Bringing big business
marketing expertise to
your growing company
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.
So what do we mean by a Brief Engagement? We mean that we’ll do whatever you need doing, with no faffing. Then we’re gone. Unless you ask us to come back. Zero kerfuffle, maximum impact.
Things we are particularly experienced at:
What’s an Awesome Brief? It’s our knowledge and experience manifest in asking just the right questions and selecting the right supplier to get you an incredible result with zero fuss. When getting a great ROI is the only option and you are out of your comfort zone, we can navigate the entirety of the specialist marketing, ah, market with precision and a dose of authority on your behalf.
Things we can get under control for you:
Sorry, no trains or UFOs in our Brief Encounters. What you will get is a full day or half day of no-nonsense pragmatic marketing tools which you can put straight to work. Whether you are just setting out on your entrepreneurial journey or seeking inspiration to revitalise a tired business we have a workshop (and a networking opportunity) for you.
