How are the juggling lessons going?

Running a business requires a fair amount of juggling.

Juggling staff, clients, and new leads. Spending time sorting out holiday allocations, discussing the annual accounts with the accountant, getting payroll sorted.

…and that’s not including the fact that you’re responsible for marketing the business – something you’re likely not had any training on.

Chances are you got into business because you were good at a thing. Whether it’s making something or helping people do something.

…but even though you’re great at your thing, you’re not a marketer, something that squarely sits on your plate.

Getting help

One way to solve the problem is to get an agency in to do some of the stuff for you.

A lot of agencies are specialists… focusing on Search Engine Optimisation, Pay Per Click, Social Media, Email marketing…

Do you know which are your business should actually be focusing on?… and how do you know that they’re doing the right thing for you?…. cost effectively?

You’re using to handling the people in your business… but can you effectively handle those outside of your business? (and even some of those even within the business)…  who are doing something that is not second nature to you?

You need a Marketing Director

Having someone who is a part of your team, but who has extensive marketing experience and can manage agencies is an essential element of your business growth.

They can make sure that the marketing strategy is in place for the business and is moving you in the right direction.

They can work with your internal team AND external agencies, making sure that they are delivering the right solutions.

They’ll stop you heading down the wrong road (and wasting time and money on stuff that doesn’t work) AND ensure that external agencies don’t pull the wool over your eyes.

…and they can ensure that your business grows and develops, supporting you as the business owner.

The ‘Virtual’ Marketing Director

Unfortunately, most SME’s can’t afford their own marketing director, but they could have a ‘virtual’ marketing director supporting their business.

Working closely with you the business owner ensuring that the business’ marketing aligned with your overall growth strategy and dealing with internal staff and external agencies to deliver the vision.

A Virtual Marketing Director could support from a few hours a month to a few hours a day, depending on your requirements and is for most SME’s a cost effective solution.

It’s time to stop “juggling the marketing ball”

Working with a Virtual Marketing Director in your business will not only ensure that your marketing is ‘on point’, but frees you the time to focus on the things you should be doing.

It’ll save you money as you won’t be throwing cash at marketing tools that just aren’t right for your business or your customers, and save you the time involved in managing them.

It’ll ensure you keep things on track and aligned with your business goals.

It’ll add overall value to your business and bring much needed knowledge and experience under your umbrella as you plan for the future.

What’s stopping you?… It’s likely whatever it is, a Virtual Marketing Director will help.

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 a mentoring approach, check out our Marketing Mentor option… or if it’s just you need someone to actually do the stuff, you might consider our Implementation option.

"…a weight off my mind and a clear vision forward"

Although I’d been in business for several years, and developed quite a successful business I was struggling to develop a coherent marketing plan.

A few meetings with Robin cleared my mind and gave me a clear priority list of what I needed to do next (and also what not to do!).

It was a big weight off my mind and I now have a clear vision forward for my business, which has reduced my stress and helped me grow my business even further.

Robin’s ability to combine the broad strategic thinking with hands on implementation skills is a perfect combination.
