What is DRR?

Our Digital Review & Roadmap Strategy service is a strategy sprint consultation service, designed to help brands develop a hand-in-glove strategy to drive their digital marketing activities.

Here's how it works: 
1. We connect on a 3 hour meeting or call, to better understand your business, your customers as well as your digital marketing needs, 
2. We co -create a solid strategy that is poised to drive your marketing goals. 
3. We document our process and proposition, and proceed to develop a 12-month rollout plan  to implement the developed strategy.

This strategy takes place over a 3 hour period, and a document detailing the strategy is developed and shared with you to implement as you deem fit. 

Whoever you choose to implement the strategy with, is entirely up to you.
Our Focus Industries
Over the last 10 years, we have built some considerable digital experience, working with these 10 industries:

  • ​Consumer Packaged Goods
  • ​Retail Businesses
  • ​Food Brands.
  • ​Healthcare & OTC Pharmaceuticals
  • ​Residential Real Estate.
  • Ecommerce Businesses
  • ​Travel & Tourism
  • ​Insurance

  • Technology - Saas | Fintech | BNPL | Trading Platforms

How It Works
State of Brand Report 
We will initiate the relationship by conducting a State of Brand Online Audit. 

This exercise is aimed at outlining and establishing where the brand is today - in terms of online assets, search share, online properties available, engagement rate, online market share, ROI of current digital marketing efforts, etc.

 This is aimed at understanding the company’s current footprint, possibilities, as well as marketing challenges , and this will inform the scope of work needed to achieve the brand’s objectives.

Digital Landscape and Industry Analysis
We then proceed to extend our fact-finding to the Nigerian landscape and industry, in a bid to understand the market size and potential, digital possibilities, current customer behaviour and trends, industry marketing challenges, and opportunities for leverage and amplification of growth in the industry.
Keyword and Social Search Analysis
We intend to launch a social analytics campaign, aimed at understanding, in the customer’s own voice, what the customer thinks about the brand and its product/services.

 This is aimed at understanding the current brand bias in the minds of thousands or millions of customers.

RoadMap Definition
In this phase, we will take a deep dive into the company’s value proposition, and see how it stacks in the industry, noting the trends and market movers. 

We will use that information, as well as insights garnered from our collection of case studies, to co-create the core digital marketing offer or hook, that we believe gives us our best chances of launching the campaign that drives the next level of digital growth for the business.
Rollout Plan.
We will then collate our findings to create a rollout plan - a 12 month execution plan, detailing how best to implement this strategy, its Milestones, KPIs, and experiments, as well as noting key moments to pause or even abort the plan.

Along with the recordings of the meeting, these findings will be collated into a strategy and budget document and shared with you and your brand/management team.

There are 3 outcomes here:

1. You implement it In-house.
2. You give it to an existing partner to execute
3. We implement it for you.

Whatever you choose to do, is up to you.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the strategy session last?
A typical DDRR Strategy service will last about 3 hours, preferably in - person, (although Virtual works as well) where we will discuss the brand/business needs in detail, and come up with a roadmap on how to proceed. 

How much does the strategy cost?
The DDRS service costs 250 thousand Naira for the strategy sprint service.

What if I don't like the strategy?
If you truly believe that the strategy isn't a great fit for your brand, we are happy to give back a full refund of your funds. No hard feelings, no strings attached.

What if I give the implementation of the campaign to another agency?
You are absolutely free to execute the strategy with whatever agency or consultant you choose. You can even run it in-house. It is your strategy after all.

What if I want to give the implementation of the campaign to your agency?
we would net off the complete cost of strategy (250k) from the cost of execution. so in essence, you are getting the strategy for free in return for giving us the implementation project.

If I sign up for the service, how soon before we can get started?
I believe 3-7 days is required, to do our own research before the process begins. Please note that you will be required to fill a survey, a few days before our strategy sprint meeting.

Our Philosophy
If you’ve handled digital marketing campaigns or activities in the past, you would agree that the only thing that matters, in the short, mid or long term is results.

Not packaging, not flashy powerpoint presentations, not british accents. Just measurable, quantifiable results that move the needle directly, or indirectly.

Results. That’s ALL we do.

And that’s why we do things a little differently.

For instance, we believe in brutal honesty, in dealing with our clients, sometimes even at our expense. 

We also believe it is best to align at the beginning, but also leave room for flexibility, as marketing is dynamic, and continuous optimisation is critical to success of any campaign.

Finally, we believe it is important to give the right expectations, so alignment across board is achieved, and we all have a good idea of what to expect - best case, average case or worst case ( and yes, not all campaigns are runaway successes).
