Growth Marketing

Build a powerful marketing engine that drives revenue and growth. 

Our flagship Growth Marketing program is designed for all types of companies and industries. We help founders, seasoned marketers, and anyone new-to-marketing level up so you can put campaigns into market and know you’ll get results.

Struggling to justify your marketing spend? Not even sure where to spend? You’re not alone.

Why is marketing so hard to get right? Is it the endless array of potential tactics and channels? The challenge of tying spending to revenue? Prospects with full calendars and atomized attention spans so you seemingly have to scream bloody murder to get their attention?

The answer to all of these questions (and many others) is ‘yes, damn it’. Marketing is more challenging than ever before. Which is why it’s also more important than ever before. We’ll help you get it right. And demystify it in the process.

Marketing that drives revenue. That’s the kind you want.

Growth Marketing: From strategic fundamentals to in-market execution.

Build your foundation

Marketing is strategic but many companies just act tactically. That’s why their results are so scattershot and unpredictable.

We’ll help you build a strategic foundation with clarity about offering, target customers, and competitive landscape.

Build your brand

Brand confusion dooms companies. You need to know who you are and why you’ll matter before anything you do in-market will work.

We’ll help you sharpen (or rebuild) positioning, differentiators, and messaging so your brand will sing—and your buyers will sing right back.

Build your campaigns

There are four kinds of lean marketing campaigns. But none of them involve spraying social media ads and blogs into the ether and hoping somebody bites.

We’ll guide you through awareness, conversion, retention, and expansion campaigns—and build a plan to execute.

Program overview

Growth Marketing is our in-depth, in-the-weeds course for founders, seasoned marketers, and anyone new-to-marketing. In 12 powerful weeks, you’ll learn everything you need to know about building a marketing engine—from strategy to tactics.

You’ll work on your business from day one.

With 321, you’ll be working on your marketing right away and putting it into market soon after. We’ll fix what’s not working and build something that will. Then you’ll learn, adjust, and pivot in real-time.

Frequently
asked questions
What support does 321 offer during program delivery?

We’ve been doing this for years, so we know how to make your experience as seamless as possible. We’ve got a top-notch learning management system (which is the online platform that we use to help distribute curriculum materials) and our incredible Customer Success team. They help you set up all the program sessions in your calendar, and support you throughout the course. You also get two small group sessions with 321 experts (and your peers) where you can ask questions and get feedback on your work. Plus, we’ll help you stay accountable – you’ll set your goals and we’ll help you hit them.

How are 321 programs delivered?

For our public programs, we offer a mix of weekly live class instruction and on-demand content during our programs. The live sessions are delivered virtually to create the most flexibility for our participants. Each program also features ‘out-of-class’ work you can do at your convenience. This usually takes 4-6 hours per week. If you want more flexibility in delivery or an immediate start date, we also offer private experiences.

How experienced is 321 in program design?

Very. In fact, we’ve helped over 500 companies transform their marketing and sales over the last decade. We know what works, what doesn’t, and how to make sure our clients get the impact they need. One key learning? You need to work on your business during the course, not after. Theory is important. Results are critical. So, we get you right to work from the first week.

How much do 321 programs cost?

We have a number of pricing options so we can help all sorts of companies with different numbers of attendees—and provide flexible delivery options. You can see pricing by scrolling up on this page to the section titled “Public or private: pick the experience that works for you”. We also offer shorter half-day workshops at different rates, which are listed here.

Do you have any metrics that prove your programs work?

Funny you should ask. Here are the numbers: 80% of our alumni companies reported growth in customers or users. 30% of those reported actually doubling their revenues. We also have an 81 Net Promoter Score, which is world class. And here’s one more: when you take our program, we’re 100% focused on helping your business grow and succeed.

I’m not experienced in marketing or sales. Is this program for me?

Absolutely. We work with everyone from C-level sales and marketing executives to technical founders and experts to junior team members who are just getting their feet underneath them. We try to demystify marketing and sales and get down to the practical things you and your team can do today to make a difference for your business.
