As a marketing strategy agency, we map the path to your goals

It’s like having a marketing strategy GPS

The difference between a marketing plan and a marketing strategy is the difference between almost there and success. As a marketing strategy agency, McDill believes starting at the beginning is the best way to ensure you arrive at profitable results. Our Milwaukee-based team maps this approach to your goals, helping you set your direction to increase leads, sales and revenues.


Understand your marketing position with a communications audit

“You are here” is the best starting point for a full-powered marketing strategy. McDill reviews your website, digital marketing analytics and other communications to understand your brand positioning, assess strengths and find opportunities. We also look at how competitors communicate with your target market, whether it’s consumer or B2B.

Distill your most important points into strategic marketing messages

Our content development experts work with you to build the foundation for your global marketing strategy: key messages for each target audience —customers, prospects, employees, partners, investors. Much like our branding agency work, this is a fascinating process of determining who you are and who you want to be. The resulting key messages serve as the touchstone for every communication, from a quick email to a full-length webinar.

Set your direction with appropriate marketing tactics

McDill listens to your ideas and adds our own, often suggesting tactics you may not have considered—bringing you the full benefit of our experience working with global businesses on digital media, print, email and other marketing communications. We also help plan the rollout of your marketing strategy, establishing timelines and editorial calendars to keep all participants advancing toward your goal, on time and within budget.
