How does it work?


The Loop

Here’s how we work

Loop150x150Plan, act, observe, analyze, results, and repeat using new insights to improve. We’ll start off with a discussion of your needs and form a plan. From there, we refine until we get results. It seems like every discipline that works with people has a loop like this. Not everything works the first time. What once worked, sometimes stops working. It can feel like a slippery slope, it can feel like a treadmill. Gusset Beard helps you get traction.


Know what you want to do and why

Gusset Beard can draw on a diverse planning background including interviewing, legal problem solving, grant writing, administration, and coordination, marketing campaign planning, mediation and psychiatric crises skills. Whether the situation requires an immediate response to an unexpected problem or a long-term strategy, we can step in beside you and help.


Begin with the user and the message

Clapperboard150x150Need an inbound marketing strategy? Need help building an audience or managing conversations on social media? Need to make it all work together? Gusset Beard can help. We write for the web and social media. We do social media strategy, community management, and content curation to keep your social media properties fresh and active. We can draw on design experience ranging from logos to posters to websites.


Know you market: customers and competitors

Glasses150x150What kind of information do you need to find or to understand? Gusset Beard has someone with the research experience you need. One of the biggest mistakes businesses make is failing to use all the information that social media provides about their markets: trends, competitors, customers, etc. We do social media listening and analysis. We also have experience with marketing surveys, legal research, psychological testing, and focus groups, or custom software for analyzing complex data (even in cluttered, old web formats). We can get the information you need.


Learn from what works — and what doesn’t

Show who you really are! Gusset Beard focuses on persuasion and resolution with integrity. With persuasion and crisis problem-solving experience that ranges from the psychiatric unit to the proverbial courthouse steps, Gusset Beard can get results. We build observation and measurement in from the start, so you know what’s working. You don’t have to fly blind.


Improve and improve again

Spiral150x150Well, we’ve made it this far, why not go again. Gusset Beard can also help you implement part of a strategy already in progress. Need help with some additional social media content? Need someone to monitor your accounts? Need someone to help you identify key people to follow? Get off the treadmill and onto the loop.
