The Strategic Marketing Program
In today’s disability and aged care sectors it’s very easy to waste a lot of money on mainstream marketing tactics with little return. When every dollar counts, you need to stand out from your competitors, rather than see them as any kind of benchmark.
Smarter marketing begins with your customer - their needs, problems, fears and frustrations. In this market, the customer is not looking for a transaction. They are looking for someone they can trust.
This means that every staff member is now a marketer. So, if you’re a CEO, you need every staff member to ‘own’ the strategy and ‘live’ the brand on a daily basis. It also means being totally clear on your mission, your value proposition and, most importantly, your ideal customer.
So, to address these issues I took my 20+ years’ experience and customised it to the needs of CEOs, culminating in a 4 step process that identifies your ideal market niche, strengthens your internal and external brand and results in a practical Action Plan that works.
A Proven 4 Step Process
Solid research is the springboard for great strategic advice, so this 4 step process begins with primary and secondary research. We then customise the process to suit your specific market. Our workshops are highly engaging and extremely practical. The entire program takes 5-6 weeks.
Step 1. Research
Review local market data, your Strategic Plan, existing marketing materials and conduct 1:2:1 interviews (2-3 weeks).
Step 2. Brand Strategy
In this workshop we generate team ownership of the vision, the mission and the brand. We redefine basic marketing concepts to remove the jargon and empower the team. (1 day)
Step 3. Growth Strategy
In this workshop we identify your value proposition (& explain why it REALLY matters), your key target markets, messages and the most effective channels. Your team begins to build the Action Plan. (2 days)
Step 4. The Strategic Marketing Plan
You get a 12 month Marketing Action Plan and Brand Strategy. This becomes a working document.
