 A Sensecheck review is just a 60-second first impression, more of a  thought starter ( a “sensecheck”) than a complete piece of consultancy. Of course, you want to give value (and encourage a dialogue) but inevitably this isn’t a replacement for detailed considered advice.

Well, it may be a bit late in one sense,  but on the other hand, if your comment stops them from running collateral that is “wrong”  – even as a last-minute decision, you could save them a lot of money (and build your credibility). Then again, marketing never stops so even if it’s too late for this idea, it’s not too late for the next. Sometimes also members just want a bit of reassurance that their work is effective.

Undoubtedly yes. But that can be very difficult and/or expensive to do frequently. Particularly in B2B; thus for our members you and your fellow reviewers are probably the next best thing. And for sure, better than just taking a pure guess from a perspective trapped inside the company bubble. 5 external views should give sufficient breadth to avoid a perspective that is just inappropriate.

Agency management or consultants with about 10 years of business/marketing experience looking to start new conversations, and are willing to give regular feedback (at your convenience).

New conversations, the opportunity to test your own client ideas. Publicity on our website, and a financial “thank you” at the year-end (after the Beta).

If you are chosen to be on the panel for a particular test, you will receive an email notification. The subject line is
as follows “The SenseCheck portal has selected you to review an idea.

You then click the START REVIEWING button and follow the simple prompts.

Email info@sensecheck.com and we will get back to you soonest.

It's a pleasure to be part of the SenseCheck community, as I know how important a second pair of eyes can be when it comes to your marketing - marketing your business is crucial, so getting the right message across is essential. Using SenseCheck streamlines the process, and gives businesses peace of mind that their marketing campaigns and ideas will bring results.
