WHERE LOCAL BUSINESS GROWS

Writing a Marketing Plan

Let’s be clear, writing a marketing plan is not about fancy graphics and clever tag lines.

Decisions have to be made regarding the product or service being offered, the mix of good, better or best marketing practice with due consideration given to the competitors that you have to beat.

When you are writing a marketing plan, establishing your pricing position is vital.  More profit is made by great pricing plans than by cost cutting processes if you get this right.

Ensuring all aspects of the business match the marketing plan is a sure way to build success … high quality and high price positioning needs to be matched with excellent customer service, delivery and packaging standards to maintain consistency.

The marketing plan tends to be an internal plan, substance is more important than presentation.

Strategic marketing
 

Strategic Marketing: the setting out of clearly defined business goals and how they will be implemented.

This is basically about what connects your business to the market and how you will maximise the commercial opportunity that exists.  Your strategic marketing needs to take several factors into account and thought needs to be given to all of them to develop a robust strategy that will help your business succeed:

  • Where is my business trying to get to in the short, medium and long term?  Short term tends to be the main area of focus with new businesses but putting some thought into the direction over the longer term is a useful exercise within the strategic planning.
  • Which markets will the business operate in and what other types of activity are involved in those markets?  This can open many areas for exploration such as potential collaborations with others who have complimentary products or services but overall it provides an understanding of the scope of the market.
  • How will I compete?  More importantly, how will I compete better than my rivals to gain a commercial advantage?  This could be quality, price, service level or any number of differentiators – it could even be ‘how’ you sell your products or service.
  • What do I need to compete successfully?  Resources – equipment, finance, people, skills etc.
  • What external factors will influence or affect my ability to compete?  This covers a broad range of subjects but good examples would be things like the exchange rate if you are an importer or exporter.  These are elements which are beyond your direct control but impact on your ability to operate in your market.
  • Who else influences the market?  The expectations and values of a number of stakeholders can have importance within your market space (trade associations or local government for example) and you need to understand how their influence works and how you can best utilise it.
  • The combination of the goals and strategy will then generate a vision of your strategic marketing and what your business will look like and an awareness of the environment you are looking to operate in.

Customer profile
 

With the trend towards ‘digital business’, often your customer knows more about you than you do about them.  Consumers have become experts: at the touch of a smartphone or tablet they can educate themselves about any product or service, how much it should cost, the best way to get it and who to get it from.

No-one will ever part with money for your product or service unless you can convince them that it will solve a problem that they have.  Working out who you are selling to and what their problems are is the first task when writing your new marketing plan and establishing your customer profile.

If you are already in business you will probably already have a good feel for your customer profile – but take a look at your top / best-spending customers from the last 6 / 12 months and see how you can categorise the different types.

If you are just starting business then you need to make sure you have done your research.  If you are planning to launch into a market that you know nothing about then you need to make sure you partner up with someone who does!  That may be an external marketing advisor with experience of that sector or just someone who works in the industry that can answer your questions.

In reality, most companies only sell to one kind of customer – some sell to two or three.  If you sit down come up with lots of different types of people who you are trying to sell to, then you are trying to sell to too many.  Your resulting marketing will be too unfocused to be effective.  Or it may be that you are thinking about all the people you currently sell to, but don’t necessarily want to.  Focus just on the people you really want to target and who will likely earn you the most money from your efforts.

Once you have an idea of who you are selling to, it’s time to create a customer profile for each one. Regardless of whether you sell business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-consumer (B2C) you are still selling to people.  It will be a person who decides they need your product or service, a person who comes to your website, a person who places the order and a person who ultimately benefits from what you sell.  If you are B2B then a useful alternative would be to refer to them as H2H (human-to-human) or P2P (professional-to-professional)!

Have some fun with this.  Come up with names for each customer type – Tradesman Terry or Solicitor Sarah!  Find photos to put on their profile sheets, add in extra information like what websites they visit regularly or what motivates them.

Specifics within a customer profile
With your customer in mind, answer the following questions:

  • What is their gender?  Are the decision-makers mainly female, male or genuinely an equal mix of both?
  • How old are they as a rule of thumb?
  • What is their level of education?
  • What is their average income?
  • Do they need the product (either personally or in their business) or is it a luxury?
  • How do they use the product or service?
  • What do they value the most?  Not just about your product / service but in their job or day to day life.
  • Do they impulse buy the product or do they save for it?
  • Where do they go to get their decision making information? (Google / their contacts / seek professional advice?)
  • Where are they physically and geographically located?
  • What time of day would they look for your product or service?

If you can’t answer 8 out of the 10 ten questions about your customer then you are never going to be able to sell to them and you’ve failed to create a customer profile!  People will only pay you money if you can solve a problem for them – and you need to know what those problems are and how your product solves it.

Defining your customer profile dictates every marketing decision you make.  For example, if you are looking at using Google Pay Per Click advertising to capture people searching for what you sell, you need to know when they are online doing their buying.  Are they sat in an office 9-5 or are they a self-employed tradesperson who catches up on their admin in the evening?  What motivates them – is it simply enough to throw-in a surprise chocolate bar every now and again with orders to keep them coming back to you, or do they value the after-sales support more than the product itself?

