Here's how we work.


Initial Getting Started Discovery Session

During this call we’ll learn about your current marketing efforts as well as future goals and objectives.


Total Online Presence Audit

We will review your current marketing to get a baseline and to identify opportunities.


Map of Competitive Landscape

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


Core Message and Ideal Client Persona Development

We’ll conduct research or interview 5 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.


Session 2 - Core Message Presentation

Once we complete our initial research, we will schedule a mid-point meeting to share the items listed above and make sure we are on the right track.


Customer Journey Map Brainstorm

Using our 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.


Lead Generating Editorial Plan

Based on our keyword research we’ll build a content strategy using our “hub” pages approach.


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.


Quarterly Execution Calendar

We will tie all of our research together in a calendar with a focus on channels, content, cadence, and priorities for the next quarter.


Session 3 - Presentation of Findings and Plan

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 30-45 days and involves three 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.
