GET FOCUSED ON THings that matter...

According to a recent Forrester report, it cites that marketers are failing to use digital platforms effectively because they lack focus, they don't understand the platform,  don't have the right resources in place, and seek the wrong measurements. To develop your personalized 2017 plan, we will concentrate on answering the following five questions which will culminate into a year long, multi-platform plan to support brand building and critical business priorities.

How YOU stack up against competitors?

We will develop a comparison matrix that showcases the competitive environment. Brands are always fighting for eyeballs and identifying opportunities for engagement across social platforms.  Getting a clear understanding of your competitive environment, the tools, the tactics and the content types used to engage, will provide us with a solid foundation in building the right engagement model that will yield a competitive edge.

How will we do things different in 2017?

Social media channels play an essential role in the entire customer experience from awareness to acquisition to advocacy which is why a good strategy will align many tactics against each of these key moments. Our 2017 plan will be grounded in a solid understanding of the ideal customer(s), The brand and it’s new products and the trends shaping larger cultural landscape that might affect both.
