Creating an Online Strategy

Are you making the most of the opportunity of online marketing? With so many potential buyers actively using search engines, websites, apps and social media to decide on the best product or service, you have to be visible and provide the best experience to help them choose your brand.

But online marketing is not easy, competition is tough, with many online marketing tools and techniques to choose from, so you need to make the intelligent online marketing choices. To compete, we believe that a planned approach is essential, but many businesses don’t have an online strategy or roadmap. Let us help you create one.

Managing Your Business’ Digital Transformation

It’s now more than 25 years since the birth of the web, but many businesses are still at the early stages of a long journey to make the best use of digital marketing to stay competitive.

We believe that a proactive approach for managing Digital Transformation is essential to keep a brand relevant and competitive in the future. Plan and review your progress using our recommended resources including a capability assessment and 7 Steps to Digital Transformation infographic. Let us help you through this process with a weekly or monthly coaching session.

Optimising Your Digital Marketing

We believe that, in many businesses, there is a failure to deliver on the fantastic potential of Digital Marketing. Although digital media and platforms have been called ‘the most measurable ever’, the wealth of data we collect about our customers and visitors to our ‘owned media’ such as websites, mobile apps and social network pages is not fully utilised in many businesses.

Through using #ActionableAnalytics that focus on making insights and analytics more actionable as part of Digital Marketing Optimization, businesses can begin to take full advantage of the true potential of digital marketing.

Creating a Marketing Plan or Campaign

Developing plans and strategies for marketing today is the most challenging it has ever been. There is an incredible and increasing choice of interactive devices, platforms and channels that potential customers use from smartphones and tablets to social networks and search engines. Investment in traditional channels such as TV, Print and Radio is declining, but they remain an essential part of integrated campaigns for many businesses.

Yet the fundamentals of marketing planning remain the same. Regardless of the channels available we need to research customer needs, develop winning brand propositions for different target segments and communicate them effectively.

Improve your Search Engine Optimisation Strategy

Despite all the recent focus on content marketing and media marketing,  SEO can still be a fantastic way to drive quality visitors who want to do business with you to your site.

Some businesses and blogs can deliver well over half their traffic from SEO through their SEO mastery, or the strength of their brand, so it warrants close attention and a more planned, strategic approach.

Need To Develop A Content Marketing Plan to Grow Your Business

Content marketing is essential to modern marketing since its the fuel that powers all the core digital marketing channels from search, social and email marketing and it’s essential for increasing lead and sale conversion rates too.

But content marketing isn’t a hidden secret any longer, many businesses know they need to get it right, so competition is tough, really tough. A planned approach is essential to compete.

You want to Improve Your Email Marketing

Some have said “email marketing is dead” with the growth in social media marketing. Far from it! Benchmarks comparing digital channels show that email remains one of the most effective methods of customer communications.

But, there are lots of decisions need to form a strategy, for example: “How should we segment and target our emails“; “What frequency should we use?“; “How do improve delivery?” and most challenging, “How can we keep our email subscribers engaged and active?“.

Increase Sharing and Engagement with Social Media

How does your social media marketing strategy rate? To help you review ways to make better use of social networks we have created a new social media benchmark where you can score how you rate on a 5-point scale for each of the 7 key areas we recommend you focus on.

Business Growth Services

  • Deciphering

    Every business should operate in an efficient manner in order to compete and survive for the long haul. Being more efficient will help lower cost of goods and generate more profits. But where are you now and how do you get to a stage of efficiency across your operation?

  • Conceiving

    An idea for a business that includes basic information such as the service or product, the target demographic, and a unique selling proposition that gives a company an advantage over competitors. A business concept may involve a new product or simply a novel approach to marketing or delivering an existing product. Once a concept is developed, it is incorporated into a business plan.

  • Wireframing

    Starting a new project is in a lot of ways the hardest part. It’s the only stage of development that you’re turning nothing into something.

    Luckily, there are proven methods to reduce the “empty canvas” syndrome. We’ll talk about the best ways to handle the early stages of brainstorming and concepting and how it translates into wireframing to prototyping.

  • Designing

    Good quality design is an integral part of sustainable development. Design quality matters and that planning should drive up standards across all forms of development. As a core planning principle, plan-makers and decision takers should always seek to secure high quality design.

  • Developing

    Almost by definition, innovation relies on project management. Irrespective of whether the innovation concerns a new product, or a new process, or indeed a contribution to pure science, better project management, on the whole, will see a successful outcome reached more quickly, having consumed fewer resources.

  • Marketing

    For business owners market intelligence about their consumer base is an exceedingly important part of developing positive customer relationships, increasing leads, and creating a life-long customer base. Equally as important as watching your customers, though, is keeping an even closer eye on the actions of your competitors.

  • Mentoring

    A good mentor is available to answer any questions relevant to the job. Good mentor-mentee relationships are a two way street; consequently, if you want a good relationship with your mentor, become a good mentee. This requires a genuine interest in your mentor and a willingness to do what it takes to become successful.
