Don’t be overwhelmed by marketing!

Trout is here to help. With so many options…and let’s face it sales people, trying to get you to buy their advertising media, marketing service, or Yellow Page ad (Ack! Stop that right now!), marketing can feel like an overwhelming process. We simplify. We train. We do it for you. How easy is that?

Consulting Review, plan and execute.

Trout will work with your business to create actionable strategies that create results. Too frequently we see businesses taking the “throw it against the wall and see what sticks” approach to marketing. It doesn’t work. Or maybe it will, but how will you know? Strategic planning gives you a map. You will know where you are coming from, where you are going and how to get there.

We will serve as your outsourced marketing team allowing you to have the backing of over 25 years of marketing experience. You will have marketing strategists, social media specialists, graphic designers, SEO smarties, video geeks, public relations gurus, media buyers and access to our vast amount of contacts. (Hint…it would be really expensive to hire each of those people individually. But, really affordable when you use Trout instead!)

Graphic Design Logo, Website, Sales Materials

“You only have one chance to make a good first impression.” This saying is still true. Probably more true than ever before because our attention spans are short and we are hit with so many images each day. Your logo will be with you a long time and will be the image associated with your brand–something you want to leave to the pros. Our graphic design team is brilliant. Seriously.

  • Logo design
  • Sales Materials-brochures, sales sheets, etc.
  • Business cards
  • Websites
  • Social media sites
  • Signage
  • Anything you can think of!

Marketing Audit & Research Knowledge is power.

Do you really know how well your current marketing is doing? Have you taken the time to find out what works and what doesn’t? Who are your competitors and what are they doing to steal business from you?

We think of audits from a financial perspective–but we often forget about reviewing one of our bigger line items, marketing! We will work with your company, marketing department, or even just you if you are a sole-proprietor, to do a complete 360 degree review of your company.

Once we get all the data, we will make recommendations on how to best move forward and what to leave behind. Even if you have a full marketing team on staff, using an outside firm is incredibly vital.

You can’t read the label from inside the bottle.
