Where Will TMG be? – October 2017

For anyone who doesn’t know, The Marketing Geeks are HUGE believers in face to face networking, so we get out and about and try to meet as many people as possible during the working week.

Lots of the events are free or cost the same as a cup of coffee or tea, and the connections you can make can be invaluable!

So, if you would like to come along to any and either meet us there or arrange a one-2-one before or after the events we’d love to meet you!

Below are the events we will be attending this October (and their links to the tickets if you need to book!)

East End Connections

Having recently bumped into Fiona who runs East End Connections and having never attended before, it’s about time we ventured through to sunny Glasgow to see what all the fuss is about!

On all other days we are free for a chinwag over a cup of tea so feel free to get in touch at contactus@themarketinggeeks.co.uk and we can arrange a suitable time

An unconventional intro to motorsport

Picture the scene…

You’ve never been on a racetrack before and a contact of yours puts you in touch with a manager at Knockhill who invites you come find out more….

The day arrives and it’s snowing. Not just a little bit either, but a FULL-ON BLIZZARD!

But that’s OK, because you’re sitting in a cosy hospitality suite listening to all the things that go on and it even sounds exciting!

So, when the invitation to go out on the track is offered, you snap it with both hands.

You whizz around the track at a crazy speed, which somehow, doesn’t adequately scare you, so you ask appropriate questions like “what’s the fatality rate?” and “is there many accidents?”

And then find out that the reason you were on the track is because they needed skilled drivers to make the call on whether it’s safe to let the drivers go out and test their vehicles.

It was not. Not safe at all.

So, everyone was sent home.

Well, that was my first experience of racing.

And it was pretty Epic!

I’m going to be honest and say that I did NOT see myself becoming a fan of the racing, being on track is fun and gets the heart racing but the thought of spending a whole day watching cars go round in circles didn’t strike me as fun.

I was wrong.

This year I was lucky enough to get to work with a team and some of their drivers; some who were racing for the first year, some who had a few seasons under their belt and some who were changing vehicles for a new challenge.

It’s incredible to watch.

Everyone on a team knows exactly what they need to do. The skills level of the mechanics is awe inspiring, you see drivers on an emotional roller-coaster throughout the day, you have numpties like me who just try and make themselves useful and comprehend all the work that’s going on to make this an entertaining day for the spectators. (most of whom are buzzing around the cars)

The 2017 season will be closing in October, they don’t race over the winter, which means now they are preparing for the 2018 start.

There will be new drivers looking for sponsors, established drivers looking to progress to the next level, new challenges and new opportunities, so if you would like to know more about the opportunities and benefits of sponsoring Motorsport get in touch contactus@themarketinggeeks.co.uk and we’ll be happy to tailor a package that could help your business thrive!

What we can help you with??

Ok, so when people ask what The Marketing Geeks do, the answer is always…

“We help small businesses build their marketing strategy”

But what does that mean?

(It’s OK to be unsure, there are literally hundreds of ways of marketing)

Most people think it’s just about social media, But that’s only one of the tools in the tool kit.

So yes, we can help you build your social media.

and some other services we can provide are:

  • SEO (search engine optimisation) techniques. Paid and Free methods
  • Branding; Graphic design, Website, Logo & Imaging services
  • Brand Development
  • Niche Development
  • Customer Communication
  • Content Development
  • Off-line Marketing
  • Event Consultancy, Co-ordination and Management
  • Seasonal Campaign Implementation
  • Business to Business (B2B) & Business to Customer (B2C) relationship building
  • Promotional Marketing Campaigns
  • Socially Responsible Marketing

And many more!

(totally aware how cheesy the “and many more” bit is…..lets roll with it!)

Most of our work is developing an understanding of your customer, which techniques are the most relevant to them (and to you) and finding ways to implement these in to your business week!

And et voila!

We have a…(drum roll Please)…..Marketing Strategy!

So if you have been stuck with any of the above, lets have a chat and see how we could help your business!
