Fox Survival for 2020!

Fox survival for 2020! How to plan, evaluate and implement for your business at this time.

Today is a new start for many businesses, they have coped, sorted, and now know what their deal is and where they stand.

I talked online to some 2 weeks ago about getting to this point and have been asked to share some of my wisdom, so I have put together a survival kit and will be posting daily on this.

‘How to market yourself amidst such tragedy? Such a fine balance. Please share some of your wisdom’ one connection asked me recently.

I found this quote ‘Out of constraints comes creativity, out of chaos comes growth. Out of fears comes love!’ by Sue-Ann Bubacz

So….let’s begin!

Plan, evaluate and implement! I have known Managing Directors sitting on beaches in mid August doing this, they come back from their annual holidays, phone me and say…come in for a meeting, just bring your brain.

Sit down with a piece of paper and start putting ideas down, think of where you want to be in 2 years, then six months and then 2 months. scribble a mind map, dump everything down, silly or not, keep visualizing where you want to be and work backwards, this is an ongoing process and nothing is wrong.

I have planned a sequence of these actions for the next few weeks, please get in touch if you would like a chat or further help, free consultation and virtual support.

Many thanks and Good Luck!

What sort of marketing do you do? someone asked recently….

I am a designer with a business background and have developed different ways of marketing. I look at the whole company and it’s strategy and bring in specific experts depending on the companies requirements. 

I do some soft social media for a few clients but for a stronger campaign outsource to specialist providers especially if hard core lead generation is needed. 

I enjoy marketing and project managing with several clients on a retainer basis where I become part of their company, team and successful development. This has enabled me to get involved with video, animation and unusual direct marketing and 3D printing.

“Effective & professional ways of communicating to your targeted market across media including sales literature, print, digital and web. 

Planning your strategy and finding exciting ways to engage with your audience, being different and keeping up with digital marketing on social media, incorporating animation and video also. 

Creative concepts and communication – let us take the weight off you and fully project manage your design and marketing activity across many platforms.”

Happy to have a chat to see if we can help. For example we recently quoted for a Marine company in the UK to do all their exhibition stands globally, marketing material and email/social media/website nearer the time.

The beauty of what we offer is that we are not tied into any other company so our clients come first and experience the ‘why not effect’ and we go that extra mile….hope that helps….

One question for you… What are you looking for? what help would you like? and what are you trying to achieve?

 

Networking Event 27th Feb 2020

Fox Networking – Thursday 27th February

We started with snow, then everyone arrived and I, Kate finally did the 10 minute presentation with a display of all 4 animations, first time shown all together. I received a round of applause and then talked about connecting H2H and Know, Like and Trust, following on about things you did not know about me, things you should and the qualities of my clients, how we match up and fit together.

This is a fairly relaxed group where we are able to talk around the room about our businesses and something unusual for the month.

Fox Networking Event

We had a varied selection of people and businesses including a marketing company, Business directory, business support/Zero, financial advisor, Video company and Video Director, Audi cars, websites company, design, branding and stress/loss specialist who can help men and women cope and understand Menopause – Health and Wellbeing in the workplace. 

Next month Will Kintish is treating us to a talk about ‘The Power of the Question”- March 18th @10.30am.

Fox Networking started in May 2019. The main reasoning behind it was that we had a super new studio with lots of creative space, I was not able to network with more than a handful of people due to migraines and noise level, many people in the building did not really know what each other did, and it was a good way to meet our neighbours. I found the original message below!

Now we talk about Columbian Coffee and Cream Cakes, comments like…. relaxed, no pressure, structured yet informal, warm welcome and well looked after are a few of the comments received.

Fox Networking

This event has now taken on a life of its own, we are not in competition with other events, as it is by invitation only, hence we don’t use Eventbrite, we now have a good mix from all different sectors and not always the usual ones found at events. We select by people and this gives a different feel. The first 6 months were free, but now we are charging a small cost to cover some of our costs, these do not even cover my time. 

So why do I do it, well, many reasons, but it does give me total flexibility and am able to select different venues with other like-minded people, I just want to be a little bonkers and I do have 13 years of International Food & Beverage, senior management experience in 4/5* hotels, soooo it must be the veins….and we like decent coffee…it just smells so welcoming.
