They say it takes 6-12 months for content marketing and SEO to “start working.”
Here’s the problem:
When you ask most content and digital marketing agencies what results you can expect after 6-12 months, they dance around the question. (We know because we do competitor intelligence on them).
Oh sure, these full-service and content marketing agencies will tell you all kinds of activities to keep your dollar:
Sounds like marketing tactical hell, doesn’t it?
But when you ask for results and KPIs, many agencies won’t give you a specific number. Or if they do, they’ll sell their marketing efforts on improving vanity metrics like website traffic.
Sure, later-stage startups can optimize for high-quality content that improves brand awareness. But they have larger marketing teams, influencer partnerships, and bigger budgets. You can’t afford to play their game and expect to win.
As an early-stage startup, you need to make sure your marketing efforts are well invested.
At Growth Ramp, we optimize every piece of new content to bring you more potential customers from search engine optimization. Because it doesn’t matter how engaging your content is if it’s not relevant content.
Bottom line? A successful content marketing campaign must tie to your business goals: making you more money.
Market research is the most ignored area of growth within startups. Yet it’s fundamental if you want to dominate an existing market.

The reason they say competition is for losers is because you’re not here to compete. You’re here to dominate. To take first prize, while everyone else is chomping at the bit for table scraps.

CEO of Decibite
Before we started with Growth Ramp, we had no idea who our target customer was. Marketing has been a frustrating process for us at Decibite.
Growth Ramp interviewed our customers, did market research, showed us where we were, and who we wanted to help. They then executed on the strategy to capitalize and appeal to that market. This was a huge game-changer. Growth Ramp did everything that we were wanting to do and more. This was a huge weight off my shoulders and helped me avoid burnout.
They got us back on track and their efforts have pushed us further in one month than a year on our own. Seriously, I wish there were six of you.
