Brand & Marketing Management
Marketing strategy is one of the critical factors that separate high-growth accounting companies from low-growth ones. However, it’s not always the amount of money a company spends distinguishes the winner and the loser.
It’s how they opt to capitalize on their marketing budget.
What is the purpose of marketing strategy?
Marketing is all about satisfying customer needs. In any type of business, regardless of the size or capital base, marketing is the catalyst to improving sales by converting potential customers into loyal clients, while retaining the existing ones.
While large firms that have branches in various cities often have dedicated PR and marketing teams to handle their business development, it is essential for smaller firms to be strategic in their marketing efforts. Most small accounting firms won’t have a marketing team to help them get clients.
If you are running a small firm, our experts can help you overcome this problem. You will walk away with:
- A positioning statement that clearly defines your company’s target customer, their most relevant unmet need, your key point of difference, and the “reasons to believe”.
- Clearly defined marketing objectives, the strategies to drive those objectives and a path to choosing the most relevant, budget-appropriate tactics.
To ensure the foundation is put into place, we start with
