Our core services explained

Marketing & Brand Strategy

Why

Take it from us, having a marketing and brand strategy to steer your marketing efforts yields far better results. A plan creates consistency, advantage over competitors and ensures energy is in the right places so investment isn’t wasted.

How

Growth Animals’ clients all have one thing in common. You all want to grow your organisation’s bottom line and positive impact. But, because the combination of challenges and opportunities for achieving your business goals are unique to each organisation, we are experienced in quickly getting under the skin of your business, getting to know you, your brand and its stories, your market and competitors, and your ideal customers.

What

With our strategic know-how, and our founded in gut and grounded-in-insights approach, we’ll create a clear and actionable plan that will guide your marketing activities for the foreseeable future, and aid you in meeting both your commercial and impact-driven objectives.

Visual Identity & Graphic Design

Why

Your brand is how the wider world perceives your organisation. And, thoroughly considered and well-defined brand positioning and core proposition, clearly and consistently articulated and visualised, will stand you apart from competitors and best appeal to the audiences you wish to attract.

How

We audit your current brand identity and messaging, study the competitive landscape and work closely with you to understand what is truly purposeful and unique about your brand, in order to position your brand in the mind of your ideal customer in the most impactful manner.

What

Company brand architecture, logo and visual identity, brand asset development, brand narrative, messaging frameworks and brand guidelines all fall within the remit of positioning your brand in the most compelling and consistent way possible to your ideal customers.

Fractional CMO Services

Why

Often owners of ambitious SMEs face a conundrum. The early stage of your growth journey means you aren’t yet in the position to invest in in-house senior-level marketing expertise, but you do know that strategic vision and been-there-done-that marketing experience are required in order for your organisation to expand.

How

Your business likely has a couple of in-house marketers, working hard to deliver marketing activities on a daily basis. But they are full to capacity, and as brilliant hands-on doers, they may not have the seasoned know-how to develop and drive growth strategies. Growth Animals’ co-founders, Chris and Jen, are senior-level marketing strategy experts with years of marketing leadership experience, so act as fractional Chief Marketing Officers for our clients.

What

Affordable, part-time, highly-experienced senior-level marketing expertise and leadership, perfect for ambitious SMEs who want to grow, but aren’t yet in a position to commit to the permanent overhead. We fully project manage the delivery of your plans as an extension of your business, mentoring your in-house marketers, and bringing together the required marketing disciplines according to your needs, from a combination of our own team,our own go-to bolt-on partners, and your existing resource.

Content & Communications Strategy

With so many marketing communication channels and formats to choose from, we review your current communications, assess those of your competitors, and suggest innovative ways to best reach and engage your target audiences. Creating an actionable blueprint for communicating with your audience in the most effective and inspiring way, across all relevant communication channels for your brand.

Digital Marketing

We enable brands to translate and implement their marketing strategies across digital spaces. At Growth Animals, we support you in finding and communicating with the right people online through paid social & search, SEO and technical email marketing. We craft bespoke ethical marketing solutions to meet your unique needs and challenges whilst constantly testing and refining everything to ensure marketing budgets are used in the most effective means possible.
