Here’s what others have said…

“It was much more than email blasting. They helped us build strong relationships… I fell in love with marketing because of 1 Bold Step.

Lisa Stanley

Executive VP, ClickBid

Telling the story and articulating the value of your business is way more challenging than you might think. We have worked with other marketing firms – 1 Bold Step is by far the best value we have seen. If you are looking for the best, search no more.

Mike Schipper

CEO, InsITe Business Solutions

1BoldStep provided the following services to us: Set up of HubSpot CMS; acted as Project Manager for HubSpot to migrate our previous website; helped with Go Live for website; launched the payment gateway; helped us understand page view analytics from the CMS; advised us on ways to improve email health. All of the project execution and communication by Steve and Adam were flawless from start to finish, and the project was completed to the timeline as promised. Highly recommend!!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

What positions will you fractionally fill for our team?

We can fill a wide range of positions like: CMO, Director of Marketing, Digital Marketing Manager, Content Creator, SEO Specialist, Sales Consultant, Sales Manager, Systems Admin, and HubSpot Admin.

What is your average ROI for your clients?

For first-year clients, we expect to see a 2.5x return on marketing investment. For second and third-year clients that average should grow between 4-6x your marketing spend.

What will the first 30 Days of work look like?

In the first 30 days, we will spend a significant amount of time implementing and aligning marketing processes and systems. Making sure that we don’t run into system errors throughout the year. We will also set up reporting dashboards, and get started on your highest-priority items. You should meet with us 2-4 times the first month and biweekly following.

What if we already have a strategic marketing plan?

Although we urge all of our clients to build a strategic plan with us, we are happy to get involved with what you already have and help you execute. We are an extension of your organization. Not a replacement.

But we strongly recommend it! A team that gets to weigh in will also buy in to the plan. And our plans are aligned with the overall business strategy, making marketing efforts more strategic too.

Can I hire you just to create content?

You sure can! We develop and execute on editorial calendars and content for clients across a range of industries and markets.

However, we believe everything we do has to be aligned with your organization’s strategic goals. We can create content, but we’ll recommend time up front to make sure that you’ve optimized your SEO so that the content hits the mark

How many hours a month will I need you?

Our time with your organization will be based on your organizational goals, the marketing plan, and the time needed to accomplish it. The bigger the goal, the more time you will need us. But we can dial the marketing up and down to fit your needs.
