Start up marketing consultant and services

Get your business and marketing plan right first time

We are ambitious for start-up businesses.

Start-ups need an effective strategy, and they need marketing that works.

Having worked directly with start-up business owners, and via business support funding programmes, we have a recognised track record of helping start-ups get to market fast, and succeed in their objectives. This can mean many different things for a business:

  • Continuous organic growth.
  • Growing to the point of being able to create jobs.
  • Successfully gaining investment.
  • Developing sales channels via partnerships e.g. gaining a listing in major retailers or supply arrangements with big manufacturers.
  • Restructuring for faster growth, where appropriate.

We do not believe that start-ups need basic advice. When starting out, these decisions are the biggest you will ever make. Let’s get it right first time.

When might you need this?

A common theme that we experience is that a business is started by an expert in something. The leader knows their product, but not necessarily their market. And there are often more options than are first considered concerning strategy, markets, and ways of doing business.

When you want to give your business the best start in life. We are well-suited to complex start-up environments e.g. spin-outs and R&D commercialisation in which the choices that you make about products and branding can have a substantial impact.

If you’ve developed technology or a product, then our support can get you to market quickly.

What will be the results?

Remove risk from your entire business.

Remove wasted time, effort, and money.

Bring clarity, focus, and value to your activities.

See the whole picture, so that you can plan better.

Start up marketing consultancy services

We can bring consultancy on market-orientation, research into your environment and market, and answers to specific business challenges, all brought together in an effective strategy.

We are experienced in all aspects of starting and growing businesses, from naming to brand development, market development, and partner collaboration.

Once we have a strategy, we can create content that works; whether that’s for your website or any other communications.

You don’t have the time or the money to do this twice.

Talk to STO, get a strategy, and get it right first time.

This will be the best investment you can make in your business.

Give your business the best start in life

You have a business idea … It’s a good one … You are enthusiastic about it…

BUT:

That is not the determining factor in the success or failure of your business

  • How do you ensure your product or service meets existing customer needs?
  • How can you do this better than the competition?
  • How do you communicate it in the right way?
  • Who is your target audience? Why?
  • Who can you partner with that has complementary skills?

These are the questions that STO Consulting helps you to answer.

Once we have the above intelligence, we can work on strategy development and putting this into practice in a highly practical way.
