The 5-step process of building
a new marketing strategy
Establishing a problem
that needs to be solved?
A vital component of a successful marketing strategy is to first establish and then define the challenge which your business is trying to resolve.
The very first step in the consulting process is for us to discuss and understand the core challenges which the company needs to be addressed.
This could include discussions on what approach has been followed in the past, the success rate, the difficulties, and what were the key elements that make it difficult for the organization to achieve the required goals. We generally delve deep into the methods and techniques which the client has been using to achieve their goals.
We obtain detailed information about the business and its products/services with the concerned product managers, brand managers, client-facing teams, sales, marketing, and administration teams, and all other stakeholders who have an understanding of the companies business, customers, competition, and industry.
The information compiled at the research stage may include attitude surveys, cost studies, feasibility studies, market research or surveys, analyses of the competitive structure of the business or the industry in which it operates.
The goal of the Discovery and research stage is to obtain as much information as possible about the product or service, the marketplace, business environment, industry trends, market trends, competitive practices, organizational processes and so on. We also diagnose, define and document the core problem clearly for the benefit of all stakeholders.
How will success be measured and ROI determined?
The outcome of any business effort can be best evaluated when predetermined benchmarks, retrospective data, anticipated goals have been clearly established.
The Organization must create clearly defined KPI’s, goals and benchmarks which they would like to achieve or attain. These KPI’s must be realistic, quantifiable, measurable, and timebound. The success of any consulting approach is measured against the KPI’s which are determined by the organization and will establish the success of the consulting exercise.
The recommended solutions & how to apply them
The best marketing consulting agencies apply the latest trends, new approaches, industry best practices, and case studies to create long-term growth and business strategies for their clients. Additionally, marketing consultants can also be engaged to supervise, the implementation of new marketing strategy and plans and eventually audit the results and performance improvement obtained thereof.
A strategy is essential to the success of any consulting exercise – be it management consulting, marketing consulting, or financial restructuring, or anything else. Based on the agreed KPI’s we will proceed with developing an overall strategy that encompasses the core problem and all its interlinked elements.
We define and create the steps and procedures which will be implemented, the teams and individuals who will be implementing those processes, the methods and approach which will be used, and how the progress or failures will be managed and rectified.
The best management and marketing consulting companies will provide a strategy that will clearly reflect the who, what, how, and when of the problems and the solving mechanism that is being implemented.
A complete marketing plan will also address critical issues that can impact business performance by recommending ways to retain, grow and manage customers, drive sales, improve advertising and marketing, tweak associated financials and budgets, and what to expect in the short and mid-term.
The implementation of the marketing strategy
The marketing plan presented by the consulting team must be sincerely applied and monitored by the concerned teams to ensure optimum results.
It should have protocols that will be followed and steps that will be implemented and recorded. The consultants deliverables would generally include an elaborate and logically explained action plan narrating the steps to be taken, the timelines, follow-up action and implementation process.
Efficient and uncompromising implementation of consulting recommendations are critically important to initiate the changes required and actuate the improvements desired.
For implementation to be successful and effective – the client must consistently learn, apply and monitor the recommended new ways of solving problems to improve organizational performance. The outcome of these efforts will depend greatly on how determined and consistent the application of the recommendations will be.
Learning new lessons and creating a culture of innovation
Companies should encourage their teams to actively engage in adopting new methods, share and apply process improvements and develop a culture of though leadership and consistent application of new ideas and trends.
The success of any consulting effort can be amplified by working to implement the lessons learned and the improvements achieved across other business processes and verticals. It is also important to prevent the gains and improvements from returning to status quo once the consulting exercise has concluded.
Innovation, and improvement of business practices is not a one-time effort but rather an on-going and permanent exercise that must become a part of the organizational culture that is inculcated and encouraged.

Typically for SME's the monthly cost of hiring an outsourced CMO could be as much or less than the cost of hiring a single middle level Marketing Manager. For larger organizations the cost would be relatively higher depending on the scope, scale and complexity of marketing operations but still way lower than hiring a fully populated marketing team. Monthly CMO hiring costs start from AED 6,500 per month for a minimum contract period of 3 months which can be extended indefinitely if required and agreed to by both parties.
