When Microsoft Gold Partner, Dynamics Consultants, approached us in December 2017, the business software experts were looking for a partner with a strategic vision, who could create a unified brand and help them showcase their expertise.
Understanding the Root Problem
Like most tech companies, Dynamic Consultants operated within a very competitive and constantly changing industry.
The software specialists had grown very quickly and sought a strong marketing approach to create a scalable, proactive and successful pathway to achieve the next level of its business growth and goals.
Due to the fast-paced, ever-evolving industry and rapidly growing business, the company’s mission, ethos and vision were held at the top. Dynamics Consultants needed to replicate this clear branding throughout its expanding company to attract more targeted customers and talented employees.
“Natasha has helped Dynamics Consultants on a journey of rapid growth. By helping us to build our messaging and marketing strategy, Lion Spirit Media has helped our business to grow, both in terms of turnover as well as with our staff count. Through a greater understanding of customer experience, as well as working with media outlets, we have been extremely impressed by the broad range of skills that Natasha has brought to the table. We would recommend Lion Spirit Media to anyone who is looking at improving their marketing strategy as part of their business growth.” – Jesse Lawrence, Marketing Manager, Dynamics Consultants
Laying the Groundwork with a two-day Workshop
We kicked things off by hosting a two-day workshop, where we dove beneath the surface to uncover Dynamics Consultants’ most significant pain points, internal ways of working and market trends.
We also identified ways to support Dynamic Consultant’s massive growth and make sure employees, customers and prospects understood its amazing vision.
As part of our workshop, we took a comprehensive and holistic approach to exploring the business and its surrounding context. We also established essential foundations like current brand understanding, buyer personas, and verticalisation requirements.
Identifying Strategic Goals
We then set about identifying marketing goals that would serve as our roadmap throughout the project. Our goals included:
- Increasing digital marketing to support their rapid and ongoing growth
- Sourcing high-quality leads on big-ticket projects to allow Dynamic Consultants to showcase its skills
- Establishing clear branding that’s shared by employees at all levels
- Developing a creative approach to recruiting the industry’s best talent
1. Content Marketing and Growth Marketing Strategy
Based on the insights from the two-day workshop, we formulated a detailed content marketing strategy, covering content marketing including thought-leadership articles, PR, event planning, recruitment and SEO.
2. Thought-Leadership Content Calendar
Our 12-month thought-leadership content calendar was built up of website copywriting and content articles, supported by social media content on LinkedIn and Facebook, and quarterly newsletters. We played an instrumental role in delving into the opportunities for Dynamic Consultants through the value of thought-leadership articles and how this content would help them build relationships with customers through engaging and conversion-focused communication.
“Natasha has helped us change from a reactive business trying to do lots of individual bits of marketing to being a proactive business. Now our marketing is centred around distinct campaigns, with strong messaging and yielding real results – qualified sales leads. I have been impressed by her ability to work both professionally and in a relaxed style that makes you feel comfortable with the work that you are doing.” – Jesse Lawrence, Marketing Manager, Dynamics Consultants
3. Event Planning
We leveraged events, including accountancy-specific Accountex, to make sure Dynamic Consultants benefited from its attendance and to capture all opportunities available. We supported the brand with organising these events and then created content to help Dynamic Consultants add its voice to the conversation.
4. Recruitment Marketing Strategy
As part of our strategic planning and execution, we created a recruitment marketing strategy. The recruitment strategy involved establishing a presence on LinkedIn, understanding and rewriting job descriptions, along with exploring the organisational structure and exceptional individual contributions that make up the brand.
We also laid the groundwork for an apprenticeship scheme so that Dynamics Consultants could attract early career professionals.
Our work helped the business software experts expand beyond a limited candidate pool to secure an increasing number of exceptional employees, broaden their reach, and adopt a more sophisticated, streamlined approach to recruitment.
Supporting Growth with an Epic Marketing Strategy and Campaigns
Our work with Dynamic Consultants helped the business software experts increase their staff from 20 to 38, and achieve a 35% growth in turnover within one year.
We’re very happy with the final results. But, don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what Dynamics Consultants had to say:
