Weidert Group operates as an Agile organization, utilizing a set of specific processes designed to ensure that time, effort, and budget are spent in the most efficient way, every day.
Learn more about Agile here.
The various tools used for inbound programs are incredibly robust and nuanced, integrating and automating all components of your program. As you learn the tools, you may be tempted to make “simple” changes – place a new image on a landing page template or making a quick update to paid ad copy, for example.
We recommend, though, that any changes to program deliverables be made by Weidert Group. Our familiarity with the tools has shown us over the years that even minor modifications to one discrete area within a tool can affect others, and has the potential to result in costly rework on our part (“fixing” a problem you may inadvertently set in motion). We ask that if you feel modifications need to be made, you chat with your Consultant first to understand the implications and who is best suited to make them.
Together, the client and Weidert Group are responsible for setting a realistic, achievable and effective inbound marketing strategy. The client must ensure that the strategy is designed to achieve specific goals by providing transparency into its business and performance.
Weidert Group is responsible for responding quickly to all client requests. The client is responsible for providing appropriate time to fulfill the request accurately and with quality.
All work done for the client must be reviewed by the client prior to publication. Both Weidert Group and the client must adhere to the timeline in order for the work to be completed on time (and on budget).
Like Reviews, approvals from the client must be provided on the dates identified in order for work to be completed according to schedule and budget.
We archive all client assets and work on our servers (which have redundant files in the cloud), though larger video files are kept on our servers for 1 year. After that, we’ll either put your video footage on a drive and turn over to you, or we can delete them.
Both the client and Weidert Group should make themselves available to one other, offering direct and honest feedback and engaging in discussions on an ongoing basis.
To help us improve our processes and provide the best experience for you, we'll send very brief satisfaction surveys after key milestones, such as the kickoff call, creation of the Inbound Plan & Playbook, and launch of a website project.
For both the client and Weidert Group to avoid the frustration and cost associated with rework, the approval process must be streamlined. The best way to do that is for the client to consolidate all feedback from their team before handing it to Weidert Group (that way, we’re only making one set of changes). This will speed completion and ensure that there are no budget overruns.
If a client asks us to incorporate additional tactics into the program, the budget must be reset. If these are unrelated to the ongoing program (if, for example, a client decides to do a new tradeshow booth), this will be estimated and a separate invoice submitted.
Every client’s program cost is based on the points/price allocated to the specific tactics that make up your program. Requests outside the program require separate quotes.
Typically, you’re billed based on the deliverables agreed to in your Roadmap, split evenly over each month of the roadmap.
Occasionally, though, unplanned projects pop up, and those we bill separately.
For large projects (like websites) we typically bill for progress or other arrangements made with the client. We sometimes find it efficient to “work ahead” on program components (writing March blogs in February, for example) and will discuss billing for these situations with you.

We created a Service Catalog that identifies that effort for every type of project we do for our clients; this makes it easier for us to assign employees the right amount of work every week relative to their capacities.
Understanding our capacity also made it possible to provide better transparency to clients about how our time is spent on their behalf. Clients have access to our Service Catalog where they can see the relative points pricing of most of the work we do for them. That means they can start looking at budget trade-offs without our help, looking at re-deploying their points budgets differently to address unanticipated needs.

HubSpot Renewals Pro-Tip:
The number of contacts you have in your HubSpot portal is tracked in real-time by HubSpot to make sure you’re not going over the limit associated with your Marketing Contact tier level.
If you go over your Marketing Contacts limit, you’ll immediately be charged for the next contact tier level; there is no down-tiering until your next HubSpot contract renewal, so it’s important that you actively manage the number in the CRM to stay under the limit and avoid additional charges.
While you, as a HubSpot customer, are responsible for maintaining the right number of Marketing Contacts for your tier level (because the license purchase is between you and HubSpot), the Weidert Group team is always eager and available to offer recommendations on managing the appropriate level of Marketing Contacts and ensuring the integrity of your data.
We use Databox to gather a variety of data from a number of sources (primarily HubSpot & Google Analytics) and make it available in real-time dashboard views.
These dashboards are then utilized to help automate some of the monthly and quarterly metrics reporting our team provides. We also supplement these reports with specific insights and data from different HubSpot dashboards.
Lucky Orange is a tool that tracks visitors’ movements on your website. This tells us a great deal about what’s working (and what’s not) on your site, what’s of interest to different people, and where areas of improvement are.
