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.
On July 8th dance and performing arts schools from across Essex took part in the second fantastic show from Take the Stage UK, held at the Cliffs Pavilion.

This showcase has become an anticipated annual event, with the next one to take place on Saturday 6th July 2019. So, we look forward to continuing to work with Take the Stage to ensure another sell-out show.

After all, not all businesses have the luxury of their own internal marketing department, complete with experienced marketers, designers, photographers and copywriters. This leaves many business owners with inspired marketing ideas, but at a loss as to how to implement them! Read More
