Retainer Relationships

Mutual success stems from a committed relationship and clear objectives.

Consulting Retainers

For individuals, leadership teams, or marketing teams, my focus in a consulting relationship is individual growth and progress towards mutually agreed upon marketing objectives. I believe that marketing touches everything you do in business and has the most profound effects on the health of an organization.

Typical clients include:

  • Business Owners or Executives
  • Leadership Teams
  • Marketing Leaders
  • Marketing Teams

The Consulting Process

  1. Assessment - I start by interviewing key leaders, employees, and customers to acquire a broad picture of your company’s current marketing practices. Then, I do a competitive landscape analysis to determine where market opportunities exist. Learn more about available assessments here.
  1. Mutually Agreed Upon Objectives  - I present my recommended plan of action. With your feedback we agree to objectives that are realistic and measurable.
  2. Regular Meetings - I'll help you develop into a confident marketing leader, encouraging you, challenging you, and providing friendly accountability.

By working together you'll have a clear path forward, you'll get your team pulling the rope in the same direction, and you'll see measurable progress towards your objectives.

Consulting + Execution Retainers

All the benefits and process of a Consulting Retainer, but where BrandNerd becomes your company's marketing department or at least an extension of it.

Capabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Creative Services like copywriting, graphic design, videography, and presentations.
  • Website Design & Development
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Promotional collateral for email, PPC, social media, and print campaigns.

Pricing

Consulting + Execution Retainers are tailored to your exact needs with pricing based on monthly allotted hours and deliverables.

Is BrandNerd an Agency?

This is a question that comes up a lot. I do not run an agency in the traditional sense. In fact, I believe what I do is much better than an agency. Where agencies hire mostly young creatives right out of school, I work within my personal network of self-employed contractors to complete the work.

These are some of the most talented people in the country. I work with writers who've published 30+ books, designers who've worked for billion dollar companies, and award-winning film makers.

Many are local to me, but some are scattered around North America. In today's digital world, I'm more concerned about their ability and reliability than I am concerned about their location.

You can view my role as the Chief Marketing Officer for your company. Everything will run past me before you ever see it.

What is a Retainer?

A retainer is  an agreement between a your company and mine that includes a monthly budget in exchange for a variety of services, which can be based on hours, deliverables, or both. We prefer retainers be 12 months or more, but the time periods will be tailored specifically to your objectives. This long-term relationship allows an us to become very familiar with your company and help you execute long-term business goals.

Why a Retainer Benefits You

  1. Access to a marketing expert who is obsessed with your success.
  2. Regularly scheduled time with someone you trust to keep your marketing on track.
  3. You'll stop wasting time and energy on unorganized marketing activities.
