We often get business owners who feel disheartened in their own forays saying “we tried so and so marketing tactic and it doesn’t work for us”.
Unlike some marketing companies, we believe that effective marketing needs to be grounded in strategy rather than just ticking some boxes or doing what we would call “vanity marketing”. Every business has a different relationship with their customers so be wary of advice given from people who don’t know your business and your customers intimately.
Our approach is to work with you to get to know who your customer personas are and clearly establish what your business stands for and why they will come. We educate you on what ingredients go into a sound marketing strategy and run some as proof of concept. At that point clients have the opportunity to do their own marketing or managing it through an outsourced supplier.
Why we get such great results and are effective is that we are data-driven. Using practical and innovative tools, we analyse every point of a potential customer’s impression of you, and test decisions based on their behaviour. Moving forward you’ll know what works and what doesn’t based on real feedback, coming away with a newfound confidence of how manage the magic of tapping into more clients at will.
