What is Full-Stack Marketing

Why you need it and what’s in it for you

Ninety-nine percent of advertising doesn’t sell much of anything

— David Ogilvy

Legendary Mad Man, David Ogilvy is revered as a north star for many of us in the marketing business. His candour and courage stand the test of time. What was true in 1955 is still true today, but the depth and breadth of tools and channels has increased wildly since the plucky Englishman built his juggernaut.

What is a Full-Stack Marketer?

At Sherpa, Full-Stack Marketing starts with a mindset. Full-Stack Marketers have an intense focus on fundamental marketing principles, ones founded in a rich and varied amalgam of experiences – all gained through decades of relentlessly pursuing the best ways to produce and prove positive results for our clients.

Full-Stack Formula

Today’s CMO is just as likely to approve a SaaS/IT solution as she is to adapt her strategy to changing market conditions. She operates at the nexus of Marketing, Sales and IT. So does Sherpa. Our team of marketing generalists and specialists understand that the days of departmental silos are so “2019”.

A Full-Stack Marketing agency doesn’t just focus on Branding and Brand Awareness, it looks at every aspect of Marketing, incorporating the best of the multichannel digital and analogue worlds with the goal of growing a perpetual, balanced ecosystem.

Full-Stack marketers know how to figure out what they need to create… before they start creating.

Technology is the great enabler - and powerful equalizer, but at Sherpa, our Full-Stack team starts with captivating storytelling.

Data Driven Communicators

If over 94% of purchase intent <Forrester> is informed, in some way, through the ability to find and consume content on the internet, then surely as marketers we must craft content that can stop, hold and compel its audience. Our team is built with great communicators that know how to use data and analytics to uncover what content you need to create and in which channel you need to be present to meet customers and prospects in their moment of intent.

We are Generalists AND Experts

Full-Stackers think about how to appear for, capture, nurture and convert those who know you and those who don’t.

Today’s customer journey is a tangled mess of analogue and digital experiences. The most common beacon or termination point for a customer or prospect, is your website. A great proportion of purchase intent is influenced on your website and a Full-Stack marketer knows that there can be no dead ends for your users and that great customer experiences are a seamless fusion of what the website visitor needs and what you need.

Full-Stack Marketers have many arrows in their quiver, they are agnostic about the arrows they use (so long as it’s the right arrow for the task and that the arrow hits its mark).


On Target on Time

Today’s tools are delivered over the wire and hosted in the cloud. There are new and better SaaS options every day, but our Full-Stackers have the broad marketing fundamentals that spark fire and the depth to know which tools should be pulled together, customized and integrated into your marketing technology stack.

Explained differently, a Sherpa has a solid foundation in marketing upon which they can build working strategies and tactics by choosing the right tools and materials. Whether it’s a “custom home” or an “industrial complex”, our team members know how to construct measurable, elegant, effective and durable marketing solutions.

Whether it’s B2B or B2C, our Full-Stack Marketers can take seemingly incongruent tools, tactics and messages and expertly align them into a beautiful, cohesive “stack” of interconnected building blocks that drive our customer’s success.

You want more. More of what great marketing is supposed to deliver.

Many marketers and agencies have failed to fulfill the promise of marketing. This failure created mistrust and tension between you, the customer, and your service provider(s).

Sherpa, the sum of the Full-Stack

Imagine having a business partner fully vested in your success, a partner that’s equally comfortable talking about the LAMP Stack, Python, Microsoft Azure or SalesForce APIs with your IT department as they are speaking with your VP Sales about setting and tracking KPIs through Databox or Power BI.

What about a partner agency that creates award winning communications that are equally effective on a billboard or an Instagram post? Think about having a team of over 40 highly motivated, passionate marketing professionals that care as much about lowering your cost of acquisition as they do writing great headlines.

Full-stack marketing is the application of the sum of the Sherpa team’s skills, experiences, processes, and the appropriate tools… all to apply tried and tested approaches to your unique situation.

It means that Sherpas know what works …or we can figure out what doesn’t and why.

As a real partner in your business, we know that you are accountable for every marketing dollar you spend - and that together, we must be stewards of that money.
