Great question, I’m a member of the Duct Tape marketing network founded by the best selling small business author John Jantsch. The network pools resources and ideas as well as works together to help each of our clients get an experience far beyond what any one person can provide.
It’s typically not a problem unless your team is not performing or holds your site hostage. I will require full access or a good (timely) working relationship with your team. In addition, my efforts will simply enhance any good work they may already be doing or uncover weaknesses that need to be addressed. Also, my reporting and monitoring will cover activities across your website, SEO and the rest of your online presence. It’s very likely you will get more clarity on critical KPI’s with me involved.
Yes we do it all the time. Where most marketers go wrong is a lack of strategy and messaging to help the business stand out and attract ideal clients. You need the right combination of medium and message that is very rare and is the core reason why so many marketing efforts fail. We know how to fix this problem and we do it as step 1 in our efforts.
Our work is always custom, but at the same time our package offerings have shown time and time again to be the only proven effective solution for 90% of small businesses. We aren’t interested in taking your money, like our competitors might be, if it won’t get solid long-term results for both of us. So be careful if you expect a single tactic, like Facebook ads for example, to solve all your marketing problems. It takes a Total Online Presence focus to really succeed and grow in today’s world.
Yes of course we will. Depending on the package we devise for your business, we can weave in a variety of advertising strategies and platforms to meet objectives in an affordable, effective manner. No matter what we do with advertising, to get the best results it always builds off of strategy and the content and media resources we build.
