  • Direct Mail, Databases and Offline Marketing – That Works!Insight running nearly 30 yearsBeen with business just about 12 yearsConsult with and support national and international firms, small and family businesses, networks and associations
  • If you don’t have a goal, a strategy for your business and the right financial direction – you will end up with something pretty which will flounder...
  • Monitor over 10,000 calls per month100’s of qualified appointments per annumWhat that means:Over 1,200,000 phones calls to UK business decision makers1,000’s of qualified appointments£millions of new income generated for businesses large and smallReal experience of what works, directly from our own experience and from the hundreds of businesses that contact us each year.
  • What we/you used to do is no longer enough on its own – letters, networking, telemarketing, referrals etcSignificant split in the roomThe 3 C’s = More Creative, more Consistent and more CollaborativeKey components to make this work, just as the most successful businesses are
  • How many people in the room are using tmk, how many is it not working for........?Whether you love it or hate it, what can’t be disputed is that for almost all businesses – the human conversation is essential still in order to win new sales and generate appointments – and that in his example the maths have changed a lot over the last 10 years....What is also important to note is t hat while the volume of results have decreased, the ROI businesses owners are enjoying, hasn’t. In some cases for our clients, it has actually increased!
  • Why wrong foundations will undermine all your other hard work, good work, time and money investedThe simple but almost always overlooked elements that will help you get it rightThe “1000 record mind block’
  • BCMS quote on selling a company with a future here x4 normal value etc....Sell the future not just the present and the past.....!

We love the status quo and will go to greatFPOOP lengths to defend and protect it – even when there’s a solid argument to show that change would provide a better solution.0.1% Take your accountants, for example. You’ve been with them for years. They turn up once a year, shuffle your invoices and petty cash vouchers, make a few squiggles with a green pen (It has to be green, because it was red last year!) and eventually, they send you a report saying last year’s accounts are OK. Usually, it’s accompanied by a bill that bears little relationship to the amount of work you think they’ve done. But think about changing? Nah!
