What role does Lighthouse play in Mobile-First web design?

Every slamdunkmarketing website starts with a plan.

Step One

Vision

Include in any Marketing Plan your company’s vision / mission statement. Your vision statement should be clear, concise and serve as a touch point serving as the measure by which to rate all interactions. Think of your vision statement as your company’s “Golden Rule.”

Step Two
Core Values

Core Values are the foundation on which your company builds the team and tools to achieve its vision statement. Core Values serve as guidelines to keep your company on track to living up to/achieving its vision statement.

Step Three
SWOT Analysis

A SWOT Analysis (Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities and Threats) looks at both internal and external factors that influence current and future success. This is a time to honestly assess your customers, industry, competition, community and your team.

Step Four

Business Objectives

Business Objectives are both short-term and long-term goals providing the stepping stones to achieving your company's strategic goals. Each Business Objective needs support from one or more programs and/or initiatives that have measurable goals and clear timeline.

Step Five

Strategy

Your Marketing Plan creates the framework by which you’ll market your products and services to your various target audiences. The plan includes positioning, pricing strategies, marketing vehicles, training, budget, schedule, expectations and methods of evaluation.

Step Six

Assignments

Make an honest assessment of your team’s availability and skillset to determine if your company has the internal resources to implement your marketing plan. If part or all is to be outsourced, utilize Request for Proposals (RFPs) to select any necessary vendors.

Step Seven

Implementation

Strategic implementation of your marketing plan includes A B Testing to fine tune messaging, design and applications before a full-scale launch. A staged launch of your campaign gives you additional opportunities to make additional tweaks based on real-time results.

Step Eight

Evaluation

Evaluation begins immediately following the first implementation of each marketing vehicle. Tracking engagement via clicks, phone calls, visitors, likes, followers and sales are among key marketing metrics that help you begin to determine your marketing return on investment (ROI).
