And the winner is…

By | Design, Marketing

You? Or your biggest competitor? How can competitor analysis help?

It’s really gutting, isn’t it, when you put in all that time and hard work to win a big project or an important order – only to lose out at the last moment.

Sometimes the winning margin can be so small. It might simply be down to how you present your business, or the way potential customers see you.

It doesn’t have to be like that. We’ve helped businesses like yours to change the way they’re seen. A vehicle salvage company is now winning new contracts through a more professional look. A 50 year old construction business is turning solid new business enquiries into orders.

So, if you’d like some of that, give us a call.

We will:

  • Listen.
  • Ask some hard questions.
  • Help with your strategic thinking or marketing plan.
  • Bring you fresh ideas – whether it’s for website design, print, presentations, or e-shots.

Get in touch on 01702 343203. We can help you win with our competitor analysis services.

The missing link?

Social networks are now a big part of the landscape when it comes to branding. Websites are important, but how often do customers or clients visit once they have bought a service? What’s more, they don’t often allow you to have conversation with your audience. So when leading fit-out client Brown & Carroll wanted to combat some misguided market perceptions, they asked us to look at their online options.

After doing some research we established that professional network LinkedIn was the most suitable channel for them. We devised a strategy for managing their reputation and communicating with their target audiences and for the last 6 months have been implementing that strategy with great success. Read More
