The Foundational Process

collaborate with your team + review your roadmap


begin execution of your roadmap


Even small, everyday challenges can keep you from maximizing your success without a sustainable, strategic plan. Many business owners and marketing teams often forget to consider everyday challenges as they struggle to identify their path for growth.

Before you develop a roadmap, you need to have a clear picture of where your organization sits today. Your journey through the evaluation portion of developing a custom roadmap begins with an extensive assessment with a comprehensive set of questions and thought exercises.

This is the first step to building your custom redMAP. This assessment provides an understanding of your current marketing foundation and the gaps that may exist within it. Once you’ve submitted your evaluation, our team will do the rest to create a custom roadmap for you that is actionable and easy to understand.


Within 48 hours of receiving your submission, our team of experts (we call them redGUIDES) reviews your responses and creates a custom roadmap complete with recommendations and next steps to building your marketing foundation.

Once you receive your custom roadmap, you can begin to engage with your key stakeholders and internal team to review the goals and objectives we’ve recommended for your organization. You will work together (or solo perhaps) to execute on your strengths, work to resolve weaknesses, determine the best opportunities, and where you can eliminate threats.

Armed with this final custom redMAP, you’ll be able to:

  • Align your brand with your purpose, vision and mission.
  • Go after opportunities strategically and understand how to address threats to your growth.
  • Provide a foundational marketing plan to agencies, freelancers, and team members for seamless execution.


Now with your custom redMAP, you are ready to start the work that will take you to your marketing goals. Here are the four main areas you’ll want to focus on when building your marketing foundation:


Branding is what people say about you when you are not present. A clear and concise story and the way in which you deliver that message are integral to the success of your marketing. A strong brand identity helps differentiate you from your competitors and can positively impact your customers’ purchasing decisions.

Online Presence:

Having an online presence—a website—provides a landing place for current and potential customers to learn more about you, reach out to you and buy from you. And when you understand your customers’ goals and buying behaviors, you can create custom online experiences.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM):

Manage all your customer data in one central location to keep your sales and marketing enablement efforts organized. You’ll increase your bottom line while committing to use the information to better serve your customer. CRM also provides a platform for all your inbound and outbound marketing efforts.

Email Marketing:

This is a cost-effective, targeted, and data driven marketing tactic that gives recipients the information they want. It’s a great tool to use to engage with your customers, build brand awareness and strengthen trust and loyalty.
