WHY WE AUDIT YOUR ACCOUNT
We want to know we can maximise your success from the get-go!
Completing an audit of a company's marketing account before taking it over offers several valuable benefits for both the marketing agency and the client:
Informed Strategy: An audit provides our team with a deep understanding of the current state of your marketing account. This knowledge is crucial for developing a tailored and effective marketing strategy.
Identify Strengths and Weaknesses: The audit reveals what's working well and what needs improvement in the current marketing efforts. This information helps us to focus on optimising your strengths and addressing weaknesses.
Cost Efficiency: By identifying inefficient spending or redundant campaigns, we can eliminate waste and allocate the budget more effectively.
Better Targeting: Audits often reveal insights into the target audience. This information can be used to refine audience targeting for more precise marketing campaigns.
Content Assessment: The audit assesses the quality and relevance of existing content. This helps us to determine if content needs to be refreshed, optimised, or replaced.
Competitor Insights: Studying competitors' strategies and performance in the audit can uncover opportunities for gaining a competitive edge.
Technology and Tools Evaluation: The audit reviews the marketing technology stack. It helps us to understand which tools are in use, their effectiveness, and whether any upgrades or changes are needed.
Risk Assessment: The audit can identify compliance issues, potential legal risks, or any practices that could harm the brand's reputation. Addressing these concerns proactively is essential.
Benchmarking: The audit establishes a baseline for performance metrics. This allows us to measure improvements over time accurately.
Client Expectation Alignment: We want to ensure that we have a shared understanding with you of the current situation and your goals for the marketing campaign.
Transparency: An audit demonstrates our commitment to transparency and data-driven decision-making.
Prioritisation: Not all aspects of a marketing account may need immediate attention. Our audits help us to discuss with you where to prioritise tasks based on their impact and urgency.
Customised Solutions: Armed with the findings from the audit, we can provide customised solutions and recommendations that directly address your unique challenges and opportunities.
"We place a strong emphasis on forging partnerships with businesses that share our core values and principles. Our commitment to aligning our agency with your brand is equally as important as ensuring your brand is the right fit for our model."
Overall, a thorough audit is a critical first step in establishing a successful partnership between US and YOU!
It sets the stage for data-driven, strategic marketing efforts that are more likely to achieve the desired results.
