For me, success is having that fizzy, excited feeling when I've helped a client achieve. The achievements may be marketing or commercially led, it might be because of the training I have given, the growth they visualised, or the team I recruited and trained for them.
More importantly though, what does success look like to you? Once you recognise what makes you sing, all we have to do next is to build on that so that success comes naturally - eat, sleep, rinse, repeat.
Have browse through some of my success stories. Then, if you like what you've read, give me a buzz and let's see how I can help you succeed.
CNG Design supply and install quality kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms from Stonehaven down to Dundee (and everywhere in between). Owner and director Chris Graham wanted to come out of lockdown with a smile making order book.
As marketing consultant I approach every client exactly the same way - by taking them through an indepth discovery session. By drilling down into CNG Design, I was able to clearly see and map out a strategy for exiting out of lockdown. This is a pathway to small business marketing success.
Chris knows what he's doing. His ideas are great but like most business owners, he is time short and needs to rely on someone to activate and manage his marketing campaigns.
CNG Design's social media platforms have been activated and the engagement we now receive is fantastic!
All the marketing activities which have taken place have all been strategically driven with the end result that CNG Design now has a full order book until January 2021.
We are also just about to launch an AWESOME initiative on December 18 2020 - one which we hope will go down EXTRA-ordinarily well - so eyes peeled!
So it's hats off to everyone at CNG Design - because it takes team work to make everything fall neatly into place.
