Strategies for Growth & Competitive Edge

At Industrial Marketing Specialists, we craft marketing strategies tailored for the industrial sector. Our approach blends traditional industrial market understanding with innovative marketing techniques to drive growth and competitive advantage for our clients.

From Concept to Completion

Utilizing the DMAIC methodology to solve BIGGER problems.

Six Sigma originated in manufacturing, but the tools and methodologies can be applied to digital marketing.  At Industrial Marketing Specialists, we are data and process driven!  Here’s how we use DMAIC when implementing your digital strategy:

  • Define & Measure: The team will assess the goals and define the problem being experienced, then move on to measure it. This involves gathering data in regards to  performance, ensuring that the data being obtained is comprehensive and accurate.
  • Analyze & Improve: With the data in hand, the team analyzes it to  identify what can be improved to achieve the desired results. Using these insights, we make the changes that lead to positive gains.
  • Control: Control Phase aims to put in place safeguards to ensure the  gains obtained in earlier phases are sustained. This entails the establishment of key metrics and continuous monitoring/reporting.
