The Adaptability Of A Marketing Agency In Essex
When people think of marketing, they think of many things. Advertising campaigns, blog writing, and PR executives whipping journalists into shape, all of which are true; but all of which are tangible things. People don’t often think of qualities or traits when they first think of marketing agencies; but it is these less objective, tangible qualities which often make the agencies what they are. In this blog, I wanted to take a look at the versatility and adaptability of marketing firms. Here at VerriBerri, our marketing agency in Essex, we’re constantly having to showcase flexibility, a characteristic which manifests itself in many different ways, depending on the situation.
Switch Off One Tone, Switch On Another
The nature of a marketing agency in Essex is that you have a wide variety of clients, of whom most, at least usually, couldn’t be further apart in terms of what they offer. This requires a chameleonic ability across all departments, to change your ‘tone of voice’ according to the client in question. To put it in a more demonstrable example, as a content creator, whose predominant focus is blog-writing; I have to change my style of language pretty much every blog.
With a cookery client, I will look to implement a more casual, conversational tone. The aim with these blogs is to come across as, for want of a better word, fun! Then, an hour later, it will be time for a piece surrounding recent updates to Government legislature in the construction industry, say. Naturally, this requires a much more technical, jargonistic rhetoric. The tone struck is informational rather than advertorial, to-the-point as opposed to florid.
As you can see, then, the nature of the client dictates the way we approach situations as a firm. Our PR team will approach different journalists in different ways, our graphic designers will cater their style per the nature of the client’s business – an IT firm is going to want less wacky, absurdist colours and graphics than a children’s brand, for example.
Change When Necessary
Few roads are smooth the whole way along, and this is especially true in the case of marketing strategies and campaigns. There is too much variability at play to talk in absolutes; even the most successful marketing campaigns have encountered roadblocks along the way. Do you buckle at the first sign of trouble? No, of course you don’t, you figure out ways around it. Here at our marketing agency in Essex, we’ve been around long enough to expect the unexpected. Whether it be the market driving changes, competitors coming out with something completely left-field or problems within a client’s business, itself, a good marketing agency needs to be able to take it all in their stride.
Match The Market
With over a decade of experience in the industry, our firm knows better than most just how changeable the worlds of business and marketing are. A decade ago, social media marketing was still in its relative infancy, now, social media marketing forms an integral part of our overall business model and is amongst the most popular of our services amongst clients. Whichever industry you occupy, you need to be prepared to adapt or get left behind. Whether you like the state of an industry is wholly irrelevant, it will move on with or without you.
The most celebrated musicians of all time are those who evolved and changed over time; experimenting and playing with new ideas. That’s where the real success lies. It stems from a willingness to never settle, to be able to change and accept that what once may have been the best way, no longer is. It’s as much a swallowing of pride and acceptance to learn as it is anything else. Our marketing agency in Essex isn’t perfect. We don’t claim to be! Our successes come from realising that, and always, always wanting to get better.
Flexibility In Terms Of Services Offered
There are marketing agencies that focus on one specific service and there are those that offer various services. Whilst, arguably, there’s no right or wrong choice with which to opt, giving your firm’s bow as many strings as possible allows for a greater degree of flexibility in terms of strategy. An agency with a singular focus has to adopt a more rigid approach, purely because they’ve got nowhere else to turn. Should they encounter issues with a strategy, their answer will be to throw more at it because that’s all they can do. An agency offering content creation, social media marketing, PR, graphic design, business development etc., by comparison, can adapt in real-time as it goes along.
This is also conducive in creating longer-lasting relationships with clients. How so? Well, when a client first comes on board, their marketing needs will be different to two years down the line when they’re business has grown to a more substantial size. The initial marketing for a start-up will focus on brand recognition, creating the branding and driving initial traffic. Later, it will be about continued growth at a higher level by utilising PR, as well as maintaining search engine position through SEO work. If you don’t have the capacity to cater to that changing demand, then the client will simply go elsewhere to another firm which can provide what they need. It serves in the best interest of both the client and the agency, then, to offer as comprehensive and holistic a service as it can do.
Yes, marketing is about securing returns for a client, but not all clients are the same (wouldn’t that just make for the most boring job…) So, if you’d like to find out more about our marketing agency in Essex, then get in touch!
