You deserve unbiased, expert analysis and clear performance reporting on your current strategy from a deeply experienced team.
Most small businesses need more marketing expertise than they can afford. Plus, the increasingly technical marketing landscape makes it even harder for non-marketers to stay abreast of what their marketers are doing. Unfortunately, this also makes it easier for small businesses to fall prey to distractions and snake oil.
RISE builds custom, real-time independent dashboards to give you a birds-eye, unbiased view of all your key performance indicators, so you will always know whether your marketing efforts are working—24/7!
Leverage the RISE enterprise-level agency reporting software and CMO-level guidance—all for a flat low monthly fee.
You can hire a CMO for $100-350k a year, or put the same level of experience to work for you along with real-time dashboards that give true insight into your business—all for one low-cost monthly subscription of $500!
Most businesses rely on a single mid-level generalist that has to wear many hats and juggle multiple priorities that require vastly different skill sets. Solopreneurs are not only tasked with all this on the marketing front—they’re managing sales, operations, and accounting, too! Both benefit greatly from this affordable, added support.

At minimum, RISE will need administrative Google Analytics access for your website to begin your reporting program. Based on the custom KPIs requested, we may also require top-level administrative access to Google Ads, social media platforms, and sales tracking.
RISE securely holds and manages high-level access to digital properties and platforms for many companies across North America and holds itself to the highest standards of confidentiality and cyber-security as is expected of any reputable agency or firm.
As part of our independent reporting, RISE will communicate to leadership the names of all those who currently have access to any accounts to which we are provided administrative access. This is critical, as it is extremely common for there to be security lapses in this area, and regular access audits should be conducted.
At the conclusion of our relationship, RISE always works to ensure that a partner or owner (or at minimum, two high-level staff members) have top-level access to any online properties or accounts before instructing clients on how to remove us, or removing ourselves.
We at RISE always advocate total transparency between leaders and their marketers. While it is true that some marketers are wary of independent third party reporting, we find that A-Players don’t shy from accountability. Even good marketers are often tempted to “float” the best looking data to the top and hide poor performance in more critical areas. To make wise decisions, you are best protected when you separate marketing operations and reporting.
In truth, the career marketer is well aware of how much of their actual marketing time is typically lost to reporting demands and chasing down moving goal posts. Clear KPIs and independent reporting free up marketers to actually market, while clarifying for them which priorities are being measured by the C-suite so everyone is literally on the same DataCloud “page.” Not only will you save significant team hours with this low-cost subscription, you may likely find your team happily welcomes the freedom from the tedium of reporting.
In addition, we frequently are able to validate to leadership where external factors outside the marketer’s control are coming into play—often these very real factors may be seen as an “excuse” when coming from within. The vast majority of marketers we measure see us an an ally, resource, and partner.
Most CEOs will need to work with their existing marketing teams to provide RISE the needed access for Analytics. Even if not, you should note that anyone with access to a platform will generally still be able to see who else has access. It is increasingly common for multiple agencies and/or staff members to have access to such properties. It’s true it may be a red flag if there is significant pushback, but there’s no need to jump to this conclusion.
One final note, RISE is a rather unique marketing firm in that we are focused heavily on training, mentorship, and content production for internal marketers. While we do offer full-service marketing programs, we are extremely non-competitive and have worked collaboratively as a fellow team member with many agencies and internal staff members as an extension of our clients’ organizations.
As a result of our “trailguide” approach, we are not typically a competitive threat to any internal generalist or external agency who is actively managing the full spectrum of digital and traditional campaigns, and it rarely takes long for any internal marketer or sister agency to recognize this and work with us to create a win-win relationship.
