Marketing Consultancy Session

If you can’t find the wood for the trees, we’ll bring a chainsaw!

We can’t all be experts at sales and marketing yet it’s the #1 reason why businesses fail and it’s almost always because of a lack of blunt clarity!

Why hold your business back not taking your marketing seriously – join Stewart “Powerhouse” Leahy in a 2 hour 121 marketing consultancy session to sharpen up your business marketing and create a laser focus on sales activities!

Push or Pull?

What’s the difference between marketing and selling – in our view it’s as simple as understanding the difference between pushing and pulling.  Selling is definitely a ‘push’ activity and is normally an attempt to convince or persuade a prospect to buy from you.  Marketing, on the other hand, is all about understanding your customer, what their needs are, what your message should be, how your ‘brand’ should present itself, what channels to communicate on and how to ‘pull’ prospects to your offer when they’re ready to make a purchase.

In truth, most businesses need to pull and push – but probably on an 80:20 ratio and possibly going even as far as 95:5!

These sessions are ideal for SME owners who need some help and direction to take ownership of their marketing strategy and to create clarity to ‘direct’ their ongoing communications on all platforms – social, digital, traditional, etc.
