Fire & Security - How To Choose A Digital Marketing Agency

Fire & Security directors beware of expensive mistakes!

Neither the marketing guy who cold called you nor the one you know through your networking breakfast will have the skills and experience to sell more fire protection and security systems.

How do I know? We regularly meet colleagues from your industry who are repenting their first marketing investment.

They hired the smooth talking, shark-tooth necklace-wearing consultant who promised to publish 100 tweets and some blog posts every month. Or they listened to the promises of an experienced old-school marketer who said promoting your business for two days a week would be all you needed.

Take a deep breath and consider these two things:

  • What exactly have they promised to do for you?
  • And is it what you actually need?

The Most Dangerous Conversation In Your Fire & Security Office

You've been marketing your Fire & Security business website for a few months now. Suddenly one of your admin staff pipes up.

I don’t think we need to carry on doing marketing,” 

Why’s that?

Well most of the leads come from existing customers

Now, this comes from the person who deals with your enquiries before passing them to sales. You should take notice, right?


This is one of the most dangerous conversations that can ever happen in the back office of your Fire & Security business.

You're teetering on the edge of a precipice! That unskilled, ill-informed 'back of an envelope' analysis is well-intended. Heed it at your peril... It will harm your business...

S/he is about to poop all over your sales!

Honesty Counts – How Fire & Security Companies Blow It But Don’t Know It!

Honest and trustworthy. That’s how the Fire & Security companies we speak to describe themselves. When a customer is putting the safety and security of their family, staff and clients in your hands, it’s critical!

How do your clients know? You have the NSI Gold and SSAIB accreditations to back it up, that’s how.

But what if we told you, this hard-earned reputation is being risked by large numbers of companies because they chose the wrong Fire &  Security Systems Marketer?

Honesty is critical to your business. So why put your reputation on the line because of one easily avoidable mistake?

That is what we saw on a Fire & Security website last week. Is your business a victim too?

Hypocrisy In The Fire & Security Industry...

It’s become a bit of a ritual.

Every day on LinkedIn I look out for the latest Fire & Security cheap option pictures.

You know the ones. Wiring hanging out of alarm control panels. Fire extinguishers as door stops. Rusty Fire extinguishers. CCTV cameras sited in stupid places. Fire doors blocked by dart boards.

My news feed cup runneth over - it's clear that going DIY or cheap makes you all very cross!

Top 5 LinkedIn Tips For Fire & Security Directors

Have you ever said: "LinkedIn doesn't work for our industry!"?

We have run many 1-2-1 training consultations for Company Directors on LinkedIn. Attendees leave with sure-fire training on how to get the best from LinkedIn for their industry.

And here are our top 5 tips for the Fire & Security market:


1. Complete Your LinkedIn Headline

Your Headline is the most important part of your LinkedIn profile.

It's the first thing that anyone sees about you in Google if they search for your name. And your headline is something that is easy to control so make it count!

Most of the profiles that we see say Fire Engineer or Security Director or Owner. And then the name of the Business.  That's a waste of some of your 150 characters.

Talk about your specialist areas. Fire & Security is a crowded marketplace so just adding words like Fire or Security isn't going to make you stand out enough for LinkedIn to display your profile for searches around those keywords.

Think about the areas where you have had the most impact and mention those in your headline. Is that for the domestic market with home automation? Do your best skills lie with fire protection or access control in the commercial sector?

What problem can you solve for people? What are the benefits of working with you and your company?

Help LinkedIn and Google to understand what you do and who you can help. Then they can rank your profile in a search for that keyword on their platform.


2. Stop Competitors From Seeing Your Customers
