Strategic Planning Process Columbus Ohio

Do you want a business that thrives?

If you answered yes, your company could benefit from having a strategic plan. Strategic planning is developing a comprehensive strategy to achieve your business objectives. It helps you identify strengths and weaknesses, set realistic goals and a unified message, and create a roadmap for success.

Losing focus is so easy and yet so costly.

Without a well-crafted strategic plan, your company may be slow to respond to changes in the marketplace, miss out on opportunities, struggle to attract top talent, and lose focus on what’s truly important to your customers and your own bottom line.

Failure is often the price companies pay for not having a focused, strategic plan.

The four pillars of ROI success are analyzing, refining, strategizing, and measuring. As a component of your well-informed strategic plan, every aspect of ROI is an important measure of success as we work with you to build your brand, convert visitors to devoted customers, and contribute to your long-term success.

The Process to Getting Started is Simple

At Social Firm, we like to keep it simple. The less confusion, the better. The same goes for your business and customers.

Step One

Discovery & Research

During this phase, we gather information about your company, its environment, and its pain points, including talking to principal stakeholders, reading reports, and researching the market.

Step Two

Assessment

What is your company’s personality, resources, and assets, and how are they being developed and allocated? Does your team, from the C-Suite to the mailroom, share the same values and goals? Are they apparent to your customers through consistent marketing collateral and messaging?

Step Three

Recommendations

Based on the research and resource assessment, we develop a series of recommendations in an actionable plan for feedback and approval, along with any updated cost estimates. We determine what key assets to refresh or create, from website, brand guidelines, and logos to collateral, messaging, and media mix.

Step Four

Implementation & Measurement

We launch your campaign and track its progress with sophisticated analytics tools that measure conversions and KPIs to ensure continued marketing success.

A Going Concern Now Going, Going, Gone

It’s estimated that nearly 600,000 businesses fold each year. Your business can quickly go from being a “going concern” to going, going, gone. Without a comprehensive strategic plan informing your decisions, you’re likely to waste time and money, have no way to set and measure goals, motivate your team, connect with customers, and remain in business.

Working with the Social Firm team on this project was seamless. We worked mostly with Brandon and he somehow knew what we wanted even before we ourselves knew. We couldn’t be more satisfied with the completed project. We will definitely be using their services again in the future.
