Who is at the Table?

The Sound Press team does a fair amount of strategic planning. And given that some of this planning certainly involves $MM we need to do our best due diligence to get it right. Who are we working with in all this? Well, that’s a good question about who is at the table.

Ideally, as we are invited to a seat at the table, we have some C-Suite executives. While company structures differentiate of course, when we talk about 6-7 figure projects, we usually have a C-Suite executive involved. Especially where the hope and expectation is that such initiatives will yield 7 figures plus profit margins.

There are different project planning stages with different individuals, but generally, around the table through the course of a project, we have a Project Manager, or COO, a finance person or CFO, a product manager where applicable, a sales manager or head of sales, an IT relationship such as an IT Manager/Director, or CTO, and a GM or owner or CEO/President. And it’s true, we often see a highly paid consultant in some special discipline involved.

Our goal is to always meet or exceed expectations, but that doesn’t happen by luck or accident. In fact, one business scenario we often see is the “tipping point to profitability” – for example – that place where either a SKU count offering or a marketing investment trends out the ROI positivity leadership is looking for.

Consider who has a seat at your table. The combination of financial backing, goal and vision backing, approvals, and more are often so unique for each company. Find the most efficacious pathway for your business to grow that machines your company’s culture, processes, structure, and vision.

What Distributors are doing right

The Importance of Analytics Reporting for Distributors

In the competitive world of automotive distribution, analytics reporting stands out as an indispensable tool for success. Distributors play a critical role in connecting manufacturers with consumers, and in this interconnected digital age, leveraging data-driven insights is key to staying ahead.

Whether you’re tracking websites, email campaigns, or social media statistics, analytics reporting empowers automotive distributors to measure the effectiveness of their online strategies. Tracking metrics such as website traffic, conversion rates, and customer engagement provides valuable feedback on the performance of digital campaigns. This data-driven approach allows distributors to refine their strategies in real-time, optimizing resource allocation and ensuring maximum impact.

Most importantly, analytics reporting offers distributors a deep understanding of consumer behavior. By analyzing data on social media interactions, online searches, and other digital channels, distributors can tailor their marketing messages to resonate with target audiences. This personalized approach not only enhances customer engagement but also contributes to brand loyalty in an increasingly competitive market.

In the digital realm, where the online presence of distributors directly influences consumer decisions, analytics reporting is a necessity for those who aim to navigate the digital landscape effectively, build lasting customer relationships, and drive success in the competitive automotive distribution arena.

At Your Service Roofing

At Your Service Roofing came to us with the need to bring them into the digital world in an effort to dive consumer retail business to their roofing company, which has historically relied on insurance leads via door knocking and referrals. Prior to Sound Press, AYS’s digital footprint was non-existent with an extremely antiquated website that provided zero results. Sound Press updated their site to a modern best practice site in design and function. Additionally, we have been working on ongoing SEO, which has generated first page and #1 rankings on valuable keywords in key geographic regions as well as SEM and Social Ads to drive new customers to their business.

“Working with the team at Sound Press has been great for us all around. Not only great people to work with but super professional and deliver great results for our business. When we first began looking at scaling up our roofing business growth, we knew web and digital components were going to be super important, but we didn’t know how to pursue all that. Adam, Rob, Josh, and the team at Sound Press took time to understand our unique business model and built a plan that would allow us to grow involving website efforts, branding work, getting our great customer reviews, and doing some digital advertising. We’re super happy with the results they’ve delivered, and thankful for the business partner we have in them.”

-Chris Zimmerman, Owner, At Your Service Roofing
