We had an excellent session with Andrew from Blue Dolphin that was practically a one-to-one meeting. HIs advice for web development was very informative and I was able to take away some very valuable lessons about potential improvements and essential next steps.

"With Blue Dolphin I feel like we are in safe hands. Their ability to manage the website design and build and provide a proactive stance meant that we ended up with a website that exactly meets our needs. Without their guidance we wouldnt yet have a site. Not only have they designed a great site, they have massively helped with the content marketing, which was such an important part of the project. Its refreshing to work closely with a technical company who know their stuff are so responsive and communicate in a jargon free way"

Having used Blue Dolphin for a number of content marketing projects we have found they always exceed expectations with the quality of work and delivery. Recent photographic projects have blown us away. If you need professional marketing without the BS contact Blue Dolphin

Cost, Profit Analysis

Identifying and maximising your most profitable customers / products and services.

  • Which customers are your most profitable?
  • How many customers do you have?
  • How many customers would you like to have?
  • How big is the income of every customer?
  • How much does it cost to serve a customer?
  • Is every customer as profitable as the other?
  • Do you have unprofitable customers?
  • If yes – do you know who they are?
  • If yes – what will you do with them?
  • How profitable are your transactions?

The most common measurement of business success is based purely on sales income in relation to volume – ‘what is our bottom line?’ But ‘bottom line’ figures are often the result of numerous business transactions over a particular time-scale; the resulting data is a simplification of a complex mix of costs.

How Profitable Is Each Customer

How do you find out whether you are really profitable (or not) per customer, product, and/or service?
This kind of information will allow you to identify and focus on more profitable customers/products, whilst also identifying those less profitable areas.

More than a historic approach to sales analysis…
Analysing product and customer profitability…

Cost & Profit Guard (CPG) is an analysis product which calculates the profitability of individual customers, products and services.

You may already be producing lots of accountancy data…but does it allow you to easily make decisions?

CPG uses information from your existing sales income and overheads (operational and manufacturing costs) to provide you with accessible and comparable business information.
You can have up-to-date profit/loss figures for every customer and product in any defined accounting period at your finger tips.

From raw data…to improved decision making

Base future decisions about dealing with customers in a factual, clear and understandable way
Information is presented in an easy to understand and structured way helping you make fully informed business decisions.
You can review the electronic results shortly after the monthly invoices are complete. Results consist of a 12 window matrix where the position of customers/products depends on volume (size) and profitability.
As a live tool this information can be entirely and instantly customised to your particular needs.
The information provided is invaluable:

  • how do your customers buy?
  • what is the impact on selling prices?
  • what are the costs involved?
  • how do the sales, pricing, purchasing, operational and production systems function?

Professional Marketing & Sales Strategy Development

Developing an effective marketing and sales strategy is crucial for the success of any business. It can help a business reach its target audience, build brand awareness, and drive sales. While some businesses may attempt to develop their own strategies in-house, there are several benefits to using a professional to develop your marketing and sales strategy.

1. Expertise:

Professionals have the knowledge and experience necessary to create effective marketing and sales strategies. They have an in-depth understanding of market trends, customer behavior, and effective sales techniques. They can use this knowledge to create a strategy that is tailored to your specific business goals and target audience.

2. Objectivity:

Professionals can offer an unbiased perspective on your business and its products or services. They can identify strengths and weaknesses that may not be immediately apparent to those within the business, and develop a strategy that plays to your strengths and mitigates weaknesses.

3. Efficiency:

Developing a marketing and sales strategy in-house can be a time-consuming process, especially if your team lacks the necessary expertise. Professionals can create a strategy more quickly and efficiently, saving your team time and resources.

4. Focus:

Professionals can help your business focus on its core competencies by taking care of your marketing and sales strategy. This allows your team to focus on what they do best, such as product development or customer service.

5. Measurable Results:

Professionals can use data and analytics to measure the effectiveness of your marketing and sales strategy, and adjust it as necessary to improve results. This can lead to increased ROI and a higher level of success for your business.

6. Competitive Advantage:

By working with a professional to develop your marketing and sales strategy, you can gain a competitive advantage over other businesses in your industry. A well-designed strategy can help you stand out from your competition, attract more customers, and increase your market share.

Working with a professional to develop your marketing and sales strategy can offer many benefits, including expertise, objectivity, efficiency, focus, measurable results, and a competitive advantage. By investing in a professional, your business can create a strategy that is tailored to your specific needs, and achieve long-term success.
