And with Brits spending on average, 2 hours and 34 minutes online on their smartphones every day, it makes good business sense even after a global pandemic (source ONS).
We work hard to get under the skin of your company and having the time to get to know you is important to us. However, after meeting Redbrooks’ new Managing Director on the 12 December 2019, we delivered a rebrand, new photography and a new website in just eight weeks.

There’s some truth in what he says. Getting your brand right is an essential foundation for your whole marketing strategy – but how do you ‘get it right’? What is your brand? What should it achieve? And what does yours say about your business at this point in time?

The number of potential marketing strategy methods for your business seems endless, each one a golden opportunity to develop great relationships with your customers. However, without a joined-up approach, you risk the opposite: confusing them or, even worse, alienating them!
So what do we mean by a joined-up marketing strategy? Well, put simply, it’s ensuring that every element of your marketing ties together and works to achieve the same goal. It’s about visual and tonal consistency to reinforce your overall brand. And it’s about avoiding a ‘patchwork’ approach – such as putting all your efforts into social media one month, only to drop it the next.
