Marketing advice for SME’s – it doesn’t need to be costly
Marketing Week’s article “How SMEs can make marketing add up” was thought provoking and we totally agree with their Marketing advice for SME’s – it doesn’t need to be costly!
Marketing isn’t just about costly flashy adverts or trying to interpret the convoluted statistics behind your social media, it’s about enhancing the customer experience both pre, post and during the buying decision. Building top level sales teams, running a national merchandising force or training a front line customer experience team can seem daunting but this is where Field Marketing comes in to its own.
Field Marketing is a flexible, professional addition for your business, and can be used tactically ie for a day or a week at a time, or strategically, quarterly or annually. By using Field Marketing, you can benefit from the same high level of professional skill sets as the top 100 FMCG companies – most of whom outsource some or all of their front line sales / customer experience events to this little known marketing service.
Field Marketing is about making a difference at that all important point of purchase by:
- Putting products in the customer’s eyeline and in danger of being purchased
- Training store / restaurant staff to sell
- Sampling or demonstrating products
- Selling off the van, including reconciling cash with the C&C’s
Add data and insight to these services, and we help you to plan and forecast accurately, optimising stores whereby you only visit the outlets with the biggest potential.