Your unique selling point

Communicating your USP
 

There’s a lot of noise out there at the moment, and you would be forgiven for thinking that the only way to market a business any more is online or through social media. Communicating your USP can be difficult but having a unique selling point certainly makes the task easier as your customer will be drawn to you.

In truth you need to use a mix of channels (both online and in the real world) to communicate your USP to your target audience – and which one you use should be based on the people you are trying to connect with, not your own favourites.  You should have strategically worked this out already by creating your customer profile.

Channels of communication
Let’s take a look at all the different ways that you can communicate your USP to your potential customers:

  • Direct mail (leaflets or postcards sent in the post)
  • Direct email (electronic versions sent to prospects by email) and email newsletters (regularly weekly / monthly / quarterly email to your customers)
  • Google search (Pay-Per-Click, local results and search engine optimisation)
  • Social media (Facebook, Twitter etc)
  • LinkedIn
  • Direct phone calls
  • Dropping-in to your potentials customer’s place of business
  • Networking events
  • Trade shows
  • News stories (Industry magazines, local magazines, newspapers and websites)
  • Local directory booklets
  • Your own website
  • Blog posts (Your own website and others).
  • Local radio adverts
  • Display advertising (posters, billboards, bus adverts, signs etc)

Go back to the profile you wrote for your target customer and rate out of ten how well each communication channel fits with what you know about them.  Will you be able to drop in on Terry the Tradesman or contact him on LinkedIn?  Unlikely.  Will he be listening to the local radio and seeing adverts on the back of a bus as he’s driving his van between jobs?  Most definitely.  Solicitor Sarah will be sat at her desk most of the day, but how many emails does she get?  Would something fun in the post work better?

Once you have rated the different communication channels above against your profiles, pick the top three and concentrate on these first.  OK – you may love Facebook and be keen to do social media, but if something else fits with your customer profile better, do that first.

Now that you have planned how you are going to talk to potential customers, the next step is to work out what you are going to say.  This is where, again, having invested time learning about your customers and coming up with a point of difference for your business really pays off.

When communicating your USP, you only have a very short time to get your message across, so if it takes you 60 seconds to explain to someone why they should buy from you then that is 57 seconds too long!  Instead, you need to base your company marketing around one, strong concept that can be gotten across in a single short sentence.

Start by asking yourself the following questions about your customer:

  • What is your customer’s biggest headache and how can your product or service solve it for them?
  • Where do they want to take their business (or themselves personally) in the next 12 months and how can your product or service get them there?
  • What is their biggest fear, and how will your product or service stop this fear becoming a reality?

For example, airlines selling business class travel used to try and outdo each other by listing a whole range of reasons why they were better – building advertising campaigns around saying they had more leg-room, more free-drinks, quicker check-ins, softer beds and better food than their competition.  But it was British Airways who came to dominate the business travel market because they looked at what the customer wanted from business travel and summed it up in one point – if you travelled with BA Business class you would ‘arrive ready to do business’.  This gave them a single, strong message to build all their marketing around and you need the same for your business.

Use the three questions above.  Come up with a single, strong reason for someone to use your product or service that you can get across in a sentence.  And don’t be afraid to ask for help – find someone in the target market that you are looking to sell to and ask them if you can talk to them for half an hour about what messages will resonate with them the best.  Or spend an hour with an expert advisor who knows the marketplace and what motivates people in it.

Communicating your USP is essential – having the right message can often be the challenge.

Record growth for Yorkshire digital agency

Wednesday 11 April 2018

Creative digital marketing agency The Bigger Boat has achieved a record 43% increase in turnover for the period 2017-18. This substantial uplift in revenue follows significant change for the Mirfield-based company – founded in 2010 by directors Doug Main, Lee Boothroyd and Andy McCaul – whose services include branding, digital and search marketing. Creative director Doug recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses UK programme, after a successful application to this national – and well-recognised – scheme. Launched in 2010 – and designed to provide high-quality and practical support to leaders of small businesses in the UK – the opportunity was established to unlock the growth potential for more compact companies. Commenting on the course, Doug said: “It was fantastic to be chosen to participate and learn new skills. But the chance to liaise with – and bounce ideas off – fellow business owners has been invaluable, and left me with a real hunger to inject some fresh and forward-thinking ideas into how we run The Bigger Boat moving forwards.” The agency’s biggest growth to date also comes hot on the heels of a duo of key appointments, paving the way for an increase in their 60-strong customer base. Ruby Ribbons joins the team as a junior account manager, following a degree in communications at Northumbria University. She will be working on a number of client accounts – including UNTHA UK and SNF – and providing social media support as part of her role. Another notable staff member to join the creative crew is senior account manager Emma Heslop. With a wealth of experience in marketing – including 20 years in the design and print industry – Emma is already heavily involved in numerous client projects, and is currently handling the design and digital marketing for the agency’s biggest client, Little Tikes. Managing Director Andy McCaul said: “Both Ruby and Emma have the digital skills that we look for in all our staff – and have slotted into the team perfectly. With Emma’s vast experience, I am confident that she will bring a wealth of creative knowledge to the table.” Andy continued: “And Ruby has already embraced her role with an impressive level of commitment. We are looking forward to watching her grow and evolve in this environment.” The 11-strong agency is now on the lookout for a further account manager to increase its number, as their expansion continues into 2018.

