An Outside Perspective to Guide Marketing Efforts
At some point, many small businesses find they're putting a lot of effort into marketing but not seeing the results they want. It happens.
Well-intentioned marketing efforts can veer off-track if you're not evaluating them. When you're working in the business every day, it can be difficult to step back and consider which marketing activities are truly giving you value, and which ones should be replaced by new opportunities.
We provide an outside perspective to give you insights on what's working and what isn't through a documented marketing audit.
You'll be asked to provide your existing documentation in the following areas for us to evaluate and provide insights on. Don’t worry if some of these areas are unfamiliar; we walk you through each section to explain what’s required.
STRATEGY & RESOURCES

ASSETS & TACTICS
