Be Light Years Ahead in 90 Days.
At 26 Characters, we can plan your entire content marketing strategy, including mapping out the next 12 months of your content, in 90 days. We can be that efficient because we choose to dispense with the fluff that expands and eventually bogs down so many marketing projects.
We come in prepared to work, intent on learning your key objectives and turning them into an effective strategy. Instead of presentations, buzzwords and jargon designed to impress, we move right into a proven planning process driven by what you want to achieve and designed to set you up for success.
You guide, you direct, we do the heavy lifting. The finished product is 100% yours. We’ll even use your company PowerPoint template so you can take credit for the work. Because we’re not interested in credit. We’re interested in results.
Without focus from the start, you can get pulled in unproductive directions. We start by asking "what marketing or business problems are we trying to solve?"
Engaging the right people at the right time is critical to development an implementation of your plan.

We've learned that roadmapping is the best way to get alignment. Beyond having your leadership team on board, here are additional reasons why we like to roadmap.
First, we roll up our sleeves and do actual work. Second, you get a sense of our expertise and if we're a good fit. Third, you get to show progress since our work is brought to life in a professionally designed infographic.
We use infographics because it's a high level summary of the approach and it gets people excited. It's also a subtle nod to the power of content marketing.
Roadmapping is a 2 week process and costs $3,500. If you move forward with a strategy project, the cost of roadmapping is credited towards your strategy fee. Learn more about how Roadmapping works.
