We also build in organic lead generation to this category as SEO is key to our owned media approach and focus on a sustainable future for your business. Both paid and organic lead generation is connected with a data analytics service line.

COG Branding prepares your business for both the rough and calm waters that is small business.
You always need new leads
Most small business require a steady stream of new business and customers. In any business over time its customer base will change, either through acquisition or succession, changing suppliers or simply closing.
To be prepared for this natural attrition is to build a easily managed sales funnel, it ensures your working life is less stressful and better planned.
You always need to remain competitive
It is true that only the strong survive. Strength in business is found in a few key areas that COG Branding develops on purpose. Brand strength provides an always-on opportunity that can offset any negative market forces.
Well managed digital marketing assets allow swift action to be activated when market trends change. Staying business fit is easier than starting from scratch every time there is a crisis – business fit is to remain competitive by default.
To maintain brand strength you need to exercise
Marketing Communications doesn’t have to be difficult. Your business won’t survive if it takes a vow of silence, especially when a competitor discovers a market share opportunity that fills the void an inactive business leaves open.
COG Branding will teach your business the difference between brand marketing and product marketing. Your business will need to do both, though by maintaining a strong marketing spine through active branding it’ll keep the business alive, ready to perform a sprint or a marathon at a moments notice.
You can’t control the future, though you can prepare for it
Small business is different for everyone, and no two businesses are the same. Though what is consistent for every business owner is that there is no crystal ball for the future.
That’s why COG Branding prepares our clients businesses to be in a position to be able to take an opportunity if it arises, and to be able to shift it’s marketing focus at a moments notice if there are storm clouds on the horizon.
