Foundational Strategies

VCM Strategies offers a brand strategy, messaging strategy, and marketing strategy.

What is a brand strategy?

A brand strategy is a blueprint for building and expressing your brand before or after launching. Executing marketing according to a brand strategy can lead to, on average, a 31% uptick in revenues and 3.5 times more brand visibility.

What is a messaging strategy?

The messaging strategy development process involves the careful evaluation and determination of what your messaging will convey to your target audience that is impressive enough to capture their attention and is known to save up to 30 hours a month on content development.

What is a marketing strategy?

The marketing strategy is the game plan for reaching your target audience that is invaluable to all businesses. Your ability to keep the ball rolling after our work together will be critical to your success and progress, as strategy without following through with marketing is a waste of time.


Why VCM Strategies?

No one wants to hire or work with someone that they must micro-manage. When busy, no one has time for that!


You want a partner who can pick up the ball and start running with it from day one. You also don’t want to hire someone to help you out, making you look bad.


VCM Strategies is here to ease your stress and make you look good to whomever you look to impress, as your trusted support, ally, advocate, confidant, and ear.
