Johannesburg – In a time when dreams have been dashed, new business ventures delayed and triple bottom lines slashed, Stratitude is stepping up to support local business.

For many businesses, the first two quarters of 2020 have been a case of sink or swim. One either had to reinvent themselves to remain relevant, or go at it alone and take one’s side hustle to the next level. In challenging times, businesses need innovative thinking. As an agency of creative problem solvers, Stratitude is doing its part to support businesses by providing marketing expertise worth R50 000, at no cost, to six registered organisations.

One registered local business will benefit from marketing support to the value of R40 000. This can range from a new logo to a website, a sales email or a digital campaign. Over and above this, five local businesses will each receive a free, 30-minute online marketing consultation.

“We understand the challenges so many organisations in the country are currently facing. We are in this together, which is why we are committed to helping businesses get through these tough times in a way that we know best – by providing focused, relevant and targeted marketing solutions”, says Sylvia Schutte, Stratitude managing director.

“Having said that, this initiative is more than just giving away free services. It’s about stepping up when businesses need support the most. It’s about using our skills and expertise as a full-service marketing agency for the benefit of businesses and the economy. It’s about aligning the messaging and positioning of brands with what their customers need, and assisting with promoting them on platforms and through channels on which their customers engage”, Schutte goes on to say.

All registered South African businesses are invited to send their details to Stratitude.
