MARKETING CONSULTANCY

“Holloways have been a part of our business for the past 6 years. Marketing used to be scary, now it’s fun and produces results! Thanks Holloways for your professional approach and solutions that work.”

Shayne O’Hagan
Ideal Cars
Hamilton

 
"Holloways is able to provide an interesting and exciting approach to advertising campaigns.  Their approach is derived from years of experience of Mark Holloway.  Mark understands the difference in which small to medium business’ need to apply marketing compared with the large companies, with million dollar advertising budgets.

With Holloways it is really refreshing to have an account manager who is able to identify with our products and services and what we are trying to achieve, and show complete commitment to us, with setting goals and working with us to achieve them.

Their ‘ownership’ of our marketing really comes across, as they always refer to us as ‘we’ during discussions and updates with sales and advertising campaigns.

In addition, we have had great ideas presented to us to implement on our website.  This is exciting as the internet is how customers research and shop these days, and through Holloways we will have a website that will be informative and interactive."

Paul Farrell
Coastal Motorhomes and Caravans Ltd
Whakatane

 
“Throughout the consultancy, Holloway’s has helped us to improve our sales training. We now have a much shorter sales process and the sales training has helped us to sell even more! Our testing and measuring has also identified campaigns which we know work for our business.”

Tony Hill
Tuaropaki Communications
Taupo

 
To all the Holloway Team,

We have been involved with your team for almost a year now and it has been an unforgettable experience.

As a smaller Plumbing company with eight employees we have always relied on our reputation to bring in work and have never seen the need to spend money on marketing, (we didn’t notice the market changing).

However looking back over the past year I now have a clear picture of how far our company could have gone with good marketing systems in place and wish we had opened our eyes sooner.

Any marketing we did in the past was restricted to “Hit & Miss” advertising in newspapers, Yellow pages, Magazines etc. We had no idea where our work came from or how effective our advertising was. The Holloway approach has produced greater results at no extra cost and has bought us closer to our clients than any other attempt we ever had.

Working with you has been one of the best investments I have ever made in our Business and the single biggest challenge it has created is “How to handle the number of leads” which we were not prepared for. Thank you again, we look forward to working with you again in and taking our business to another level. 

Regards

Ralph McBeth

“We’ve found the planned marketing that Holloways have suggested as a real insight into our marketing. We’ve got our team doing the sales training which we’ve found to be a huge success. The whole team is taught to take part and share experiences as well as learning the key steps to actually closing a sale and it’s a really cost effective way to increase our sales. We’re seeing great results so far.”

Jason and Kim Barry
Linkup Paints (BOP) Limited

 
“I’ve already learned heaps about my business. We are going to have much more control over our advertising and marketing now, and I’m excited about that...I have been inspired to work on my marketing and got my team involved with coming up with ideas and letting them know what we will be focusing on.”

Sara-Lee Sisson
Stewart Motors

“What you’ve given us is as much coaching as it is marketing advice. The marketing advice will work to increase our sales because of the coaching you’ve included in this programme."

Peter Dunkin
PCD Fire Systems

 
“You taught me all the things I already knew but had no system to make them happen! Thanks to you we’re going to be able to build a system that makes our whole sales team do all the things we know we should to increase our sales – but just never get around to.”

Gordon Smith
Direct Group/Stitch-It Embroidery

 
“We worked with Holloway’s for about two years. Amongst the campaigns we have worked on, there have been two main projects that have been important to helping us become more sales focused.  The first, was to encourage and teach us how to hold seminars for woodlot owners, which have proven to be a great source of new leads.  The second, was producing a newspaper for farmers.  The broadsheet provides advice and information on how to maximise their return on forestry investment.  Most of our clients and team are normal, down to earth people, they like the informative approach to advertising that Holloway’s offer.”

Peter Weblin
Marketing Manager
PF Olsen

 
“With the Holloway consultancy, I found their approach professional and easy to understand. We ran 20 press ads (and more because they worked) and found several key products that always sell. The approach is different and it’s common sense and that’s what I like.”

Ashley Milliken

"The first month of the Holloway programme involved a discovery period where both Holloways and I learnt more about our business and our secret strengths.  A very professional marketing plan was compiled and written at the end of three months.  This document is a very useful asset and formed the base for the marketing programme"

Phil Sinton

“Holloway’s way of portraying Credit Union on TV has brought people through the door, and a big gain in business”.

Dave Oliver

“I saw the Holloway’s ad and I knew that if they could give me what they said they could, it would be a huge boost for my new business. I met the team and after talking to them they were able to produce an ad for me which has had fantastic sales results - just what they promised, and a great start for my new business!”

Wendy Talbot
 
“We used Holloway’s’ Scientific Advertising approach for 11 years and it always worked for us.”

Brian Scantlebury
 
"When we use Holloways our advertising almost always brings surprising results. What's more, our competitors all over the country comment on what we are doing".

Warren Huband
Hubands Retravision

 
"Holloway is mad about advertising. He believes good advertising to be the solution for the commercial world’s ills. I have watched him create fresh, effective advertising messages for years and consider him one of the best in the business."
