When faced today with yet another suggestion for one of our clients to ‘support’ an editorial piece and their loyal specifiers with profile advertising, it got me thinking…who really thinks that this is a good idea?
Does either the Specifier or the Building Product Manufacturer actually know what they are agreeing to here?
Runners and triathletes use the term ‘Tempo training’ or ‘Threshold’ to describe a ‘comfortably hard’ training effort.
Right now, Pauley Creative is at threshold. We’re in the zone. Working ‘comfortably hard’, and we’re loving it.
To take on another new client, whatever the opportunity, would tip the balance.
Construction product manufacturers spend huge amounts of money on marketing and external agencies, but how do you know you’re getting the most out of them?
A few months back we wrote about how to structure a successful marketing team and how to choose the right marketing partner for your construction business, but how do you get the best from that team?
This post is all about helping you to get the very best from your marketing partners.
Great teamwork beats power and strength (That’s me in the middle)
This post is a great excuse to tell you a bit more about me; what I do, stuff I love and where the two came together rather unexpectedly at a recent visit to the Velodrome.
Before I begin this post I really ought to introduce myself.
I’m Suzanne Golder, content lead for Pauley Creative. I’m responsible for driving the delivery of successful content strategy for our clients.
My recent visit to ride at the Velodrome brought two of the things that I love together. Construction and Cycling.
Auditing your digital footprint, mainly your website, is an extremely valuable and necessary project for a business’ success.
Assessing a website in detail from all angles and scenarios, including priority products, services and key target audiences, will ensure that it is fully optimised.
Good marketers talk about telling stories.
When you write content, when you create video, when you design an infographic, tell a story.
So I’m gonna tell you about my MozCon experience.
Zeph, Suarev, Sarah Bird, Lexie and a few others…. there are “actionable” items in here for you! Just bear with me for the first 500 words please.
Nathalie I stole your words for the title, because I think this qualifies…
As work starts to pick up in the construction industry a key marketing question for me is “Are building product manufacturers going to stay focused on what’s important?”
The last few years have taught many of us to be lean, pin-sharp and focused on delivering real value for our businesses and in order to achieve that, you knew had to work backwards…

Forget Predictions, What Will You Do Differently in
Updated Jan 2015
It’s still true that the majority of generic B2B marketing predictions mean very little to the modern construction marketing professional.

My name is Steph and I am the newest recruit to the Pauley Creative team. My role within Pauley creative is Accounts Manager, it is my job to ensure all our customers are happy and to make sure the level of service we provide is the best it can be.

Is your marketing strategy for the year ahead in hand?
Are you ready to hit the ground running?
Are your monitoring tools, marketing measures and tactical approaches (PPC, SEO, CRM, lead generation, content plan, automation etc) agreed for the coming year?
As James Cameron (Film Director – Google him) once said;
Hope is not a strategy. Luck is not a factor. Fear is not an option.
If the last week or three are a barometer for the coming few months, it seems this year more than previous years, is going to the busiest ever for Pauley Creative and it’s clients.
