Marketing strategy

Good creative work always follows a great plan of action – your marketing strategy. Whether you are looking to make your consumers aware of new products, trying to drive loyalty or even to undercut the competition, you’ll need to choose the best form of attack. I Certainly Wood helps clients to build the plan and also implement it too.

As part of that strategy we’ll look at your current and potential customer base, digging deep to reveal what your consumers think about your product and what persuades them to purchase. Knowing more about them means we’ll know when and how to target them.

Positioning your products or services is a very important part of the strategy. We’ll look at how to place your product or service in the market, differentiate it from competitors and send out the right messages to your audience.
