Guide to Marketing Services

Marketing - delivering a strong message to the right people in a way that persuades them to do what you want them to do, whether it’s to buy your brand of product or use your service. It sounds simple enough but as many businesses know, it’s not that easy, and that is why they get the professionals in.

There are many ways in which you can market your business these days with the Internet, television, telephone, radio, billboards, leaflets and mobile phones, all popular marketing media. But can you afford to use them all? Which is best for your business? What is the message? How can you communicate that to consumers? These are all questions to ask your chosen marketing professional.

If you’re thinking of marketing your company the first thing you need is to have something to promote, i.e. a corporate identity. For this type of marketing exercise it is good to use a company that’s nearby, although this is not essential that you do. Using the City Visitor directory you can find design agencies in Rotherham, Leeds, Milton Keynes and Leicester, graphic design companies in Stoke, Sheffield and Southampton and marketing in Nottingham, and marketing consultants in Cambridge, Colchester and Cardiff, but these are only some examples of the variety of companies you can find in our directory to help you create a brand.

One of the most affordable and effective ways to market your business is via a website. For this you will need to employ the services of both a web design company and an internet marketing company to promote your website. When it comes to web design you probably don't need to be close to your chosen web company as you can do a lot of your communication over the phone. This means that if you’re in St Ives you can opt for web design companies in London, Edinburgh, Belfast, Glasgow or Manchester and Internet marketing companies in Brighton, Birmingham, Harrogate or Leeds.

With all these in place you can then think about employing the services of an advertising agency or marketing agency to help put your business on the map. The companies can arrange a variety of marketing campaigns in a range of locations depending on what you want to achieve.

Why not ring round some companies offering marketing services and see what they can do for you, you'll find the numbers in the City Visitor directory.
