Hard Hitting Research & Consulting
“By far the biggest leverage point in any business is marketing. If you get 10% better at marketing, this can have an exponential or multiplying effect on your bottom line.”
– Allan Dib, Best-selling author of The 1-Page Marketing Plan
Jump-start your sales
Fortune 500 companies fuel their growth with multi-million dollar advertising. Certainly if you have less than a billion dollars in revenue, you cannot play like that. You may think that effective marketing is out of your reach. It is not.
We have examples of some clients who spend as little as $50K on marketing and have tremendous results. Whatever your potential budget, we know you can grow your sales by improving your marketing.
A precision approach to small business marketing
Let’s start with your success. We’re guessing that you are doing pretty well with your products or services. You are ready to take it to the next level. That’s why you are on this website. You think that you probably can grow your company and you know what? You’re right!
With limited resources, most companies have to be smart about how they spend their time and money.
If you own a small to mid-sized business (or are an agency working with clients) and want a precision approach to your marketing, Advanced Insights & Marketing (AIM) can show you how to do it. We work with you to develop a marketing program that is based on insights and experience that ensures cost effective and successful marketing.
Marketing that makes it happen
At AIM, our only goal is to help clients make more money. More specifically, we employ a variety of tools and techniques to develop a consistent marketing effort that generates more sales for your company.
Our services are custom-tailored to what your company needs, so we don’t waste your time or money. Our research-first mentality means we can show you exactly what you stand to gain from implementing specific strategies.
We engage in a variety of tried and true marketing strategies to answer our clients’ most crucial questions:
Size the market
“How big is the pie and how big of a slice can we take?”
Develop a customer profile
“Who is our target market and where can we find those customers?”
Establish a customer persona
“What resonates with our customers and how should we speak to them?”
Identify communication channels
“Where do my customers ‘hang out’ for information and what is the customer journey to purchase?”
Create an executable marketing plan
“What needs to happen to get us from where we are to where we want to be?”
Validate new products and services
“Will our customers see the value in our new product or service and will they be interested enough to buy?”
Experiment with new marketing concepts
“Are our customers going to react positively to a new marketing message and are they more likely to buy because of it?”
If marketing is so powerful, why doesn’t everybody do it?
