You’re awesome at selling. You can sell houses, units, properties, apartments, appliances, insurance – you name it, you can sell it. But what you can’t do very well is juggle, and yet that seems to be all you’re doing these days. Balls are dropping all over the place as you scramble to balance your workload, marketing, home life, family life, and that elusive thing called free time.
You’re sick of being in catch-up mode. You want to get ahead. You want to be in control. You want to generate work while staying on top of the work you already have.
And you’re serious too. You understand that to achieve your desired goals you need to invest and be open to new ideas and technology that you know will further generate sales.
You run a business that you love, but you’re run off your feet. Your turnover is upward of one million dollars, and you want a marketing team that is one in a million.
You don’t want to put a marketing person on the payroll, you want to invest in timely, outsourced marketing projects – that gets results. You also want someone from that marketing team to be an ambassador for your brand, someone who will represent you at conferences, summits and online forums.
You’re willing to invest because you’re open to exciting, profit-increasing strategies.
Not everyone has it, but you do. That magic. That star factor. People are drawn to you. And you know that you can harness your brand to generate a healthy income. There’s one slight problem. You don’t know much about branding and online marketing, and you don’t have the time or inclination to learn from scratch. That’s where Charm marketing comes in. We’re your biggest fan.
Be online or you’ll be out of reach and out of mind
At Charm Marketing we relish the opportunity to work with committed and enthusiastic people and we don’t work with just anyone. In fact, we only work with a select number of clients each year. We do this so that we can offer personalised and result-driven services to a handful of clients, rather than a bunch of generic services to many clients.
No matter what sort of marketing project you need, we can take care of everything. Our marketing projects include: company branding, marketing plans, websites, social media, online advertising and more. We’re the perfect choice for people who know very little about online marketing, but who understand that they need to harness it in order to make more money. Get in touch.
Marketing consulting sessions are run on a monthly basis and are an important connection session, so that Charmaine Thring can get to know who you are and what your business is about. During the session she’ll provide marketing solutions that can be immediately implemented into your business to get results plus she will also follow you up to make sure you have taken action in your business with the motivation and tools that she provides you.
These sessions can take place face-to-face within the Gold Coast, via telephone or via Skype if you’re located elsewhere in Australia. Get in touch.
Our websites are graphically stunning and attractive, but that’s just the beginning. They’re also easy for customers to use, and they’re designed in a way to increase your leads and sales. Our websites are pretty, sure, but they’re so much more. At Charm Marketing we’ll take care of everything relating to your website. We’ll speak your language, and we’ll save you money while reducing all your headaches. Get in touch.
Done properly, online advertising can substantially increase your leads and sales. Online advertising such as Google Adwords, Re targetting, Facebook advertising and email marketing is different to traditional advertising and requires specialist knowledge to ensure that it doesn’t damage your brand. We are the online advertising specialists. Get in touch.
Most businesses incorrectly use social media as a tool to predominantly promote and sell their products and services, when they should be using it as a tool to predominantly connect and engage with their social community. As a result, their social media efforts actually backfire. At Charm Marketing we know exactly how social media works. We’ll set everything up for you, and we’ll show you how to shine online. Get in touch.

This weekend I am in Sydney for the largest digital marketing event in North America and the very first time to be hosted in Australia, The Traffic and Conversion Summit.
Whilst networking this evening I had the opportunity to speak to numerous business owners who would love to outsource online via platforms such as Upwork however they are hesitant to post their first job.
What is holding them back?
One common objective is that they are not sure how to communicate with a freelancer that lives in another country.
A short five to ten minute Skype call with your top 3 potential candidates will quickly establish the freelancers level of English and if they are a good fit for your position. The best part about this is that you can work from anywhere and not have to sit next to a new employee in the office.
By providing your top two to three candidates with a trial task you will be able to establish if they can fulfil your skills requirements.
I like to send my new freelancers an induction checklist that outlines my expectations regarding communication and best work practices. If you establish this at the beginning then you are setting the work boundaries and expectations right from the very start.
If you hired someone full time at your business premises then you would do this as an in person induction, online you simply do it as a Skype induction.
It is also important to hire people you like and can see working as a part of your team, so a general chit chat now and again is great.
Once a freelancer becomes a team member don’t forget about them just because you don’t see them everyday. Saying good morning and good night goes a long way to creating a mutually benefical working relationship.
The emergence of online hiring and our global world has brought about the ability of being able to outsource to workers in other countries. For the enterprising business, there are many advantages to this process. The number one advantage of outsourcing is the financial savings. The ability to hire workers in other countries who simply […]
