The seminar is a no obligation meeting with our sales and marketing director Darren Hickie and will be a fact finding mission for you and your business.
We never take on a client without having first met with them and begun a working relationship. We want to answer all of your questions and understand everything about you, as this then enables us to get to the heart of what you do and why you have such a passion for it.
yes we're talking to you!
If you're a small or medium-sized business you may not have your own marketing team, or if you do, you could become overwhelmed with the amount of effort it takes, to put into PR, emails and social media management.
Many of these things you know you should be doing but you simply don’t have the time or resources to cover, and that’s where we come in. Develop and Promote can assist you with online videos, PPC advertising, social media management, email marketing and all of your website needs including building your site from scratch, if you so require.
We believe having a website and marketing it correctly through a number of mediums is all interlinked and all part of the same overarching business process structure. That’s why, by understanding every element of your business model, we can provide you with a tried and tested solution which fulfils your every need.
Reasons why your ‘why the business path is suitable for you'
You have two types of websites. The first is one created by a graphic designer. Yes it looks pretty, but in terms of its functionality it falls short on its marketing potential and gathers very few leads.

#2 lead generation
Did you know that 99% of visitors who land on your site, leave without contacting you? That's an amazing figure when you think about all of the lost potential. So the biggest challenge facing online business today is not how your website is designed but getting your visitors to STOP and begin a relationship with you.
how we can help?
Firstly, we can build you a site that not only looks pleasing on the eye but also performs well from a marketing perspective to keep visitors on your website.
Secondly, we’ll offer your prospective customers something that they will perceive to be of high-value and we’ll give it to them for free; this is known as a lead-bait. With lead-baits and data capture forms you will be able to store leads on your customer management system and follow-up them up for higher sales conversions.
When creating lead-baits, it is important to consider what you are offering your visitor or potential client. It has to be something of high perceived value that demonstrates your professionalism and expertise but, at the same time, persuasively and subtly convinces the prospect that you are the only company they should consider.
lead-baits which we can create include:
- Colour Brochures
- Written Reports in PDF format for download
- Cheat Sheets
- And Newsletters
The list is endless, and the type of lead-bait you require will depend very much on your market and your service. We will assess this and come up with the best solution for you.
Video is fast becoming a must-have marketing feature on your homepage. It is estimated that visitors will stay on your site for just 7 seconds before leaving if, they don’t find what they need. It's therefore, imperative that you capture their attention quickly and maintain it. Videos are so good at doing this as they don’t require the potential client to read copious amount of text but instead they promote your business in a fun, interactive and succinct way.

One of the major platform which is universal to nearly all businesses however is Facebook.
Why? Because at least 50% of the population spends an average of 20 minutes a day on Facebook. Having a business page set-up, allows you to get your message across to the masses, promote your services and give your company a more personable feel.
Your prospective clients are already on Facebook! And are likely to check out your Facebook presence before they do business with you. So, if you don’t have a Facebook business page, or it doesn’t look right, you will lose new business immediately.
Creating and writing regular posts is a must, but it’s also all about finding the right tone and connecting with your audience. You need to drive engagement and to do that you need good content marketing.
