What We Do

Marketing Strategy

Are you searching high and low for customers? Is your offering hitting the mark with customers? What is your Marketing Strategy? What are your aspirations for sales? How are you going to generate the number of enquiries you need to meet your sales targets? With a Marketing Strategy that covers all areas, this is key to meeting your business needs and ensure profitability.

A tailored Marketing Strategy for your business will give it the boost it needs. Modern times dictate that your Marketing Strategy needs to encompass more than just traditional advertising. Knowledge, driven by understanding customers, is the key to effective Marketing. Will potential customers react to what you have to offer and hit the mark that makes them tick? Understanding your current and potential customer base will eliminate wasting money on ineffective advertising and pay higher dividends.

There are so many routes to market. Some you will know about, some you will not and some you can do with a little help. So to get your Marketing Strategy right and contact us info@stephenupton.com

Sales Strategy

Does your Sales Strategy measure up? When you have a lead, a simple and structured process can help you get that sale. The right focussed process will lead to new customers and existing retaining customers. The lead that comes in today which is handled correctly may not be converted today. However, the lead is precious and with the right process, even if you don't make the sale this time you will still have the opportunity in the future with the right management of leads. Generating a lead can be a costly process so to maximise the return on the investment in generating leads you cannot afford to have a weak process.

The most successful businesses operate a process to ensure every lead and every opportunity is taken. Every business needs a strategy and a process and our experts are on hand to develop a tailored approach to maximise the links between marketing, sales and customer retention.

Relationships are everything. Managing these relationships effectively over a long period will produce sales.
Irrespective of the goods or service you offer, keeping in touch with your customers on a timely basis with the right message pays dividends in abundance. That person who you thought would never buy from you will call and buy, even a couple of years after you first made contact. You will see people on a daily basis and you need their details to sell to them repeatedly.

Don't leave it to chance that you will see and have contact with them again.

Your message needs to hit the right note. Therefore, your goods and services need to be promoted to the type of prospects who are likely to respond. Effectively finding the right people to respond to your message will mean that any advertising spend will go a lot further and produce better results. Even if a sale does not result right there and then, this spend handled correctly can produce a sale at a later.

Effective targeting will ensure that your marketing efforts are not wasted. By working towards identifying the people who are most likely to purchase your products or services, this will ensure success as it becomes a much more focussed activity.

Link your targeting with your sales and marketing strategy. The right message to the right people at the right time and place will maximise the performance of your business and assist in ensuring sales growth.
Failure to target correctly will have a serious negative impact on your business so to ensure you get your targeting right e-mail info@stephenupton.com today.


Perception is everything. The minor details make a huge difference on how current and prospective customers perceive your business. Getting to the right person at the right place is essential without diluting the message before they have even digested it.
How many times have you received the same piece of information from the same company on the same day? How often do you get phone calls from the same business in a short time span? There is a simple reason for this. The database is not up to date and some simple housekeeping routines have not been undertaken. The cost can be phenomenal, adds thousands of pounds to wasted marketing spend and damages a customer’s perception of your business.

These routines are essential no matter how large or small your database is. There is nothing more distressing than contacting relatives of deceased people, yet this is an all too common and avoidable occurrence. Through no fault of your own, you have alienated someone and bad news travels fast!
With increasing regulation, conforming to legislation and the recorded preferences of people is essential. If you are not getting it right then e-mail info@stephenupton.com to fix this without delay.

Karl Jenkins

While most agencies cave in to pressure to use short term tactics for quick-but-short-term results, Red Route Marketing understands the importance of long term, principle-based strategies to build a solid and secure foundation for growth. They’d much rather be honest with clients to get the best results which I truly value.
