Marketing expertise for SME’s in the West Midlands
We help businesses get better results from their sales and marketing activities.
More customers, more sales and most importantly, more profit.
We do this by adapting the tried and tested tools of “big business marketing” to the small and medium-size business environment.
- We’ve worked in 90 industries and use 60 proven marketing tools, systems and processes.
- Only 20% of SME’s have a marketing plan; every Aardvark client uses their plan. Our clients have control over their marketing: what to do, how to do it, when to do it and they know the Return on investment (ROI) that delivers.
- We keep you ahead of your competitors by investing 10% of our annual turnover in R&D, increasing our knowledge and developing new systems.
- 90% of our work is for retained clients, building marketing campaigns around a long-term success strategy for profitable growth.
- Companies who have benefited from Aardvark’s advice range from start-up ventures to international companies with multi-million pound turnovers. Industries we’ve worked with include construction, healthcare, automotive and aerospace engineering, retail, IT, financial services, print, property and not for profit.
What our clients think of our services
In 2013 we conducted a survey of the opinions of our clients. There were a mixture of ‘old ‘and ‘new’ clients with 41% working in their first year with us or worked on a specific market research project, 33% clients for 1 – 2 years and 26% of respondents were clients for more than 3 years.
The whole team were proud of what our clients said about us; it is as important to us to be recognised not only for our professionalism but for our friendliness and willingness to help you. We pride ourselves on being an integral part of your senior business team and want to contribute towards your success.
