What does the STING Report include?

Your STING Report starts with an in-depth discovery meeting with our team. We will go through a thorough question session, of course with coffee, to ensure we completely understand what you do, who you are, and what is important to you.

Then we go to work. Through our own creative genius (or deep brainstorming) sessions we construct the carefully and incredibly specialized marketing plan, just for you.

Your Marketing Plan will include:

Who are you? What do you do? Why do you do it?

marketing goals, marketing, plan, business, marketing planWhat is your goal? Until you can clearly communicate why you are in business, you can’t figure out what makes you different, what value you provide, or really anything else. You have to understand the reason why you provide your products or services to understand how you will use them to solve problems for others.

This is step 1 and through a thorough conversation we will help you to identify the passion and purpose behind what you do every day.

Anyone can describe the benefits of their products or services. What sets your marketing apart and creates the desire for someone to purchase is conveying your value.

No one cares what your actual product is. What matters to your new customer is how your product is going to solve a problem they have. We will help you to understand the actual problems you are solving and the value that creates for the consumer. Once we know this we can start working on your differentiation and unique selling proposition.

That’s a valid question. Information is only as useful as how it is used. You must understand how implementing your marketing plan lines up with accomplishing your business plan. Once you can understand how the two work together, you have the ability to execute. You can use the roadmap of your marketing plan to accomplish your goals, which allows you to fulfill your vision. You need all 3 to have success in business; Vision, Goals, and a Plan.

You can’t create a military strategy without including the enemy in your plans. Nor can you plan your marketing without understanding who your competitors are, how they are marketing, and how they are differentiating themselves from you.

It is impossible to establish your differentiation analysis and to determine your Unique Selling Proposition without understanding your competitors, and in detail.

usp, differentiation, unique selling proposition, segmentationArguably the most neglected and undervalued questions in business. So many businesses will tell us “CUSTOMER SERVICE!”, when asked what makes them better than their competitors. Guess what? YOU. ARE. WRONG. You have to know what makes your business different from every single competitor in your market. You have to understand with depth what makes you UNIQUE.

Your Unique Selling Proposition

Then, once you actually know what your Unique Selling Proposition is, you have to market it until the cows come home. It should be in your slogan, in your mission, and in your Cheerios. You need to eat, breathe, and smell your USP. Everyone should know it because it’s all they should hear. This is what your business and your marketing is based on. This is why your customers buy from you over another.

Don’t worry, our team is ready to help you identify and market the most important piece of information about your business.
