Marketing Assessment and Strategy Development

cheshire-cat-quote-300x215Every day there is a new tool or mobile app or social media site being released that you can explore. Every week the mainstream social media sites are announcing changes and enhancements to their platforms. Every few months the demographics and growth trends of the various sites start changing.

Marketing your brand on social and mobile platforms is no longer edgy or innovative. If you want to be found, trusted, and remembered, you need to not only have a strong and recognizable brand identity on these platforms, but you need to be contextually relevant and engaging. That means keeping up with changes. That also means starting with a marketing strategy that is both focused and flexible.

Let me take a look at your current marketing efforts. I can help you identify:

  • How to can get better results.
  • What’s working and what should you do more of.
  • What you should stop doing.
  • What you are not doing that would reveal new opportunities.
  • How to calculate the value of your social media efforts.
  • How to improve workflow.
  • How to produce more results?

I work with you to narrow in on and define the most important elements will drive the results you are looking for. Through research, we can help you define the type of people (personas) you want to focus your resources on reaching and engaging with, including what they care about and how your brand can help them reach their goals.

Your competitive analysis will reveal what is working or not working for your competitors, as well as, where there are opportunities for your brand to fill a need that your competition is missing out on. Together, we will be able to identify your brand’s strengths and weaknesses compared to the competition and provide insights of what topics or actions you may want to avoid based on mistakes others have already made.

Finally, I will work with your team on implementing your plan and developing a workflow that integrates with various other initiatives and is timely and flexible enough to respond to real-time changes.

I will establish the metrics your team should track to make sure your marketing initiative is staying focused on the business goals.

Once your brand has a defined marketing roadmap focused on specific destinations, each time there is a detour based on the various changes that happen on the social web, your team will be able to adapt without losing focus of why they are online and who they are trying to reach.
