Many thanks for your excellent Strategic Issue Analysis report…
I wanted to thank you for a very helpful and insightful piece of work.
It provides a lot of food for thought and if I tell you that my reaction to it was emotional as much as anything else you may get a sense of how much it has struck a chord with me.
Please pass on my thanks to your colleagues for a job well done.

Over three decades we have developed and honed our unique Strategic Issue Analysis (SIA) programme.
This half-day event enables us to quickly get to grips with your business. We get under your corporate skin to understand what drives your company, what your strengths and weaknesses are, and where competitive threats are likely to arise.
No stone is left unturned as we examine your brand, its visibility, tone and how it is perceived in the marketplace.
Once we’ve collected and analysed all the information, we create a tailored B2B marketing plan for your business. A plan that will balance your goals, strengths, and budget to maximum effect to drive your business to the next level.
If you want to grow your business, you need to start paying attention to the activities that give you the biggest return.
A small increase in the success of your marketing can have an exponential effect on your turnover. Marketing, therefore, is the lynchpin for business growth.
My favourite definition of marketing is:
“Marketing is the strategy you use to get your prospects to know you, like you and trust you enough to become customers.”
Nothing more, nothing less.
The tricky part, however, is working out what you need to do to achieve this goal.
Just because you’ve launched a new website or introduced a new product or service, don’t fall into the trap of thinking your business will just magically grow.
It doesn’t work that way.
The ‘overnight success’ is often years in the making and there’s a lot of graft that goes on in the background to ensure such successes are achieved.
So you need a plan, a marketing strategy to achieve your goals.
A B2B marketing strategy consists of the tactics you will need to employ to move towards success. These include PR, content marketing, Google Ads, SEO, advertising, corporate identity, social media, etc.
It is the careful planning and implementation of these specific tactics that will make or break your company’s ambitions in the marketplace.
We believe a B2B marketing plan needs to be kept short and simple.
A huge amount of thought needs to go into producing it. The document itself, however, needs to be quick and easy to understand and implement.
If it isn’t, you’re limiting its chances of success from the outset.
Here’s a clear and easy to use template for creating a workable marketing plan:
When you’re dealing with the day-to-day pressures of business it can be hard finding time to think through the process of developing a B2B marketing plan for your business.
Often, you are so close to your business that it is almost impossible for you to have a realistic view of what you have to offer, what the market wants and how to communicate this to your prospects.
At Leapfrog Marketing, we have gained over 30 years’ experience in helping hundreds of clients develop an effective B2B marketing strategy for their business.
We’d love to meet you and discuss how our team can help take the weight off your shoulders and create a powerful B2B marketing strategy for your business.
If that’s something that resonates with you, it would be great to hear from you.
