Viv Griffiths, marketing consultant from Start a Storm Wrexham, is now offering marketing training to new and small businesses.
After success in developing well known brands for over 20 years, Viv has now brought his brand experience to a local context and wants to develop this further with hands on training. A while back he wrote a number of articles for the website, the most recent with advice on how companies can engage with their customers.
Viv recently talked to us at wrexham.com about his passion for helping small businesses:-
“I’ve been lucky to have worked on very large brands, gaining a huge amount of experience along the way. I get a huge kick out of passing that expertise onto new and young businesses, helping them to grow in what are difficult times.”
“There are a lot of people offering courses on Twitter etc. but the courses which I run are more in-depth than most. They are designed to help business owners really understand what is vital in brand delivery. I show them how the correct brand leverage leads to consumer loyalty which in turn leads to more sales, but more importantly return sales.”
“The courses that I offer are not the usual off the shelf packages that most companies offer. I tailor-make them for each new client.”
“I run courses that deliver 25 years of award-winning experience in bite-size, easy to understand chunks; taking the client’s hand through the marketing process, enabling them to achieve greater sales.”
“Each course runs for half a day because I understand how valuable time is when you are trying to run a business.”
“These courses really get to the bottom of a brand. They show brand owners how to evaluate their brands and how to increase brand followers which will in turn lead to sales.”
