It’s fair to say that we’ve been around the block a few times. We’re seasoned business people with years of experience who know a thing or two about the internet. We’ve worked on the supply side (in agencies) and on the client side (as customers) in organisations large and small, private and public sector, as owners, directors and non-executive directors.
We’ve worked in and run businesses like yours and have the scars to show for it. We’ve messed up a few times in our careers as well. But then we think that you learn more by trauma than you do by any other means, so it’s always satisfying for us when we can share our mistakes with our clients in order that they don’t have to make the same (usually expensive) ones as we’ve made for ourselves.
UK internet spend is growing at 18% which makes it the fastest growing economy on earth by some margin. But that also means that demand for digital services and expertise is outstripping supply. That’s great if you’re in the supply side of the industry, but if you’re on the client side, then you’re going to have to kiss a lot of frogs to find the princes.
The reality is that there’s very few regulations or standards in the internet industry and its moving faster than the law can keep up with. So it’s a bit like the Wild West right now. There are very few ‘best in class’ suppliers out there and many of the bad ones can still talk a good game, so how can you tell the difference?
That’s where eCommonSense comes in and how we add value.
We’ve worked with a huge variety of digital service providers and technology partners and we’re in this every day, talking to them on behalf of our clients. This gives us valuable insights into what sort of supplier will suit your company in terms of budget, cultural fit, working methodology and expertise. We help you build your strategy, then match you with best suppliers for your needs. We then help you with the management of the delivery process as much or as little as you require.
So, in short, we can help you move quicker with confidence in your decisions, whilst avoiding the pitfalls that catch so many businesses out when they do this alone.
