What does Marketing EQ mean?

Financial responsibility is at the core of everything we do. Marketing is a numbers game, and we look at the numbers first. This means evaluating every factor that will influence the outcome.

Like Market Equilibrium, where supply is in equal proportion to demand, Marketing Equilibrium (EQ) is the reduction of inefficiencies and application of best practices for maximum yield. These actions reduce costs and result in higher, long-term performance. The investment you make into marketing must deliver sustainable results, and we can advise on the best course of action, and explain why.

We will help you achieve your goals with the most cost-efficient marketing budget.

What you can expect

We will always give you what you want, but our aim is give you something that works.

Sometimes the results may be surprising, and even unimaginable. That is why we do what we do. We don’t expect you to be experts in our crafts, nor would you expect us to know your business as well as you do. Together, we will achieve top results.

  • Expect consistent communication from our team. We never go radio silent or leave you wondering what is happening with your project.
  • We do our best to provide quick responses to urgent problems. And we work diligently to plan effectively to keep all client projects on track.
  • Your interest is at the forefront of everything we do.
  • We will help you with asset management or acquisition, if your company assets are in many hands. This can cause big delays and be expensive if assets have to be recreated.
  • You will always receive our best recommendations for improvement. We are flexible too, and adjust efforts as needed based on resources and time.
  • If gaps in written or visual assets are present at the start of your project, we will provide options for amendment. Gaps affect customer acquisition and result in customer loss.
  • Research and discovery are important for us to gain a 360-degree view of your business. We see with your eyes, and we help you see with ours. Our insights together strengthen all efforts.
  • Through consultation, our clients report seeing their business, marketing or advertising in a new light. Our practices illuminate a clear path forward.
