The Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) has funding available to manufacturing companies who are ambitious to grow and improve their profitability.
Marketing training and advice
is eligible for this funding
(N.B. MAS has quite a broad definition of ‘manufacturing’ which is – ‘The overarching process of getting raw materials made into goods and their associated services.’, so don’t be put off if you think you’re not a traditional manufacturing operation).
Could you benefit? Well, see if you can relate to the following statement:
“Our products are as good, in fact better than our competition’s,
but they always seem to outsell us or win the major contracts.”
If you’re frustrated at the lack of progress when it comes to growing your sales, and you’re ready to take some positive action, then please read on…
How To Realise The True Potential
Of Your Business
The exciting news is that with some professional marketing advice aimed at teaching you how to implement specific proven marketing strategies, those elusive major contracts and valuable repeat orders could easily be whipped from the hands of your competitors and won over to your business.
This funding offers you the opportunity to access the critical training and strategies you need, and receive one-to-one help and advice from Richard Lomax, with the government coughing up half of the cost.
The beauty and benefit of this bespoke help and advice is that the methods and knowledge you gain from Richard working with you in your business will carry on benefiting you for many years to come.
Here’s just a couple of companies who have realised their true potential by understanding some key marketing strategies, and have changed the way they present themselves to their potential customers.
James Walker, Director of SSTAR Ltd:
“Encouraged by the advice provided by Richard Lomax during my 60 minutes consultation we submitted a tender to provide training for a Care Home organisation with 400 staff requiring training of some 60 new staff every year and 340 staff requiring CPD training over three years on a rolling basis.
We have tendered for similar contracts in the past but have never reached the short list. With Richard’s advice and researching your library we were able to put together a tender document emphasising all the benefits and ‘what’s in it for them’ together with Value for Money and ROI.
We have been short listed and invited to give a presentation to the care home directors”
Pilip Isaacs, Owner of PJ Leafleting:
“There is no doubt about it your advice has enabled us to double our turn-over in just over a year; we are just wiping the floor with the competition!
The help we have received has dramatically changed our mind set regarding what we can achieve and we now market ourselves much more effectively and professionally. Having access to great ideas that have worked for others has been a great resource.
I’m looking forward to putting into action more of the marketing strategies over the next few months to see what we can achieve by this time next year!”
If you feel that your company’s potential is being hindered by a lack of marketing knowledge or know-how, or you just need someone to fine tune what you’re already doing, the MAS funding can help you make it happen.
