Wanted – For Stealing Attention!

Our job is to cut through with relevance and interact with people in a way that’s valued and ultimately affects their behaviour. You need strategy driven tactics because every business is now in the business of content creation and they're all chasing the same target:
Time poor, message-saturated PEOPLE.

Research

Identify Your Target

Really understand who your customers are. Know your product, identify and validate it’s compelling value proposition. Evaluate your competitors and investigate the market environment. Know where you stand and what you stand for. This information determines your objectives.

Strategy

Take Aim

With a clear objective you can harness your knowledge to inform a dynamic, strategic plan so you can focus your effort and resources to best effect. Wanted has a simple formula for success: Have a sound strategy, work with the best to produce what your audience want, put it where they will find it and be ready for their response.

Tactics

Focus Your Firepower!

Our need to communicate hasn’t changed, but the way we communicate has. It’s immediate, it’s reciprocal and it’s everywhere. This complex market environment presents infinite opportunity and a critical need to cut through the clutter to direct your finite resources to best advantage.

Kate Neale is Wanted!

        

As the principal and driving force of Wanted Consulting, I work with executive management to deliver impact through strategic marketing and creative tactical initiatives. I manage content production services to deliver commercial entertainment, marketing content and impact campaigns.

For those disrupting the market or adapting to it, I provide clarity, discern direction and maximise the value of resources. I’m wanted for the commercial acumen and creative talent I’ve cultivated traversing the financial services, media and entertainment industries.

The financial services sector taught me how business operates, what makes markets move and what it means to be compliant, so my strategies are anchored in a thorough understanding of business dynamics. The media and entertainment sector taught me how to create to penetrate, distribute and monetise a message.

Leaders know the challenge of knowing what to do next, is greater than knowing how to do it. That challenge is more difficult for those pioneering change, driving innovation and challenging the status quo.

I offer game changers a refreshing candor afforded by a career spent at the forefront of change, driven by advancing technology and creative ingenuity that’s indispensable in creating marketing that will compel awareness, create desire and change behaviour.

Why Wanted?

Choose Wanted Consulting when you want creative solutions that deliver commercial objectives.
Backed by an extensive consortium of talented professionals with complimentary expertise, Wanted's unique combination of diverse hands-on experience, commercial acumen and creative talent, drives marketing efforts to maximum effect.

Research That Is - Thorough

Wanted explores all the factors that influence the dynamic shifting landscape of a market space to inform each unique strategy. All our solutions are market driven.

Insightful

Data is just numbers without valid interpretation. Wanted deploys decades of commercial acumen and experience to find the truth, to read what’s disclosed between the lines and numbers to draw insightful analysis.

Powerful

Knowledge is power, but when you’re close to the subject your perspective can be skewed. Wanted uses objective insights based on truth and reality as a powerful foundation for the most robust and effective direction.


Strategy That Is - Bespoke

There’s nothing ‘standard’ in business and marketing models today. Every market and every market participant is unique, so it is that a content strategy defined by Wanted is unique and specific to the circumstances and objectives of the client.

Objective

Wanted holds an impartial position, which increases the likelihood that decisions are based on factual, empirical and verifiable information, ensuring a strategy filtered of biased agendas.

Bold

Boldness has genius, power and greatness in it, but to be bold is to step outside of the known and the conventional to find your own path. Wanted is prepared to differentiate and lead when required.


Tactics That Are - Effective

It’s not just possible to entertain as you inform and educate – it’s essential! Wanted produces content that people respond to because we create content they want, and they get it where and when they want it.

Relevant

Wanted sees consumers as people and people respond to well placed, relevant content. When the content is relevant and valuable to them, they don’t just invite the content into their space, they share it and pass it on.

Creative

Creativity is highly undervalued and often overlooked in favour of big budgets, but it can be the most cost effective resource.  You can’t fake it or take it, you have to make it. The creative is the most important element.

Wisdom That Is - Evolved

Just like compounding interest, when wisdom accumulated over decades of commercial experience is constantly added to, its value is exponential. Paired with the vigour of youth, it’s a potent combination.

Inspired

Academic knowledge provides great soil, but talent is the seed that grew things like Boolean logic, Einstein’s theories and liquid soap! Of course if one has both, so much the better.

Proven

Skills can be learned, but experience is earned and knowledge without evidence is just theory. The roads I’ve traveled demonstrate knowledge put to task.
