Our Strategy for Success
We invest our time and energy into your company. Our return on that investment is your success and your testimonials. We don’t go for the quick fix because we know that sound strategy takes time to bear sustainable results. We tackle the tough challenges, remove obstacles, put systems in place, get results, train the in-house staff to maintain and grow the results, document the system, and then move on. We are always just a phone call or email away in case we are needed. Given a choice, we’d would rather make money FOR you than FROM you

Put People First
The quickest marketing test any business can give itself is to ask the question “who will be using my product?” If you can’t answer that question without a committee, you should hang onto your day job. Rather than trying to sell a product that you must create a market for, why not take a harder look at the needs and wants of existing markets. It’s the old “find a need and fill it” approach.

Treat Marketing Like an Investment
Running an organization and keeping the funds flowing can be a hand full, even when you know what you are doing. If you don’t know what you are doing, you can be in for a long, hard, expensive ride. The next time you run across somebody who tells you that it’s easy, run the other way. It’s like any other investment: the more you invest, the more you stand to gain or lose. It’s an area where there is little margin for error. It is particularly precarious for the small businesses that don’t have the luxury of rebounding from a substantial financial loss. That’s why we operate from a principle of “risk minimization”.

Advertise with Bold Assurance
You must take some risk to be successful; however, your risk should be calculated. The main reason most companies don’t advertise is because they are unsure they will receive a return on their investment. Can you blame them? There is no option “to advertise or not.” There is only one option, and that is “to advertise wisely.” Once you are certain that the risk is minimal and that your advertising efforts will bear fruit, you are much more likely to take a bold and aggressive advertising approach. You can only get that assurance through effective marketing.

Understand and Embrace Technology
Our Customer-based philosophy integrates your web site into your total business mix. That means your web site is more affordable, and effective because your web technology is geared towards the needs of your visitors. This approach leaves you with money to spend on other business development necessities.

Take Your Organization Seriously
If you are serious about your customers, members, workers, suppliers and/or other stakeholders in your organization, contact us, and tell them about Gatewood. They’ll thank you for it.
