During the Foundation phase, we build your digital marketing plan on solid rock, as God intended.
It usually takes between one week to one month of deep work and research to get through the full Foundation phase and its corresponding steps: Onboarding, Tracking, Analysis, and Strategy. This step is fundamental in that it allows us to get our minds wrapped around the digital strategy we’ll use to achieve the results you’re looking for. It’s not the most glamorous step of the process, but it’s arguably the most important. We all know what happens when you build your house upon the sand. Your digital marketing strategy is no different.
Onboarding: We work with you to set up all the accounts and services we’ll need to properly run your digital marketing campaign.
Tracking: We set up tracking on your website so you can see how many leads and sales it generates. Then you can measure the results of everything we do. Remember, it’s all about trackable value.
Analysis: We research your industry, competition, customers, and past performance to better understand your business and set measurable goals.
Strategy: Now that we can see your business and website performance clearly, we make specific plans for trackable growth. At the end of the Foundation phase, we’ll send you a Digital Marketing Strategy Report custom built for your business. It outlines what we’ve learned and how we plan to grow your business moving forward.
This isn’t the Field of Dreams. Just because you build a website or create a Facebook business page doesn’t mean anyone’s coming to see it. We’ve got to get the word out!
Some established businesses spend years building their brand but can’t be found on the internet. Not our clients. We make sure you get seen where you should be seen by those who need to see you!
One of the best ways to do just that is to create content that showcases your services, products, and the daily grind of running your business.
Benjamin Franklin would purposely let one of his wheels squeak on his wheelbarrow so everyone would notice how hard he was working. We’ve got more advanced technology than ole Ben, but he was on to something.
Awareness and reputation are important, and we are here to broadcast your business’ narrative to target audiences that show the most promise of becoming customers. Digital marketing allows you to toot your own horn and reap a harvest of more customers in the process. It’s a win-win, honestly. You and your team work hard, so why not brag a little bit?
The Structure phase is all about connecting your digital reputation to your physical reputation by writing blog posts, social media posts, and increasing reviews.
Word-of-mouth drives a lot of business. Once they hear about you, most people look up your business online before ever contacting you. We help you make the best first impression by establishing compelling website content, email marketing, social media accounts, and reviews. With a strong, healthy web presence in place, everything we do next is guaranteed to be far more effective.
Now for the fun part: Growth! With an optimized website, a connection to your customers, and a growing reputation, we’re ready to build your growth marketing funnel.
While you sleep, the system we build will reach out to cold prospects, build awareness, earn trust, and generate qualified leads.
If you sell products or services directly on your website, we make sure you can track sales and build a loyal customer base.
Since every dollar you spend on digital marketing will now be a trackable investment in the growth of your company, we can grow as much as you want from here. The sky (well, and your budget) is the limit.
We LOVE Our Clients
And they LOVE us
As far as a company to do business with, The Nine is one of the best that we have ever dealt with. Its practice has always been to go above and beyond our needs. We are currently working on a new site and their experience and expertise that they have developed over the past decade since working with us has been amazing. The CMS, Caboose, and their online calendaring system is the best we have seen by far. They maintain a close communication with us and keep our site current. In addition, The Nine’s customer relations have always provided excellent service. Based on our experience for over a decade, any organization looking for the best working relationship with a digital agency should be very excited about the opportunity to work with such a motivated and forward thinking agency.
