Common Challenges

01.

Uncertainty about Marketing Direction

For small to mid-sized organizations, marketing and business planning often fails to get the attention needed to achieve the organization’s goals. Brand Machine from Web Geeks is a time-tested, proprietary program that identifies key aspects of your organization to produce both a brand guide and a marketing plan. We also provide the analytical feedback needed to measure the impact of marketing activities.

02.

Building an Effective Marketing Platform

Most organizations recognize the central role of a website in their marketing stack, but they often come up short in creating an engaging presentation of their brand. Web Geeks has the experience and capability to build an attractive, purpose-driven website as well as other marketing assets. From social media profiles and business directory listings to newsletters and videography, you’ll impress audiences and drive action across your entire marketing platform.

03.

Effectively Communicating Brand Story

Knowing what you want to say and then delivering that message to the right people at the right time can be very challenging. Web Geeks, while working from a strategic plan, will develop customized marketing campaigns utilizing digital media (paid ads, SEO, social media, video, email, advanced content) and more traditional forms of advertising to drive engagement with your brand. Let’s compel the targeted audience to take action.

04.

Measuring Your Marketing Impact

Is your marketing budget being spent effectively? Are the campaign activities producing results? Are the corporate goals and the marketing activities in sync? Without good data and actionable feedback, how can your organization maximize its marketing activities? Web Geeks closes the circle with marketing data for every activity and our detailed reports, client meetings and on-going collaboration. We get the best out of your marketing budget.
