    You have a vision for your business.

    We can help you market your business to achieve it.

    Our Strategic Marketing Process

    Our three-step process is the best way to build a marketing system that produces consistent leads. It's not quick or easy, so it's not for everyone. But it works. 

    • Plan

      Before you begin any journey, you need to decide where you want to go. You have to get the lay of the land and decide the best route to get you there. Marketing should be approached in the same considered, deliberate way. 

    • Execute

      Once you understand the topography you are in and the target you want to reach, only then can you decide the best means to cross the divide. Similarly, marketing decisions should be based on research and a thorough understanding of your current situation. 

    • Measure

      Measuring your progress along the route can give signals as to when you will arrive. So too in marketing, metrics give you valuable feedback so you can make adjustments and gain efficiencies.

    You have probably figured out that "Fire, aim, ready" is not an effective way to approach marketing. Yet, that's what many SMBs do. They try different marketing efforts and hope something works. Guessing and hoping is expensive and time-consuming. We provide a thorough situation analysis to fully understand your businesses’ place in the market so that we can then make the strategic marketing decisions that move your business forward.



    From websites to social media to email marketing to skywriting--there is no shortage of marketing tactics. To perform each well requires specific skills and expertise. It's nearly impossible for the mid-sized company to find, hire, and retain the experts they need quickly. We house a wide array of digital experts with cutting-edge skills who execute marketing campaigns all day, every day so our clients can maintain their competitive advantage.


    You can't improve what you don't measure. Before we execute any tactics, we plan how we will measure the marketing campaigns. We identify the key performance indicators and the people who will be responsible for their metrics. With a detailed measurement plan, you can see your progress on your goals as well as how to adjust the campaigns for continual process improvement. Continuing to measure and adjust campaigns is the means to higher ROI.


    The best way to lay the groundwork for a successful marketing program is to fully understand the environment in which you are marketing your product or service. Without this in-depth knowledge, you are guessing on which marketing initiatives to employ and hoping they will work. Guessing and hoping is time-consuming and expensive. There is a much better way to earn the trust of your ideal customers and get a higher return on your marketing investment. It starts with a marketing situation analysis and market research, and a written marketing strategy.

    Situation Analysis

    A situation analysis takes a 360° look at where your business sits right now in the marketplace. It examines the industry you are in as well as your business’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT analysis). Often, it includes a brand audit to compare the gap between what your brand is communicating and how it is being perceived. A competitor analysis uncovers your top competitors’ strengths and weaknesses and the target market analysis reveals what is most important to your ideal customers.

    Market Research

    The better you understand your customers, and how they will interact with your product or services, the greater your competitive advantage. Our target market research identifies the critical aspects of your target markets. Product development research answers questions about how your product intersects with users. Customer satisfaction and loyalty analysis can garner insights about why customers buy from you. And name, logo, and tagline testing ensures that your brand elements have the desired effects. 

    Marketing Strategy

    A marketing strategy is a deliberate, written direction that guides your tactical decisions. (Tactics are things like SEO, social media, email marketing, digital advertising, etc.) It is a plan, informed by a thorough understanding of your business’s situation which delivers communication to the right audience at the right time and in the right place. A good marketing strategy will make your marketing spend more efficient and propel your business forward. 


    There are many ways to carry out a marketing strategy. Listed below are the tactics we can execute to accomplish your strategic goals. These are best utilized as a part of a custom marketing system we devise, but we can also help you with any of them on their own.

    Measurement Plans

    If you want to stretch your marketing budget, you have to measure each activity. And just as you write a detailed blueprint for your marketing tactics, you have to write a specific plan for measurement. It’s only in measuring and making smart adjustments that you can gain critical efficiencies. We create measurement plans that ensure the correct monitoring of efforts.

    Key Performance Indicators

    Measure your marketing performance with smart KPIs that reflect your company goals. We can choose metrics that are easy to quantify, and that are clear indicators of sales and sales-related activities. KPIs don't have to be rocket science; they just have to be good indicators of your marketing system's performance.

    Marketing Analytics

    Marketing analytics refers to all the platforms and systems marketers use to measure marketing performance. Benefits of using marketing analytics include identifying long-term trends, accurately measuring marketing ROI, and demonstrating marketing’s value to your organization with the numbers to back it up.
