Integrated Marketing Programs – multi-channel, multi-tactic

McCarthy & King Marketing creates and implements integrated marketing programs for business and non-profits.  Our programs are designed to introduce direct response strategy and creative to all marketing – both online and offline – as well as each contact point in sales process.    


Marketing for the sales process

Most organizations can’t afford to rely on a single marketing activity.

They integrate a mix of marketing activities to support various stages in the sales process.

This might include direct mail, advertising, search marketing or public speaking to generate the initial leads, then the website or landing pages to convert those leads, followed up by a lead nurturing program using email, phone and personal selling.

Our integrated marketing program makes it work together and makes it all measurable.

 

Cross-channel integrated marketing

McCarthy & King Marketing uses direct response creative and measurable marketing strategies with a variety of marketing channels.

Using your website as the centerpiece, we develop a comprehensive program that utilizes a combination of marketing activities – all of which feed into the website.  These marketing activities may include:

  • direct mail
  • email marketing
  • print advertising
  • online advertising
  • search advertising
  • landing pages

Which activities you use will depend on your organization, but we can help you bring them together into one cohesive sales process.

 

One Response Funnel – many marketing channels

sales lead funnelNo matter how many marketing channels you are using, you want to bring all of your leads into one Response Funnel.

Your Response Funnel should capture, qualify and process your leads – automatically.

And each lead should be tracked to its source and analyzed on a cost-per-lead basis.

 

Strategy and execution

Integrated Measurable Marketing is a practical, hands-on service that combines strategic planning with the actual execution of those plans.

As an initial phase, we will help you map out a marketing plan that fits with your sales operation.  We will develop strategies, budgets and measurement criteria for each step in your sales process.

But our work doesn’t end there.  We will work with you to implement every one of your marketing activities.  We will bring in our team of graphic designers, web specialists, video producers, printers and others to get your projects out the door.

If you are already working with some service providers, that’s okay.  We can work them too.

 

New programs and program modifications

We can work with you whether you are starting a new marketing program or looking for ways to improve your existing program.

If it’s a new program, we believe in taking a walk-before-you-run approach to be sure we are heading the right direction.   We like to test various marketing activities and components before we have you invest too much.

If you have an existing program, we will use your current program results as our benchmark for comparison.  We will then plan and develop new programs to be measured against what you are currently doing.
