YOUR OUTSOURCED MARKETING TEAM

A complete outsourced marketing function for your business under one all-inclusive annual marketing budget that you decide.

What happens when business owners want growth, know their business has the potential to grow, but can’t afford a full time marketing department and don't want to manage several different external marketing providers?

 

Option 1: The headaches, Leadership Team crisis meetings and stagnant growth continues…


Option 2: They call the Change Starter, who provides a marketing strategy and full calendar of activities, and assembles a bespoke team of expert marketing professionals that implement your entire year of marketing under an agreed annual budget, while you get back to running your business.

Ready To Level Up Your Marketing?

HOW WE WORK

To get started, our clients tell us their annual marketing budget, and place it under our trusted management.

Next, we develop a bespoke marketing strategy tailored to your business, then curate an outsourced team of skilled marketing professionals to efficiently execute marketing activities, all within the agreed annual budget.

We oversee the operation of your marketing team, and provide strategic cohesion to continually optimise results, freeing business owners from the time-consuming distraction of managing multiple external providers.

Time To Take Charge Of Growth?

 

ARE WE A GOOD FIT?

We apply the CARE Factor Fix™ to every client

 

This model of working was developed from primary research conducted by our CEO, years working with and coaching business owners, uncovering what makes a great marketing team, and what makes a great client. We stand by the characteristics of CARE below, and apply this to fix any marketing challenge. We expect clients to come to the partnership with the same value principles. Experience tells us that if a business is not committed, accountable, realistic or engaged in their marketing; neither of us will enjoy the journey to growth, and it’s probably not the right fit.

Commitment

US

We’re on the journey with our clients, in a minimum 12 month commitment to establishing and improving their marketing systems.

YOU

Our clients commit to the annual marketing budget they've allocated.

Realism

US

We are realistic about how much time business owners have, so we make decisions on their behalf to keep the system moving. We love efficiency, and streamline creative tasks where possible.

YOU

Our clients are realistic about the time it takes to get their marketing infrastructure projects and housekeeping underway before we start promoting the business. They also realise that some activities need more time to see results than others.

Accountability

US

We’re accountable for the responsible management of clients’ budgets, quality of output, and marketing results. When we don’t see the results we need, we do something about it.

YOU

Our clients are ultimately accountable for the growth of their business, including sales.

Engagement

US

We are fully engaged in our clients’ businesses, and take the time to onboard and immerse ourselves in the operational and commercial details so we can integrate them into the marketing function.

YOU

Our clients engage with us and their marketing activities, knowing that they are the experts in their field, and knowing that marketing is just one piece of the revenue-driving puzzle. They keep TCS in the loop with important business updates or changes.

Think We Make A Good Match?

 
 

WHY CHOOSE US?

We've spent a long time crafting our offer and our delivery. Just like you have with your own business, we've trialed, errored, and trialed again. Of course, we're always improving, but we think we've got a pretty unique, and compelling offer for those who fear the status quo. As creative as we are, we could probably come up with a million reasons to choose The Change Starter, but we thought we would start with the ones that suit your needs.

Great For Cashflow

We manage your entire annual marketing budget and split it over 12 equal monthly invoices, so you know exactly what you’re spending each month. We manage all supplier payments throughout the year, so while many expenses are paid out in the first 3 months of setup, you still only pay the one monthly invoice instead of being charged for everything up front like most agencies would do.

Experts Work On Your Business

Our team all work full time in their area of expertise, so they are available when needed, but you're not paying for them full time.

Strategically Led

TCS is led by an experienced marketing strategist, who is obsessed with efficiencies and leading multiple external marketing functions, so you don’t have to.

We Get You

We have the proven ability to distil and simplify complex marketing challenges and take them off your plate; no matter how nuanced they are to your specific industry.

You Know The Plan Up Front

Everything flows out of the agreed strategy and calendar, so key people in your business can see what comms are planned out, and we can sync seamlessly with the operational side of the business.

Reduce Your Risk

We take on the risk of extra costs if you don't like the work we present. It’s in our best interest to write accurate briefs, present poignant marketing strategies, and roll out hardworking content so you see positive change as soon as possible.

Efficient Use Of Your Investment

Money is not wasted on account management fees and a large hierarchy of people on the payroll, commonplace in traditional agencies. Your budget is used to implement every part of your marketing activity calendar, so we don’t charge for people waiting to be told what to do next; they read your marketing plan and jump on it when needed.

Your Very Own Marketing Team

We assemble your marketing dream team with the exact skills and people needed to implement the marketing plan.

Full Spectrum Marketing

We assemble outsourced teams who work across a multitude of channels. We're unbiased with the channels we select (unlike a social media agency might be, for example) so you benefit from the full spectrum of marketing without the headache of multiple agencies.

Work With The Best

We have access to a pool of pre-vetted qualified marketing professionals from around the globe who are business owners who understand the commercial realities.

HOW WE START

Commitment

01

Once we've met, and you've decided to work with us, you'll commit to a 1 year agreement. This agreement outlines the relationship between us, and confirms the agreed annual budget.

Strategy

04

Using the research insights, we'll create audience personas for each different type of customer, and use these and our strategic superpowers to identify the best ways to reach, engage and convert your target within your available budget.

Discovery

02

We’ll meet with you to determine your business objectives, the existing research and available information and to agree outcomes. You'll download everything you want us to know about your business and existing marketing.

Channel Plan & Tactics

05

We undertake industry-specific research to determine the most appropriate marketing channels to reach your target audience. This could include publications, influencers, conferences, events and social media. We determine the tactics for each of the chosen channels.

Research

03

We’ll gain a deep understanding of your business, current marketing, target customers and competitors and search for the key purchase drivers to build a picture of the opportunities to leverage.

Calendar

06

Once you've approved the core strategy, we transfer the plan into an actionable calendar that shows the order of activities over a 12 month period. You'll have access to this so you can see exactly what's being promoted when. Then we get all housekeeping and infrastructure projects underway, and start promoting your business!
