You need to be thinking & talking to me about your business in terms of business model, niche, financials, competitors & reach alongside your products and/or services and what exactly are your short/medium/long term goals, challenges, objectives and ambitions.
The status of domain names (if any), any existing website and hosting presence alongside the use of paid advertising, email marketing and social channels needs to be completely understood alongside how the sales process is carried out across the business and what is current ROI (return on investment) - if known.
Ultimately the objective of any digital marketing strategy session is to get you really thinking about who you are, where you are presently & what you want to achieve i.e. what direction do you want to go in so we can determine the best way to accelerate business growth and identify the best actions required within the marketing & sales funnel to achieve rapid improvement.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Realising an acceptable R.O.I (Return on Investment) on any digital investment is ultimately what's important for any growth-seeking small business.
At the outset of working with me, we will agree upon a set of K.P.I.'s to effectively measure the digital marketing & selling effort - over time - while conducting regular performance reviews i.e. quarterly or monthly meetups.
K.P.I.'s or Key Performance Indicators are simply any agreed measurement method to determine whether or not the digital marketing & selling effort is producing the results we would have discussed at the outset etc.
When your K.P.I.'s are agreed upon we need to set up a measurement program (web analytics) to gather data, analyse it and adjust the sales funnel to achieve improved results over time.
