If you're a director of a small architecture firm trying to build a real (profitable) business, and have a big impact on the world along the way...we should work together.
Here's a few things I know about you…
You believe that your work should speak for itself. You get energy from creating and reimagining things. You see opportunity where others see challenges. You want to build a reputation as an expert firm. You want to work with better clients who value your ideas.
But… (there's always a but, right?!)
Communicating the value of what you do in the right ways, to the right people, in the right places... is easier said than done.
You get stuck working out which marketing platforms, strategies and tactics are right for your firm. You have trouble fitting the things you know you should be doing into your week. You just don't know how to make the most of your limited budget and time you have for marketing. Let's be honest here, you probably write specifications better than you write blog posts.
The good news? I can help you work up a plan of attack, then teach you the nuts and bolts. We'll get it up and running together.
Vanity Projects is a remote, independent marketing agency founded by myself, Dave Sharp. I've advised Breathe Architecture, WOWOWA, Patterson Associates, NTF Architecture, Andrew Burns Architecture, FreadmanWhite and over 100 other bold and audacious architects from all over the world on marketing, positioning and social media.
A Monthly Strategy Call
Who is this for:
Architecture firms with fewer than 20 employees who understand the power of good marketing to help attract better clients, but have chosen to manage it on their own.
What does the Monthly Strategy Call involve?
Every month we'll meet remotely for a 60-minute video call. We'll work collaboratively to develop a marketing plan for your firm, then plan out the steps we'll take to get there. Each month, we'll review where we're at in the plan, critique the tasks you've completed, and I'll teach you how to do the upcoming homework. I'll also be waiting in the wings in-between meetings to help you out and answer questions via email.
And why do I need a Monthly Strategy Call?
Because without guidance and perspective from an experienced advisor, it's really tough to know whether you are setting the right goals, putting the right strategy in place, creating the right content that will engage your best prospects, and reaching out to the right audiences... and not just wasting your time doing little bits here and there.
What's in it for you?
- A perspective on how you're really doing. Advising so many firms facing similar kinds of problems has enabled me to ask the right questions, then provide insightful analysis and transformative advice to architects looking to manage their own marketing.
- Actionable advice, not lengthy reports. Each month I'll deliver industry leading advice following a prescribed agenda, carefully and concisely stated recommendations, and then walk you through the steps involved showing you what to do at each stage so that you'll have the skills and tools you need to make progress.
- A comprehensive refresh. We will dive into a bunch of important topics that will help you transform your approach to marketing, such as: positioning, social media, email marketing, content marketing, your website, getting published and lead-generation systems.
I work with a handful of clients each month, and only where I see a clear way to help them substantially.
