A strategic plan
Chart your marketing roadmap.
A strategic plan ensures that you align your marketing efforts with your buyers, goals, and budget. Whether you already have some pieces of a strategy in place or need to start from the beginning, we help you build the foundation for marketing success.
It’s just smarter B2B marketing. Even better? You don’t need to stop what you’re doing now to develop a strategy for later. Maintain your current campaigns while we work in the background to make them that much more effective.
Our B2B strategy services include:
Personas and messaging
Really know your buyers.
Authentic B2B marketing means targeting the right audiences with meaningful messages that align to the business challenges they face every day. We can not only help you identify the persona groups you should focus on, but develop the messaging most likely to resonate with your buyers at the different stages of the buyer’s journey.
To get there, we dive into getting to know your existing customers and buyer trends via internal interviews, customer outreach, and available external data. For teams launching new products or entering new markets, we also offer extensive market research.
Engage your customer communities.
Even in a digital era, people still value word-of-mouth marketing. Influencer strategies elevate traditional WOM for the modern era, mobilizing influential analysts, industry experts and active community members to advocate for your company, products and brand.
We help clients identify and connect with the most effective influencers within their customer communities. And we create strategies that leverage their influencer connections and reach, building awareness and creating exponential buzz.
Content audits and gap analyses
Get the most from your content investments.
Our content audits are far more than a simple inventory. We take a deep dive into your existing content, assessing audience, relevance, potential for re-purposing, where it fits into the buyer’s journey, and more.
The result illustrates your content strengths, highlights your weaknesses, and allows you to better prioritize your content creation. A gap analysis takes the audit one step further by identifying holes, from missing persona-specific content to pieces lacking within individual campaigns.
Engage with your key accounts.
Account-based marketing (ABM) can yield some impressive results, but only if you do it right. By selectively targeting the right people within your prospects, you can boost campaign ROI and land your ideal customers.
UDG can partner with your sales team to develop your target accounts list, and then identify the right contacts. From there, we’ll create an ABM play that incorporates a combination of elements from personalized content to direct mail to focused events.
SEM and digital strategies
Broaden your audience reach.
If you create content without SEM, will anyone ever actually see it? (Probably not.) Modern marketers need an SEM strategy to ensure that their content is reaching their audiences.
We’ll identify the best ways to connect with your customers, building organic and paid search and social plans that integrate with your larger strategy.
Demand generation strategy
Start with a revenue-focused strategy.
Demand gen campaigns have one job: To generate meaningful conversations for your sales team. Is yours working? Take advantage of our demand gen expertise to build a strategy that’s integrated and consistent across all your marketing channels.
You’ll understand how your campaigns work together, the ROI of your investment in each channel, and what you can expect from your efforts. With this holistic view, you can ensure that your demand gen efforts deliver.
Campaign and nurture planning
Ensure campaign effectiveness.
Are your campaigns designed to meet your marketing goals? Do your nurtures align with your personas? Are you reaching everyone in your database? Are you getting a response rate that justifies your campaign investments? If your campaigns and nurtures aren’t rooted in a solid strategy, then answering these questions is tough.
Our team of marketing experts can develop a comprehensive approach for your campaigns, anchored to your marketing objectives and matched with your priorities. Your email campaigns may be good — but we can make them better.
