Aardvark Marketing | Does your marketing need to shift it's focus?

Does your marketing need to shift its focus?

Does your marketing need to shift its focus?

As we approach the end of another very challenging year, many businesses will be engaged in planning for 2022.  Marketers will be looking forward to 2022, setting new targets, building plans and setting up projects.  Of course, this activity always involves some reviewing of current and recent performance, and what is going on in our marketplace.

After nearly two years of very different circumstances, I think it’s a really good time to look a bit more carefully at what has happened.  Are we all really reverting back to pre-Covid “normality” or has the world changed?

If, like me you conclude that some of the changes to our behaviours and values that have emerged during the pandemic are not simply going to fade away, but have become part of the way we are now, then we need to consider what implications this has for marketing?

It has been said that the 1950s triggered the boom in consumer marketing when supply began to exceed demand for consumer goods.  Faced with surplus goods and services, brand owners needed to convince consumers to buy more and to buy their brand.  The practice of marketing and the investment in marketing activity grew exponentially over the following decades in a bid to convince consumers to buy named brands, or even adopt completely new products and services.

However, in the last 2 years, many of my clients have found significant challenges in other areas.  Supply of materials has been a consistent issue for many businesses; whether due to Brexit complications, shipping costs, availability of HGV drivers, shortage of computer chips, supplier shutdowns due to power rationing, reduced working due to Covid or a myriad of other reasons.

Another growing trend has been the difficulty in recruiting new people and holding on to current staff.  Recruiters are consistently reporting a shortage of candidates and suddenly there are regular references to “The Great Resignation”.  A recent study by MetLife showed that over half of employees are considering leaving their job in the next 18 months

If these changes turn out to be more than a temporary change, then what does this mean for marketing?

If supply and demand are moving back towards an equilibrium, it sends prices upwards which may help profits, but what else changes?  How much should we invest in driving demand that we may then struggle to fulfil? Could it be that we can be more choosy about our customers – who’s business do we really want?  Or do we need to focus more of our marketing efforts on the supply side of business?

Call us on 01905 885 285  or email us  if you’d like to re-assess what really matters with marketing.

Happy Marketing!

The Connection encapsulates the concept of the world as one community and a vision of hope for the future. Its creator, Luke Burton, has invited the University Hospital Trust Charity to be a partner for the Broadway Plaza installation in Birmingham which is the first across the globe.

The Connection project is focused on building a strong and unified foundation for a harmonious future. It aims to promote a positive and optimistic connotation for the term, ‘wall’ as  each individual brick is integral to the making of a strong and an undaunted wall,.

University Hospitals Birmingham Charity (UHB Charity) is proud to be the official charity for four local hospitals namely the Queen Elizabeth Hospitals Birmingham Charity, Heartlands Hospital, Good Hope Hospital and Solihull Hospital. We exist to support patients, their families and staff across our four hospitals sites by providing those added extras which cannot be funded by the NHS. This includes state of the art equipment not normally found in NHS hospitals, additional facilities, cutting edge research and patient comforts which make a big difference to a patients’ stay in hospital.

“We are incredibly grateful to modern sculptor Luke Burton and his team for choosing UHB Charity as a local charity beneficiary for the eagerly anticipated installation and unveiling of ‘The Connection’” says Fundraiser and Communications Manager Laura Power. “I think I can speak for everyone when I say we have so missed events like this over the past 18 months during the pandemic and we are thrilled that the installation will enable UHB Charity to continue to support our NHS Superheroes and our patients and families during this time.”

The first installation will be at Broadway Plaza in Birmingham. To take part, visit www.theconnectionworldwide.com.

Luke Burton, the artist behind The Connection project, has a vision that the project will connect people of all ages and backgrounds, starting here in Birmingham and spreading out across the globe. The project is all about hope and supporting local charities with their vital community work.

The Salvation Army is perhaps best known for its work supporting people who are experiencing homelessness, poverty, and those suffering with addictions. Much of that work is done through their residential services, known as Lifehouses, providing over 3,000 places a night.

Lifehouses are much more than just a place to stay. They are places of safety and support for the homeless, in the heart of their local community. People can access support with housing issues, employment, debt problems, training, spirituality, loneliness, addiction, or mental health. Many of the programs involve volunteers who provide a whole variety of activities, for example cooking, art or gardening classes. Residents build the confidence and skills to look forward to a much more positive future.

“We are very excited to be involved with The Connection says Ross Newton, the Community and Events Fundraiser at The Salvation Army. “It is vital that we maximise our resources to help people who have nowhere else to turn to, donations made to this project really will help those in need.”

The first piece of the largest work of art, The Connection Worldwide, is to be placed at Broadway Plaza in Birmingham. The official unveiling of the mini installation will be on Thursday, 14th October. Originally planned for launch in 2020 the project has been delayed because of Covid restrictions. Dreams and Wishes first announced their official partnership with The Connection when they were presented with an engraved stainless steel brick at the House of Commons by Sir Lindsay Hoyle and sculpture Luke Burton in January last year.

