Marketing Identity from Not Really Rocket Science is understanding your story and your audience.

Know your audience. Know your story.

Marketing Identity

Knowing your unique story and who cares about hearing it is fundamental to creating the right relationships with your customers. Get this right and every other thing you’ll do in marketing becomes easier, better positioning you for high performance. Creating your Marketing Identity will help you uncover your ideal customer, how what you’re offering matters to them and why, and what to do about it. This strategic anchor helps develop business transformation on how marketing, sales and leadership see new possibilities.

Influence. Support. Lead.

Content Strategy

The modern marketing engine is built to pull people into a relationship and attract and nurture prospects and customers with thoughtful, insightful content. Words, pictures, videos, webinars, social media posts, podcasts – each one an opportunity to reach someone new, demonstrate your authority or expertise, and create relationships. Thinking strategically about content means delivering exactly the right content to the right people at the right times for the right reasons. Every marketing decision should be connected to a specific purpose and intended outcome for both your brand and your potential customer. A content strategy informs everything from what goes on your website to your next blog post to how you’re using social media and video.

Content Strategy from Not Really Rocket Science is sharing the right content at the right times to the right people for the right reasons.
Not Really Rocket Science designs high performance websites that are transformational, not informational.

“Oh hey, yeah, I checked out your website.”

Web Experience

The first thing any prospect will do who’s even a little bit interested in you is check out your website, and your first impression has to deliver confidence, credibility, and the right emotional connection. Most businesses have a website that exists – yours needs to perform. Your website must reflect your brand, attract customers, and qualify and generate leads – all while giving you the insights and analytics to read how it’s performing so you know where to take smart business action. The modern website is mobile first, content-driven, helps visitors with the mission they’re on in their buying journey, and is as well designed and beautiful as it is purposeful and useful.

Individualize the experience.

Personalization Through Automation

As visitors and prospects engage with you and your content, it’s crucial to strengthen relationships and sales opportunities with a personalized, customized approach. Marketing automation integrates the different ways people interact and engage with you so you can customize pathways that are tailored to their unique behaviors. Deep analytics reveal areas to focus on so you can make smart business and marketing decisions. Your sales teams can be equipped with valuable intelligence about prospects and their interests and activities, dramatically improving sales potential.

Marketing Automation from Not Really Rocket Science allows your website and digital marketing to be smarter, more personalized, and more reactive to your audience.
Marketing Strategy from Not Really Rocket Science is results-driven, based on measurements, analytics, and key performance indicators.

You know what drives more sales? More sales.

Marketing Strategy

How your business leadership, sales and marketing teams work together is crucial to reaching your prospects and customer. Your marketing strategy is how you’ll tell your story, and this goes beyond thinking about activities like advertising, social media posts or email lists. To be strategic your marketing should connect to sales and revenue goals, amplify your sales story and adopt proactive practices to drive your ability to capture new opportunities.
