Marketing strategy services that select the right channels. At the right times. For the right people.

We deal in genuinely bespoke marketing strategies – not copy and paste formulas. Getting the interplay right between our clients’ brand strengths and their customers’ behavioral profiles is never one-size-fits-all; it requires a considered blend of the right data, the right creative and the right execution.

Our marketing strategy specialists can be deployed to create full-program blueprints or single campaign plans – purpose-built to accelerate results in-line with your specific growth or customer experience goals. From brand awareness and GTM to ABM, demand generation, content or CRM, we can define and deliver on a full suite of marketing strategies in a winning symphony of audit, application and optimization.

The Harte Hanks strategic process supports end to end marketing programs and delivery through two core disciplines:

Strategy Discovery

Discovery

Discovery is the foundation for strategy success. Our qualitative and quantitative research practices, combined with intelligence tools, enable us to hear and feel what customers are saying. We gain the insights needed to define personas, develop journey maps, and tailor execution plans based on your needs. The discovery process is centred around the Four C’s:

Customer

Uncovering the customer’s characteristics, behaviors and needs to allow us to develop relevant messages and meet them in their channel of choice.

Category

Assessing market and product categories to understand the factors that influence demand.

Competitor

Analyzing competitors and their strategies to set a benchmark for visibility or performance.

Culture

Infusing a light sprinkling of culture into our strategy, ensuring delivery is authentic and true to your brand.

Development

Blending the learnings from the discovery phase with your outlined expectations, targets and timelines, we then develop a strategy that is focused and effective. The strategy development process also includes demand modeling and resource assessment to create transparent delivery timelines. We take the following factors into consideration:

Targeting

Mapping audience segments, clusters, groups, personas, verticals and demographics – plus specific messaging and themes that can be used for each.

Offering

Articulating the product and positioning of the campaign to develop a captivating “offer” for the prospect and a reason to engage.

Tactics

Defining sets of plays or campaigns based on the channels, content, messaging and digital advertising required to achieve targets.

Technology

Consulting on existing or deploying new technologies designed to achieve low labor marketing delivery and optimized results.

People

Allocating headcount (existing or new) into the right places to ensure full program delivery.
