Small Town Bakery Facing Intense Competition
For the past 8 years, Jim has owned and operated a small bakery in Arizona. He uses his bakery to support his growing family. Business has always been steady and predictable.
Last year, a large bakery chain entered his market, causing his revenue to plummet over 30%. Realizing that he needs to diversify his revenue, he decides to begin offering catering services to the community. The expense of starting a new service during a period of decreased revenue is challenging and taxing on the business.
The bakery needs to generate catering clients.
Effective Strategy with Flexible Execution
Jim connects with his SharedTEAMS marketing strategist. They work together to develop a strategy targeting catering clients. Jim uses his shared marketing department to execute the strategy. He coordinates with his graphic designer to update menus and fliers, his web designer to add a promotion to the website, and his digital marketing specialist to set up advertising campaigns. Jim’s budget is limited, so he decides to handle the social media communication and the media outreach on his end with strategic guidance and support provided by his communications specialist and PR specialist.
Impact: 26% revenue increase within 6 months
Total Cost: $650 One-Time + $200 Advertising Budget Monthly
“Bravo on an AWESOME service! I love the concept and the execution is spot on. Perfect for our fast-paced start-up phase.”

B2B Consulting Firm Modernizing
Over the past 24 years, Rebecca and Gerard have run a specialized business consulting firm focused on creative team building. Throughout the years, they have built a positive reputation and most clients were either by word of mouth or repeat clients. In the past 5 years, business has decreased significantly. As their core clients begin to fade, new companies are entering the market using modern marketing and sales practices.
They need to build a marketing program from the ground up.
Full Foundation and Ongoing Management
Gerard takes the lead working with the SharedTEAMS marketing strategist to develop updated messaging and branding. They work with the website team to develop a custom website. A digital advertising program is developed to target keywords searched online that are relevant to the firm. The communications specialist puts a social media and blog program into action to engage the target audience. A media outreach program is launched to generate interest in industry publications.
Impact: 260% Increase in Leads within 4 months
Total Cost: $1,450 One-Time Foundation + $750 Monthly
“This is a tremendous value! We now have 6 specialized roles for far less than what we would’ve paid for one employee.”
Elsa MacDonald, CTAI
Mobile App Struggling with User Engagement
Sam recently launched a mobile app to target high-end consumers. The app concept is a variation on an existing app and initial reception was very positive. While the app has been successful in generating media attention and has a steady flow of downloads, the engagement within the app is lower than projected. Low engagement is not only having a negative impact on revenue projections and employee morale, but it is also impacting the success of investor meetings, and making them question the viability of the business.
The app needs to increase user engagement.
Targeted Approach for Direct Impact
Sam is familiar with digital marketing, so he has a clear vision for the approach. He sends the engagement promotion strategy to his SharedTEAMS marketing strategist for a second opinion -they toss ideas around before deciding on an approach. He then coordinates with his digital marketing specialist to set up retargeting campaigns targeting users that installed the application. He then connects with his communications specialist to promote the new incentive through social media and in a newsletter sent to the user base. He keeps a close eye on reports and metrics, communicating with the team to make modifications on-the-fly.
Impact: 233% increase in user engagement
Total Cost: $850 One-Time + $400 Advertising Budget Monthly
“An excellent value for any small business or non-profit that requires a full-scale program on a budget!”
Jay Van Dussen, Needymeds
