I will become familiar with your business culture, challenges & workflow during your initial consultation. From this perspective I will strategically create a structured marketing strategy solution that custom suits your business needs. This process involves working directly with me to hammer out what challenges you are experiencing and want to address as well as eliminate on your project so that we can develop what content will need to be developed for the channel strategy you want to address prior to launching any planning.
2. Communications Design
Your strategy is now moved to the design stage. Here I will create and develop any mock-ups based on your company’s brand and/or the information gathered from our ‘Research & Communication‘ stage. I will focus on your feedback to fine tune your marketing materials to perfection. It is IMPORTANT to me that YOU ARE SATISFIED at this stage. For this reason I offer design packages with various amounts of revisions to perfect your mock-ups before moving into the development stage. If your desired design package doesn’t have enough revisions within it we can talk about adding more.
3. Development & Scheduling
Here I place the body of the strategy on the engine. You will now see your finalized communications materials. Scheduling and implementation is then completed along with any final touches. Your campaign will go live upon receiving your final sign off. Since all of my strategies are built for easy modifications, custom training and documents will be provided along with my extended customer support service prior to moving into the final testing stage.
I test every strategy throughout the course of the project, however, after launch I also require an extra set of eyes – from my own testing team and from your designated user group/audience group to perform goal-based testing. This 30-day round of testing helps ensure that as few stones as possible are left unturned in order to deliver results on your project; ensuring that has been rigorously evaluated from multiple levels to ensure happy clients.
