for consultants to help manage their business. Oddience is for professionals who want to or have already run their own freelancing or consulting business.
If the connections professionals have built with their prospects and clients determine how successful their business will operate. Then, the goal at Oddience is to help kill the administrative work. Professionals reportedly spend over 40% of their time carrying out administrative tasks such as invoicing, chasing payments, drafting and sending contracts, taking meeting notes etc.
By minimizing time spent on admin work, professionals, can focus more on things that matter, such as their personal/business brands and building stronger relationships with their clients.
Business consultants are often known to stitch multiple tools together to get booked for a meeting, get paid, and host the meeting. Of course, they also need a website to talk about themselves and showcase their work for potential customers to get excited about working with them. But now, the Oddience platform is here to help streamline all those activities by allowing you to set up your own virtual, fully functional office in minutes.
The game-changer for every professional is here to help manage their consulting business in one place. Today, the platform gives users an instant business page and allows clients to schedule appointments with consultants and pay you from any country. As a professional, you do not need an extra tool like Zoom or Google Meet to join meetings with your clients.
Adejoke Adekunle oversees the product vision. She works with the entire team to implement new features.
She created Oddience to solve her own problem around taking in clients for her consulting business. She had internally developed a system to onboard and manage clients and could get things done because she had hired people for it.
But then, she realized that there were things she could totally automate to improve her clients’ experience and also strengthen her productivity as a consultant.
She believes consultants want to consult, and clients ascribe their perception of value from the consultant through that lens.
The Oddience platform is free to use forever. At no cost, you get a free website, can host free appointments monthly, and can add an unlimited number of clients. You only pay a 7.5% fee for every successful paid session booked.
