Completed over one or three months, this consultancy and training process is designed for small businesses to uncover their customer’s needs and find untapped opportunities for marketing and communications.

During this process we also complete an internal marketing skills audit and create a triaged list of marketing actions. The process is education heavy as we want to supply your team to work cost effectively with numerous materials to enable them to complete core SEO and content tasks.
