Marketing Checklist for Architects
This collection of marketing checklists will help you to promote your architecture firm in the right way, to the right audiences to attract better quality clients.
Rather than generic marketing checklists, this collection is unique in that it’s informed by thousands of hours spent coaching and advising principals of small and medium sized architecture firms from all over the world, and every sector of the construction industry.
Checklists in this collection.
Who these checklists are for.
I’ve chosen marketing channels that are relevant to the greatest number of architecture firms. Whether you’re small, or big, focused on housing, or commercial buildings – chances are your firm will probably still be marketing on the channels covered in this collection. They are Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin, Google, email and the media. You’ll just approach each of them a little bit differently, depending on your goals and target audience.
About the author.
I’m Dave Sharp, a remote marketing coach and advisor for small architecture practices. I hope that by sharing these checklists freely I’ll be able to help more architects have a greater impact with their marketing.
How to use these checklists.
Each section will focus on a different marketing channel or strategy. Every page has a list of decisions that need to be made for your firm, and a checklist for you to implement.
The list of decisions you’ll need to make are framed as questions. That’s because what works for one firm won’t work for another. Your job is to think through each question, or discuss it with your colleagues, and arrive at a decision you’re happy with. The final decision doesn’t have to be perfect, just good enough.
I’ve laid out this collection in an order that I believe would suit most architecture firms, but please feel free to skip around as needed.
This collection is not finished.
I’ve made a decision to share these checklists while I’m still working on them. Each time you come back they will probably be a little bit different. I hope this resource gets better, and more helpful over time.
