How we help our clients
Some successful marketing solutions from our creative team
For a new client we start the successful marketing journey with the ‘discovery ‘. The follow-on stage is developing the overall marketing strategy. How we integrate the various product offerings so there is always one overarching message. Identify the targets for individual service sectors and find the correct tone of voice for each sector. Now we engineer the brand message and identify the optimum communication channels to deliver the client proposition exactly on target and power-up the call to action response to optimise the flow of enquiries. We also look at individual strategies for social media, digital, PR etc.
Your brand is your storefront, it should resonate who you are and what you stand for. It sits precisely into the market space it is designated for. It is the beacon to which you attach your product offering. It is your soundboard for your mission statement and your tone-of-voice. If part of the marketing process is developing or upgrading the branding, the design process should not be subjective but carefully engineered through testing and research.
We are digital veterans, from websites for big brands like Virgin and the BBC’s Top Gear to current client websites such as BWA Yachting, Moravia Yachting through to start-ups. But digital reaches into every corner of our marketing channels, from webmail PR, emagazines to animated banners.
Although seen as the ‘traditional’ strand of communications, paid-for-advertising, both printed media and digital, is one area where the message and timing can be totally controlled. Outbound communication is there to drive traffic to receptors such as social media and website searches. The Owens media team work tirelessly to monitor the paid advertising space, making informed recommendations to our customers, designing cost effective strategies and negotiating favourable rates passed to customers. As a ‘recognised’ media business we make our margins from agency commission, so the media management service is often covered by this.
Press relations and Content Generation
Weaving through the bigger blocks of marketing tools is the flow of content, almost like an information lubricant. It does many important jobs. It maintains the positioning of the company mission statement, reinforces the tone-of-voice, supports the crafted message that needs to be vigilantly enforced to ensure that all communications are ‘on-message’ at all times. All written channels form part of PR, from press releases to supplied editorial, news letters to magazines, official announcements from products to successes, financial statements to damage-limitation. Owens has developed our own databases for news/press delivery and Marine Influencers. We have press databases that cover marine, superyachts/luxury, financial plus categories of editors in key publications and digital delivery systems with analytics. Success in getting your message out is all in a day’s work for our writing team.
The English language is the chosen platform in the global luxury marketplace and well written and correct English is expected in all customer facing materials, something appreciated by all our non-English clients. Can we update your website copy?
