This includes available analysing research and data, evaluating fit of mainstream and ethnic audiences, size of market in New Zealand, cross border or export and ensuring all available channels from digital to social and offline are considered.
The types of marketing strategies we focus on include:
- Market entry strategies – for businesses wanting to export, exploring the possibilities of entering a new territory
- Growth acceleration strategies– for businesses that have the ambition to grow and needs guidance on how to make this happen
