We will help you review and improve your Competitor Positioning. You will need to know what sets your products, services and company apart from your competitors. What value do you provide? How is it different from the alternatives? What is the best way to carve out a position in the competitive landscape?
In order to sell your product to your customers you have to know and understand them, this is accomplished through marketing segmentation. Segmentation divides the overall market into smaller groups based on Industry sector, demographics, geography, lifestyle or behavioural approaches. Without segmentation, marketing to your customer takes a lot of time, money and effort
This is how you sell your product and how you plan your sales. Through discussion and consideration we will help you identify the best routes to market that are cost effective and will optimise sales opportunities
As one of the most important factors in the marketing mix, we will advise on a plan to ensure your sales department is fed with a constant flow of high quality marketing leads. We will discuss the current channels used and their effective ness and make recommendations for improvement
Clients have great products and services, but often the presentation and articulation of the unique selling points can be poor and understated. The customer is left unclear on the benefits and value of the product or service. We spend time with you to understand and ensure your product and service offering is presented in the optimal way. We will advise on a suitable plan to improve the current level of understanding
We will help you understand what your consumers want, what your companies and brand capabilities are and how your competitors are positioning their brands. We will then help you to reflect your brand positioning in everything you do from your brand personality, packaging, design, product, service, visual identity and communications
These are specific, numerical marketing metrics that companies track in order to measure their progress towards a defined goal within their marketing channels. By tracking the right marketing KPIs, your company will be able to make adjustments to various strategies and budgets and ensure you are achieving an acceptable return on investment. We will advise on suitable measures and metrics to measure performance in the marketing function
