Marketing: Message and Conveyance
Marketing has 2 parts, the message and its conveyance.
Your message is not "used cars" or "cheap used cars" or any other keyword. Don't confuse advertising with marketing.
Advertising broadcasts generic and therefore useless messages. Marketing messages differentiate YOUR BRAND and create brand-specific need.
Your message consists of WHO YOU ARE, WHY YOU DO WHAT YOU DO, and WHY NOBODY ELSE OFFERS WHAT YOU DO.
Don't go thinking you know the answers to these questions. If you knew the answers, you'd have customers lined up with their credit cards in hand. It's our job to craft this message. It's your job to fulfill the promise of that message.
Conveyance is NOT PPC, social media marketing, content marketing or SEO. Those are carts that requiring pulling. PPC is not a marketing strategy. Social media marketing is not a marketing strategy. Nor is content marketing or SEO. Those are tactics widely treated as strategies. Using tactics for lack of strategy is is not smart marketing. It puts you at the mercy of your media users.
Marketing strategy - you did notice the "brand marketing agency" part up there, didn't you? - clarifies the role of media. The proper role of media is serving your message because it's a serviceable message.
Most marketers spend 5% of the time identifying messages and 95% of the time pushing the cart, or conveying the message.
The correct ratio is 90% crafting the message, and 10% engineering a conveyance strategy which leaves a mark and incorrigibly infects consumer consciousness.
We're the Best, etc.
That's not true. We are not the best marketing agency. We are the only marketing agency. Exclude all the marketing agencies that confuse advertising with marketing, and V7 Inc is the only agency left standing.
If it matters, we have been marketing businesses large and small since 2003 as V7 Inc. We have over 3,000 satisfied clients, and turn down more business than we accept.
We work off a minimum retainer of 50,000 USD. That's the minimum. We may require a larger retainer for larger projects.
