    I hired Strategic Marketing Consultants 2 weeks ago. I have yet to receive a single communication from them.

    Ryan, I sent you your first round of drafts last week (4/27), but have not heard back from you.

    When I first met Shea, I was taken by his ability to clearly communicate his thoughts and ideas, and quickly pick up on where I was "coming from." His design and maintenance of the SRT website provided me with a positive interaction with the site and the group, and ultimately achieved its goal, to entice further investigation. I came, I saw, I joined.

About this pro

We Help Local SMBs Solve Their Digital Marketing Challenges Attract More Traffic Capture More Leads Nurture Your Prospects Educate Them As To Why They Need What You Have To Sell And WHY YOU ARE THE OBVIOUS CHOICE TO BUY IT FROM We look over everything you are doing to market your business to determine where you can get more leverage. (Better Return On Investment (ROI) and Return On Ad Spend (ROAS). We don't have any cookie-cutter packages or set prices. Every business is different. Every situation is different. We will customize a solution that best fits your needs and budget. We are true marketing consultants and as such we emphasize the research and development of a strategic plan before we even think about the tactical implementation of your plan. We only work with a small number of clients at any one given time so that we can give them the personal attention they deserve. I love seeing the transformation that takes place in businesses during and after our initial engagement. We continue to work with many of our clients year after year as the needs for ongoing marketing and website updates are often a never-ending process. Even with outstanding results with Search Engine Optimization (SEO), if you ever stop, your results will begin to fade. With Search Engine Marketing (SEM) the same holds true except that the drop off is nearly immediate. However, keep in mind that there are approximately 21 different ways to market your business and you generally can only focus on one to three at a time. Ideally you want to find the the methods that work best for your business - which can change over time. Therefore you have to 'always be marketing' and you have to continually test to find out what works best today, tomorrow, next week, next month and so on. The marketplace is very dynamic and continually changing. Let us do the heavy lifting with marketing for you while you focus on your core business. My name is Shea Ellison and I am the founder and lead consultant. Chances are you will be working directly with me from the beginning all the way through implementation. I look forward to working with you and helping transform your business into a profit faucet.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      All of our pricing is customized to each client. No two situations or clients are the same. We don't believe in cookie-cutter pricing and offering a set package or service offering to everyone. Your situation is unique and you deserve a custom solution to meet your needs and hopefully exceed your expectations. We like to under-promise and over-deliver on our service, before, during, and after the sale.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      Typically we will begin with our Business Evaluation to learn about the client's business, who is their target market, what are their pain points, why should a prospect do business with them rather than any of their competitors, who are their primary competitors, and more.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Although much of what I have learned about web design, development, SEO/SEM, Digital/Internet marketing has been self taught, I have studied many of the masters, hired coaches and trainers to learn the intricacies of how different strategies and tactics work, why they work, and how to verify and test they are working. I earned the Project Management Professional certification in 2001, a Masters Degree in E-Commerce in 2002, a Certified Internet Webmaster in 2003, Global Project Management certificate in 2006, the SEO Mastery Certification in 2008 and many other technical and marketing training programs over the past 20 years.
    Coverage Area for Strategic Marketing Consultants is about 30+ miles of Atlanta, GA.
