WHAT WE DO

At ICING Marketing, we believe the best results come from keeping things simple, so we have devised 3 jargon free programmes based on our WWW approach to support businesses with their marketing thinking

 

Our programmes are based on recognised marketing theories, which we have adapted into simple, practical and affordable tools that can be applied to any business. Each programme is tailored to your needs and budget, and can be provided as team workshops, or as 1-2-1 support.

DEFINE YOUR BRAND - BRAND DISCOVERY & MAPPING

  • Do you find it hard to pitch your business to potential customers?
  • Are there several aspects to your business that seem disjointed and need pulling together under 1 umbrella?
  • Do you lack common messaging, design, tone across your marketing activities?

If you answered 'yes' to any of the above, then our unique Brand Discovery & Mapping Programme can help.  Using coaching facilitation techniques we will explore your business ingredients to uncover WHAT you do and WHY you are in business.  From this we can help define a core brand proposition that resonates with potential customers and map out your business offer in a compelling way that makes logical sense to them.  

Focusing on the customer, we will also review all elements of your brand to ensure they project an appealing image and to inform all future marketing activities.  These include brand and product messaging, personality, design and tone of voice.  Our optional Brand Audit service will review your existing marketing work to recommend any changes needed to ensure you have the foundations for building a strong brand for the long term

FORMAT: team workshop or 1-2-1 brainstorm, plus consolidation report with core messages and brand "map"

 

Use the output from this across all areas of your marketing, including:  

  • website structure and key messages
  • brand identity (logo, fonts, colours, imagery)
  • social media strategy
  • blogging strategy
  • advertising
  • all printed material

If you are a young business, you may also be interested in our Branding Starter Packages.  Where we convert these brand messages into your logo, banner, branded stationary, website, or social media presence.  We will look after the process from start to finish, so that you can get on with building your business

MARKETING PLAN

  • Don’t know where to start with your marketing activities?
  • Already marketing but not getting the results you need?
  • Need help defining a structured plan to meet your marketing objectives? 

If you answered 'yes' to any of the above, then our Marketing Planning Programme can help.  We will look at your business as a whole and help you find your recipe for success by setting your key marketing objectives, so that you clearly have the end in mind when planning any activity.  Together we will look at your target customer and find the best ways to reach them with a 12-18 month marketing plan prioritised according to both your objectives and also the resource you have available to implement it.

We also offer optional follow-on mentoring to help develop each area of your plan in detail

FORMAT: team workshop or 1-2-1 brainstorm, plus consolidation report and marketing planner

 

SOCIAL MEDIA PLAN

  • Identified which social media to use, but don't know how to use it? 

We will work with you to create a social media plan to identify themes and activities to post and share that support your brand proposition.  Making sure you reach your audience effectively, whilst building a consistent reputation. If you are just starting out with Social Media, you may also be interested in our Starter Social Media branding package

 

BLOG PLAN

  • Planning to blog, but don't know what to write about or where? 

Whether you plan to own your own blog or want to guest blog, we will work with you to create a blog plan, identifying themes based on important messages that support your brand proposition, whilst providing your target customers with useful and interesting stories.

We can also offer optional blog writing

 

BUSINESS PLAN

  • Know what you want to do with the business, but have no time to pull together your plan?
  • Want to raise capital but don't know how to sell your great idea? 

If you answered 'yes' to either of the above, then our Business Planning Programme can help.  Having a well structured business plan is needed if trying to raise capital, but even if you are not looking for investment, it is still an important tool for any business to get its thinking straight and setting direction so that resources are focused in the right places. Many business owners, however, struggle to find the time to step back from the detail and see their business as a whole to do their planning

This is where we can help. We will look at what you are trying to achieve, the insights and commercials behind your ideas with a logically structured impactful plan
