The consultant guaranteed the continuity of marketing activities by maintaining the in-house digital channels. In practical terms, this involved maintaining the website and writing blog posts. In addition, the consultant was responsible for the digital development of online sales of the brand in Belgium.
Lots of different factors need to be considered to achieve sustainable growth. More and more businesses find themselves struggling to strike a balance between profit, product, people and environment. In these situations, an outside perspective can often be a welcome breath of fresh air. Not only can we highlight your sticking points; we can help you solve these problems in a positive and sustainable way.
Digital has been an unignorable aspect of the business world for some time now. Both internal operations and the entire customer experience journey are moving online to an ever-greater degree.
Of course, the actual extent of digitisation still varies from sector to sector and from business to business. Some businesses have gone through a complete digital transformation, while others are just taking their first steps along the way. For these businesses, BrainTower can add real value by putting them in touch with experienced people who already have several successful digital transformation journeys in the bag.
Whether they know it or not, all businesses hold a huge amount of data: financial data, product data, customer data and so on.
Often, it soon becomes difficult to stay on top of this sheer amount of data. That said, good data management can provide a real boost to a business. As part of this, it’s important to take a structured approach, to determine where the real value lies and to make all the right connections to gain smart and practical insights. That’s exactly what BrainTower can help you with.
Takeovers are often a step into the dark. Transform the process into a calculated risk by investing in commercial or vendor due diligence. That way, you can save time and money before you invest. Due diligence doesn’t just help you assess the exact financial impact; it also gives you genuine peace of mind.
If you’re not sure whether your organisation is operating at its maximum potential, it’s best to take a step back to analyse your processes and improve them where you can. Someone from outside your business can do exactly that in an impartial and objective way. Any sticking points will be brought out into the open, and your optimisation journey can begin!
BrainTower specialises in every aspect of SME consultancy, from A to Z and from THINK to DO. We realise that small and medium enterprises need an entirely different approach. They have different concerns, priorities and working methods than multinationals. With the years of experience our specialists have built up in this area, no one is better placed to provide advice and support.

CRM management at retailer
To boost its CRM activities, a retailer created a new role at its Belgian head office. Our consultant took up this role for the first six months, which gave the client the chance to take its time to find the perfect candidate, while also allowing plenty of time for the handover. During this initial period, our consultant set up and managed various projects, facilitating major leaps forward even before the post was permanently filled. After a thorough analysis of the client’s current CRM policy, the frequency of its e-mails was optimised and improved plans were drawn up for its e-mail and direct mail campaigns. Our candidate set up the initial phase of a new CRM lifecycle, which markedly improved the KPIs. The client also started making greater use of A/B testing, resulting in much more effective campaigns. These initiatives ensured the permanent employee hired for the role could hit the ground running.
Brand management in FMCG
This project took place at the market leader within a specific food sector in FMCG. To maintain a market-leading position, it is essential for a business to keep its brand at the forefront of everyone’s mind through activations, promotional campaigns and packaging based on a marketing plan devised at the start of the year. Brand management is a broad discipline that requires a different approach for every target group and sector. The most fun and challenging part of this project was its diversity: our consultant got to work with a range of channels, such as digital, retail (POS, promotional campaigns), sampling, media, outdoors and so on, using different methods to deliver the same message.
Brand activation in FMCG
One of our consultants was posted to a project at a drinks manufacturer undertaking a line extension. Introducing a new brand or flavour always works better when you offer consumers the opportunity to taste it. In other words: a sampling plan had to be part of the marketing plan. The best way to attract new consumers it to allow them to taste the product and show them how to use it. A sampling plan often goes hand in hand with a promotional campaign to encourage consumers to try the product.
Trade marketeer in food service
This project took place at the market leader within a specific product category in FCMG. The manufacturer in question had barely ventured out into the world of digital. Consequently, one of the main objectives was developing and maintaining its digital channels. The client also set up its first ever digital prospecting project. The brand is also very active offline, so our consultant ensured all marketing activities were consistent.
Campaign management in automotive sector
One of our consultants worked for a client in the automotive sector for a period of ten months. The project mainly involved developing campaigns for both new and existing models. As part of this, the consultant helped to develop outdoor materials, social media posts and e-mail campaigns and assisted in the creation of materials for dealers aimed at both existing and potential customers.
