How to create an actionable marketing strategy with us

We’ve seen the two extremes.

1) Thick, dense and exhaustive marketing strategies. Intimidating documents. Impossible to execute.

2) Broad, light and vague marketing strategies. Impotent documents. Loose and aimless.

We’ve kept it inspiring and practical.

Real results can only come when you genuinely connect with your audiences, build trust and make a meaningful value proposition. Get strategic about how you market!

Marketing Consultant – Brand Storyteller

My storytelling superpower began as a filmmaker. I’ve created hundreds of hours of video content and reached millions of eyeballs all around the world. I’ve shot in the desserts of the Arabian Peninsula, in pirate infested waters of South East Asia and in concrete jungles of the Pacific.

While I loved working with some big-hitting brands across Australia and the Asia Pacific, I discovered my passion was guiding small and medium businesses to better ways to tell their story. This storytelling obsession led to the creation of Catalyst Content, with an audience-focused, real-human approach to content marketing.

When I’m not weaving together stories you can find me in Hawthorn, hitting tennis balls with my Francophile daughters Ash and Serena (not their real names, of course!).

I can’t wait to meet and discover you over an “Hour of Power”. That’s why the session is free!

Let’s talk marketing ROI.


How is the marketing strategy “actionable”?2022-10-31T13:20:59+10:00

Upon receiving the final strategy document and database of ideas, the business will clearly know what steps to take next and have a guide on how to execute it all.

Beyond just theory, the “actionable” strategy will lay out the next steps ahead.

An internal marketing director will be able to implement the strategy without the help of Catalyst Content.

How long does it take to create an Actionable Marketing Strategy?2022-10-31T13:24:02+10:00

We take between 10 -13 weekly meetings to develop the strategy with the client.

We have found that anything shorter is too simplistic for most SMEs and therefore meaningless. Also, to drag out the strategy longer risks fatigue, losing inspiration / momentum and becoming overly complicated.

1 quarter (13 weeks) is the sweet spot.

Will I get publishable content out of the strategy exercise?2022-10-31T13:28:22+10:00

No – you will not have any articles, social posts, graphics or videos at the end of this exercise.

The purpose of the strategy is to guide the content creation.

At the end of the strategy exercise, your business will have:

  • clarity on the key messages (for both differentiation and building trust)
  • clarity on the brand story (both company and client)
  • clarity on what strategies to deploy
  • lots of ideas of pieces of content that could be created (including topics and themes)

Upon completion of the strategy exercise, the above may be transformed into content separately.

What happens after we create an Actionable Marketing Strategy?2022-10-31T13:31:07+10:00


Once your strategy is in place, you can either implement it internally or engage Catalyst Content to assist with its implementation.

The implementation activities include:

  • refreshing the website
  • creating campaigns (articles, social posts, emails)
  • creating journeys / sequences (both nurture and sales)
  • creating graphic templates for social channels (banners, posts, carousels, etc.)
Will I be able to execute the strategy without Catalyst Content?2022-10-31T13:32:20+10:00

Absolutely! Download a sample Actionable Marketing Strategy to know what to expect in the document. It is simple and executable.