Holmfirth property specialist recognised as a leading business figure

Tuesday 20 March 2018

Amy Wray – managing director of Holmfirth-based estate and lettings agent Applegate Properties – has been announced as one of Yorkshire Business Insider’s ‘42 under 42’. Established three years ago, the accolade recognises outstanding entrepreneurs in the region and predicts who will be leading business figures in a decade’s time. Each year, 42 professionals – all under the age of 42 – are hand-picked by the Business Insider teams from the North West, South West and Yorkshire. These individuals are selected not only for standing out within their region and industry, but also for demonstrating the potential to grow their businesses on a larger scale. Having founded the company in 2010, Amy has steadily expanded it and built a reputation for Applegate as the fastest growing estate and lettings agent in the Huddersfield and Holmfirth area. Starting out as a team of one, she has significantly expanded the workforce and now employs ten members of staff. Alongside the other to be recognised by Yorkshire Business Insider, Amy will be invited to a celebratory dinner at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. With some of the region’s most promising entrepreneurs and business figures, the event is set to be one of Yorkshire’s top networking evening for rising starts in the business world. Commenting on her achievement, Amy said: “I feel honoured and privileged to have been picked out from many other amazing business owners in the region. This is a great reward not only myself, but for the Applegate team as well. The business simply wouldn’t be where it is today without them all and the effort they put in. “It is thanks to every single employee – and the exceptional service we deliver – that over 70% of our new custom comes from word-of-mouth recommendations, and 98.9% of our existing clients would recommend us to someone else. I can’t wait for the dinner and I’m thrilled to have been invited to attend alongside some of the best professionals from the region.” This most recent acknowledgement follows the firm scooping up gold and silver in the 2017 Negotiator Awards – the UK’s leading programme for estate and lettings specialists.

Established in 1995, the accolade has previously been awarded to a diverse range – and size – of firms, and aims to recognise achievements made and also celebrate hard work, brilliance and innovation in business. Scriba has been selected as February’s winner of the award, which is open to applicants from organisations in the Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield regions. Each successful company is then automatically entered into the Business of the Year Award, where the overall annual victor will be revealed at a breakfast ceremony on 6 July at Huddersfield’s Cedar Court Hotel. Phil Clarke, Partner and member of the judging panel said: “Scriba PR stood out as a company that has grown through an innovative offering in a crowded marketplace. It is clear that there is continual reinvestment in the business, both in terms of developing systems and technologies, as well as staff training and well-being”. Katie Mallinson, managing director of Scriba, also commented on the firm’s achievement: “For the progress and hard work of the business to be recognised is so rewarding – and a great start to 2018! “I am so proud of our team and the consistent client growth over the past couple of years and I can’t wait to see what is next for Scriba – it is an exciting road ahead.” This acknowledgment follows Katie being awarded the Forward Ladies Start Up of the Year Award on both a regional and national scale, towards the end of 2017.

Digital agency unveils new image following its biggest year to date

Tuesday 13 February 2018

Marketing agency Splitpixel Creative has unveiled a fresh brand identity and a new website following a record year. This change is the largest facelift to date for the West Yorkshire-based company, which was founded in 2008. Following growth of 30% in 2017, and sizeable investment in new staff and premises, the agency plans to focus on further development of skills and technical processes over the next 12 months, as it celebrates a decade in business. The new website is built in WordPress, with marketing automation platform HubSpot integrated for lead generation and management. Following the approach used by the agency for its own clients, the new site places a greater emphasis on advice-led thought leadership content and downloads, in addition to highlighting key projects Splitpixel has completed in recent years. To retain recognition, the new logo has been simplified with a very light touch, and the original brand colours have been repurposed in various ways. Splitpixel designer, Rob Marshall, said, "As well as the branding, the previous custom-coded website was no longer a true reflection of the company. We wanted the focus to be on the content rather than intricate design, so it's been completely stripped back. The overpowering block colours of the previous iteration have gone, leaving a more grown-up, bold use of white space." The team of 12 – whose clients include West Yorkshire Playhouse, Arville Textiles and local charity Unique Ways – was recently shortlisted in the ‘Best Website’ category at the Northern Digital Awards, recognising the work completed on their biggest project to date, for Sodexo. Splitpixel's director, Charlie Herke, said, "To remain current, you need to evolve, and we've had a fabulous year of change – we’re still the approachable team we've always been, but our professionalism and results focus are now being represented. We wanted a fresh new image to show that the company has matured – and that we're ready for the next ten years. “The new website will be pivotal in positioning us as a strong digital agency within West Yorkshire, and in enabling us to work with other businesses who wish to realise their online potential.” The new website can be viewed here: https://www.splitpixel.co.uk/
