Many of our clients start working with us after burning some cash using great marketing tools the wrong way. To get the marketing tool to work effectively, they need to have a specific role and set of messages. Thus, you need to have an action plan that unites all the tools to get you more leads and convert them into paying customers. To develop a meaningful action plan, you need to study your customers' needs, examine the best practices in your industry, and articulate how you are addressing the customers' needs better than your competition does.
Digital Marketing Strategy vs. Running Experiments
Developing a digital marketing strategy does not contradict the idea of experimentation and growth hacking. In fact, a strategy facilitates and improves the performance of marketing experiments. A digital strategy will define the hypotheses you will want to test with your experiments, set the criteria for success, plan and prioritize your experimentation projects.
You may compare it to flying a passenger aircraft. You will need an experienced pilot (growth hacker) to react to changing conditions and take full control if something goes against the plan. The pilot still needs to have an approved route (strategy) to know the destination and ensure their actions are aligned with other pilots (other company departments).
Digital Marketing Strategy Building Blocks
Customers' needs and demand assessment
Doing the keywords research, we will see how your customers articulate their needs and how often they look for a product or service like the one you want to launch. Open data analysis will show us the issues your audience faces and their unmet needs.
Industry best practices
We will carefully examine the competition. You will learn where they get traffic from and how they try to convert the leads into paying customers. Most importantly, you will know which of those attempts are successful. One of those cases when learning from the mistakes of others is feasible.
Digital marketing strategy framework
Depending on the industry, we will use different frameworks to address the process of converting a prospect into a customer. For example, the pirate AARRR (Acquisition, Activation, Revenue, Retention, Referral) usually works for SaaS companies. Consumer e-commerce businesses usually suit into See, Think, Do, Care framework. If you have any preferences, make sure to let us know before we start.
