For small businesses, we can operate as their outsourced marketing department, or as Marketing Director. A monthly retainer means our clients get the experience of Talent Lab but at a fraction of the cost of employing someone without our experience.

This relationship usually follows on from a marketing audit, strategy and plan developed by Talent Lab. We can then work on the implementation of the elements agreed on a retained basis over a given period of time to deliver the marketing plan.

Some elements are urgent, some are important, some take time to develop. We can manage all your requirements, including brochure design and production, website design and development, advert creation including Google Ads, social media community development including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and blogging, event management, copywriting and a host of other tasks.

Once this phase is completed, you can choose to engage our services on a retained basis where we act as our marketing department (or Marketing Director if you have an in-house team), handing agreed levels of commitment on a monthly basis. Tasks include: Twitter and LinkedIn management; newsletters including creation, writing and despatch; updating and feeding traffic to websites; handling prospect enquiries and letter writing, including website submissions; event creation and management; and feeding back to boards with marketing reports as and when required.

If your business is too small to have its own marketing director or marketing department, but knows it can't afford to leave its marketing to chance, please contact Talent Lab.
