Marketing Consultancy

6 simple ways a MARKETING CONSULTANCY can bring your business huge growth!

 
1.     We do our homework first
Instead of rushing in and making ads, brochures and websites, Holloway & Hudson will spend a month asking questions first. This allows us find out WHICH MESSAGES ARE LIKELY TO WORK in marketing and advertising - and just as importantly, what dosen't.
 
2.     We train you to sell
When a business gets an increase in enquiry, it can be quite common to have trouble converting all the enquiry further. As a result, they lose most of the potential new sales. We teach you how to sell before the demand starts.  
 
3.     We test and measure MANY different ways to advertise
To increase sales, your business needs to have five or more SUCCESSFUL WAYS to generate new leads. We keep testing until that happens for you.
 
4.     We don’t stop training your people to sell, ever!
We keep training them, we keep measuring their results and keep helping them to improve. Training once is not enough!   
 
5.     We build an inventory of what works for you (and what doesn’t)
Your business keeps repeating its failures because you never record them. We record all your marketing results, the success and the failures, so you NEVER REPEAT THE FAILURES again.  
 
6.     All it costs is the price of one staff member
Our monthly fee which is around the equivalent of the cost of an extra staff member. Yet for that price you get the expertise of the entire Holloway & Hudson team. You pay for the equivalent of one junior, but will get the expertise of our trained professionals.
 

Your Holloway Marketing Consultant WRITES AND PROJECT MANAGES all your marketing.

 
Not only that, they'll help you test and measure every single marketing campaign and THEY TEACH YOUR PEOPLE TO SELL. On top of that, you'll get the work of our design studio completely FREE – all you have to do is agree to let Holloway & Hudson focus entirely on marketing that will increase sales.
If your business is lucky enough to become part of this wonderful way to market, your Holloway & Huson Marketing Consultant will call you every week. They will then spend the first month learning everything they can about your business. We call this the ‘discovery period’ and it allows us to learn your secret strengths – without which your marketing will never work.

The entire Holloway & Hudson Marketing Consulting Service is systemised, researched, and proven. Everything is planned! Before you even start, we know what we are going to do for you each and every week of the year. Because getting results in marketing requires precision, detail and systems.

Then your Marketing Consultant writes a marketing plan just for your business – this is not some ‘stuffy’ document, but rather a blueprint for what you and your consultant are going to do to build massive growth in your business.

Your marketing plan also includes a complete timeline of when your marketing campaigns should start and finish, how they will be tested and measured, and an idea of the costs that will be involved in printing and advertising. And then your marketing starts. It might start with a campaign of classified advertising to test the most effective headlines and offers. Or it might start with a campaign of teaching your team, managers, franchisees and other staff to sell, but only if that’s likely to increase your sales.
 

Have you realised that your BUSINESS SURVIVES IN SPITE OF YOUR MARKETING, and not because of it?

 
If you want your marketing to work, it will have to be much more sensible and basic than most of the things you’re doing right now.

The good news is that the simpler things cost less!  Here are four steps to SPENDING LESS and getting RESULTS FROM YOUR MARKETING.

1. THINK OF EVERYTHING YOU DO (TO MAKE A SALE) AS MARKETING - it’s not just ads and websites, it’s also phone calls to follow up a quote.
What you say when you phone a prospect, has more chance of getting you a customer than most ads ever will. The same goes for customer evenings – did you know that even discount retailers like Noel Leeming and Harvey Norman get most of their sales from repeat business? Getting the phone numbers and emails of everyone who ever buys from you is much more important than running an ad. Are you doing that?

And what about phone calls to customers just to ask them if they were happy with the panel beating job you did for them, or the way you mowed their lawn, or the jacket, or lounge suite or pet puppy they bought from you. I guarantee you’ll get more sales doing that than from many of the ads you’ve run. Shyness is no excuse! Michael Hill was painfully shy, but look at him go!

2. TEST AND MEASURE EVERYTHING YOU DO - but keep it simple!
You don’t need to get clever. For instance; say you phone 100 past customers and invite them to a special evening. If 20 of them say they are interested, jot that statistic down – (100 calls/20 said yes = 20% conversion rate). You didn’t need a computer for that did you!
 
  • Just before the customer evening you’ll need to phone them again to check they’re still coming. If half of them say they can’t make it, jot that down too – (20 followup calls/10 confirmations = 50% conversion rate)
  • Those figures tell you what to expect next time. If you want 30 people at your customer evening you’ll need to call 300 people. But don’t panic – many businesses get better results with smaller numbers.

3. MOST OF YOUR BUSINESS COMES FROM REFERRALS -  so say in your marketing the same things you say to people you talk to in person.
The reason your ads, emails, letters and websites fail is because the message is wrong. Let’s be honest, most of them don’t even have much of a message – just a list of why you’re so good, or so cheap or so fast or whatever. Who cares? Your customers don’t, they care only about themselves.

4. WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT TO SAY it will be obvious what sort of marketing you need to use.
The best way I can demonstrate this is to carry on the example of the mechanic. Now he knows he needs to give advice, just like he gives in person, but this time in his marketing. Marketing will allow him to give that advice to more people. Marketing is just mass communication. He could give that sort of advice in a newspaper ad, but that would cost him a lot. What if he was to hold a customer evening, a kind of mini night class on how to spot problems with your car before they happen and save money on repair costs as a result? Or if he’s too shy, to do that he could get someone he knows, who is not so shy, to do a wee YouTube video on the same subject and then email it out to all his customers who say they’d like to have that information. Pretty soon they’ll be flicking it to their mates. Excellent marketing and just about FREE!

Did you know that TESTING AND MEASURING your marketing is the most effective way to boost your sales and profits?


In early 2006 Mark Holloway invented a RADICAL NEW WAY TO MARKET SMALL TO MEDIUM BUSINESSES – now his methods are revolutionising the way everyday businesses in New Zealand are marketing themselves. Mark Holloway says that his company’s Marketing Consultancy is only radical because it works, when so much other marketing does not! 

Holloway says this is because so many small to medium businesses (SMEs) in NZ are suffering and don’t know what to do about it. “No one is helping these business people. Thousands of them go broke every year because they don’t know how to increase their sales or get better results from their marketing. The biggest pity is that it is such a simple problem to solve.” Holloway says company owners get the sales and marketing part of what they do wrong because they ARE SO BUSY WORKING IN THEIR BUSINESSES that they never get the time to do the things that will make their marketing work better and increase their sales. The businesses who take on a Holloway Consultancy are experiencing a whole new way to market themselves AND IMPROVE THEIR LIFESTYLES AND INCOME!
