Our Philosophy

Math-Before-Marketing™

We named our practice Valve+Meter because the variables we can manage with you are the flow and cost of new business. The “valve” part of our approach manages the right rate of new business for your operation. By managing the appropriate rate of leads for your business, we help ensure your marketing dollars are only spent on leads you can convert. We measure ourselves not by the activities we pursue but by the “metered” results we generate.

Control the variables within your business.

Measurable Results

To gain more significant insights into your business and return on marketing spend, you must collect and test the correct data from lead origination through purchases.

Repeatable Strategies

Using clear reporting and written marketing strategies, the most effective strategies can be duplicated, and less efficient efforts can be optimized.

Scalable Growth

With accurate data and a repeatable strategy, you can scale your marketing. When you know what works, your marketing budget is limitless.

Data Driven Marketing

Experience Growth with Valve+Meter

We use the term performance marketing because we are committed to delivering actual, tangible results to grow your business efficiently while ensuring no marketing dollar is wasted.

Valve+Meter is specifically designed to deliver cross-vertical expertise. You gain subject matter experts across all digital marketing and lead generation disciplines to grow your business according to measurable results.

Discover Your Holistic Marketing Strategy

You won’t find one-size-fits-all tactics with Valve+Meter.

Research and data cut away wasted marketing expenses.

Optimally efficient strategies create more robust and sound results to achieve your long-term goals.

Our Methodology

The Marketing Flywheel

Marketing generates leads for Sales. Sales closes the lead and hands it over to Operations to deliver services. Finance collects revenue, covers business costs, spins off profit, and re-invests back into the flywheel (marketing). In business, the Flywheel Effect (continuous energy) comes from investing in marketing programs at the correct rate, performing at the proper Return on Marketing Spend (ROMS).

Our Process

How We ThinkFirst™ With You

Your business is unique. There is no single marketing strategy to accelerate every flywheel.

Finding the distinct valves to open and propel more revenue into your organization requires innovation. We designed ThinkFirst™ to streamline the process and eliminate the guesswork.

From the first time you speak with our team, you will experience a new kind of marketing. Our strategists and subject matter experts collaborate with you to achieve your long-term vision.

By focusing on four steps, we build your custom marketing strategy with exacting precision:

1 Discovery

Be heard and inspired with an initial conversation. Discovery conversations help you learn more about our perspective on marketing.

Our strategists gather information about your reasons for seeking a marketing strategy and your overall goals for your business.

Next, we collaborate within a Discovery Workshop. Alongside you, our strategists review your current situation, including your marketing, sales processes, and existing customer insights.

You will also share your competitive advantages and any threats you anticipate in achieving your vision.

Throughout the discovery phase, expect your curiosity to pique as our 360-degree review pinpoints and tackles both your strength and the operational gaps that impede success.

And this is just the first step in taking command of your marketing with Valve+Meter.

3 Execution Your Strategy

Launching your custom marketing vision into action deploys all of our resources.

We implement the insights gleaned throughout ThinkFirst™ discovery, research, and planning to sharply tailor every element to meet your brand’s values and goals.

Our team seamlessly integrates SEO and paid media strategies, web design, outbound marketing, and more, ensuring a unified and potent market presence.

You gain a team of specialists across all marketing disciplines and a dedicated account manager acting as an extension of your business. We actively monitor, report, and adjust your campaign to optimize performance in real-time, benefiting from the continual analysis and learning.

As your campaign progresses, the inertia within your flywheel breaks free. With transparent and timely reporting, you gain clear insights into why marketing works for your organization.

Valve+Meter’s agile and data-driven marketing ensures your campaigns reach, resonate, convert your target audience, and solidify your flywheel’s acceleration.

Research And Planning 2

Armed with what we learned during discovery, our team of subject matter experts executes an exhaustive research and planning phase.

We drill into your customer data, previous marketing efforts, and other internal records to elucidate an ideal plan.

Our subject matter experts in all disciplines, including SEO, paid media, email, web design and development, outbound marketing, and data analysis, pinpoint opportunities within your industry and marketplace. Research includes auditing key competitors, emerging trends, and even out-of-market leaders to plan your strategy.

With a wealth of data, ThinkFirst™ delivery culminates in a clear plan to open new valves, increase the flow of leads into your business, and take control of your performance.

You convene with our strategists and select subject matter experts to unveil a thorough ThinkFirst™ presentation and a comprehensive book with our findings.

Analytics And Continuous Improvement 4

Informed decisions increase the efficiency within your business and the power of your flywheel.

Valve+Meter doesn’t simply track results and report the outcomes of marketing. We cultivate a culture of curiosity and ongoing testing.

Our innovative approach significantly improves your marketing costs by amplifying the most successful strategies and honing less efficient ones.

When angular momentum takes hold within your flywheel, your sales, operations, and financial well-being remain steady across plateaus and into abundance.

With Valve+Meter, regain control, enjoy transparent reporting, and ensure your marketing strategies perpetually attract, engage, and yield optimal results for your business.
