Our Services

Dreams, ambitions, a vision – everyone leading a business has them, but more often than not, especially for SMEs, plans for the future get left behind in the day-to-day running of the operation.  There simply isn’t time to step back and focus on how to get to the next level.

That’s where the collective expertise at BTS can help, in a sleeves-rolled-up, practical way, whether it’s finding new sources of funding; crafting a workable marketing plan that will really get results, or discovering untapped areas of the market.

By working with you to articulate a clear strategy, that vague vision of where your business could go becomes an intelligent action plan informed by experience and insight.

Here’s how we do it:

  • Strategy & Business Planning
  • Marketing Plans
  • Digital Marketing
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Funding & Bid Proposals
  • Raising Finance

We are first and foremost practitioners at BTS.  Individually we are economists, marketers and business strategists – collectively we deliver plans that work.

We might challenge your assumptions and explore new ways of doing things, clearing a path towards innovation and growth.  All our actions will lead towards a goal that we will make sure is achievable.

We’ll work with you and your team to define your vision and nail down your priorities, creating a comprehensive strategy which is practical and deliverable, focusing on short, medium and long term objectives with an action plan that is date and task specific.  We don’t hold with wishy washy, broad stroke recommendations. We hold you, and ourselves, accountable.

We develop comprehensive marketing plans based on detailed, robust research and your brand’s current position.  Our plans will provide a clear strategy identifying key customers, target markets and the most effective channels to drive sales in the short, medium and longer term.

Now more than ever, having a strong digital presence is vital to the success of any business. As marketing and tourism specialists, BTS can provide a valuable review of your digital marketing presence and act as your own in-house marketing team. Using our own digital platform Espresso Mail, we can plan and execute targeted digital campaigns to get your brand and product noticed and deliver tangible results.

Stakeholder buy-in and commitment is vital for business growth.  We can facilitate ways of communicating with stakeholders to align ambitions, generate ideas, address challenges and get everyone on the same page.

At BTS we have plenty of experience in delving into stakeholder mindsets to generate constructive feedback, tease out views and ideas and reinforce or challenge brand values. Workshops, interviews, surveys and other methods can all be put into play to get the most out of the stakeholder relationship.

Knowing where to locate funding opportunities and creating a winning bid both require specialist knowledge and experience.  The BTS team has helped a wide range of organisations from diverse sectors develop successful bids for funding and tender submissions.

With our ears constantly to the ground, particularly in our specialist areas, we can seek out and identify potential grants and tender prospects then produce a compelling proposal on your behalf.

Raising sufficient working capital to support business growth is a critical part of the business equation.  Our services include preparing and presenting the necessary financial information required by lenders and helping access grant support for eligible organisations.
