Agile Methodologies for Digital Media Services
Agile is the perfect methodology for dealing with digital marketing uncertainty by focusing on value and risk. The focus is always on delivering value often and early and eliminating risks. It does not matter if your chatbot works if your shopping cart does not. We work with you to prioritize and deliver value.
Eat a Frog in the Morning*
Mark Twain once said, “Eat a live frog first thing in the morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” This is our approach to risk. While many folks try to avoid risk, we approach it head-on. We deal with it and get it out of the way. No surprises, later.

The seven Lean principles are:
- Eliminate waste – We develop sandboxes, prototypes, and MVPs to ensure everyone is on the same track. Our goal is to eliminate rework and deliver value early.
- Build quality in – A quality first approach ensures we build best of class solutions tailored to your needs. We use test-driven development, incremental development, and constant feedback.
- Create knowledge – We do not just drop a finished product in your lap. We offer training and work with your team to facilitate any learning curves so that you can realize the full potential of digital marketing.
- Defer commitment – This Lean principle encourages us to focus on the task at hand rather than spending a lot of time planning years down the road. This allows us to be open to innovations. We continuously collect and analyze information to assist you in making important marketing decisions.
- Deliver fast – We work in two-week sprints with regular opportunities for feedback. We do not believe in creating meetings for meeting sake, but we want you involved in the process to get your buy-in at every step of the way.
- Respect people – It is never about building products – it is about offering your customers a user-friendly solution to meet their needs.
- Optimize the whole – We identify how value flows through your digital marketing and optimize the whole to deliver solutions that Build, Grow, and Convert.
