Our marketing strategy outlines:

  • Customer segmentation 

  • Competitor analysis

  • Marketing timeline

  • Quantifiable goals

  • Key performance indicators (KPIs)

  • Prioritized to-do lists

DEEP-DIVE ASSESSMENT

Two full hours where you can get real-time feedback and ideas to help your business succeed. The best part? You only pay what you can.*

Our conversation covers:

  • Current and future marketing goals

  • Successes + pain points

  • Marketing assessment + review

  • Deep dive into current marketing efforts

  • On-the-spot feedback + ideas

EXECUTION + REPORTING

This is where we bring your customized marketing strategy to life by implementing one or more of the tactics proposed.

Our implementation can include:

*What the heck does “pay what you can” mean? 

 

It is truly a pay it forward model.  If you can't afford marketing support right now, this one is on us.  If you can afford marketing support, pay for whatever you feel comfortable with. Your support allows us to support others.

ABOUT 

US

Katy and Audrey first crossed paths over a decade ago on their college campus (Go Braves!). Since then, they have supervised one another, worked in tandem from different continents, and kept in touch as they pursued various professional opportunities.

In 2020, when the world was forced to pause and reflect, Audrey and Katy did the same thing. That is when they jumped at the opportunity to work together yet again. They shared the same giddy feeling about supporting others who are making a difference. 

 

Thus, Smallwave Marketing was born.
