Perhaps you need help boosting your business but you’re not sure how a marketing consultant can help you thrive? No need to enter a Google vortex of answers, here’s a breakdown of what you can expect from a marketing consultant, just like our experts at Better Mousetrap Marketing.
All wrapped up, marketing consulting involves conducting and using thorough market analysis to develop a marketing strategy and implement a brand-new marketing plan that generates new leads for your business. Marketing specialists, just like ours at Better Mousetrap Marketing do this by:
Answering your questions
Maybe you’ve had marketing jargon thrown at you left, right, and center but somehow what you really needed to know has been lost in translation. Sound familiar? A marketing consultant will sit down with you to make things easier, answering any questions you have, from the kind of budgets to expect to the best marketing tools we’d recommend for your business.
Identifying your business, marketing, and sales goals
Working with your management team, a marketing consultant will then identify your goals and see where a robust marketing plan can support you.
Delving into research
It’s time to get to know your customers and competitors inside and out. Using data and metrics from your industry, a marketing consultant will then be able to monitor how consumer behavior might impact your plans, before suggesting the best ways for you to reach your customer base.
Analyzing your current marketing strategy
The next step will involve a marketing consultant casting their eye over your current strategy, including who your target audience is and how you’re currently reaching your customer base. The team at Better Mousetrap Marketing will then use our market research to work out what is working well for you and what could be done better for your business.
Finding the best marketing options for you
Social media, email, or direct mail? The list goes on. These days it may seem like there are one million ways to market your business, but how do you know which one is right for you? Our consultants will be there to guide you through the maze of marketing platforms and find the most suitable options for your brand – and budget!
Creating a brand new marketing strategy that works for your business
Ta-dah – marketing consultants will then use everything we’ve learned about both your business and your customers and work with you to create a marketing plan that works for you. Our experts will make sure your brand message is on point, reaches your customers the right way, and generates new leads for your business.
A top tip from us: setting key performance indicators throughout your plan is often a great way to check how your strategy is working and gives you the option to change your marketing plan based on results.
