Working with business leaders.
What we do
Create projects, remove obstacles fund solutions.
So, we work with business leaders and their teams. With leaders, to help establish you as CEO or owner are happy you are in control. This article on The Five Maps of Adult Territory by my colleague Steve Barker, is part of this process. Being in control is about your life. Our work is effective because we deal with the right sequence of challenges in a business.
The sequence being:
- The leader: it maybe you or the project leader.
- Then with a product for example if something is not working, interrogate your offer. Is it clear? Is it better? Is it different? Is it cheaper? What do you want it to be? What exactly is your strategy for the product or service?
- If it is ok, then move on to other elements in the marketing mix…price, promotion, positioning, distribution
This is just a simplification of our approach to give you an overview. What’s vital is putting it into action and adapting, being agile based upon results. Set clear KPIs, budgets and financials.
It is to deliver effective work for clients and customer partners. We should delight them. I will act in different roles as MD, Marketing Director, Director, manager and salesman. My colleagues we work with support me.
The difference with o i solutions outsource in marketing is that it is “better and different.” We always say to customers when differentiating a service, and deciding on pricing you need to be better, different or cheaper. Hence, we are better because of expertise gained through years of practice, work, proven achievement and delivery. Different because of working in unusual areas of business compared to most marketers. So, we are equipped to deliver digital marketing, (critical, these days) but very specifically believe that a business MUST get its product/service i.e. its offer right before doing ANYTHING else. And our ongoing work at Dorset Business Angels, where people are creating new ideas all the time, gives us lots of working knowledge of this. Implementation is critical, so we also apply a simple SEE, HEAR and FEEL test to challenge colleagues on what they remember in any given situation to stay in the present in all business situations. More of that when we work together!
