We started to see our sales drop and realized we needed to start marketing beyond just referrals. We tried a few things but felt like we were wasting our time and money. After hiring Guide MKTG our sales increased and freed us up to concentrate on what we do best, roofing.

Here’s what we’ve learned in our collective 40 years of experience: Business leaders lack confidence in their marketing.

While you have invaluable insight into your organization, you aren’t a marketing expert. It’s no wonder you feel anxious about how you’re spending money and if you’re actually being heard. 

We know it good marketing takes both strategy and creativity. For years, we’ve successfully guided small businesses and non-profits through the maze of ever-increasing options, making sure they connect with customers.

Our process always involves getting to know your business, customers and goals. We do this over coffee, over the internet, through surveys, and our own research. Only once we understand your strengths and the customers’ needs, we can be strategic in how we connect you to them. We combine the strategy with creativity to help insure your message doesn’t get lost. Then we execute it.

Research + Strategy + Execution

This combination is effective because it’s customized and flexible. It generates much better results than the “random acts of marketing” that most businesses engage in.

We’re ready to guide you through your next marketing challenge. For many of our clients, that means we’re in an on-going relationship, where we repeat the strategy and execution cycle. This allows us to evaluate, adapt and adjust your marketing to fit the growth you experience and any changes in your industry or marketing trends. Effective marketing is never “set it and forget it.” Retainer relationships yield consistent results.

Maybe you have a specific need that could benefit from a strategic and creative approach. We can assist with one-time initiatives.

Sometimes clients are so daunted by where to start that they need to start with a roadmapping consult. We can determine and recommend a path forward, but stop short of fully executing it until you get your bearings and your budget ready. Consultation is a first step for many clients.

Whether we work under a retainer, per-project or as consultants, you’re the hero. Our work is as guides who create:

  • more confidence in how you make marketing decisions
  • more time for you to focus on your areas of strength
  • and more customers who know about and engage with you

Repeating this success pattern is what we love to do.
