Zee2A's Marketing Edge Blog

(2) Who Are David and Vanessa Deakin? And Who Should Read This Blog?

We mentor Professional Service Executives in building profitable practices. We use principles of marketing that have proven effective over and over again for more than twenty years, and are used with consistent success on three continents.

  • If you’re new to professional practice, you can expect to find your practice growing at a rate that previously was the stuff of imagination.
  • If your practice is ‘stalled’ getting to the next level you can expect to find that getting over the hump and onto the next growth slope will come easier than you could have imagined.
  • If you’re holding off from discussing price increases with your clients you can expect to be reconnected with the real value you provide to clients.
  • If you’re not working with your ideal clients right now, you can expect to amaze yourself when you paint a crystal-clear picture of not only who your ideal clients are, but where you should be prospecting for them.
  • If you’re too busy to market yourself right now, you can expect to confront the realisation that you’re probably not aligning what you do with your vision for your practice – and then you will be provided with the tools to address this misalignment and redress the imbalance between your work and your purpose.
  • If you’re convinced marketing doesn’t work for you, you can expect to find that marketing works far better than you could have imagined – but only if you do it right.

Why the name Zee2A ?

The concept conveyed by our business name is quite simple: We are all taught from a young age to do things in a certain way and in a certain order. We crawl before we walk; we read lines of text on a page from left to right; we travel from A to B, and the alphabet runs from A to Z(ee). Most of those conventions will serve us well for a lifetime—but what if some of them don’t work for us anymore? What if we start learning a language where reading from left to right just wouldn’t work? Or if, in our business, we start to find that doing things a certain way ‘because that’s the way we’ve always done it’ is no longer producing the results we desire? Are we able to explore alternatives which at first glance seem counter-intuitive, ‘outside the box’?

Zee2A (get it?) turns conventional wisdom on its head to ensure peak performance for your organization and maximum return on your marketing and customer satisfaction investment. Give us a try: We may challenge your preconceptions but the results will speak for themselves!
