Our value-driven existence

Permission’s values are non-negotiable and we look for clients whose values align with our own.

Indeed our approach to the marketing value exchange is born from one of our own values, perhaps the most important:

RESPECT

We respect each other, our clients, their customers, ourselves and the market in general.  We aim to give respect freely and earn it daily

PASSION

We are driven by desire, not obligation and we give our best every day. Because we know that what you put in, you get out – and some.

OWNERSHIP

What we say we’ll do, we do. And we don’t wait to be told. Responsibility is a gift to be embraced. You won’t hear ‘Not my department’ from us.

AMBITION

We demand better of ourselves. Striving to get better results than you ever achieved, with every fibre of our beings, means resisting compromise.

OPTIMISM

We’re a cheerful bunch and it’s probably due to the contagiousness of optimism. We look to extract the best out of every situation. It tends to work.

We spend a lot of time discussing these values to bring them to life and reinforce them. Makes for a more effective and successful agency, makes work more fun, and great results more likely.

For us, and our clients – the most valuable win-win!

What’s this Permission based marketing stuff?

Have you ever tried to force somebody to buy something? The question doesn’t even make sense, right?

No; any successful transaction requires a value exchange of some sort. And if you don’t want it to be a one-off, both parties need to get something out of it.

This is how commerce works. Nowadays, it’s also how marketing works.

New marketing earns prospects’ permission to inhabit a little bit of brain-space by offering something of equal value – maybe useful information, a special deal or a moment of entertainment.

“in return for some precious mental bandwidth (to read and absorb my message), I offer you xyz which I know you value right now”.

Old marketing tried to force the issue, often by repeatedly yelling. Trouble is, people hate that and simply reject the message. No response, no sale.

We call this approach Permission-based marketing. It’s based on understanding and respecting the customer and we’ve proven its effectiveness to ‘Attract, Convert and Retain’.
