What We Do...
A heart of any successful business is a strategy. At TMC we aim to develop that strategy to help you achieve your business goals, as well as demonstrate the benefits of a cohesive marketing plan. Any successful strategy is built upon a clear understanding of your business and its goals which we always strive to achieve
An effective marketing plan will help you differentiate your brand from the competition. At TMC we believe your brand is king and should be one of the most important investments you make in your business. Your brand is your shop window to the outside world and should always reflect your business values.
With over 35 yrs experience in the marketing arena we have accumulated a reliable pool of professional partners we work closely with to deliver your objectives. Our associates range from graphic designers, web developers, social media specialists and producers to printers, exhibition contractors and film producers to name but a few.
Not all clients require a full marketing service but often have the need of an expert to manage a specific task. At TMC we can offer that service whether it be project managing an exhibition and all the complexities that come with it it, or just covering for staff absences.
Given today's uncertain economic climate it is logical that there may be a reluctance to commit money to salaries to increase your in-house marketing function. The Marketing Counsel's (TMC) main aim is to enhance that function without having to make that long term commitment, yet provide your business with the resource and benefits of a strategic marketeer. TMC's principal Mark Shelley has over 30 yrs experience in the marketing and advertising arena and is a full member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing. His extensive experience covers a diverse range of sectors including consumer, b2b, trade and technical, b2c, public sector and manufacturing. The markets worked on in these sectors are equally as diverse ranging from sportswear and equipment, fruit juices and beers to safety barriers and drilling machines. Disciplines employed for these clients have included marketing strategy, research, brand development, direct marketing, e-marketing and strategy implementation to name but a few.
