WANT TO GET MORE OUT OF ASANA?

Here's the #1 thing people tell me about Asana: "I've set up Asana but don't really know if I'm doing it right. I know it can do a lot more but don't have the time to figure it all out on my own." When you work with me, I'll help you to:

1) Optimise your account: We start by setting up or optimising your team/project/task structure to make sure everything is well organised and easy to manage.

2) Maximise usage: We'll explore key features that you've missed and talk about best practices that will help you to get more out of Asana on a daily basis.

3) Improve team adoption: You don't want your teams use of Asana to slowly fizzle out. Training will help your team avoid common mistakes, follow best practices and get everyone on the same page.

4) Streamline processes: Building templates, automating tasks and integrating with 3rd party tools turns Asana into a core part of your business systems.

Paul was essential to getting us all on Asana and helping me overcome by change and decision making anxiety about switching to a new system. Further, he took the time to integrate Asana into Zapier and train me on how to use Asana/Zapier to automate important parts of our email communication process, that will save me the time of sending more than a thousand emails a year. He was very pleasant and easy to work with. Money well spent.

ASK ME ABOUT THE FOLLOWING ASANA INTEGRATIONS:

Jared Carter

After discovering Asana and researching the power of this tool, I was left in a position to figure out how to best present Asana to my team and help them transition to using this tool. Paul's assistance with developing a roll-out plan and guiding both myself and my staff through the process of setting up Asana in a way that meets our needs was invaluable. In addition, Paul provided the guidance and training to help everyone get familiar with the features and best practices of using Asana, which was a key factor in helping staff become comfortable using this tool. Paul's knowledge of Asana and ability to translate it's features into practical uses specific to his client's needs is a tremendous help and well worth the price of his services.

WHY WORK WITH ME?

I AM AN APPROVED “ASANA CERTIFIED PRO” and have worked directly with Asana to identify the best methods of implementing change to ensure Asana is successfully adopted.

WORK WITH THE “ASANA GUY”. I’ve produced hundreds of blog posts, podcasts and videos on productivity, Asana and getting more out of your tools. My videos have been viewed over 1 million times. My website now receives over 100,000 sessions per month and I have over 40,000 subscribers on my email list.

AVOID COSTLY MISTAKES. While some people like to “go it alone” first, I usually find new users don’t know what they don’t know and fall into bad habits very quickly. During our time together I can help point costly mistakes to avoid that you’ll likely miss on your own. Ultimately you’ll save time by working with me as I can fast track your learning.

HIGHLY EFFICIENT. I’ve worked with over 150 clients over the last 3 years and have customised Asana for many different types of use case and industry. I pride myself on excellent communication and being able to deliver impactful results in an efficient manner.

PROACTIVE RECOMMENDATIONS. You don’t know what you don’t know. But will be able to suggest features and integrations that you haven’t thought of.

SOLO CONSULTANT. I’m not part of an agency. I work with a limited number of clients to ensure I can deliver high value support to each and every one. Once we begin a project, you can book calls with me in advance at your convenience to ensure you have regular access to me. And because Asana don’t have a phone number, you can call me any time to get your technical questions answered (guaranteed 2-hour response time within PST office hours).

Working with Paul helped our team get Asana up and running quickly; the investment of time and effort on the front end was invaluable as it saved us an incredible amount of time and resources and we were able to learn and begin using Asana effectively in a very short amount of time. While the program is relatively easy to figure out, Paul not only taught us helpful tips and tricks, he helped us realize that the “out of the box” set up wasn't completely ideal for us, and helped us to set up Asana in a way that worked best for our organization.

CASE STUDY

David Burk is the CEO of The Electron Shop, a marketing agency based in San Francisco. David and I spent some time tidying up his account and training his team on how to use Asana. He was able to transition his team away from email over to Asana and improve company productivity by 20%. Here's what David had to say about how Asana has revolutionised how he runs his business:

David Burk

RUNNING YOUR BUSINESS WITH ASANA

At my old job, we tried a few different project management tools to organise our work, but none of them really stuck. We found lots of the options were too hard to use and didn’t help us with our work. Then we found Asana...

Asana is the perfect tool for running your business:

  • Organise your work and create a sense of focus in your teamWhen you structure your work, it’s easier to focus on the work that grows your business.
  • Get everyone on the same page and working towards the same mission. Asana gives you a visual way of sharing your goals.
  • Make decisions quicker and focus more on the work. When you think in terms of “tasks” instead of “emails”, you naturally start to achieve more.
  • Create accountability and empower your team. When everyone knows WHO has to do WHAT by WHEN, you empower your team to take action.

As we started to organise our work in Asana, I quickly became the go-to person in the office for anything Asana related. I helped transition our company and 50+ staff over to Asana which we used for marketing, customer service, web development and other business projects. During this process, I learned a lot about what mistakes to avoid and how people can use Asana in the most effective way.

FREQUENTYLY QUESTIONS

Q: How long does it take to set up Asana?

This depends on the type of engagement we agree on. Smaller clients may only need help with account set up and optimisation which usually takes 2-4 weeks. Larger teams that require additional training, automation and integration with other tools may need closer to 2 to 3 months. As it takes a while for any team to adopt a new tool, I also offer long-term support options.

Q: What types of clients do you work with?

To date I've worked with 100+ clients from many different industries. Asana is commonly used in client-facing businesses like retail and professional service industries. I've also worked with satalite manufacturers, charities, agricultural businesses and many more. Whatever you do, I am confident I can offer creative solutions to your business.

Q: Do you keep my data private?

Often I'm required to login to your internet accounts and with your permission I store these passwords in my 1Password account. It goes without saying that I will keep your businesses data 100% private. I am also happy to sign an NDA if provided.

 

Q: What do you charge?

I offer various packages ranging from smaller set up and opitmisation projects to packages that include team training, automation and integration work. My custom packages range from $2,500 - $7,500 (this is just a ballpark, not an official quote and prices are suseptible to change). I do not charge an hourly rate, meaning you don't have to worry about cost every time we need to talk.

Q: What if I can't afford your consulting service?

If you can't afford my consulting packages, I also have a Getting Started with Asana video and instruction manual that guides you through set up and team training if you'd rather go it alone.

You can also book a 90-minute Asana workshop and one-off training session for your team. This option is great for small teams on a budget.
