Strategic Messaging That Gets Results

Three Circles MarketingFull-stack marketing follows the holistic principle of  Marketing Performance = Brand Effect + Execution Effect. Full-stack marketing recognizes that different marketing strategies can have different future values over the planning horizon called the “Strategy Effect©,” which is a combination of the “Brand Effect©” and the “Execution Effect©.”  Full-stack marketing realizes that marketing performance is the result of both the two effects. This is why we try to obtain a holistic understanding of a business’ market, customers, competitors, and brand to bring both corporate strategy and marketing strategy together in a digital campaign for a “Planning Effect.”

In the initial discovery meeting, we meet with our clients to discuss the project’s scope of work, establish timelines, and gather all documents necessary to start the project. Our projects are divided into three phases – thus the name Three Circles Marketing.

While every company’s problems are unique, all TCM’s projects use a phased approach to customize the solution – Strategic Understanding, Omnichannel Marketing, and Financial Results. Each phase is made up of individual tasks for designing a digital marketing program. Projects can include all or parts of one or all three phases depending on the scope of work.

We often find that businesses come to us with a “presenting problem” when the root cause of the problem is something different. TCM will first recommend using the “Planning Effect” framework to uncover strategic reasons for the problem before hypothesizing executable solutions.

The scope of work for most projects involves acquiring and/or accessing existing data for analysis and insights, using NDAs if necessary, prioritizing and testing hypothesized solutions, and designing digital marketing programs with actionable performance metrics. Regularly scheduled work sessions and executive presentations are made covering the progress to date, gaining client approval or feedback, and going over specific action plans for the next phase of the project.
