FED UP wasting your time & money on marketing &
not seeing the results?

We get it!
If you’re like most SME’S you can’t afford a full-time
Marketing Manager, especially in this economy.

 

Money is tight, but you still need to reach your customers.

Struggling to explain what you sell?

Website not converting?

No effective strategy to generate sales?

Themes
Clients
Active Installs

Does this sound familiar?

We understand how challenging it is to run your business and try to handle all the marketing as well.

And yet – as you know – in this competitive world, effective marketing is key to success.

You need a way to access “big business” thinking on a small business budget.

You need a trusted advisor on your executive team.

But how?

Don’t do marketing the ineffective way.

Have your own senior digital
Virtual Marketing Manager,
work within your business.

You deserve to have a guide that can help get your marketing right without breaking the bank.

They get to know your business, care and are accountable to it just as you are. They are an extension of your business.

We leverage your internal marketing capacity and act as your ongoing strategic digital partner, committed to delivering measurable results in a cost-effective way.

And the best part? If you ever want to bring it all in-house, the processes and skills for day-to-day execution are all set up for you.

You’ll love the diversity. You’ll love their abilities. You’ll love the results!

Unlike an internal hire, your Virtual Marketing Manager comes backed by a multi-skilled team of experts in strategy, digital, creative, social and media.

Your Marketing Manager will drive your business from the inside based on an affordable package that’s made for SMEs.

Employing a senior marketing manager isn’t easy; hard to find, even harder to afford.* Entrust things to an external agency, as an SME you’ll get “little care, even less responsibility”.

A junior just won’t bring the level of advice and leadership you need.

And trying to do it yourself takes too much time and involves too much uncertainty; your marketing ends up sporadic, poorly managed and inadequately optimised. And suppliers can take advantage of you.

It’s a marketing Catch 22.

Now there’s a solution. A hybrid service model that adds real fire-power to your team in a way you can afford.

How we add serious horsepower to your business.

Phase 1

Marketing Blueprint: strategic planning

Good planning isn’t imposed on a business, it’s drawn from within it. Your Marketing Manager works closely with you and collaborates with your team through the critical planning phase.
Here’s how it works:

We develop your Marketing BluePrint, a comprehensive document that provides the necessary foundations of good brand and marketing planning including:

What are we going to say (Brand, messaging and value proposition)
What are we trying the achieve and how will we measure performance (metrics)
Who do we want to talk to (the target market)
Where will we say it (channels we will use)
When will we say it (tactical plan)
What do we need to spend (budget)
Competitive review
Review of current tools, processes and materials

Submission of the plan and discussion.

At the completion of this phase you may choose to continue to work with us or not.

Phase 2

Implementation: delivery of the plan

The marketing plan has identified the appropriate channels, resources, propositions and more. Now it needs to be turned into reality – on time and on budget.

This process is highly variable depending on business needs; it can involve some or all the below:

Manage timelines and budgets to ensure plan is successfully delivered.

Leverage and manage Permission specialist team resources;

  • Brand development
  • Social strategy
  • Search advertising and optimisation
  • Media planning and buying
  • Creative and production
  • Messaging
  • Design
  • Artwork, illustration, photography, retouching etc
  •  

Delivery of all approved assets and deliverables to ensure the success of the campaign.

Report, adjust and optimise activity. Staying close to your business performance, responding rapidly and tweaking for success:

  • Weekly WIP meeting – face-to-face and on the phone
  • Monthly monitoring and reporting
  • Quarterly reviews, benchmarking and objective setting
  • Annual plan updates
  •
