Laurence Dunn Marketing Specialist MCIM

I set my own micro enterprise up back in 1997, as I needed to earn extra money. This works well with contracting. I’m human rather than Palo Alto algorithm, so happy to join you for a drink down the pub to discuss plans. I’ve worked for many small brands and businesses, Wass Pritchard and Spider Web in the 80s. Then I moved on to the club-flyer trailblazers Wide Boys based in Covent Garden back in 1992. After 5 years of that in 1997, I moved on to some larger brand marketing and advertising agencies who worked on retained accounts and pitches for clients like: IBM, Mars, Costa, Q8, Mercedes Benz, Shell and Unilever.

I’ve also worked clientside for the UK office of a German upper-sized Mittelstand firm who own the industrial filter brand called BOLLFILTER also known as BOLL or BOLL & KIRCH This GmbH business has global reach. They manufacture Germany and China and sell a diverse range of industrial and marine filtration products in most locations in the world. From 2012 I audited their UK marketing activity and the performance was checked via analytics. Unnecessary spends were reduced for a more efficient deployment of brand resources.” Ten years on my job is done, they’re on the right track.

Why marketing is crucial for continued business success

Many businesses have relegated marketing to the eighth division of company importance. It comes after these 8 subjects below have been fully funded…

  • Financial accounting
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Future planning
  • Staffing
  • Production efficiency
  • Workplace ambience
  • Company vehicles
  • Marketing

This is a very big mistake. These businesses will not survive modern trading, soon to dissappear into oblivion or much reduced size like Kodak did with the onset of mobile phones and digital photography. Marketing should be second division at least. It focuses your mind on the MARKET and what is happening in the world. If you are too focused on your pond, you won’t notice the Tsunami coming from the ocean. Only the most carefully market conscious businesses can survive in the 21st century. Why remain in the 19th century? Get a marketing plan now!

Example request for quotation RFQ

A newly formed business recently asked us 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 business cards, 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

Do not waste any money on vanity projects. They don’t matter. Instead concentrate on the business card and get “Google my Business” set up, to gain some five star reviews or credibility, in the ever connected social media world. Then if you want, have a single holding website homepage with a contact form. Then get out there and use the network marketing social media channels 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.
