Marketing

Providing marketing solutions tailored to your needs

We believe in the personal touch. Our aim is simply to help transform company vision into a reality.

We view each client as unique; investing time and effort to listen to your needs and understand your business aspirations. We want to know what drives and motivates you, and examine the full potential of your Social Enterprise before we even consider the skeleton of a Business Plan. We do this by recruiting mentors with extensive multi-discipline experience and who demonstrate the skills to make a difference.

Our Advisors originate from varied industry backgrounds bringing our clients a depth of experience in both traditional and digital marketing. For each assignment we hand-pick one of our suitably qualified Business Advisors providing you with relevant one-to-one experience and continuity in account handling.

From trade shows to twitter feeds

Do you want to grow your business but lack the knowledge or budgets to make things happen? Are you confused by terms such as Web design, Blogging, Social Media, and ecommerce? Do you feel intimidated by mobile marketing, or wonder how to obtain PR coverage? From trade shows to twitter feeds, we understand the relationships between activities and provide guidance to manage each stage of development to deliver the best results.

We never leave anything to chance. Our Business Advisors take a holistic view: advocating integrated solutions across the full marketing mix. We will review opportunities specific to your individual business needs and consider every aspect of promotion from advertising to Public Relations and from web performance to email marketing. We can provide guidance on not only what should be in your plan, but explain the why and how to do it for after we leave.

We also provide secondary research to support our findings or by taking your instructions CEIS can simply provide you with a database of contacts to target your audience both on and offline.
Our skills include:

  • Service / product market entry
  • Re-branding and re-positioning
  • Digital promotion including paid and organic search
  • Web Design and content strategy

Delivering your training needs

To many social enterprises marketing can be quite intimidating. We understand this, which explains why we go further. By supporting our services with training in the areas of selling, negotiation, and demystifying the web we help to develop the skills of the social enterprise completing the journey from CEIS strategy provision to self-delivery.
