What Marketing Consultants In Essex Can Offer You
Having a sounding board for your ideas can be such a beneficial thing for you and your business. In recent times, we’ve become so insular and guarded, that we’ve lost some of the art of sharing ideas with one another. Some of the best businesses have stemmed from MDs throwing bucket loads of ideas at a wall, spaghetti style, and seeing what stuck.
Whilst that may be a waste of perfectly good spaghetti, and most of those ideas will probably be useless; all it takes is that one gem of an idea to work with, and you’re off. That’s why marketing consultants in Essex can prove so beneficial for your business. The myriad of marketing choices at your business’ disposal now can often seem overwhelming. The team here at VerriBerri wants to break down the marketing options available to you in 2020.
Filtering Your Decisions
You don’t voice every thought you have, at least most of us don’t. Most of us have an internal filter that keeps us from putting our foot in it, every other sentence. You should approach your marketing in very much the same way. Also, you shouldn’t just think because you have one marketing idea for your brand, that that’s what you should prompt for. You need someone to act as that internal filter as your brain would for your regular thoughts.
Our marketing consultants in Essex agency VerriBerri are experienced in knowing which ideas should go ahead; and which should very much be vetoed. When we’re operating a brand, we sometimes completely miss something that may come across as tactless, misguided or downright offensive. Good optics are essential in preventing any crises from arising. An agency is the physical manifestation of the phrase ‘think before you speak’. I know I could certainly benefit from a filter like that!
Teaching You What’s Best For Your Brand
It doesn’t take long for marketing consultants in Essex to evaluate and digest your brand. In fact, they’ll quickly know your brand so inside-out that they’ll know it better than yourself! Ok, well perhaps not that far but the point is they can process and formulate a marketing strategy based on what’s best for your brand, specifically. No two brands are the same and as such, each brand requires a different bespoke marketing strategy all to its own.
Your brand will suit some facets of marketing better than others. If your brand offers a product or service aimed at a more elderly demographic, for example, then looking to build an Instagram following may prove a waste of time. Stannah stair lifts may help your nan, Margaret, get up the stairs but they’re not going to set the world of influencers alight…
Taking The Path Less Travelled
Let’s say, for example, your brand comes to marketing consultants in Essex having only ever really dipped your toes into one marketing avenue. Perhaps you read somewhere that you should be focusing your time and money on PPC and nowhere else. Now, you can plough ahead like a bull in a china shop, harbouring the mentality that if you throw enough money at it you’ll start seeing a worthwhile ROI. Or you can be a bit smarter about it.
An agency such as ours will stop you for a second, and guide you towards a re-evaluation of your brand’s strategy and say ‘well, what if we went about it this way?’. Simplistic, though it may sound, just askingthe question of whether your brand has even entertained the idea of other marketing pathways can open up whole new areas for your brand to explore.
Knowing The Trends
Whether it be social media marketing, SEO work or PR, there are trends to keep on top of in all of them. SEO algorithms, for example, change quicker than you can say ‘Google please stop updating your algorithms’, and even the most seasoned of SEO veterans can be left scratching their heads wondering what Google wants from you. Marketing consultants in Essex will advise you on these latest trends, guiding you on what to target and what to avoid.
This is because, for every one worthwhile trend, there are ten or twenty ones which will bottom out before the day is even up. With so much media white noise bombarding us every second of every day, it’s a self-assured brand that doesn’t instantly buckle under pressure and succumb to the first online ‘hot marketing take’ they see. Having that agency gently coaxing you in the right direction helps provide some of that brand confidence. This will help you operate on your terms and utilise the trends which will suit your brand.
Choose The Right Agency
We’re going to talk about this as objectively as we possibly can, now. You need to choose marketing consultants in Essex that genuinely have your brand’s best interests at heart, and aren’t simply in it for a quick buck. Carry out your due diligence and research what an agency’s ethics and policies are – this will reveal a lot about the people you may end up in bed with, business-wise. The best agencies are those that want to help your brand through the duration of its business career. Investigate their previous clients, their case studies and their workplace processes to ensure they align with your brand’s.
If you’re the sort of business owner that values prompt responses and clear channels of communication, then you should be looking for an agency equally proactive in their approach. If, by contrast, you’re a bit zanier and more laid-back, then going for a more out-there, abstract agency may be just what the doctor ordered for your brand.
Sometimes, it’s as simple as having someone on your side, backing your brand tooth-and-nail, through good times and bad.
