Strategic Marketing Plans

 Geiger has coordinated the development of B2B marketing plans through his instruction of the B2B Sales and Marketing course at University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee.

Philosophy

  • We believe in developing partnerships to build brand equity and synergies.
  • Each activity should be evaluated to determine effectiveness, and then fine-tuned for future development.
  • When organization strategies change, elements of the marketing mix need to be changed to accurately reflect the appropriate message to your customers. 
  • Evaluations are conducted objectively, and based on meeting set objectives. If the program does not fit, other programs should be created or the existing one revised.
  • We believe in giving value to your business. This means not only providing value, but ensuring that you are getting what you are paying for. We have the ability to work within budget constraints, and provide you an evaluation of what marketing tactics can be worth to you in relationship to short and long term objectives.

 

External Expertise

In today's dynamic environment, successful organizations outsource functions which are not at the core of their business.  Quickly becoming a cost-effective and commonly used tool in organizations, outsourcing is well justified as it generates significant advantages. Here are some advantages that an out of house team has:

  • It allows your staff to focus on their core responsibilities;
  • Expert execution;
  • The professionals have better contacts, prices and ideas than untrained staff;
  • Better quality result;
  • External perspective;
  • The experience to handle obstacles and unplanned breakdowns / mistakes;
  • A team who is responsible to the client
  • Cost-effective
  • Value for money
  • Speed - many times work can be done faster and more efficient
