No matter the team, the players must understand the rules of the game in order to succeed. It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking kids on the playground, professional athletes on the field, or employees in the workplace. The rules themselves may change, but the need for documented policies, the need to follow consistent procedures, and the need to train the team on those policies and procedures, that all remains the same. At Steelmark, we work with you to understand, develop, and improve your operational processes.
Maybe you just want to formally capture those processes, with an eye towards expanding your business. Perhaps you’re concerned with consistency across shifts, locations, or teams, and want to bring them all into alignment. Maybe you have a process that’s broken, and you’re looking for an objective eye towards fixing it. Then again, perhaps you have all the processes in place, and just need help driving adherence and accountability. With backgrounds in various quality and legislative standards, the Steelmark team will bring their expertise to your processes.
Sales and Marketing Strategies
Whether you’re looking to land customer number one, or customer number ten thousand and one; whether you are looking to attract new customer to your business, or grow your business with your existing customers; Steelmark can help.
Our experienced team of professionals will work with you to understand your business, to help define (or even establish) your goals, and to assist you in implementing the focused sales and marketing strategies you need. From lead generation, to branding and marketing, to actual sales, today’s digitally augmented marketplace demands a different approach.
The Steelmark team can assist your organization in leveraging conventional channels such as word-of-mouth and business-to-business marketing, while also establishing a relevant brand presence in the online marketplace.
Working to deliver upon your needs, Steelmark can provide everything from a branded web presence to a fully functioning digital shopping experience.
As little as a few years ago, an online business presence was a nice-to-have, a vanity presence for big businesses. The very concept of social media, of online marketing as a two-way avenue of communication, was unheard of. Today, social media is the number one activity on the web, driven largely by smartphone users who spend as little as sixteen percent of their time making actual phone calls. It’s not just about proactive marketing either – approximately eighty-two percent of all customers look to social media first to get an issue resolved.
Whether you’re looking to establish your social media presence, or maximize the one you already have, Steelmark can help. We look beyond the basics to identify and recommend the social media networks most relevant to your business, and to your customers. The Steelmark team will work with you to develop a two-way communication strategy, while also providing effective content management. A strong social media strategy is about more than just having a presence on the web, it’s about being both relevant and accessible. Even if you consider yourself digitally illiterate, Steelmark can help.
Content Development and Management
Running a successful business is always a collaborative effort, with multiple players and even more moving pieces. It takes an entire team to keep things running smoothly. Everybody has a part to play, a task to deliver, and a point at which they hand off responsibility in the business lifecycle. When all most people see is the finished product it’s easy to forget that content management has its own lifecycles too, but it takes a lot of work to create, deliver, and manage that content.
Content management can involve anything from an initial business plan, to a grant or award application, a marketing brochure, a white paper of case study, a Twitter campaign, a Facebook page, a company blog, or a dynamic website. Sometimes it’s a one-and-done piece of collateral for your business, but more often it’s an ongoing evolution or refresh. At Steelmark we not only have the skills and talent to create that content with you, but the experience to help you manage the lifecycle of creation, editing, approval, deployment, and administration. Customer expectations have evolved significantly over the years, and every day you’re not managing your content to keep them engaged, you’re losing customers to disinterest.
Accounting and Financial Management
Do you have an accounting or financial “situation” that keeps you awake at night?
Are you anxious about that backlog of governmental returns to be filed, taxes to be paid, debts to be recovered, creditors to be paid and you don’t know who to turn to?
Are you looking to establish your financial road map, improve your profitability, or decrease your costs?
All this can be incredibly overwhelming to a business owner, but it doesn't have to be. You don't have to bear the weight of this on your own.
Steelmark can help.
We offer you a free 3 hour initial business meeting where we'll seek to understand your challenges and determine the best go forward plan for you and your business.
If you're worried about fees or that your cash flow may not be able to carry the cost to course correct, don’t be.
We have created a “success” formula, in that, if your problem is not solved eventually you don’t pay.
It's that simple. So what are you waiting for? Contact Steelmark today.
