1. Common Questions

Q: Why doesn't DeSoto LLC use social media? 

Great question! We don't use social media because of two very distinct reasons. First and foremost we believe that brands are built not bought. Our reputation has us booked three to six months out. The second is cognitive distraction. We believe that social media takes a massive amount of focus out of the equation and diverts from core business practices.

Q: What Can DeSoto LLC do for my Business?

That's a good question! We can help you solve problems that you are struggling with. It's that simple. Over the last 15 years we have helped solve a variety of problems that tend to make your hair turn grey by giving you some outside professional perspective.

Q: Do you work with any business?

Before we take on any client we do an initial analysis, If we are not confident that we can create a positive return on your investment in my time we will not sign you as a client. On occasion there are companies that have an offering that we do not morally agree with and cannot participate in helping.

Q: How long does it take to see a return?

That depends on what problem we are helping with. Some items can take a few weeks to gain traction as compared to positively changing the client engagement protocol which can often have immediate results. During the initial consultation, we will lay out all projected outcomes.

Q: Why don't you list more of your clients' names on your website?

Most of our clients insist on strict confidentiality, so we cannot divulge any information about them beyond their industry and a general description of the type of services we provided them.
