Our Marketing consultancy services are often a starting point for new clients. Forming a Marketing strategy allows a business to concentrate its resources on the best opportunities to increase sales.

It’s an extremely useful process to go through, as it helps business owners structure their thoughts on where they want their business to be, and highlights the best approach to get there.

Most business owners we meet have all the information they need in their heads. All they need is a little help extracting the knowledge and organising it into a plan of action that will make a significant difference to the results they’re getting.

That’s where we help! We love asking questions, to make sure we understand your business, and your market place.  We love thinking creatively about different approaches to take you closer to your goals.  We love putting it all together into an easy-to-action plan to make sure you start getting results from week one.

Would you value external support that…

  • offers a fresh perspective and new approach?
  • helps you define your vision and goals for your business?
  • shows you how to create an easy-to-action plan to get the results you want?
  • holds you accountable to keep the promises you’ve made to yourself?

Tap into our experience and expertise for a marketing strategy perfectly tailored for you.

And don’t worry, we don’t believe in expensive marketing solutions, often the most effective marketing is free or very low cost.  It just takes commitment to do it regularly and consistently to make sure you get the results you are after.

If you don’t have the time to devote to marketing your business regularly, you may be interested in our Marketing Support services.

What Clients Say

Amanda has been a pleasure to work with and has established a new fresh perspective to our marketing approach following our recent re-branding. She has introduced us to the powers of social media and has given us some great ideas on how to get started. She is very passionate about her work and has shown great commitment in order for our marketing to succeed.  Her friendly and approachable nature means that she has been a pleasure to work with and no problem is too big or too small. I highly recommend Amanda to help any business in need of some direction with their marketing strategy.
Kelly Fulford Green, Bibbys Accountants & Business Advisors
Working with Amanda really helped us take stock of our marketing strategy and material to make it work best for us. Through working closely with us (but not intrusively so) and by conducting her own research she is quickly able to provide sound, relevant advice and material. We’re now implementing many of her recommendations and seeing the benefits. As well as her skills and expertise, her personable and flexible style worked really well for us – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Tom Evans, Falanx Assuria, Sept 2015
Whilst I have attended numerous social media workshops I found Amanda’s particularly informative and a helpful recap. I came away inspired and with a clear plan for how to more effectively manage my social media efforts. I was most impressed by how up-to-date the presentation was with examples taken from current media and how relevant the ‘Tips & Tricks’ were for the audience aka small business owners with limited time.
Samantha Short, Kingsbridge & Salcombe Chamber of Commerce, April 2015
Amanda is great support for a small business owner running their business on their own. She is an excellent sounding board, providing strategic ideas and advice to help move the business forward. She’s also very good at suggesting cost effective marketing tactics to achieve business objectives. I found it particularly useful to be able to use Amanda’s copy writing skills to help with some business needs I had, including refreshing website copy and developing email campaigns. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking to increase their business potential – she acts as my Strategic Marketing Department and is a total godsend!
Liz Allan, Allergy Aware Kitchen
Amanda joined our small team of organisers for the Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival this year and made such a difference to the success of the event. Communication with the public is key with any event and Amanda immediately stepped in and took responsibility for the press liaison, social media output and creative communication of our event to our target market. She has great ideas which are presented in a professional and considered way, and understood immediately the need to appeal to all members of our community. We had greater numbers than any previous year and I was particularly impressed with her imaginative ideas in relation to interactive social media communication, in addition to her calm and intelligent approach. She is an extremely easy person to work alongside and we hope she will continue to be a much valued member of our small organisational team, building on the success of this year’s festival and helping to develop and improve our community event in future years.
Tasha Green, Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival
Amanda helped me to articulate my marketing strategy and provided some excellent advice, guidance and input on a number of different areas including target audience, use of social media and communications. Amanda is adept at moving from big picture thinking to more detailed practical advice. She is extremely knowledgeable and her warm and engaging approach make you feel incredibly supported.
Sarah Leach, Owner at Stride Coaching & Consultancy
We asked Vivid Results to prepare our marketing strategy to help us define what we do differently to our competition, and how to best communicate this to prospects and clients to grow our business. Amanda’s thorough pre-strategy consultation really helped clarify our objectives and overall direction. This was followed by the delivery of a comprehensive marketing strategy strongly tailored to our requirements, and supplemented with a list of five ready-made marketing campaigns for us to use. We’re in the middle of rolling out the first one and are very pleased with the results so far. I would not hesitate in recommending Vivid Results to any small businesses looking to improve their marketing effectiveness.
Nicholas Pincombe, Director at Urban Edge Environmental Consulting Ltd
I was incredibly impressed at how efficient Amanda was and how she was able to interpret the ideas I had in my head. Her approach was very friendly and instantly made me feel at ease that it was a delight to work with her. Her experience and passion for what she does is evident in every call, meeting and email. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Amanda at Vivid Results again or indeed recommend her.
Tamalia Reeves-Pyke, Flatlizard Creative
Amanda is an excellent all-round marketer and a very solid, efficient and positive individual who has extremely high professional standards. She was extremely effective defining marketing strategy to help grow the membership of The Sales Club from the challenging and critical early days post start-up. She was also very comfortable implementing marketing strategy across multi-channels, including direct marketing, email, content creation, and event management. She has a very strong work ethic, high levels of determination and complete integrity. I would have no hesitation in recommending Amanda to help any ambitious business with their marketing activities.
