Why Digital Performance Matters
Cheshire means business. According to official figures from the Office of National Statistics, output grew by 6% in Cheshire and Warrington between 2015-2016 to just under 30 billion a year – the highest output per head in any area outside of London and the South East .
The continuing growth of the Cheshire Science Corridor Enterprise Zone coupled with the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership’s plans to create a £50 billion economy for the area by 2040  confirm that Cheshire’s future looks bright even in a post-Brexit era; bright for business, bright for housing and bright for employment.
With so much investment in the area and the added benefit of access and connectivity to large markets via enhanced transport links, how is your Cheshire business preparing for this bright future? How do you and your team plan to capitalise on the growth opportunities present in the region and beyond? Do you feel that you are maximising your opportunity with your current marketing team and agency expenditure?
Below, the qualified marketeers at Think Beyond outline how a business consultant can accelerate the digital growth journey and help you grow more profitably.

How a consultant can help to improve your digital performance
From Alderley Edge to Congleton, Macclesfield to Knutsford and Crewe, Cheshire’s status as a Northern economic powerhouse is undeniable. Cheshire East’s Gross Value Added (economic output) per head is 26.4% above the UK average and further ahead of the North West. The business opportunity is sizeable and your return on investment (ROI) high if your digital plan is well designed.
Continued growth demands that businesses become digitally fit. Many businesses choose to approach or even employ an outside digital agency before they are ready, spending money, time and resource unwisely. By first partnering with a qualified business consultant, business owners, CEOs, sales and marketing directors can ensure they have a clean canvass to work with and the tools to create their masterpiece – designing a cost-effective digital plan and utilising an agency to maximum benefit.
A consultant will work closely with you and your team on all aspects of your digital performance. From auditing your current campaign results to helping you obtain objective data and creating actionable strategies, a consultant will evaluate, plan and move your business forward. Fast.
As outside experts with considerable experience, consultants are uniquely placed to help you make decisions whilst delivering time and efficiency savings. For some companies, the insights and work undertaken by a consultant may mean that an agency is not required and the work can in fact be fulfilled by internal teams or via automated marketing technologies – at lower cost.
The benefits of partnering with a consultant are both economic and strategic but can sometimes be overlooked when the going is good. This thinking fails to realise that a consultant is there to enhance your existing output or design the most appropriate plan from the start. What if a consultant could help plan for threats and opportunities before they arise? What if a consultant could help you supercharge your content creation for lead generation and nurture strategies? Can you be sure that your data is GDPR compliant? Consultants can answer all of these callings and more, always working with you on your digital health and focused on the best ROI.
Partnering with a consultant on your digital strategy should be seen as an advantageous relationship that is focussed on one aim: to take your business further. Spend on the right consultant can have a drastic reduction in agency spend, increased ROI and deliver long-term, sustained visibility for your brand.
