XEN Annual Marketing Review (AMR)

 

We meet with you to discuss your marketing plans for the year. We use a simple checklist doc (take a copy of the example doc here) to go through each of the following areas:

Business Goals

xen amr docIn very high level terms, we discuss your business goals for the year ahead eg:

  • Growth plans and % goals
  • New locations
  • New products
  • New services
  • New audiences

Campaigns

We chat through general campaign ideas you have in mind for the year ahead.
They can be very general at this stage eg:

  • ‘awareness campaign to promote our new XXX product’ or
  • ‘campaign to introduce us to a new audience/market of YYY’ or
  • ‘new brand unveiling’ or
  • ‘retention campaign to grow revenue per existing customer’, etc

Content Strategy

In this section we want to review:

Audiences/Personas
(eg Are your personas up-to-date)

Topics
( egAre there new content approaches you’d like to discuss and plan for the year)

Formats
( eg Are there new formats you’d like to work on eg video, podcast, infographic, etc)

Funnels

Together we'll chat through what stages of the lifecycle are working well and what needs work.
(ie how do we best ‘solve for the problem’?)
Example: do you have a traffic problem? Do you have a leads problem? Do you have a sales problem?

Reporting

Are your current reports and dashboards delivering the visibility you need?
(What extra reporting is required - what can be removed)

Channels

We'll review your promotion channels (eg advertising, social, partner sites) to clarify the focus.

As part of this we'll discuss which channels to focus on, which to reduce, and which new ones to test.

Budgets

Finally we get a sense of your top level budgets (approx monthly) for:

  • Strategy and planning
  • Content creation
  • Campaign promotion (ad platforms, social)

Another happy client LG Energy

Impressed with XEN’s combination of strategic, technical and implementation skills

We initially engaged XEN to assist LG Solar & Energy to improve our lgenergy website SEO, however the project quickly grew to include strategy across paid and social channels as well, with a focus on driving leads.

With the site now gaining 1100 visits per day and providing more than 1200 new leads per month, the project has been a great success.

It has been a vital part of our 35% sales growth , compared to last year.

We've been impressed with XEN's combination of strategic, technical and implementation skills, and have now introduced them into other divisions across LG.
