Meet the marketing consultant who gets where you are, and who can help you go where you want to be.

From zero to $1.5 million in annual sales, from one part-time employee to twenty, when Dave Kohtala says he’s been in your shoes as a small business owner, he’s not kidding. The victories, the defeats, the sheer exhaustion – he’s lived it. That’s why he understands how desperately you’re searching for a better way to market your business.

You need a marketing system, a proven way to bring new business to your business… on demand. With the right system, you can increase your sales, cut your expenses, and become more profitable than you imagined was possible.

Proven, You Say?

Absolutely proven – and Strategy First Marketing’s 110% money-back guarantee eliminates your risk entirely. It’s the kind of promise few marketing firms would dare to make. But Dave’s background, training, and passion for systematic marketing combine to give him a level of certainty you can bank on.

There’s a catch, of course. We have to be a good fit to work together.

When Dave was in retail, he realized something important. Some customers were delightful to serve; others were not. Some recognized the value of the products he sold and were eager to buy from him; others were only hunting bargains. He understood that what he was really selling was solutions – and his success came from providing those solutions to his ideal customers.

It’s the same as a marketing consultant. By working only with clients who are a supremely good fit, Strategy First Marketing can guarantee their complete delight.

Attract More Ideal Customers

Your ideal customers want the solutions only you can provide, too. By identifying them and serving them well, you’ll claim your rightful position as a leader in your industry. In that role, you can’t help but become more profitable.

“More profitable” sure sounds better than what’s happening right now, doesn’t it? You’re working harder, making less money, always feeling like you’re spread too thin, and doing everything.

You know you need a smarter marketing plan. You know you need help putting that plan into action. You also know that you just don’t have the bandwidth to do it yourself.

If you’re ready to put a stop to the madness of doing it all yourself – and finally start getting the results you’ve been killing yourself to try to get, it’s time for a proven system that yields measurable results. No hokus pokus. No “flavor of the month” marketing tactics. Just a strategy that makes sense and delivers tangible results.

It Won’t Happen Overnight, But It Will Happen

Dave’s been where you are, and he remembers that feeling of longing for a win. If you work with Strategy First Marketing, it won’t be long before you see the kind of results that free you up to concentrate on other facets of your business and life. You’ll become more profitable. You’ll get more ideal prospects. Your phone will ring more – and it will all translate into more sales, loyal customers, and referrals.

We’d love to free you up to do what you do best. We’re in it for the long-term with our clients – and if you think we might make a great team together, we should have a conversation.

We’re ready. Are you?
