About the Founder

Richard Merrill has a strong belief in creating a highly-engaged community through experiential sales and marketing strategies forged through every aspect of business development.

As an award winning, creative, out of the box thinker and business leader from a diverse background, it was Richard's vision to create a solution for automating sales and marketing strategies. Too many spa professionals lacked a professional strategy, clear message or the time to execute solid business practices.

Passionate and productive professionals are falling short of their goals month after month. Richard Merrill decided to do something about it. That something is Richard Merrill Consulting.

Richard feels that the most engaged brands don't just provide a product or a service; they evoke an emotion within their community. They don't just embody a single persona; they motivate our entire community. As times change, these brands adhere to a deeper purpose at the core of their identity and keep producing the products, services, and stories that embody their original vision.

More than just a fitting logo or a memorable tagline, the brands created here are entire client experiences. Every day, after bonding to understand what each unique brand needs our team works together to formulate a winning strategy, design a professional brand identity, and assist you in communicating your message to the world.

Richard Merrill Consulting is who we are and creative business strategy is what we do best.


Schedule a 30 minutes complimentary consultation where together we will perform an in-depth business needs assessment and review the award-winning Business Snapshot Report to give you a clear overview of your business needs. At the end of this call you will walk away equipped with the answers you need to start growing your business immediately.
