Auditing a Brand
Your brand identity is how consumers see you; the essence is your brand personality which consumers connect with, and it can be influenced by a variety of marketing communication channels or as we call them "vehicles of communication". Through a comprehensive marketing communications audit, we will evaluate the consistency of your brand messaging and examine how well your communication connects with your audiences. We’ll work with you to refresh your brand strategy to maintain written and visual consistency while driving your core message directly to the minds of your audience.
If you are launching new products or introducing an existing product to new markets, you need a strategy for your direct marketing tactics to make it stick in the minds of your customers.
We understand that your strategic business units (SBU) sales, marketing and product management functions are interconnected and do not operate alone. We'll work together to develop integrated go-to-market strategies which include market research, marketing tactics and lead generation techniques to establish a strong position in your market.
why use direct marketing?
A direct marketing campaign with a clear call to action can boost sales to existing customers, increase loyalty, generate new business while engaging. Direct marketing can be evaluated and measured precisely.
Example, you can send out marketing emails directing customers to specific landing pages on your website, evaluate the results to see which email was most successful from your email marketing campaign hub software.
Choosing the right communication method is vital. Businesses can be more receptive to receiving sales calls than consumers, and the golden rule is research, get to know your customer.
