Marketing & Design Manager (MDM)
We bridge the gap for small businesses that find it challenging to market themselves and implement market straegy. Our MDM service allows small business owners to focus on their business operations and opportunities, working alongside an experienced Marketing and Design Manager.
Short answer; cost
The short answer is cost. Realistically, most small businesses can’t afford to hire a full-time marketing and design manager. The average salary for a level-entry marketing assistant can cost a small business anywhere between £18,000 – £25,000 annually and much higher for an experienced marketing manager. That means even hiring a part-time marketing and design assistant may not be feasible for your small business. Simply put, many fast-growing small businesses like yours can’t meet the financial commitment of hiring someone the conventional way. That’s where we come in.
Our MDM service allows small businesses to achieve their marketing and design goals without the lengthy financial commitment of hiring someone part-time or full-time. After you share your marketing and design challenges with us, we offer a wide range of services that are based on your business’ unique needs, which can help identify opportunities and effectively apply marketing strategies to your small business. MDM has an immediate impact on small businesses as we develop an existing marketing strategy or build a new strategic direction, implement marketing plans and manage the entire process.
what’s the benefits?
There are various ways MDM can benefit your small business. Here’s just one example: Small business owners usually wear ‘many hats’ and one of those hats is marketing, which means marketing can be overlooked, rushed, delayed or pushed back. Most small business owners like you are like an MDM already, but unable to dedicate the time to implement marketing strategy as you’re operating the business to keep it running. Typically, you took the leap to start your own business for financial security and better freedom, right? However, the more hats a business owner wears… the less freedom they have. So, whether your intention is to add an MDM to your small business for the short or long-term, it will give you a better work-life balance.
