Small companies need big ideas too

Your business may not be a big business, but it has big plans, we know it does. Plans to grow, plans to expand, plans to get to a new level.  We’re also sure you have plans to market the business to both your existing and potential new customers. In fact you may already have a company that handles your marketing requirements, both online and offline.
If that is the case, we’d like to think you’re reading this because you’re looking for something different, some added value from your marketing and therefore someone different to handle it. If so, you’ve come to the right place, because small companies need big thinking too. Read more…

Understanding your business is our business

You’re a big company, with a big marketing department and big budget. Does this make things easier? We know it doesn’t. We understand the wider challenges faced by big companies and therefore can provide the external point of view needed to get under the skin of your business. In large organisations, there are sometimes many stakeholders who can influence the marketing and business direction.
A marketer in this type of environment has more than just their customers on their mind. By getting to know your business, your people and your processes we can become part of your team, but see things from a fresh perspective and in doing so help to streamline marketing projects from start to finish. Little agencies do have big clients. Perhaps you could be our next one. Read more…

Get it right, right from the start

You’ve had a great idea, a vision, you’ve taken the plunge and set up your own business. Now what? You’re going to need branding, a marketing strategy, a website, advertising, packaging, brochures…a big list. Let’s be honest, what you really need is customers and to get them you are probably going to need some of the items we just listed. In fact the first thing you need is advice, from someone that has helped other start up businesses,
just like yours to hit the ground running and keep running. We’ve helped many start up businesses take their first steps into the world of marketing and we are sensitive to their needs, because just like them, we were a start up once and we remember how scary it was. Starting a business could be the biggest decision you’ll ever make. Picking the right agency to help is an easy one. Read more…

Marketing in the charity sector

There has never been a tougher environment for the charity sector. Of course, you know that already. People are concerned with filling their cars with fuel not charity tins, but that doesn’t mean the causes your charity supports don’t still need help. But what it does mean is that you probably need to do things a bit smarter than before, find new and innovative revenue streams,
look at new ways to generate donations and promote it professionally. Perhaps look at outsourcing some elements of your marketing and fundraising operation. We’ve helped many charities in different ways. And no two solutions are ever the same, because no two situations are ever the same. If you’re faced by a situation that requires some help. Help is at hand. Read more…
