Honestly Ask Yourself, ‘What is Our Digital Marketing Strategy?’
How well does it integrate with our overall business growth initiatives and existing marketing plan? What is the ROI our current internet marketing is delivering?
Smart Insights reports that 46% of businesses are ‘doing digital marketing, but have no defined strategy’, and only 10% have a 2-3 year vision or strategic plan. Although the digital space is moving quick, you need a strategy that is designed around your unique product set and market.
Understanding Your Business
We look for partners, and with that mindset, we want to understand as much of your business as possible. During the proposal process we learn basic information and get a sense of the competitive landscape, but there are three key things we do:
Closely review direct (and indirect) competitors: products, marketing strategies, offers, websites, social activity, rankings & traffic, messaging, marketing position and anything else that will impact our approach and goals.
Learn Your Buyers
Knowing your buying cycle and how customers research your company, along with buyer personas is vital for developing content, appropriate conversion tools and sales follow-up.
We don't plan on becoming product experts, but do need a core understanding of what makes your product unique and the solutions it solves to develop messaging that connects. We're pretty technical in nature, so we're used to complex products.
Defining the Measures of Success
Increasing closed deals, orders shipped, and projects booked are the end of the day goals, but it takes a succinct set of metrics and KPIs to measure progress, wins and adjustments.
Understanding Your ROI
Simply put, we work backwards from your growth goals to understand how to guarantee your ROI (learn more about our guarantee). We have a more complex worksheet, but the end result are sales, lead generation, and traffic metrics to work from.

- Phone Calls
- Raw Email Leads
