The Marketing Opportunity in Challenging Times

Business has been shut-down and world economies thrown into chaos. There is no doubt we are in uncertain times and there is no playbook for what to expect ahead. This is a new world for every company and business owner. But there is good news...

The economy is reopening!  Is your business ready?

Marketing strategies built for business as usual won't work in an economy restarting after a sudden stop. 

At The Five Echelon Group, we help small businesses adapt their marketing plans to take advantage of new marketplace realities...and opportunities!

To successfully restart your business, old strategic plans need to be reworked and priorities redefined. Marketing plans need to be crafted to take advantage of new opportunities and budget realities.

Finding customers, generating leads, and producing revenue is more important than ever but also more challenging.

The stakes have never been higher, but we are here to help your business restart and thrive!

Rework Plans

Step 1: Plans built for marketing in a booming economy are no longer valid. But companies will need marketing support to attract new business as the economy recovers. The first step is to build out a focused plan of attack.

Utilize the Downtime

Step 2: While the economy starts to recover, all sectors won't be affected at once. Businesses can use the downtime to their advantage to prepare for the coming opportunity by building out and optimizing content and messaging. 

Focus on the Restart

Step 3: As the economy starts to recover, businesses will need to be nimble, see opportunities, and take advantage of changes in buying behavior. It's a potentially new competitive landscape. Being ready and knowing how and when to spend will be critical.

Analyze & Adjust

Step 4: Given this uncharted territory, measuring, monitoring, and adjusting will be more important than ever. What worked before might not work in this new environment. The key will be identifying trends and quickly making any needed adjustments.

Strategic Marketing Consulting Services

The Five Echelon Group offers a variety of strategic marketing consulting services to help small businesses take their marketing to the next level and help their businesses grow.

Project Consulting

Do you have a specific business challenge or strategic initiative but don't have the in-house resources or skills? We can help!

Our team can work with you to map out the initiative, what resources are needed and then provide specific recommendations on how to get the tasks done. We can project manage the activities to ensure the initiative is completed on-time and on-budget.

Often times, it's easy to see what needs to be done but difficult to know where to start. We can help by finding the right resources and managing the project from conception to completion.

Marketing Mentoring

You have a team but they just don't have the skills needed to build a strategy and execute effective marketing programs. If you're not looking to hire an executive leader, Marketing Mentoring may be the answer.

We work with you team to guide and train them in the fundamentals of marketing strategy and equip them with the knowledge needed to successfully execute marketing programs. 

A program is also available for managers who are looking to push their skills to the next level and prepare themselves to be marketing leaders.

If you're interested in the Marketing Mentoring coaching program, please contact us for further information.

Virtual CMO

Managing strategic marketing campaigns, tools, and resources can be challenging. Sometimes it's not feasible to hire a full-time executive to oversee these business activities. Yet marketing is critical to growing your business.

That's why we've created our "Virtual CMO" (Chief Marketing Officer) framework. This service is designed to offer the skills of an experienced marketing executive to your business, on-demand.

We will work with you to create a strategy, put campaigns in place, recommend tools and vendors, and then monitor the progress of the marketing plan to see what adjustments are needed.

It's like having a seasoned executive on staff without the cost associated with a full-time resource.

Mastermind Group

Our facilitated Five Echelon Mastermind group offers a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your business skills.

The size of the group is limited and only business owners and executives are invited to join. Members challenge each other to set strong goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.
