What a Strategy First Engagement Includes

  1. Initial Getting Started Discovery Meeting – During this meeting, we’ll learn about your current marketing efforts as well as future goals and objectives.

  2. Core Message and Ideal Client Persona Development – We’ll conduct research or interview 5-8 ideal clients (depending on your package level) to discover your most effective competitive advantage. You will receive access to interview summaries, ideal client profiles, and our recommendation for a core marketing message that will allow you to stand out from the competition.

  3. Editorial plan – Based on our keyword research, we’ll build a content strategy using our “hub” pages approach that will allow you to map out 6-12 months of content as part .

  4. Customer Journey Map – Using the Duct Tape Marketing proprietary "Marketing Hourglass" technology we’ll help you create a roadmap of suggested marketing tactics for each of the phases of the customer buying journey: Know, like, trust, try, buy, repeat and refer.

  5. Competitive Landscape – We’ll study your biggest competitors and create high-level summaries and a report on their marketing strengths and weaknesses.

  6. Priority Growth Recommendations – From our research and an audit of your existing marketing and online presence, we’ll recommend the highest-impact activities you need to consider fixing or implementing today.

  7. Presentation of Findings – Once we complete our work we’ll schedule a time to meet with you and your team to deliver the items above and map out what we believe is the best strategic approach for you to take with your marketing. From this point, you’ll have several options for how you put our recommendations into action. We can teach you or your staff to do it or we can do it for you.

The entire process takes about 2-3 months and involves meetings with you and your team.

When you receive our strategy findings, you’ll have a clear direction for standing out and attracting the ideal client and a roadmap of the most effective tactics to support your strategy.
