Like many companies, Spearhead had a strong sales ethos. Sustained growth, however, required a shift towards more customer-centric positioning within their market. The company recognised it needed to align sales and marketing functions for the company to achieve its growth ambitions.
Within the leadership team at Spearhead, we re-visited business objectives so we could shift from tactical marketing activities to a strategy-led approach. The strategy directed an important transition from sales-driven to customer-focused positioning. This prompted new branding that rolled out through web, collateral, and packaging design. The re-brand provided an opportunity to improve Spearhead’s digital presence supported by SEO and content marketing, and establish new ways of integrating digital and traditional sales techniques.
Spearhead saw the immediate impact of our work together, with a 9.7% year-on-year increase in turnover and 16.4% increase in online sales. Together with Blood Creative, the new packaging was recognised as ‘Highly Commended’ in Scottish Design Awards 2018.
