Strategic Planning.

You Need To Make The Time To Plan.

Time and time again we heard from business owners that they are too busy to plan. Guess why they are busy because they fail to plan.

In our experience, many leaders don’t have a strategic plan because they are technicians. They know what they do, and they are good at it, but they don’t know how to look into the future.

An imperfect plan today is better than no plan tomorrow.

Why is strategic planning so important?

What makes a GREAT strategy plan?

Strategic planning is made too hard, too much detail and not enough innovation. We help you break it down and ONLY do the things that will make a difference.

Passion For Change

Strategy is about making new decisions and planning for the future. Not business as usual.

Do Less

Focus on the two to three BIG plays that will make a significant difference to your business.

Get Help

Outside insights or the support of your team will help you generate new thinking and opportunities for growth.

Focus On Momentum

By getting early wins on the board you create momentum. By doing too much you get overwhelmed.

Insights: Everybody Is On A Journey.

What started as a simple website project several years ago has become an enduring relationship based on collaboration. They had a great brand and great people, but they knew they had more opportunities to improve. Their key win was being enabled to take a more strategic approach and then knowing what to do about it.

Leveraging customer-centric strategies

If you think great customer service is too much effort check the Google Reviews for Ronhill New Zealand. In 2020 the brand was achieving a small income of $400 per month, well under what it should have been delivering.

Starting with the audience analysis we identified that we needed a low-cost purchase to engage them in this previously relatively unknown brand. With socks being a recurring purchase we knew we would be able to develop a strong lifetime value for those customers and leverage that sale to encourage them to try the running clothing. We focused our energy on brand building through amazing customer service.

The net result was turning a business with $16,000 revenue into $93,000 within 12 months, all because we created a strong customer focus early. For the full case study watch our Sock Strategy Webinar here where we outline the 20 tactics we used to drive growth.
