Stay One Step Ahead Of The Competition and Use Best Practices


Business to Business Marketing is now a much more proactive and  competitive field. Here are some tips to stay ahead of the business marketing competition.


  1. Recognise that business has changed forever as a result of the recession. Keep up with the times.

  2. Don’t make key management decisions alone. Seek external help where possible.

  3. Be aware of disjointed online strategies. Use an integrated blog for your website. Consider a company app if you have  resources.

  4. Make sure your website is mobile enabled. 61% of viewers move away if they don’t see what they are looking for straight away

  5. Not using a Blog to manage your online presence. This can be used to save time, automatically update content and positive communication wins business. A blog post easier to share than a web page and it helps increase SEO and visitor numbers.

  6. Not making use of online services. Use online technology for value added services (e.g. virtual access for customers and real time information).

  7. Not acknowledging that your clients are under threat from competitors now more than ever. Stay close to clients and add value that they wont get elsewhere.

  8. Not protecting your most valuable asset – your customer. Rule number 1. Always be thinking of your customer!

  9. Aimless use of social media is commonplace amongst business. Use LinkedIn as a referral tool and act with purpose.

  10. Traditional Offline Marketing is not dead.  Contact everyone that engages with the business (LinkedIn, E-Books, Enquiries).

  11. Submitting Poor Proposal Letters to clients. Don’t make the proposal too much about costs (only mention once). Don’t talk about yourself. Make it about the needs of the client. The reason to write a proposal is to offer solutions to the clients problems. Always meet a client to run through a proposal. Incorporate the clients own words into a proposal and give them back what they raised during the appointment

  12. Use best practice on proposal writing
    • Be on the clients wavelength
    • Create interest in the content

    • Explain the benefits

    • State conviction in what you are proposing

    • State a desire to do business with the company

    • Action – Make sure you keep the initiative. Never “look forward to hearing from you”.

Yes Avid Partners have two divisions of the company. We have an accountancy division that handles your day to day financial necessities and we also have an advisory division to assist companies develop their businesses. This can include consultancy, marketing and guidance when required. We can act as a Chairperson for your organisation if required and can also take away some of the day to day pressures that can restrict growth and slow development. Avid Partners can help with both of the critical aspects of a company, keeping costs down as much as possible and growing revenues exponentially. Technology companies need patience in developing their visions and an involved day to day partner is the best way of keeping a good business balance.
It is a common problem for companies who are in a situation where their business is growing in real terms (users, visitors) but sales is not matching the other growth metrics as traditionally sales lags behind growth (Twitter, Linked In, etc). So what do you do? Every business needs access to finance to pay operating costs which gives the company time to develop future revenue streams. Thankfully the situation is getting better with many tech friendly finance options coming on stream such as micro financing, crowd funding and government agencies are also starting to show support interests.
Every company starts out small with very limited resources at the beginning of the project. The key is to make the most from the resources you have and to seek out alliances, support systems and working partners. Start ups face many challenges including access to capital, regulatory requirements, economies of scale. We can help you develop your concept and will assist in every way possible from accountancy and day to day support to advisory services and raising finance. We can assist in a number of ways and have a portfolio of growing small companies that we help on an on-going basis.
