A website without a Game Plan is like a car without fuel.
Are you frustrated with your website for not generating enough enquiries or sales? Do you even have a website?
Are you spending too much money on traditional ads (newspapers & magazines etc) that just aren’t working? Do you even know if they’re working or not?
Are you wasting time or missing a big opportunity with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram & other social networks for your business or career? Either way, how can you be sure?
You need a Game Plan!
Before explaining what we mean by a Game Plan, let’s get a few things straight:
A traditional broadcast-only approach no longer works. You now need to figure out how to genuinely connect and engage with your clients, customers or fans. This applies to consultants, dentists and dance instructors, as much as it does to independent businesses, musicians, authors and artists.
It’s not about you. It’s about your audience and what drives them. Getting this right and acting accordingly is essential.
Not taking a digital-first approach risks irrelevance. Your audience now take to the internet when looking for solutions, culture or entertainment. They are highly connected and look to their networks for word-of-mouth information, connections and introductions.
We are now in a world where your audience expect to reach you through whatever device they happen to have to hand. And that’s increasingly a smartphone, or tablet.
Your audience expect transparency and responsiveness as the order of the day. If you don’t work that way, then your competitors will, they will win, and you will disappear into obscurity and irrelevance.
Two-way communication is the new advertising. Real influence & value comes from building a direct relationship with your audience. Are you going to take the initiative or give up before you even begin?
Putting Your Game Plan into action
The only thing worse than not having a Game Plan is failing to put one into action. We find that clients benefit hugely from follow-up assistance on a regular basis to help them implement their Game Plan. We will work with you to:
- Review progress toward your Goals: to see what’s working, what to do more of, and what to do less of.
- Look at trying new techniques & tools: these could be things that others in your industry (or a completely different industry) are having success with. The digital marketing world is developing very quickly, and so new opportunities are emerging all the time.
- Keep you focused, motivated, and on-track.
Depending on you, your team (if you have one) and your goals, anything from an hour to a day per month, spread over 6 to 12 months will work best for you.
What would it mean to you?
To have your audience (clients, customers, fans, patients, or patrons) come to you, instead of you having to chase them.
For your work to be truly appreciated and fully valued by your audience.
To retain more financial & creative control, as well as keeping more of your hard-earned cash by cutting out costly middle-men.
How it works
Private one-on-one access to Ben will help you:
- Put together and put into action a coherent Game Plan and easy-to-use tools so you can start growing your own profitable audience.
- Stay focussed, motivated & on-track by reviewing what’s working and deciding what needs to improve.
Ben can also review your existing marketing strategies & tools and suggest (often radical) improvements. He can also help you figure out a marketing campaign for a specific event like a product or book launch.
What happens next…
- You’ll have an initial chat with Ben over the phone or Skype to discover if and how he can help.
- We’ll schedule a series of sessions to understand your goals, where you are now, and find a way to get you there.
- We’ll agree a series of follow-up accountability sessions where we’ll review what’s working and what needs adjusting.
Depending on where you are and your budget, you’ll work with Ben over Skype, Google Hang-out, phone, or in-person in central London, or elsewhere.
Ben only takes on a small number of clients at a time so as to offer the very highest level of value. He also only works with clients who are genuinely committed to making the effort required to make a real difference.
We teach simple, proven techniques & easy-to-use tools to help you attract and keep more customers, clients or fans. It turns out that it’s not complicated at all, just not that obvious.
