Common sense would teach us that if you think something isn’t working then more than likely it’s not!


How a little boy with cancer taught his Dad a more effective way to market!

Hi, Mark Holloway here. This is the story of how my son taught me these COMMON SENSE ways to increase sales for small to medium businesses just like yours.

Twenty-five years ago I was young. I was in marketing. And I had too high an opinion of myself. I was hell-bent on producing clever brand marketing. My work was winning advertising and marketing awards, and I was having a grand old time. And although the marketing I made for my clients created lots of awareness, it generated very few sales. I didn’t know it then, but that is typical of all brand advertising – it makes people aware, but almost never sells anything.

Unfortunately ‘clever’ marketing people would rather skid about on the irrelevant surface of ‘creative brilliance’ than do the hard work needed to get sales from marketing. I am ashamed to admit that I was one of them.

Free marketing toolbox
Are you doing everything you can to get the best results from your marketing?

Our free marketing tools and help section has been designed to help you focus your sales and marketing efforts in areas that are likely to generate results. The topics shown in the Marketing Toolbox cover a wide range of marketing subjects and are designed to allow you to get stuck in and started at your own pace.


Remember your customer is the only true judge of what works in your marketing!

1 Find out what ALREADY WORKS

The first fundamental rule is to take what already works (or has worked in the past) and find ways of using that to grow your business – then D.S.T.C them!

Discover your strengths
Systemise them so everyone in your team is able to replicate them
Train your team to embrace your systems and follow them
Communicate your strengths to your customers with effective marketing

Once you have uncovered what is (or has been) working for you, you need to make those things the focus of your everyday business life.

2The HARDER and CHEAPER your marketing is, the MORE LIKELY IT IS TO WORK!

When it comes to marketing, we as business owners and managers often search out the easiest option first. The truth is, we have been tricked into thinking that effective marketing is flashy ads, radio jingles and glossy brochures. More often than not, the things that actually work are often cheaper to implement and are the things that we would rather not do because they are hard work - like phone calls to past customers and seminars.

3 Focus on the 5 BUILDING BLOCKS of marketing success

It’s not uncommon for business owners to get stuck in a pattern where they are focused on marketing that is only about lead generation. The truth is, it can be quite hard to create a massive increase in new enquiry year in and year out. A well-rounded marketing approach requires you to focus on more than just generating new leads.

Try to create small, sustainable changes in each of the following areas:
  1. Your ability to attract new leads
  2. Your ability to convert leads into sales
  3. The average sale value
  4. The frequency of which your customers purchase
  5. The margin you earn from each sale

Working with you has been one of the best investments I have ever made. The 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 and taking our business to another level.
