Digital Marketing Process
5 PHASES FOCUSED ON RESULTS
Define Market Fit
Before we focus on generating traffic, we need to be clear on what it is your offer and who your audience is. This will ensure your offering(s) match your audience, provide the foundation for advertising creatives that resonate with your audience, and lay the framework of your Customer Journey – how digital marketing will move your propects to customers
- Define your Products/Services and elaborate on how each offering moves customers from a “Before” state to an “After” state. Customers don’t actually want a product or service… they want an outcome, and this phase clarifies that.
- Define your Audience Personas. Who is your audience? Why do they need you? How do you help them? What objections may you need to overcome.
- The output of this phase can be used in advertising creatives and marketing materials during the different stages of the Customer Journey.
Mapping The Customer Journey
The Customer Journey (similar to a sales funnel) maps out how different offers convert prospects into leads, and then leads into customers. It establishes a repeatable and coordinated strategic framework for different digital marketing tactics to operate within. It allows us to establish performance metrics that actively assess the overall performance of any campaign including ROI.

- Your Customer Journey is mapped, and when it comes time to implement different digital marketing tactics, we simply look at your Customer Journey and implement whichever tactic is needed for a particular phase.
- Lastly, we create funnel simulations that model the potential profit of any sales or marketing funnel so that we can both assess a marketing campaign’s potential viability before any money is invested.
