Growth Blueprint – Develop a Strategy that is as Unique as Your Business
OneIMS Globe

Our Proven B2B Growth Marketing Solution

Taking the guesswork out of customer acquisition and growing businesses at scale

The Challenge

Businesses often self-diagnose their conditions, prescribe their own medications, and then try to find a consultancy to fix the symptoms. The problem is that the prescriptions they write only address the symptoms, not the root cause.

From what we’ve seen after 15+ years of working with a variety of businesses, most B2B organizations struggle with:

  • Brand Awareness
  • Lead Generation
  • Customer Acquisition
  • Customer Retention

Any of that sounds familiar? Here’s what you can do about it.

The Solution

  • Static, deliverable-based tactics like SEO, PPC, Social Media, Email Marketing, etc. can be effective on their own, but they don’t address the root of the issue. After all, the reason you are investing in marketing is to build awareness around your brand, generate new opportunities for your business, and increase your revenue. You do not invest in marketing for keyword rankings, cheap clicks, or increases in open rates.
  • Your ideal customers are already looking for you. You just need to get in front of them. Every organization is unique, every sales process is unique, so your marketing strategy must be unique, too. Gaining a complete understanding of your customer’s decision-making process, our team of experts will work alongside you to align your marketing strategy with your buyer’s journey.

Growth Formula Framework

Acquisition + Retention = Growth

The overarching growth strategy for any business is to acquire new business and retain existing business. This simple equation of Acquisition + Retention leads to Growth. To feed that formula, businesses need to address opportunities and gaps in their current marketing and sales arsenal, which may include:

  • Creating demand for their services or products
  • Capturing demand for their services or products
  • Managing and nurturing leads to customers
  • Managing and nurturing existing customers for retention and growth

The Demand Pyramid

Creating a sustainable and repeatable marketing strategy requires focusing on key areas that yield growth:

Create Brand Awareness & Generate Demand

Reach & Educate 97% of Out-of-Market Buyers

If you are in an established segment, at any given moment, only about 1 to 3% of the total addressable market is in-market to buy. The other 97% may or may not be aware of their problem or how to articulate it. It is therefore imperative that you introduce your company and solutions to the new potential buyers within your total addressable market. To do this, educate the buyer about the problem, the solution, and your organization so that they can make an informed decision.

Capture Demand

Lead Generation - Capture the 1 to 3% of In-Market Buyers

Right place, right time. If you are in an established market with existing demand for your products or services, you can capitalize on it by attracting the attention of your in-market buyers. When potential customers are trying to find a solution to their problem, be found for what you have to offer. It’s your job to stay at the top of their minds if you want to capture the existing demand.

Manage & Nurture

Convert Leads & Delight Customers

It is estimated that 98% of website visitors do not take any action. Out of that 2% who take action, 79% never convert into sales. The main reason for this is the lack of lead nurturing. You must segment and nurture prospects and customers with relevant and valuable content.

To keep your audience engaged, nurture them with omnichannel campaigns throughout the entire sales process and beyond. To encourage your customers to become brand advocates, create campaigns that delight them.

Buyer Persona Development

Before developing a marketing strategy, we must first understand and define your ideal customer profile. These buyer personas will be the basis of your messaging and approach from here on out.

Industry Analysis

Once we understand who we are targeting, we need to thoroughly analyze your current market position. This involves an audit of your current marketing efforts, competitor research, and product/service review.

Buyer’s Journey Review

The next step is to map out the decision-making process of your new buyer personas and begin to understand strategic marketing efforts that align with the sales process.

Goal Setting

Results-oriented marketing revolves around creating and meeting SMART goals. Every strategy implemented thereafter will be tied to reaching these defined goals.

Campaign Planning

Now that we know your target market, understand your competition, and have developed key objectives that are tied to revenue goals, it’s time for a plan of action to set things in motion. This involves marketing channel selection, technology recommendations, budget allocation recommendations, and a complete list of action items for the upcoming marketing sprints.

Step 2:

Growth Blueprint Execution
