Frequently Asked Questions

Q - How much does your marketing consultancy cost?

A - We can work on a fixed cost project or a monthly retainer.  A monthly retainer can range from £1,500 to £5,000 per month depending on the level of service your company needs. A monthly retainer guarantees you'll receive the marketing services you need each month and we ensure we have those hours available to you.  To start with you may wish to work with us on a project basis to see how it goes.

We provide the initial marketing consultation FREE OF CHARGE and following a face-to-face meeting will provide a marketing proposal on how we can work together with costs. 

Q - When can I expect to see results from the marketing?

A - Usually you can expect to see marketing results within three to six months of us working together and we always try to identify quick wins for clients. We prefer to work with clients for at least 18 months to maximise the impact of their marketing.

Q - I have a web design agency in place will that conflict with what you offer?

A - We can offer services that are complimentary to any existing marketing services provided by your web design agency or other agencies. The ultimate aim is that all parties work well together to create the best marketing proposition possible for your business. 

However, if you could like to develop a new website we can project manage this on your behalf and recommend partners who have worked with us and provide competitive quotes.

Q - How can I justify the marketing budget to bring you in?

A - We will conduct a marketing review with you at the end of the project or on a quarterly basis if we're on a retainer.  At the review we'll provide evidence that we have improved marketing effectiveness and delivered a good return on investment. If your marketing is already working we'll see if we can reduce costs.

Q - I have a marketing team with a marketing director, why would I need you as well?

A - Marketing is about knowledge and creativity and often getting an external view from someone with different marketing knowledge and expertise can generate new ideas without the cost of taking on another marketer.

Q When can you start as our marketing consultant?

A - Other work permitting, as soon as possible. The initial meeting would take place within a week of contact with a proposal to follow shortly after.

Q How long are your courses?

A - Our courses are half days (9.30am-12.30pm) and full days (9.30am-4.30pm)

 Q How much are your courses?

A - Our public courses half day curses are priced at £63.65 (£50 plus VAT plus the Eventrite fee) and full days at £125.39 (£99 plus VAT plus Eventbrite fee) and our tailored courses are priced slightly differently. We often offer discounts if more than one course is booked, so call us to talk through the figures.

Q How often do your courses run? 

A - Marketing planning and LinkedIn courses run every month.  We will be testing new courses and if popular we will run them every month too.

Q  Do you provide lunch for the full day course?

A - To keep the cost down we decided not to provide lunch but you'll have an hour to visit the many local cafes and sandwich bars close by.

Q Where is a schedule of your public courses? 

A - All available dates for our courses are shown mid-way down the specific course page.

Q What happens if I am unable to attend a course? 

A - Sorry we can't afford to offer refunds but if you cancel within 14 days of the date the course you can attend a later course, of the same cost, for free.
