Communications & Marketing Strategy scope of work total: $27,350

Phase 1: Plan for $2,650

Before you can get started with a communications and marketing strategy, you need to get familiar with the existing assets you’ll be working with. Kick off the Plan phase by analyzing the background materials provided by the client so you can get up to speed as well as begin to ideate new opportunities. 

This phase is also a good time to conduct an audit of competitors to discover what else is out there and brainstorm how you can help differentiate your client from the rest. Wrap up the Plan phase by building audience personas based on the initial findings.

Phase 2: Build for $11,700

Ready to roll up your sleeves? The Build phase is where the bulk of the work will take place. Everything you develop in this phase will shape the execution of the campaign, so it’s critical to nail down the details to ensure the rest of the project runs smoothly.

During the Build phase, you’ll be prepping for everything to come during the launch phase. This entails developing PR, email marketing, and social media campaign strategies, and creating the lists, templates, and goals for each of those. If strategy is more your thing, then this would be a good time to connect with a graphic designer or CMS developer in the Wethos network to handle the more technical aspects of the development.

Phase 3: Launch (month 1) for $4,250

It’s go time! Get ready to launch and execute the templates and campaigns you set up during the build phase. This phase includes everything from building out content calendars, engaging on social media, and designing social media assets.

Phase 4: Launch (month 2) for $4,250

The second month of your Launch phase is all about continuing those marketing activities from the first month of launch. Be sure that your scope of work is clearly defined during the launch months so that everyone is on the same page about the work that’s included, which helps to avoid scope creep.

Phase 5: Measure and check-in for $4,500

And that’s a wrap. How’d the campaigns do? Don’t forget to measure the results and present them to your client as part of the off-boarding process. During this phase, it’s key to not only report on the performance of the campaign but to also provide recommendations and opportunities for future campaigns.
