Marketing Strategy + Implementation Calendar
It all really should start here. Firefly Strategies is a strong proponent of planning. Great communication starts with a plan. Marketing without planning is like speaking without thinking. You could turn a lot of people off, confuse them, and worst you can end up hurting them and yourself. Planning and then creating a detailed action calendar is the key to successful and pain-free communications and marketing. Plus, marketing is measureable ONLY when you start from a plan. We will create a thorough marketing plan that removes chaotic, complicated and confusing tactics and help you replace them with simple, easy and measureable ones. You'll know exactly when, where, how to do your marketing.