Dreams and Wishes founder Tony Curtis MBE confirmed “we are so happy to be involved in this project with Luke Burton. The Connection Worldwide will be an amazing piece of art. The public support for The Connection will help us make the lifelong dreams and wishes of more seriously ill children and their families across the UK come true.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This wonderful charity exists to provide support and build lasting memories for children and their families when they are at their most vulnerable. Often life-threatening illnesses involve many hospital stays and painful treatments which can mean a loss of their ‘childhood’, something the rest of us take for granted.  Dreams and Wishes are a dedicated and experienced team of ‘fairy godmothers’, making wishes come to life and putting #SmilesOnFaces. They fulfil these childrens’ unique dreams, which could be meeting a favourite TV star, a visit to a theme park, a flight in a helicopter or just having their own playhouse in the garden. If you know a seriously ill child who deserves their dream to come true, or you want to find out more about their work please visit their website www.dreamsandwishescharity.org

Each brick in the Connection sculpture represents an individual, a struggle, an achievement, a connection made to others. It seems appropriate to celebrate this human resilience and support for each other through the hard times we are currently experiencing. Luke Burton, the creator of The Connection says “it is a pleasure to be involved with this terrific charity, who really understand some of the hardest challenges faced by children and their families. We want to bring a message of hope to more people through this partnership with Dreams and Wishes”.

The aim of the Connection project is to spread the message of hope that everyone, wherever they live and whatever their race, gender or nationality are part of one human race. The Connection pieces will continue to be placed in every country, connecting the world together through art.  Individuals will be able to be part of this historic artwork by purchasing unique stainless steel bricks engraved with their name and chosen message. Companies will also be invited to sponsor a brick, personalised with their company name and logo. Once the bricks are all personalised, the final, larger installation will go in its place.

Each year about 600 children are born in the UK who have a complex heart defect and Charlie Ramsey was one of these children. Before advanced surgery was an option, these children were simply given palliative care at home because there was no treatment. Happily, with funding for more research some of these children can now be offered surgery and the charity Charlie Ramsey Research Fund aims to support more research so that no child born with a complex congenital heart defect cannot be cured. The charity offers hope to families affected by this disease, promoting both research and organ donation.

“We at the Charlie Ramsey Research Fund are honoured to be partnered with Luke and The Connection, this inspiring project will help us in our quest to relieve sickness for the thousands of babies, children and adults living with complex heart diseases by funding vital research” says Trustee Sandra Ramsey. “Our charity advocates Organ Donation and the importance of saving lives. The support from Luke’s fundraising will enable us to continue our mission to provide life saving Defibrillators to communities and schools. We wish Luke every success in his quest to connect people through his art. “

Individuals and companies can be a part of the Connection by sponsoring a ‘brick’, personalised with their name, message, or a company logo and donate to the Charlie Ramsey charity at the same time.

Aardvark Marketing Consultants | How to avoid the biggest household energy rises for a decade

How to avoid the biggest household energy rises for a decade

How to avoid the biggest household energy rises for a decade

Household energy bills set for biggest rise for a decade

Most of the big energy suppliers are increasing their prices this autumn, as the regulator, Ofgem is allowing the energy price cap to be lifted by as much as 13% from October. The 11 million households on default tariffs will now pay around £1,288 a year with a similar price hike for the 4 million households on prepayment meters. This increase will affect about half the UK households. It is being driven by large price increases in the wholesale prices for energy, which are at their highest level for more than a decade. The regulator, Ofgem said the price cap for default energy deals would be raised to allow suppliers to cover these extra costs.

Aardvark Marketing Consultants | Gas hob

 

 

 

 

 

Ofgem chief executive Jonathan Brearley says “The reason the price cap is going up is there has been a record increase in energy prices across the board, not just in gas and electricity but in petrol and diesel.” However, he is encouraging customers to switch supplier to avoid the tariff increases. “You don’t have to live with this tariff. The price cap is a backstop.” The Government are also encouraging people to review their energy bills. A spokesman for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said: “While the price cap still saves 15 million households up to £100 a year, the best way for consumers to keep energy bills down is to shop around for the cheapest tariffs on the market.”

Smaller suppliers are at risk of going out of business

The energy industry is bracing for a new wave of small supplier failures amid warnings that many cannot survive soaring wholesale gas and electricity prices. Keith Anderson, chief executive of Scottish Power, one of Britain’s biggest suppliers, said: “A massive train crash is about to happen because their models are unsustainable. Prices have gone through the roof and they can’t cope.” When a supplier fails, the rest of the industry is forced to pick up the tab for any unmet payments, as well as for customer credit balances so that households are not out of pocket.

Aardvark Marketing Consultants | Insurance prices rises 2016 - 2021

How to avoid paying rocketing insurance premiums

How to avoid paying rocketing insurance premiums

What’s happening to insurance premiums?

It’s been an odd few years, to say the least. With politics, adverse weather and of course the Covid pandemic, very little seems stable at the moment.Aardvark Marketing Consultants | Insurance prices rises 2016 - 2021

 

 

 

To add to all of the other stressors in our lives and businesses, prices of many fundamental goods and services have been going up. Insurance is no exception. In fact in the last quarter alone, overall insurance premiums have increased on average by 35% in the UK and 18% globally.

