Chess Media Group and Metz Consulting Announce Services Partnership!

Posted by on October 12, 2010

In what is perhaps the biggest and most exciting piece of news about Chess Media Group to date – Connie and I are very excited to announce that we have joined forces with Metz Consulting to form a services partnership.  Chess Media Group and Metz will jointly share clients that wish to have both teams present; we will also be sharing resources.  In addition we have released a new set of social business services which you can see on our services page.  The new set of services are designed to offer comprehensive social business strategy services to larger clients while still being able to service smaller and medium size organizations (with items such as our wiki).  One thing you will notice is that the services page includes costs associated with the various services and packages that we offer, something nobody else is doing.

Metz consulting is based in San Francisco so our presence there will increase while also maintaining our Vancouver, Canada based operations.  Chess reached a point where we needed to start to grow and expand our team and offerings and this partnership will allow us to do just that while still maintaining a superior level of client servicing and account management.  Adam and I have known each other for a little while and as we started to spend more time together we realized that our outlooks on life and our approaches to social business were remarkably similar.  Connie and I have shared this similar outlook for quite some time which is why we are all so excited to be working together.

Our new approach to social business is to try to make things simple to understand while still providing the greatest possible value.  No more jargon and no more complicated and nonsensical terms.  We laid out our services, our client methodology, and our strategic framework to make things simple and efficient for anyone that is looking to work with Chess and Metz.  All of our costs are also clearly spelled out and we are always happy to chat with prospects to explain things in greater details.  Social business doesn’t need to be complicated and overwhelming, it needs to make sense.

The key benefits of our service partnership are:

  • Expanded verticals: Broader consulting expertise across more vertical markets, such as hospitality/travel, food & beverage, sports and outdoors, technology, property management and construction, government and CPG
  • Easy buying and decision-making: A new approach to social business strategy for organizations, designed to simplify the consulting selection process, while still providing maximum value for clients
  • Easy For Newbies, Easy For “Veterans”: A broader service offering designed to offer affordable social business solutions for organizations that are either new to social business or for mature organizations that are looking to advance further.

Both Chess Media Group and Metz Consulting offer complimentary skills sets with a unified vision for a work/life balance and the future of social business.  Connie and I wish to thank everyone for their continued support, it really means a lot!

This partnership marks a new and exciting milestone for both of our organizations and we hope that you will continue join and support us as we start a new chapter!

Here is the full press release.

  • Congratulations Connie and Jacob! I'm all about partnership and collaboration, this sounds like great news for your clients!

  • Congrats Jacob!

  • congratulations on the partnership. It certainly sounds like the pro's are being taken in very nicely. Though the con's of the partnership might just be as interesting to read up on. For one, it would be useful to see how a partnership starts up and what to expect if you start a partnership.

  • Heya Seiji – starting a partnership is interesting, and a lot of small companies “date before they marry,” so to speak.

    That's why a lot of folks read the NOLO books (Anthony Mancuso is a recommended author, here) regarding exploring service partnerships and strategic partnerships, to figure out what arrangement is right for them.

    We're really excited about this new development, and look forward to providing a wider range of social business solutions to amazing brands.

  • Right decision i think, It would give you new success in social media presence.
