If you don’t have a plan, any action you take both takes you closer and further from your goal. If you have a plan, if you have identified goals you wish your business to reach, then we can help you put together a Digital Marketing Strategy to reach those goals. The comprehensiveness of the plan is a factor of the client, the needs, and desired end result.
Our approach follows a 5 step process to develop your Digital Marketing Strategy.
Step 1: Business Description. This is mostly dependent on the information you provide to help us to understand what your business is about, who you sell to, and who you want to gain as customers. It includes a discussion on your competition, both direct and indirect, and your company resources. We will also do a review of current marketing practices, online and offline.
Step 2: Identification of Goals. This begins with your business goals and extends into your marketing goals. We will work with you to establish some baseline measurements, or a plan to begin to put those measurements into place.
Step 3: Strategy and Tactics. This is we take the inputs from Steps 1 and 2 and add some analysis on your current activities and results and use that to formulate our recommended strategies, tactics and actions. This may include website development, content development, digital advertising, search engine optimization, ecommerce, social media, and more. It may be only one of these, or a combination, depending on the goals and needs.
Step 4: Implementation Plan. A well constructed plan is bound to fail if not well implemented. We have over 25 years of experience implementing marketing plans, from high level scheduling to detailed tactical execution. Some plan elements and tactics are short-term, some are long-term. Some plan elements are high priority, some are low priority. These are all part of the Implementation Plan to ensure your Digital Marketing Strategy is if being driven to achieve your goals.
Step 5: Follow Up & Cycle Reviews. Every strategy and implementation plan requires monitoring, review and adjustment. We build in cycle reviews and tracking to ensure we are generating the results expected, or making changes along the way to improve.
