But we prefer relationships – long, meaningful, mutually-beneficial relationships. We’re a family business helping good companies grow and do more with less.
Our team works with small and medium-sized owner-operated companies. We examine your current marketing plan and identify ways to make it more efficient. We find ways to improve a customer’s experience, and make your marketing messages more powerful.
Since October of 2008 – the start of America’s economic downturn – most of our clients, including all our home services clients – have experienced (and enjoyed!) double-digit and triple-digit growth. None of them have lost money.
We do not spend our time soliciting for new business. We do not charge an ad agency commission. We don’t do billable hours.
We have been waiting for someone like you since we started this company.
– Denise McIntosh, Custom Powder Systems, Springfield, MO
If you’re interested enough to have made it this far, here’s how it works:
Before we can suggest a price, we have to learn who you are, where you are, and why you’re awesome. This means a detailed conversation. We aren’t ads-in-the-box. One size does not fit all, and we tailor each plan to meet each uniquely good company.
WE CREATE A PROPOSAL
After the call, if we both feel like we’re a good fit, we’ll send you a detailed proposal outlining specifically what we’re offering to help you with and for how much. We’ll review it together via phone or videoconference.
YOU SAY “LET’S ROCK!”
Once you are ready to go, our team visits your market for a couple days for a one-time, upfront fee. We do a highly-refined diagnostic that helps us learn your values and story and uncover your blind spots and unleveraged assets. Listening over those two days, we usually think of anywhere between ten and fifty ideas that could help your business grow. (Our record is 86.)
WE CUSTOM-TAILOR A PLAN
Once we have a detailed analysis of your values, your market, your competition, and your company, we put together a plan to best accomplish what we outlined in our proposal that may include:
- Brand Strategy
- Campaign Tactics
- Message Development
- Media Planning
- Systems, policies and procedures to improve the customer experience.
(All these wells of goodness come from you. That is to say, you’ll be pleasantly surprised but not shocked by what we reveal … because we learned it all from you.)
You guys are our secret sauce, seriously!
– Donald Bailey, Epic Dental
WE WORK THE PLAN
We work proactively off an annual at-a-glance calendar of tactics to help accomplish our objectives. This annual plan always has margin built in to handle suprises or changes in the market or your company. You pay us a monthly fee to help you execute this marketing plan. We accept all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, & Discover) or we can pull direct from your bank account via ACH. You can release us – or us you – at anytime with thirty days notice. Our monthly fees have ranged from USD$1000 to $5000 depending on the complexity of what it is you’re hiring us to help you do.
HOW DO WE MAKE MORE MONEY?
Our monthly fee is adjusted annually by your growth. The only way for us to make more money is for you to make more money first.
