Strategy

•

Where are you going as a business? Why should a customer buy from you? How do you make money? What are leading indicators of change? What are the investments that drive these indicators? Given an initial set of resources, what investments do you propose to start with? Review and optimize on a monthly basis

Clarify your brand benefits and point of difference

Points-of-parity/points-of-difference
These can be utilised in the positioning (marketing) of a brand for competitive advantage via brand/product. In essence: Points-of-difference (PODs) – Attributes or benefits consumers strongly associate with a brand, positively evaluate and believe they could not find to the same extent with a competing brand i.e. points where you are claiming superiority or exclusiveness over other products in the category. Points-of-parity (POPs) – Associations that are not necessarily unique to the brand but may be shared by other brands i.e. where you can at least match the competitors claimed benefits.

How We’re Different
THE DIGITAL SCIENTISTS APPROACH

•

We’re a service company.
We donʼt earn a commission on anything we do. We donʼt charge based on a percentage of media placed. If a vendor provides a refund or discount, it is passed straight on to you.

•

Fair and clear rates.
Our hourly rates are based on the three categories of work we do: Marketing, Design & Development, and Analytics & Optimization. We provide our clients a great value.

•

We’re a pay-by-the-drink company and can handle projects of all sizes.
Unlike most agencies, we work on projects of all sizes. We can handle all of your marketing efforts or just a few pieces. Sometimes the smartest approaches come from our experience with small clients or startups.

•

Focused on... results
We are completely focused on generating a return on your investment in digital marketing. Even if your goal is building brand preference compared to driving specific sales, we always align our efforts to what you want to accomplish.

How We’re Different
THE DIGITAL SCIENTISTS APPROACH

•

We work on a weekly schedule.
We have a no-nonsense, disciplined approach to project management. Our weekly updates keep everyone informed of accomplishments, upcoming tasks, upcoming milestones, budget and schedule.

•

We’re a “butts-in-seats” company - not a collection of contractors.
We have marketers, designers, and developers working elbow to elbow.  From iPhone apps to analytics to marketing strategy – we have the talent in-house and ready to go. If we donʼt, weʼll tell you and work toward a specific solution.

•

We’re interested in the numbers, not awards.
Whether itʼs Clios or Webbys, we just donʼt care about awards, unless theyʼre in service to achieving a business objective. Weʼre marketers first, interested in business results.

•

We create a sustainable, engaging environment for clients and employees
We believe that happy, non-commuting employees make for better results for our clients (and for the environment). Also, we invest in our community to make it a better place for everyone.
