our process at markit

our process

We're looking for a partnership, not a vendor/client relationship. We work alongside you, as a department of your organization. Your goals are our goals and we exist to provide real business solutions to your company.

We work closely with our clients, getting to know their ins and outs. We help you define your goals and establish a marketing vision to reach those goals. Next, we determine a strategy to execute the vision and create messages, identify mediums, develop appropriate collateral for execution, and track our results.

a true partnership is a rare thing to come by when working with other companies. markit has always given me the impression that they really view us as a partner and strive to give you that in-house marketing feel. their counseling and out-of-the-box ideas have helped to boost our image and portray to our customers a clearer vision of the supplier we will be for them. over the years this group has always gone above and beyond to learn not only about our company, but also the market we serve. they do a great job of bringing on talent that is knowledgeable, creative, passionate, and ambitious. i sincerely look at them as coworkers and feel they are an invaluable asset to our company! shelly topness - valley design

a little about us.

We don't work with every business. It's not always a good fit. We are here to make a difference and help you achieve measurable results. Marketing is about more than just promotion and making things pretty. Our design rivals with the best; it's our planning and review of your entire business that make the difference.

If you're looking to reach higher profitability, launch a new product, make waves with a new market, expand on your growth, increase top line sales, open a new location/warehouse/facility, we will help you from planning to implementation. We address all 4 'P's' in marketing (product, price, place, and promotion) in an effort to help your business reach its revenue and related goals.

We've developed a vow which we commit to you. We call it our mantra:

to provide brilliant, in-depth marketing solutions, moving you from good to great in a creative, fun, energetic atmosphere.

                        	markit can increase your revenue!

strategy drives our design.

We don't sell marketing services: we get results.

We work closely with select clients to become an integrated member of the team, measuring our success on our clients' success.

                            expersise to the table

we bring expertise to the table.

And our clients bring theirs. We offer objective, skilled opinions and focus on achieving results.

Sometimes it's hard to see the forest through the trees - we fill the gaps to allow our clients to work on their business, not just in their business.

                        	reaching your goals every day

strategic implementation.

From strategic and marketing plans to day-to-day implementation, we work with you to establish a solid foundation to reach your goals.

Oh, and we will reach those goals.

results are everything to us. let's check some out.

the people

At the end of the day, every business is a collection of people. At markit, we have an exceptional group of individuals with a vast and diverse set of skills that help us push each other, and our clients, to ever greater heights. Meet the markit team:
