Credico UK on How Brands can Survive the Consumer Spending Squeeze

Chester, UK (PRWEB) May 27, 2017

The Bank of England is warning of a significant consumer spending squeeze, which could hit brands hard as the uncertainty of Brexit continues to disrupt business confidence.

About Credico UK:

In a recent statement, the Bank of England’s Governor Mark Carney warned that wages are unlikely to keep up with prices for the remainder of 2017, and while he was upbeat looking at the financial forecast beyond 2017, the coming seven months could be trying times for both businesses and consumers.

The governor’s statement comes after the release of the Bank of England’s Quarterly Inflation Report, which raised its forecast for inflation to 2.8%, a 0.4% increase from the previous report published in February.

The Bank of England also confirmed that the UK’s rate of economic growth is also slowing – falling from 2% to 1.9%

Leading field marketing agency Credico UK believes that both consumers and businesses have many factors to contend with which have significantly contributed to this predicted spending squeeze. With many still reeling from Brexit, the announcement of the snap election and the resulting fall the pound – which is currently trading at around $1.29, 12% lower than before last year’s referendum it’s no wonder that consumers and businesses are facing financial woes.

However, for UK brands that are already facing challenges regarding their future of trading in the EU, the news of a decrease in consumer spending while highly unwelcome, could bring with it an opportunity to change their marketing tactics. Credico UK believes that in this squeeze, consumers are going to need more support when making purchase decisions and are going to be more particular about where they spend their money. As such, the agency believes now is the ideal time for brands to ramp up their face to face marketing and offer a more engaging and immersive brand experience.

Credico UK believes that face to face marketing is a crucial source of support to consumers – offering them a platform from which to really connect with brands and learn more about how a product or service could add value to their lives. Face to face promotes individuality and offers consumers a personalised service which fully addresses their unique needs.

Credico UK is confident that in the current climate, investing in face to face marketing will help brands to secure customer loyalty and drive sales, despite the predicted spending squeeze.

With a network spanning the UK and Ireland, Credico UK is well established to provide outsourced, face to face field marketing solutions to brands looking to rapidly increase their ROI, market reach and customer acquisitions. Working with some of the UK’s biggest brands in the telecommunications, charity and financial sectors the agency has seen first-hand the difference in- person marketing can make to a brand’s bottom line.

Solis-Chirino Real Estate Group from the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty Miami-Coral Gables Branch Achieves Top 5 Commercial Award

Coral Gables, FL (PRWEB) May 26, 2017

Solis-Chirino Real Estate Group from the Miami-Coral Gables Branch Office location recently beat more than 2,000 sales professionals around nationwide to achieve the Top 5 Commercial Award from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.

“When you have a drive for success, the market is always doing amazing” is Miguel Solis and Mario Chirino’s signature quote.

While their practice primarily includes residential real estate sales and leasing, the team known as the Solis-Chirino Real Estate Group, achieved a national milestone of 5th in the Nation for Commercial Gross Commission Income of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in 2016. The term practice is used as an adjective for the team, as Miguel Solis and Mario Chirino frequently say “Practicing to be the best Realtor to our customers.”

Some of their 2016 notable transactions include two sales in which they worked with both the buyer and seller! That’s part of their magic, to match the right buyer with the right property.

“There is my daily business card goal,” explains Miguel. “My daily routine includes dressing for success, putting 20 business cards in my right pocket, and making habitual stops to local walk up cafeterias for a Cuban espresso shot – where my goal is to listen four times as much as I talk. Then I will strike up a conversation or two or three… as many as it takes to be sure that I give out the 20 business cards that are burning a hole in my pocket.”

They leave no rock unturned, particularly when it comes to research, and they find the deal that no one else puts together. For example, in 2016, Miguel and Mario brokered a sale in Edgewater, also known as the Theater and Entertainment District, on a property they had originally sold in 2014 to a hotel institutional investor from South America. The property was listed by an out-of-area firm. Miguel realized the location information was incorrect, resulting in an asking price considerably below market value. He contacted one of their many international investors and proposed the property to them. Miguel let them know what his research has uncovered. As a result, the investor jumped on the opportunity and closed on the sale.

With little improvement to the property, Miguel made the remarkable suggestion to put the property up for sale at $2 million over the original purchase price. Multiple offers later, it sold to yet another foreign investor that outbid all the competition. “That’s my definition of no stone unturned. I found the opportunity in the listing location and presented it to the first buyer. Then, when the timing presented itself through positive market conditions, I continued to turn those stones to find another buyer,” explained Miguel. “Done deal.”

Miguel and Mario closed two other significant commercial deals in 2016 that can be credited to the 20 daily business cards. In both instances, buyers and sellers are individuals they met on the elevator or at one of their daily Cuban cafetería stops for cafecito.

To the Solis and Chirino team, Southeast Florida is their inventory. Performing with the right attitude, establishing relationships, and loving what they do is what propels Miguel Solis and Mario Chirino to excel and rank at the top of the global brand Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty.

With a combined thirty-five years of experience continually providing customers with the best experience possible, the Solis-Chirino Real Estate Group strives on professional service, as well as building relationships to last a lifetime. On a daily basis, numerous return clients count on the team members’ knowledge, experience, and understanding of the real estate market. The proof is in the cafecito, as Solis-Chirino Real Estate Group thrives on referrals of past satisfied clients. This is a true testament to customer satisfaction and trust.
