Implementation

Need some extra support and work done for you?.. We can help you make the right things actually happen.

It’s lonely out there… 

If you’ve been self employed for any amount of time, it’s almost guaranteed you’ve heard this phrase:

“The best thing about being self employed is there’s no one to tell you what to do.  The worst thing about being self employed is there’s no one to tell you what to do!”

…and this is true for every aspect of owning a small business… none more so than your marketing efforts.

Chances are you started your business because you were good at something, but as you developed, you realised that just being good is no longer enough – you need to market your business and generate leads & customers… and that’s where the problem starts – because you are not a marketer.

Asking for help

If you’re working on your own, or in a small businesses, having someone who’s a marketing expert that you can bounce ideas off and who can point you in the right direction is a must-have.

Our marketing mentor service gives you the chance to tap into your own virtual “marketing director” regularly and discuss the challenges you face and the best way to overcome them.

Knowing what to spend your (already limited) time and money on when it comes to marketing and how it fits in with your overall business development will save countless hours and give you confidence that you’re doing the right thing.

Do you update your website? Spend money of Facebook Advertising? Google Ads? Emails? Live chat?…

All of these are questions that every business has, and knowing what’s right for you (and just as importantly what’s not right!) will ensure your business survives and thrives.

How does it work?

You can choose an appropriate package to match your requirements following a FREE introductory 30 minute chat and decide whether you want to have the sessions in person or via teleconference.

Your session will be conducted directly with Robin Adams, a marketer with over 25 years experience helping businesses grow through effective marketing activity.

With an actual marketing degree (back when there weren’t that many places to get one) and an MBA, Robin has the experience and background to see the bigger picture and how everything can fit together.

…but unlike other strategic marketers, who live with their head in the clouds, Robin is more than happy to get his hands dirty and relishes the fact that he’s “51% marketer, 49% geek“. In fact, he’s pretty much done most things marketing in his career…

  • Email Campaigns & Mailchimp (Recognised Mailchimp Partner and Expert) ✅
  • Websites built, SEO strategies implemented ✅
  • Video Production & Marketing ✅
  • Social Media Planning & Implementation ✅
  • Pay Per Click Advertising on Facebook & Google ✅
  • Chatbot set up & implementation ✅
  • Direct Mail and traditional advertising (it’s not all digital!) ✅
  • Lots of other digital and non-digital activities ✅

A chat with Robin means not only do you get an understanding of the bigger picture… but the nitty gritty detail that you need in place to get you there.

….and if you want some more substantial support, check out our Virtual Marketing Director and Implementation options.

'...saved me around £1000 per year'

I run a small vacation rentals business based in Nice, France.  Managing mutiple bookings and guests is time consuming and details can be missed.  ChimpAnswers helped me set up a series of automated emails to improve the customer experience and upsell small add-ons to their stay.

I'm now looking to reproduce the automation sequence in other languages to serve specific markets which will give an even better experience to my customers.

ChimpAnswers explain how Mailchimp works in simple layman's terms so that I can understand it for myself. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again if and when I need further assistance.
