A Marketing Process Built For Business Owners
The Stingray Branding process is built to specifically help business owners take their vision from concept to a real-life brand. The goal of our process is to connect you with our incredible team of professionals. This meeting of the minds allows us to fully understand and implement your vision while also providing you with guidance and suggestions to bring it to life and make it optimal for your goals.
The process consists of these four simple phases:
Meet With Our Team
You meet with our creative marketing professionals to tell us your story, your vision, and your goals. Collecting all of the necessary information at the beginning sets your project up for success. But don’t worry, our team members are subject matter experts in numerous areas that will help guide you through what we need and how we will help you with your specific goals.
Create Action Plan
After the initial onboarding meeting, our team will construct a definitive action plan for your overall goals, timeline, and budget. No matter whether you have $400 or $40,000 our team can craft a plan that will help you reach your business goals. We actively communicate this plan to you, keeping you informed of our timeline so you’re in the loop every step of the way.
Getting To Work
Our team then goes to work on your specific action plan, sending deliverables and maintaining active communication with you through the entire process. It’s important for you to know that we’re working with you so we keep the process active and transparent for you.
Review & Refine
We believe that improvement is a constant process. Once we’ve completed your project, we will meet with you again to review it and take your notes for improvements. This fine-tuning makes sure that we hit the mark you want for your goals while also making timely progress. In the case of recurring marketing efforts, we implement the same type of review process, making sure that you’re involved and informed every single step of the way.
New Business or Idea? We have packages just for you to launch your idea with everything you need!
Branding is the intangible concept of your company and what you do. Multiple marketing pieces go into the cumulative efforts to establish a brand for your company or organization. Our agency is ready to help you to identify your ideal clientele, the marketing tools you will need, and the strategy your company will require to create a recognizable and rememberable brand.
The first steps in creating your brand are ensuring your logo, graphics, and marketing materials all share one unified message and are able to connect with your target audience in a way they understand and want to be connected with.
Your website is the masterpiece of your marketing. It is the central hub for everything about your products, services, and your automation. All of your marketing points back to your website, making it the most valuable resource you often have. It is your credibility display when you are referred, it generates leads from your advertising, it is information for your existing customers, and it is a resource for your employees.
Unfortunately, most businesses and web designers treat websites as though they are just online brochures like we are still in the 1990s. At Stingray Branding, we understand the value and power your website can and will have when you are effectively marketing and advertising. When we build our sites we do them to match your brands, encompassing all that you need to perform at a high potential, and with cost efficiency in mind. We do not use themes or other redundant layouts. All websites are custom designed based on our meeting with you and the needs of your company. If you are ready to have an amazing website that will WOW your customers and generates leads from your marketing dollars, get a FREE marketing review today.

Marketing is what makes it all come together. Effective digital marketing paired with great graphic design and a powerful website results in GROWTH. At Stingray Branding, we understand that marketing requires faith in our abilities, a desire to achieve more, and an understanding of your clientele. When we partner with a great strategy with the correct understanding of your clientele, you will succeed. We utilize a variety of tools to help you reach your perfect customer at the most effective method, producing the highest return on investment possible, all while creating happy customers.
We know that every company doesn’t fit in the same bubble or package. We don’t want you to either. Our team of marketing professionals will help you to identify the best marketing strategy for your business for the short term and long term based on your budgeting and sales goals. Our ultimate satisfaction comes from seeing you succeed and our community improve because of the services and products you provide.

Mobile App Development
Mobile App Process
Mobile Apps are like software on your phone or tablet. They connect users to businesses and organizations to make the user’s life easier and it more convenient to access the products, services, or resources that a business or organization provides. Some apps are stand-alone businesses by themselves, like Uber.
Our team is able to evaluate your business, organization, or app idea to determine the best way to build it. When evaluating a potential app, we base our recommendations on a couple of determining factors.
- Is the app substantially useful to the potential target audience for an initial download?
- Will the app have value or impact to the user after the first use?
- How will the creator of the app generate revenue or impact from the app?
- Can the app be built in a cost-effective method or does it have to be from scratch?
Once we know the answers to these questions, we can make a recommendation to you on the type of app to get developed, either a dashboard app or a native app, and brainstorm suggestions to generate revenue in the app. Our team can also work with you post-app creation to marketing your app to your target audience.
Mobile App Dashboard
App Dashboards are cost-effective, user-friendly options for mobile app development. Our team utilizes the latest in app development technology to provide a native or progressive web app for iOS or Android that provides information, connects to your website, takes online orders, sells merchandise, and more to your app users. These apps can be built in 2-6 weeks and are VERY COST EFFECTIVE. They include a user-friendly dashboard, allowing you to make updates to them easily & more!
Custom Mobile App Development
Have a great idea for a new app? Need to integrate your app with APIs, SDKs, or other automated functionality? Our team is able to build mobile apps in multiple languages to utilize all of the resources that exist for creating an incredible user experience. We build apps with Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Geofencing, Apple Kit, and many more services to bring your vision to reality and to provide substantial value to the technology market. Custom app development starts with a wireframe/prototype created by our team and then moves into coding/development. Book an appointment with our team today to discuss your new app idea!
The Stingray Branding Difference
Working with a marketing company isn’t a one-size fits all endeavor. Every company has different needs, budgets, and visions. Often a business owner will work with multiple marketing companies, each of them specializing in a given area. You may have a website company that builds your custom website. A graphic designer, copywriter, social media expert, Google Ads expert, strategist, a couple of assistants, a photographer, and possibly even an app developer to fill out every little part of your marketing.
