Trust The Process

Trust The Process

When discussing occupations everyone has a general idea of what they think you do, yet most of the time it’s not accurate. This can be applied to most jobs but can get even trickier when you work in a position, of a field that hasn’t been around for decades like digital marketing. When I tell someone I work for a digital marketing agency, I know that often the person just assumes I post to Twitter and Instagram all day long. My mom thinks I work on Madison Avenue, pitching ideas for commercials. Society thinks I am a slave to Twitter, Facebook and Google analytics. The truth? All of the above…-ish. They are missing a very large portion of a job in digital marketing research. Research is key, whether it’s market research, or researching which trend is coming next, nonetheless, research is an important aspect of digital marketing. Like I stated previously, digital marketing is a relatively new field that is rapidly changing and constantly evolving. So to clear up any confusion, we’ll just tell you exactly what it is that we do.

 

 

 

We are fortunate enough to have new business coming in every day. While we love taking on new clients, we are selective about who we work with. This is to ensure we can devote enough time to the client and make sure we are a good fit. After we have vetted our potential new client, we discuss what it is they want our help with. Every client has different needs, and sometimes clients aren’t even sure what it is they need help with. This is why we are the professionals because we can help decide what services will be best suited for each particular client.

 

We then peruse what the client has as far as: websites, social media accounts, content and the engagement they are receiving thus far. We make suggestions and fix any issues that can be addressed immediately.

 

From here we will do what we call a market analysis or competitive analysis. Essentially, we find the competition to see exactly what is it they are doing, if it’s working, and assess the quality of the work.

 

We regroup to discuss strategy and see where we can help. Whether it’s

  • Building a sleek new website
  • Taking high resolution photos for your website or social media posts
  • Edit video footage
  • Create new logos
  • Writing blogs for content and
  • Aiding with search engine optimization
  • Promoting events/products

 

We can be as hands on or hands off as necessary.

 

During a beta testing period track progress and see what is doing well and what can be improved upon. We once again reconvene with the client and decide what aspects of their brand they want continuous help with, what can be done in-house and what they no longer need assistance in.

 

This process can change at any time and looks slightly different for every client, but hopefully, you know have a better understanding of the perplexing digital marketing world.
