What is strategy?
Michael Porter, who wrote the book on competitive strategy, cites three elements of an effective strategy:
- It creates a unique and valuable position for your business.
- It establishes the tradeoffs you'll make as you compete. (You have to choose what not to do.)
- It creates a fit among your company's activities.
Whose job is strategy?
Your senior executives are responsible for the high-level strategy of your company. It's their job to answer the big questions:
- What business are you in?
- What markets do you serve?
- What value do you offer your customers?
Some companies pay millions to consulting firms like McKinsey & Co. to help sort out or rejuvenate their strategy. That's not the kind of help Redwell provides. We help with lower-level marketing strategy.
How Redwell can help
Specifically, Redwell helps with four areas of marketing strategy. In these areas, Redwell can offer solid value at reasonable cost:
- Value statements. Make your value statements clear to your target customers. Be sure they're consistent with what your customers value.
- Differentiation. Make sure your marketing messages emphasize how your company, products and services are different in ways that matter to your customers.
- Messaging and content. Bridge the gap between between the results you want and the way your customers want to buy from you.
- Website and digital marketing. Define a solid strategy for your website and your online marketing before you work with designs, writers or developers.