This increase varies across different classes of insurance. Liability covers saw a 7% increase last quarter. Property went up 18% and financial lines (professional indemnity and directors and officers liability) rose by an average of 71%.

Aardvark Marketing Consultants | Professional indemnity price increases 2016 - 2021

 

 

 

 

Why are premiums rising?

The last four years have seen a perfect storm of legislative changes and national events that have severely affected the insurance market:

  • Ogden rate changes which came into affect in 2019 have significantly increased compensation pay-outs on liability claims
  • The Solvency II Directive has forced insurance companies to change the way they operate and has pushed underwriting costs up
  • The significant flooding in January/February 2020 has pushed up property premiums
  • The Covid-19 pandemic has lead to an additional £1.2 billion in business interruption claims, increasing cyber crime and fraudulent and exaggerated personal injury claims.
  • Investment income loss caused by the combined effect of Covid19 and the challenges around Brexit. This means that insurance pools are expected to be more profitable than in the past.

Aardvark Marketing Consultants | Ogden

 

 

 

 

 

What can you do to reduce your premiums?

Despite the challenges, some businesses are seeing increases below the average or are even saving money! The following is what we are advising our clients:

  • Start your renewal process early – the more time you give to your broker, the more likely they are to get you favourable terms. One of the other effects of the pandemic is insurer service levels are down meaning that quotes are taking several times longer to obtain than they did two years ago.
  • Volunteer lots of information – there seems to be a myth that you should only give insurers the minimum information that they request, but the opposite has always been true. The better an insurance underwriter understands your business and the risks it faces, the more comfortable they become and therefore the more open they will be to provide lower premiums and better terms. If an underwriter feels that they don’t understand what they are insuring, or feel you are holding information back, they will refuse to quote (limiting your options) or they will quote a higher premium.
  • Turn the negatives into positives – it may be that you have had past financial challenges like past business insolvencies, personal bankruptcies or CCJs, or you may have has past claims. Given the current environment that is becoming more likely. Rather than just giving the basic information about these events, explain the causes, any mistakes that were made and what you are doing differently now. A business that has faced challenges but come out stronger is a better prospect to an underwriter than one that might repeat the past.
  • Ask your broker how you can reduce risks – insurance underwriters like businesses that take risk seriously. It might be as simple as changing your health and safety or security practices, or adopting new contracts, but any examples you can provide that you are reducing risk could lead to cheaper premiums.
  • Use a Broker – there are over 250 underwriters offering insurance to business and only a small handful are available online. A good broker will know which insurers to approach to get you the right deal for your business and circumstances.

Aardvark Marketing win UK Trusted Marketing Advisors award

Aardvark Marketing win UK Trusted Marketing Advisors award

Aardvark Marketing are pleased to announce that they have been recognised for the sixth year running with a Technology Innovator Award as UK Trusted Marketing Advisers. These awards recognise companies that are helping – in whatever way they can – to deliver change through innovation, expertise and creativity.

Katherine Benton took a moment to discuss the success of those recognised in this year’s programme: “Now in its seventh year, the Technology Innovator Awards have only grown to encompass a plethora of businesses to showcase their individual achievements and successes in the technology sphere. Innovation is the true driver of the technological landscape. It’s through the efforts of companies both large and small that the business world can continue to grow, exceed expectations and, ultimately, evolve. It’s also true that the technology sector is a behemoth that never stops moving. If a company wants to excel, they need to be dynamic and adaptive, with one eye always cast to the future. Once again, I’d like to congratulate Aardvark Marketing on their success.”

Established to help companies get quantifiable results from carefully constructed marketing plans, as supposed to fluffy unaccountable marketing activities, Aardvark was founded by Chris Hutchinson in 2005. Having enjoyed success with some of the largest brand names in the country PepsiCo, Sharwoods and Bulmers, Chris wanted to turn his skills into a complete package to help other companies towards success. His wife Gill soon joined him, with her talents honed by Black & Decker and LRC (Marigold and Durex) and third sector organisations including the Red Cross and St Michael’s Hospice.

Chris and Gill enjoy becoming immersed in the commercial activities of their clients, however unusual, which range from IT and high tech manufacturing through to the creative arts. They believe that marketing programs should be designed to suit the needs of the individual company circumstances, so they never take a ‘one size fits all’ solution approach. They take the time to really understand the industry specific challenges and consequently ensure that the companies they work with have the tailored support that they need. This enables a high level of trust to be established between client and the Aardvark Marketing team.

Val Gardner, MD at Winster Hoses says “I started working with Aardvark in 2019. Chris and Gill have made sense of what I wanted to achieve and moved me forward with a sensible marketing strategy that works for me and my budget. A mix of traditional marketing techniques and digital has generated much needed awareness with existing and new customer interest leading to more profit. Their determination to make sure results are delivered on time and as expected is a breath of fresh air and takes away the worry. Although on paper a “third party supplier” Chris and Gill are firmly part of the Winster team and I cannot recommend their services enough and look forward to what else can be achieved.
