As an entrepreneur, technologist and international marketer, I take pride in helping our local and international clients thrive - like when their revenue becomes stagnant, when their sales teams don’t seem productive or when their brand lacks clarity. I’m happy to have the opportunity to work closely with them to turn their business around, grow and help them stay Personable, Relevant and Admirable. At Vermilion Pinstripes, we harness art, maths, science and psychology to empower clients with the right strategies and initiatives to achieve their business vision quickly and within budget.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Does absence make the heart grow fonder?
In business, that's an absolute NO.

Without Modern Marketing, you will be Out of Sight and Out of Mind.

Here are three things that can help small businesses become and stay visible. 

Small businesses face the challenge of being seen. So size matters sometimes, but in Modern Marketing, the cyberworld offers you infinite opportunities to expand and reach out. So there's hope. You are not entirely limited by your size. Let's talk about what small businesses need to be visible often enough in order for clients to sit up and notice them, and then to remember and even desire them. 

Small businesses need to be seen (often) in order to be adequately heard by the number of customers you want for your business. Getting a business up and running and to be visible is hard work.

A single business network meeting, one social post or one little ad alone is far from enough. While we do not suggest you inundate customers with endless posts or newsletters, (remember, familiarity breeds contempt), you do have to be regular and consistent in engaging with them.

How to use videos to find new customers and sell to them

The use of text, images, voice and videos make up Vermilion Pinstripes' Visual Communications offering. The use of videos are not new. They have existed for many many years. The big change in video is how important video has become on every platform and channel, especially your social media.

Why social? Research has shown that most people who watch videos watch it on their social channels.

Last Wednesday, 20 May 2020, I invited Stuart Lyall and our client, Lee from My Blue Tea as speakers in one of our webinars to share "Everything you need to know about creating great brand and product videos and using these videos to find new customers and sell to them".

A Strategy for Businesses to Thrive

The old saying that every cloud has a silver lining has never been truer than in these extraordinary times we’re all currently living through.

For small businesses, this situation is a heaven-sent chance to tread water.

The invisible spectre of COVID-19 stalking the globe has forced widespread isolation of communities and shutdowns of conventional business activities.

But in our Vermilion Pinstripes business sphere – where we always look for that silver lining to take full advantage of it – COVID-19 has also generated genuine by-products of hope and optimism for the future.
