Work out the marketing

you need to do

and why

Does this sound like you?


You’ve successfully grown your own business but reached a plateau.

You don’t have any marketing resource of your own.

You have a specific project that you want doing well.

You'd love to have an experienced senior marketer on your team but can’t afford permanent resource.

You have no intention of letting a big marketing agency push you around.

You’ve tried to do some marketing but you’re not sure it’s hitting the mark.

So you think you should do some marketing. But what even is marketing?

Brief Marketing can…

come to your growing business to define, enhance or run marketing elements briefly or brief others to do so on your behalf. Or if you prefer we can equip you with the tools to do it yourself.

Brief Engagements

Our Brief Engagements start with a visit to get to know your business problem – we ask a lot of questions! From this we propose how we can help solve it for you – both what we can do and on what basis. Think of us as a trusted member of your own team.

Awesome Briefs

We are not experts at doing everything. We will be honest when we’re not, and will find, brief and manage the specialist on your behalf, avoiding the time, effort and quality pitfalls of going to the market blind. Think of us as guardians of your investment.

Brief Encounters

Sorry, no trains or UFOs in our Brief Encounters. If you’d like to gain new skills, new contacts and tools that will increase your effectiveness immediately then book onto one of our seminars. Think of us as your (marketing) personal trainers.
