Front Burner Marketing is a marketing agency based in the Cleveland, Ohio area, catering to the marketing needs of mid-sized businesses who have little to no marketing support personnel on staff, or are looking for a subject-matter expert to implement something new. We provide marketing services to any organization that needs to have high visibility with their target audience, both online and off. As with any Marketing Department, it’s our job to be knowledgeable and be ready to execute using all of the tools available to modern marketers today.
We specialize in Inbound Marketing, including content creation for blog posts, whitepapers, infographics, videos, and other assets that will attract prospects to you and the valuable information you have to offer. Marketing Automation helps us get the word out with email marketing and lead nurturing, so we can turn them into customers. In particular, we are a HubSpot Certified Partner Agency, managing the HubSpot Marketing Automation application for many of our clients, including strategy, persona development, blogging, email marketing, landing page creation, keyword optimization, and reporting.
We also specialize in Web Design, Website Audits, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), Hyper-Local Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Pay per Click Marketing, Online Reputation Management, Graphic Design, and Branded Promotional Items. If you need it, we have the resources to make it happen.
We understand how much your business means to you, and consider ourselves to be part of your team working hard to make your business successful. Have a question? You’ll hear back from us, with a thorough answer. Need something done quickly? We’ll do our best to gather our resources to get it done for you as expediently as possible. On a tight budget? We treat your money as we do our own, finding resources that present the best value and meet your goals.
We function as an outsourced Marketing Department – it’s like paying for a fractional share of a highly educated, experienced, and dedicated Marketing Team – paying just for what you need, with no need to hire full time personnel on staff. We work to get to know you, your organization, and your customers. We then work with you to create a marketing strategy you’ll feel great about putting into action in the marketplace. Once we have a solid marketing plan in place, we handle the marketing implementation for you, just like your internal Marketing Department would do.
We use the following methodology in everything we do:
Whether the project is a year-long SEO effort, or a quick image banner for your website, we take into consideration the market you need to reach. We want all our efforts to benefit your brand and your business, so that’s why we always start by assessing exactly what you need and what results you expect to get from it. We do this via in-depth consultation and research.
We then plan and propose the best solution to your online marketing challenges. With your approval, we launch the plan and monitor its progress. We tweak it according to the results and repeat the process.
Our Dashboard System
Unlike freelancers and other marketing agencies, we provide our clients access to progress reports for many of our digital projects. We use a reporting dashboard where you can find all the data about your campaign, ensuring everything is in place and that all goals are accomplished on time.
Every one of our experienced professionals has a degree in their field, and has actually worked in responsible marketing roles on the client side. We didn’t just decide to hang up a marketing sign outside our door one day. We know what it’s like to have responsibility for revenue growth, deadlines to meet, personnel and agencies to manage, and more work to do than humanly possible between meetings. Our marketing company is founded on being an invaluable assistance to you in terms of getting things done. Here are a few of our key players:
