Introduction to Q4 2016/17
New Quarter, New Focus
Welcome to the last quarter of this financial year! This year is quickly progressing since welcoming in the New Year for 2017. I hope business wise you have just finished Q3 strongly and ready for a great Q4 performance before the end of FY16/17.
Alchemise Consulting is gearing up for further progress with our business this year and excited to announce that we are expanding our capabilities to incorporate a holistic business growth approach, encompassing a strategic focus on people, process, and systems for sales and marketing solutions.
We recognize the importance of digital marketing and having a strategy to be more successful in effective lead generation, new business development and a more personalized content appeal to specific audiences.
This year we plan to release quarterly newsletters with updates on our latest business news, so feel free to follow our company pages via LinkedIn and subscribe to our newsletter.
Sales and Marketing Projects
We have been busy delivering consulting projects for new clients during the past 12 months to deliver lead generation, sales channel enablement, and marketing campaigns. We’ve worked within the ICT, engineering services, and financial services sectors, both in Australia and throughout the APAC region.
We acknowledge that the marketing of professional and niche services can be challenging without the real field and industry domain expertise required to assist with a go-to-market engagement.
Niche areas to market such as ICT Cyber Security, Professional services, Finance and Investment sectors need a strategic experience and contextual knowledge based approach for effective marketing to Enterprise, Corporate and Government prospective clients.
Let us tailor a custom campaign for you that links your business strategy, sales and marketing financial targets and investments together - click below to register for an initial no-obligation consultation.
HubSpot Inbound Event 2016
The HubSpot Inbound 2016 event in Boston provided validation of the rapidly shifting nature and importance of digital marketing automation. An inbound marketing methodology in every marketing plan is required to respond to the ways buyers make purchasing decisions today, more so than several traditional methods.
It was great to meet and hear the Hubspot founders – Dharmesh Shah and Brian Halligan – speak about the first 10 years and their vision moving forward. If you would like to read more about the Inbound event and my key takeaways from Inbound 2016, check out this blog post...
