About Us

WTWS have provided marketing consultancy services for over 20 years to businesses across many industry sectors, large and small. What we have learned over this time is that creating a strategic marketing plan inevitably improves business performance.

Usually a blend of different marketing channels is most effective but the key to success is ensuring that the marketing mix deployed is the most appropriate for your specific business needs, adhering to the agreed strategic plan and continually measuring performance to maximise the return on your investment.

Often our clients have internal marketing resources but senior Marketing Director support is missing or specialist marketing knowledge is not represented on the board. Our role is to provide that knowledge and guidance, giving strategic direction to the business and directing internal resources to drive the agreed marketing strategy forward.

This role is fulfilled either as an Executive Director, marketing consultancy or a Non-Executive Director.
