Marketing – it’s worth the focus

For business leaders faced with escalating demands on all fronts, marketing can easily get pushed down the agenda. At the same time, most would agree that the ability to listen to, respond to and reach your market (customers, shareholders, employees, influencers and suppliers) has never been more vital.

We understand that you are time constrained and busy juggling a variety of responsibilities.

Our KickStart marketing service helps you and your team ‘kick-start’ your marketing effort to action.

So where do you start?

KickStart staff work directly with you or your marketing team to answer the often asked question ‘Where do we start?’

For some of our customers this means putting a marketing plan in place, for others it’s redefining the logo and corporate identity, or perhaps training internal marketing staff towards greater focus. It may also be developing that suite of case studies you’ve had on the ‘to do’ list for a while, direct marketing programs, or running a messaging and positioning session to get your team singing off the same song sheet.

Our senior consultants work with you from scratch, guiding you through the most practical cost and time effective process, whatever your budget, to make your marketing happen. We start by helping you prioritise your needs and identifying the best options and projected results.
