How we do it

Process is everything. Starling believes that an effective marketing program is made up of 8 components – each one essential to the next. Every component must be considered and is vital to the success of the marketing plan. If one component is out of balance the plan can become more expensive and less effective.

1. Learn About You

We will have a brief introduction to help us better understand your company’s mission, the purpose of your business. We will discuss your project, timeline, roles, and agree on how to work together effectively – it’s a chance for us to get to know each other and make sure we are on the same page.

2. Client Goals

Before we work with, you we will send you a brief questionnaire that will help us understand your business, goals, and customers. Your answers will help us develop a comprehensive and focused strategy for your project.

3. Strategy

We’ll go over your project with you to ensure that all the information you’ve given us is in alignment with our preliminary thoughts and ideas prior to conceptualization. After this, Starling will develop and present you with our strategy.

4. Message

Before any design or concepting is done, Starling will work with you to create new messaging that is catchy and to-the-point. We only have the attention of your customers for a couple seconds. It is important that your customer understands exactly who you are and what your offering. 

5. Design

This is where the fun starts as we explore your industry, look at competitors and find the best messaging. Based on our findings, will design unique visuals – a look-and-feel that is unique. You will be presented with our design concepts for feedback.

6. Launch

Off it goes! Once everything is perfect and you approve the final design, Starling will launch your marketing for the world to see. We will coordinate printing, distribution, direct mail, website programming, etc. – whatever your project requires.

7. Respond

Ok, your marketing is working, and the calls/requests are coming in. How are you responding? Is your response quick and effective or delayed and confusing? Starling will help you simplify and polish the process so you can engage your customers effectively.

8. Review

Starling wants you to be happy with the outcome! Were there any stumbling blocks along the way? We want your feedback, and we think it is important to provide you with ours as well.
