Why you need a marketing strategy
Having beautiful and impactful marketing assets is vital. But just as important is how you use that marketing, and how you use that brand. This is where marketing strategy comes in.
Once your business has the marketing fundamentals in place, with a holistic and thoughtful brand, a beautiful and engaging website, and maybe some awesome social media content lined up, the next question is what to do with it all. A proper marketing strategy will ensure that you actually get eyes on your business.
Whether that’s an effective social media content calendar, email marketing campaigns, Google Ads, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), or distributing printed marketing materials, you won’t get noticed unless you plan for this next stage.
Carefully timed messages, announcements, and launches will make sure you get the most bang for your buck, and the most attention for your business.
Marketing strategy with Fook
Allowing us to contribute at the strategic level means we can use our expertise to advise on where the focus of your advertising investment should be. Defining a strategy will mean reviewing your current marketing footprint and your business goals to determine what your priorities should be, and which touchpoints you should be covering.
We can tailor these recommendations and strategies based on any budget. We know that for many clients, resources are not infinite, and so they can’t necessarily afford to just blast adverts across all touchpoints. In those cases, we can advise on where you should focus your advertising, and where you’ll get the best return on investment.
For example, a digital marketing strategy might include everything from social media management, to email campaigns, to Search Engine Optimization, to Google Ads. Or, it might be the case that honing in on one of those areas would be more prudent, or having a phased approach where you spread your investment over time. Whatever is best, we can make it happen for you.
Our team has experience creating some of the world’s biggest ad campaigns, so there is no challenge too great or too small for us. We can advise, consult, and execute on any form of digital, print, or brand strategy over any time frame.
And while we are situated in Toronto and Edinburgh, we work with clients anywhere in the world who are looking for a marketing strategy or marketing consultancy.
Our marketing strategy process
To create a marketing strategy, the first step is to take time to understand who you are, your goals and ambitions, and your timelines. By building an image of what success looks like to you, and when you want to get there, then can we plot a path to that point.
From here, a good marketing plan ensures that you don’t use all of your momentum at once. Instead, you should aim to keep the noise up around your business for a sustained period of time. Otherwise, people will soon forget you.
This means planning which messages to deliver and when, and across which platforms, to drive people down your sales funnel. We have a keen strategic mind for knowing what messaging to use at each stage of the sales journey, and what role various marketing touchpoints play in that journey. The key is creating as frictionless a path to purchase as possible.
We also understand that marketing needs a longer term commitment. People need to become aware of you, and warm up to your brand and your service, before they make a purchase. It’s no good having a blast of social media ads and expecting people to act immediately.
Time and consideration is needed to have the biggest return on your investment, and we’ll give your business exactly that.
