    “Doug’s guidance led directly to increased sales and greater customer interest in our products and services. It’s amazing that after such a short time of evaluation, we were able to see the results so soon after implementation.

    I highly recommend Doug and F5 to any company that has a desire to increase their sales and revenue via any type of marketing. He will definitely be our ‘on call’ marketing manager from this point on.”

A software company’s sales were declining. It wasn’t just a revised website or tagline that turned things around. We take a comprehensive approach. In this case, small adjustments to pricing, service offering, product strategy, sales strategy, positioning and promotion led to $1.8 million in sales growth. It often doesn’t take an overhaul, but rather just tweaks, to get sales moving in the right direction.

A baked goods company wanted to build incremental sales growth through the introduction of new products. Our approach was to start by identifying an unmet consumer need; the US Hispanic population was growing rapidly and the segment was underserved in Grocery, Mass and Club retail channels. We developed an authentic product line representing each of the three largest groups (Mexican, Puerto Rican and Cuban). Sales exceeded $17 million in the first year because retailers were excited about the opportunity to attract a growing segment of consumers, drive sales in the entire store (not just in the bakery) and differentiate from competition. The product line was heralded as the most innovative product launch of the year by the IDDBA (the leading baked goods association) and prominently showcased in their annual trade show.

A high quality oilfield equipment fabrication company was suffering from declining sales due to low cost/low quality competitors. Revising the brand message to focus on the exorbitant cost of equipment failure (man hours, down time and loss of productivity) that can result from using low quality suppliers helped to convincingly communicate that it pays to invest in quality. More focused and efficient promotional tools helped get that message to the decision makers at a lower cost. The downward sales trend turned upwards.
