Strategic Planning & Market Research
Key activities and revenue targets in the client's business plan can be set objectively with a marketing programme created with milestones and budgets. Our approach to strategic planning is to ensure the client receives an integrated marketing plan with measurable results and illustration of return on investment.
The developing image of a company can be created with synergy throughout for logos, stationery, signs and collateral (brochures, posters, booklets, presentations, sales packs). These can be complemented with electronic documentation such as web pages, email background templates and other related on-line materials. Existing material for a company with an existing image will be evaluated, an assessment made on how this is best utilised and the benefits of a re-design.
A branding programme for a company's product or service can contribute toward an enhanced image leading to significant market positioning. This could take the form of 'call for action' magazine advertising, targeted direct mail, Press launch or Broadcast media. The foundations, background, and beliefs in a product or service will be communicated to a targeted audience and progressed with great effectiveness.

For this, we implement the custom-built database that exactly matches the target audience and the decision-making structure required - dream customers included. This can be a fixed-cost programme, or a scalable study against a monthly budget or period. With the exchange of information with the client, a proposal to identify issues and develop marketing strategies is created. The research findings focus the clients 'effective' positioning and assist the development of the client's value proposition.
