During a sales cycle with a new prospect, key decision makers were unable to find listings for the company website in Google. A simple search for ”Datastrait Networks” was not revealing results. This lack of search engine visibility was a big problem.

Upon further reflection, DataStrait decided they needed more comprehensive outside help with a digital marketing strategy for small business than what they could provide in-house.


DataStrait leadership reached out to Touchline Marketing to conduct an assessment of their digital marketing presence. Touchline conducted a comprehensive audit of the existing marketing function and outlined a series of foundation building activities to achieve a professional digital marketing presence. The digital marketing activities were grouped into three areas:

  1. Immediate digital marketing needs
  2. Intermediate digital marketing needs
  3. Extended & Recurring digital marketing needs

Utilizing a Custom Digital Marketing Plan to address digital marketing needs, the company has attained a level of professionalism with their small business digital marketing foundation. The company continues to leverage Touchline Marketing to produce thought leadership content specific to their industry, build a list of prospects with lead magnets & landing pages, and nurture leads with email marketing and rich social media content.
