Are you ready to kick-start retail?

Retail is facing a challenging time

According to the BRC, the UK lockdown has cost non-essential retailers £1.8bn per week and, with our economy forecast to contract by 8% in 2020, it’s clear that retail is facing a challenging time.

So, it’s never been more important to ensure that your brand is fit for purpose, both in terms of the story you tell and the way you tell it.

With 25 years of retail marketing experience, we’re here to help, giving our clients the tools they need to strengthen their brand and their business both now and in the future.

How we can help

Packaged solutions

In order to help navigate these uncertain times, we have packaged up two solutions - Brand & Marketing: Performance Review and Brand & Marketing: Optimisation. These will allow us to work with you, deep diving into your business, evaluating how things are done and measuring their effectiveness, then recommending and implementing changes as required.

Solution one

Brand & Marketing: Performance Review

Our team will review and evaluate your marketing investment looking at brand and communication strategies, creative, marketing activities, spend and ROI, and team structure.

Where things aren’t working as well as they should, we’ll provide recommendations for the next steps to help you improve these areas.

Our brand & marketing performance review gives our clients a clear understanding of the opportunities for more effective marketing investment to drive the business forward and increase its viability providing:

  • Clarity around what is and isn’t working
  • Confidence to make the changes required
  • Support from expert consultants

Building on the learnings from the marketing health check, this solution sees BWP's team of independent experts work together with you to revise and strengthen your brand proposition and to develop a three-year marketing plan designed to help secure the business during the difficult times ahead.

This service significantly de-risks and increases return from a brands’ marketing investment by stress-testing and strengthening strategy and evaluating and improving marketing spend and performance.

Our brand & marketing optimisation programme gives our clients:

  • A clearer picture of brand perception
  • Increased ROI and value for money
  • Strategy that supports the business plan
  • A fit for purpose brand strategy
  • An insight-driven marketing plan
  • Alignment and collaboration
