A marketing package is bespoke to you and your business. We don’t believe it set quotas of x number of social posts a month, or y number of blogs month-in-month-out. The package and strategy that is created to your objectives and is refreshed every quarter.  

 

Tactics that many of our clients use include social media marketing, SEO, content updates, such as blog writing for your website, PPC (pay per click) advertising and monthly reporting.

For small businesses, the most effective marketing strategies often involves a mix of digital and traditional methods tailored to your specific audience and budget. It also has the potential to scale up as the marketing delivers more revenue to your business.

 

Digital marketing can consist of content marketing such as blog posts, social media marketing, local SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), email marketing and pay-per-plick (PPC) advertising using platforms such as Google Ads and Facebook Ads.

 

Traditional marketing methods may involve some graphic design such as logo design, and other print material such as business stationery or brochure design. 

 

Other traditional methods include networking, attending events and generating reviews and referrals, for which we can support by creating marketing and sales materials.


At Growth by Design we use our unique Common 10 Marketing Model to tailor our marketing packages to align with your business goals.

Outsourcing your marketing provides access to a team of marketing specialists who deliver enhanced business reputation, generate more enquiries and leads, win more business, and increase the lifetime value of your customers in a cost-effective way.

 

To achieve this in-house, your options are to:

  1. Hire a lot of people straight away
  2. Put all your marketing eggs in one basket, and hire a specialist in just one tactic
  3. hunt for a unicorn and find someone who can do it all for you to an expert level!

 

None of the alternatives sound that attractive!

Typically, clients begin to see noticeable improvements within 3-6 months. However, this can be shorter depending on the level of investment and the use of more intensive strategies which may show significant results in a shorter timeframe.

We use key performance indicators (KPIs) such as website traffic, conversion rates, social media engagement, ROI from marketing campaigns, lead generation, and overall brand visibility to monitor the success of your marketing.

 

Critically, we focus on the end business result - the number of and values of sales/orders for your business.

 

This is important to track ROI (return on investment) to make informed decisions about growing and scaling your business.
