Finding a marketing provider is easy for most businesses, the hard part is in finding your ‘Best Fit’ options from across increasingly dynamic and diverse solutions and consumer landscape.
At Marketing Search we start from the premise that most business owners and marketers want to partner with the providers that are best equipped to exceed their needs and execute cost-effectively.
The fragmented media landscape today demands businesses require expertise in multiple channels. This adds to complexity and challenges in ensuring consistency in brand communications.
Dealing with multiple expert providers can be hard, however, whilst the full service integrated model approach, in theory, makes good sense the reality in practice is that it is only as good as an agency’s ability to provide the scale, breadth of resources required to provide above-average performance outcomes. It also requires considerable capital investment to build and maintain.
At Marketing Search our supplier model is premised on making sure, we not only provide individual channel and discipline expertise but when warranted can also deliver an integrated solutions approach that does not compromise on the depth of specialism, consistency in communications and process efficiencies needed.
We facilitate this through a curated and collective network of best in class marketing specialists from across multiple disciplines whom we manage through our platform engage individually and collectively as and when required to achieve the best fit solution for our clients.
Through investing time and energy into the search process upfront and applying a rigorous and detailed approach to qualifying best fit options businesses can avoid the delays, cost blowouts and poor performance outcomes that are typically associated with poor search and selection practices.
Relying on referrals from well-intended peers or friends or sticking with the same old agency you’ve always dealt with has limitations and potential risks. Search engines likewise are limiting and provide little to no comfort regarding the quality or compatibility of the agencies listed.
Firstly we request you submit an introductory high level project brief online which upon receipt is followed up with a call from one of our concierge search experts to further understand and validate your marketing search needs.
Following initial briefing with you we then provide a quotation if necessary of the search fee applicable and once accepted proceed to set a selection criteria for a preliminary long-list of six potential ‘Best Fit’ providers.
The ‘Best Fit’ selection process we apply encompasses us undertaking a rigorous evaluation of each potential provider and rating them against our own proprietary 20 point check selection criteria.
Following confidential distribution of the initial project brief to our long list providers we then follow through and discuss with their respective account project managers their preliminary response and levels of interest with the objective of further qualifying down to a shortlist of 3 providers, who are then requested to submit their preliminary proposal and costings.
The shortlisted proposals are then forwarded to the requesting client contact and further to discussion with ourselves a determination is made by the client as to any further steps they wish to take before final selection and appointment for provider to proceed.
Before settling on any final selection we always recommend a personal visit to at least two of the shortlisted provider offices , to enable you to test and further validate in person their cultural and communication fit with your business team.
