Strategic Sounding Board

This 2-hour session with a Watertight Marketing Accredited Consultant gives you an experienced and objective marketer to talk through a specific marketing question or challenge you may have.

Have you ever just wanted to sound someone out on an idea or challenge you're having? Maybe you're considering an investment of time, money, or energy on your marketing? Or perhaps, you're struggling to understand why your marketing isn't delivering the growth you'd expected. Or, maybe you've got some new materials you want someone to cast a professional eye over.

Across our network of experts, we've seen under the bonnet over well over 1000 businesses. What's more we bring a trained, experienced, and objective perspective to the marketing challenges faced by organisations like yours every day. Talk to us. We can help.

Peter really knows his stuff and demystifies the marketing process for small businesses. A very worthwhile workshop.

"Cheryl is a bundle of energy. She brings great ideas and creativity, balanced with being able to focus the right activity in the right place for a strategic reason. That’s the trick. There’s many things we could be doing — the skill is knowing which are the right things — that’s been the value she’s added."
Malcolm Miller MD - RTS Group
"Bryony's Watertight Marketing methodology has been invaluable for our company. This isn't your traditional marketing theory. This is a company wide approach that gets to the root of all aspects of a business. Thank you!"
Dougal Hawes, Business Development Director SmartBox Assistive Technology
"We’ve seen a steady improvement in two areas. Firstly, we are getting more enquiries from people we’ve not previously spoken to who have found our content. And, secondly our new marketing activity is also giving our existing clients much more reassurance that they are speaking to the right people."

Ben is fantastic. I absolutely couldn't have done it without him! His marketing knowledge is endless and his enthusiasm and easy manner mean that working with him is a very positive experience. I felt supported throughout the whole process and was never afraid to ask for help. He totally understood our business inside and out which meant we were always on the same page and his thoughts and comments were both inspiring and insightful. I feel very lucky to have had Ben by my side coaching me and guiding me through Masterplan.

"What makes the Watertight Marketing approach stand out from the crowd of fluffy marketeers is direct linkage of effort to return, all marketing activity is carried out because it leads to improved sales, Bryony's no nonsense approach was a revelation and a relief. I can not praise Watertight Marketing highly enough and thoroughly recommend them to anyone who needs an expert marketeer on their side."
Dave James, Managing Director Ascentor
Peter makes marketing simple to understand and straight forward to take an action.

The Watertight Marketing team recently put our small not for profit company through the Thirteen Touchpoint Leaks™. The results were amazing. They were able to see opportunities that we had never seen before and helped us to think differently about the ones we had identified. I can't thank the team enough we are excited about the direction we are heading and we have lots of recommendation to follow to help us get started.

Peter is a refreshing change - most marketing people bang on about posting on Twitter 30 times a day, or how important one's Facebook posts are. This workshop was the first one that actually delved into the reason BEHIND every marketing decision you make, with a goal as to what you're trying to achieve, rather than simply a list of actions.
Matt Hills Travel Counsellors
I really didn't know where to start a year ago. I was one of those people who would put some time aside to 'do' marketing, rather than working it into my day, everyday.Now I understand how it works, how to measure its success, and how to grow and develop my marketing activity.
