Why Matrix

Marketing leadership – as and when you need it

Many businesses don’t need a full-time marketing director or CMO. But every business is likely to benefit from senior strategic input to guide its marketing team and budget as it looks to grow.

We provide that expertise, either in small doses or on a project basis. We engage your target audiences by enhancing and elevating your marketing activity. The result is more refined and focused activity that improves performance, drives sales and fuels growth.

We use a marketing matrix to identify the key marketing and revenue opportunities in your business. We then create a tailored plan of action that best meets the needs of you and your customers. We can normally achieve this by working alongside you for two to five days a month.

About Us

Our Approach

Engage. Enhance. Elevate

Engage: To make a successful sale you need to understand your customers and prospects, their needs and what matters to them. Your existing customers will often hold valuable insights. We’ll help you engage more effectively with customers and prospects that are clearly defined and pleasantly profitable.

Enhance: There are fundamentals that need to be in good working order if you want to make the most of the attention you secure. These might include brand and product propositions. We know how to simplify yet enhance them to achieve higher conversion rates.

Elevate: Maybe your day-to-day marketing is working well and you just need to find ways of differentiating your offering or further accelerating growth. We can devise innovative marketing strategies, support product launches and work with you to generate new ideas and boost revenue.

When we start working with you we’ll quickly get to grips with your business and its key financial and customer goals. We’ll also identify where your marketing pain points are. Then we’ll tailor a matrix solution – or several – so we can discuss the right strategy for your business, your resources and your priorities.
