Marketing Consultant in Essex UK

Marketing Professional offers 360 degree Marketing Support

I’m not here just to take your money for your marketing vanity projects. I’ll always look at what you’re proposing to do from a Return on Investment ROI point of view.

Example Request for Quotation RFQ:

A newly formed company recently asked me to come up with a year one start-up marketing plan to generate new business. They’d compiled a list of things they thought were needed like: a business card, an 8 page website, some media advertising, media press releases and social media etc. They only had a tiny budget. Return on investment would’ve been one to ten in year one. So a business failure by insolvency where the wasted marketing budget is ten times the value of all the new business generated in year one.

We’re not talking about an ebay hobby trader here, this is a serious person who needed to actually earn some cash from their work to pay the bills in year one.

Advice given:

My advice was, not to waste any money on vanity projects. They don’t matter. Instead concentrate on the business cards and have a single holding website homepage with a contact form. Then get out there and use the network marketing channel to generate your new business in year one. Simple but very effective. Watch out for the magic figure of ten to one return on investment. This is where they’d make ten times the amount in new business generated, over what money was invested in their marketing. Result is a business success.

Share this firm’s success by contacting Laurence Dunn at Marketing in Essex when you’re in a similar situation. Rather than the money burning marketing agency you already deal with, or have the misfortune to bump into at your next networking breakfast!

I’m a talented Marketing Professional. I first joined the CIM as an Affiliate Professional in 2007. I was then elected as full MCIM member by the CIM Chartered Institute of Marketing in July 2013. They don’t just give MCIM accreditation out, you do have to prove you’ve had at least five years work experience being a professional marketer. Since then I’ve attained my 2016 and 2017 Chartered CPD certificates. These are issued once a year based on your actual work submitted to CIM and checked by CIM fellows. This not for academic activity that was attained in the nineteen eighties!

After full industrial technical training for 10 years, I started off selling print in the mid-1980s.  As a result of the internet I now also have many digital media skills. I’ve plenty of traditional media experience from 20 years gained from working at many London agencies; Ogilvy, Hogarth, Alcone, and Altavia. I then went on to start my own business called Journeys Multimedia in 2008.

I first branded myself in 2008 with the trading name “Journeys Multimedia” then changed to “Marketing in Essex”, in 2015, as this seemed more appropriate for my marketing services.

Native App for iOS, Android or Windows

Native App for iOS, Android or Windows

By on 15th October 2015

What is a Native App?

Apps or Applications are nothing new, they’ve been around since computers have been in existence. The key requirement of a good native app or application is to make the computer or device function in the way you the user wants it to.

Why do you need to make a Native App?

In the case of a company you may have a brilliant website. You may have brilliant world leading staff with the best technical expertise and product knowledge about your widgets. The company may have world beating products and services. All of this product information is usually disseminated by the company online via several hundred technical documents which can only be found if you have a few hours to spare. Sadly in our fast moving 24-7-365 world most busy people do not have the luxury of time to endlessly browse for the bits of information they need.

Who needs robots when humans are the customers?

An app would make this task simpler for your Company by offering a shorter route to that nugget of information, without getting Google involved. Crucially the Internet is not always available, so your “company app” would work offline without the need for the internet except for updates and contact us for assistance. It is information when you need it, when you’re off grid. So when you decide it is time to put most of the information that people want into one small piece of Software called the “Your Company APP” with a strap line that is going to be “company in your pocket”. This can be made for your iPhone or iPad and later you could produce Android and Windows versions of the App.
