Customer communications & stakeholder engagement

Marketing In Control is a Relationship Marketing Consultancy, which means that we focus on customer communications and stakeholder engagement rather than lead generation.

Customer relationships often take a back seat to acquisition but, in today's connected world, happy customers can help to improve margins and bring in new business. Inside the organisation, we often forget that we have internal customers and colleagues who depend on internal services and support. This may be a non-commercial environment, but the relationships forged with internal customers, team members and stakeholders can improve collaboration, efficiency and performance.

At Marketing In Control, we believe that the same Relationship Marketing principles we use to help you manage external customer relationships are just as applicable, and essential, inside the organisation to help internal teams engage with internal customers and stakeholders. We provide tools, training, coaching and hands-on support for business and team leaders including: customer-facing teams, executives, project, programme & PMO leaders, and change managers.

We are a virtual, collaborative network of independent professionals, experts in particular areas of marketing, social media, design, video and strategy. By choosing to work with us, you have the option to develop internal capabilities, or scale up resources when you need them and scale back when the job is done. Welcome to Marketing In Control!
