Who needs marketing anyway?

If your business wants to cut through the noise in a marketplace where consumers are being bombarded with information from so many sources, having a dedicated marketing function is essential. So to answer the question of who needs marketing... everyone! 

It is a varied industry - with plenty of sub-specialisms and niché skillsets. All working together to: 
  • Increase Brand Awareness - from the creation of brand identity through to how it is represented to your audience - this is a key aspect of marketing.
  • Attract New Cusotmers & Generate Revenue - strategies will be developed to bring new people to your brand and increase sales revenues for your business. A variety of channels may be used to achieve this, from social media to PR to paid search - whichever provides the best return on investment. 
  • Keep Customers Loyal - with such a competitive marketplace and your competitors vying to bring your customers onboard, you can't rest easy. Loyalty programmes, engagement strategies and personalised communication all form part of a retention strategy. 
  • Plan for the Future - marketing teams need to work alongside other departments within your business to ensure their strategy aligns with the overall business strategy. They can help with market data analysis, set targets and put together plans to ensure success. 
  • Gain an Advantage - teams will conduct market research, undertake consumer behaviour research and look at trends to help you stay ahead of your competition. A strong marketing strategy can make all the difference to getting ahead.
