The first phase in Blue Archer's strategic marketing approach: ECCO. Logically, before your website can become effective, your market must be exposed to it. Every website strategy must include exposure strategies. How will you drive traffic to your website?
At Blue Archer, we leverage a strategic marketing concept we created called "ECCO." It's something that we try to impress upon all of our clients as well.

One of the most important aspects of gauging the success of your web presence is tracking how many viewers actually visit your site, and how those viewers experience it.

Understatement of the year: we generate lots of ideas at Blue Archer. Every day here consists of brainstorming in some manner - in private, out loud, on paper, and sometimes in the form of dance.

Think up 10 innovative ideas, implement 2 or 3, and your company will always provide clients with something fresh and applicable.
