Advanced Marketing Is NOT About Learning Yet Another Strategy

The missing key to success in marketing, the one that will

  • supercharge your career, 
  • give you an unfair advantage among your peers,
  • and build your confidence to succeed at the highest levels being able to create a profitable marketing blueprint.

Marketing Blueprint Machine

That profitable blueprint is called the Marketing Plan Formula.

The Marketing Plan Formula is the blueprint for a business, providing a detailed roadmap for success. Without a plan, a business is just speculating, shooting in the dark. Guessing at such critical elements as target audience, messaging, offer development, competitive domination, marketing strategies, resource allocation, and, of course, profitability. The result can be devastating for a business.

Without a marketing blueprint, you are guessing. And guessing is expensive.

So what is the Marketing Plan Formula?

After 35+ years on the front lines of marketing, starting several multi-million dollar businesses, Russell Lundstrom finally uncovered the process of Reverse Engineering a business to craft the unique and optimal marketing for that business to grow and scale.

This proprietary framework is a step-by-step process that gives professional marketers the skills to create and then execute a marketing blueprint that is profitable - with any business, in any industry.

The secret is that the marketing blueprint is Reverse Engineered out of the unique business. 

It has been tested, repeatedly, in every market, with hundreds of companies, and the Marketing Plan Formula works.

Want proof? Book a call with one of our Marchitect specialists and we will walk your business through the process and develop your own unique blueprint.

The Marketing Plan Formula Is NOT Another Strategy

The difference between being just a marketer and a CMO is simple.

You are able to take the limited resources in a business and get new customers, profitably. There is no room for just guessing, throwing something against the wall and hoping it works. You have to know.

The CMO is responsible. The buck stops here for marketing. No excuses.

Earning the Marchitect.Pro Certification gives you the skills and framework to fast-track your career to the top of the marketing world.

Not only do I consider Russell a mentor, I consider him a true friend and I take his advice very seriously...

Russell has been an incredible mentor to me the past few years. He has given me amazing advice and guidance from the inception of my company to navigating through growth and expansion in the CPG industry. At each stage of my business, Russell has made helpful introductions and connections, from logistics and packaging to online marketers to financing solutions or whatever the current need, he always provides great resources.

Russell has helped me tremendously by way of introductions to great contacts for my business. For example, Russell introduced me to someone to spearhead Amazon sales for a product, and the introduction was a great fit at the right time and it led to a large increase in sales on Amazon and knowledge of how to work that channel. Russell continues to be successful at connecting me to the right people at each stage of my business.

One of our core values at my company is that we only work with nice people. Not only do I consider Russell a mentor, I consider him a true friend and I take his advice very seriously. I'm grateful to know him and would most definitely recommend him to other entrepreneurs!

I learned all of the tools needed to begin thinking through and executing on these basic tactics with guidance and support.

Before working with Russell, I had very limited knowledge in an integrated strategy and approach for sales and marketing. I came to the table with a creative mindset, but lacked the tools and knowledge behind initiatives such as landing pages, inbound lead generation and the fundamentals of good copywriting (specifically headlines).

During my time with Russell, I learned all of the tools needed to begin thinking through and executing on these basic tactics with guidance and support. This broadened my perspective into the fundamental skills needed to bring on a team member responsible for these initiatives. I would have made a HUGE mistake in hiring for either a sales or marketing position before having a basic understanding of marketing, or sales process in place to set this team member up for success.

Now, when I'm ready to eventually take a step back, I will know exactly how to give direction to an Account Executive with a thorough and well formulated process for outbound lead generation and relationship building.

Russell Lundstrom is an incredible resource and source of knowledge for business marketing.

He has an incredible ability to explain key concepts and techniques that make them easier to understand and execute. After learning from him this past year, we have completely revamped our website content, and have renewed confidence in our marketing strategy.

I would highly recommend Russell to any new or seasoned entrepreneurs alike...

Russell has been a mentor of mine for a few years now.

He has a wealth of entrepreneurial knowledge and personal experience that has helped me to grow immensely over these last two years.

We have been formally working together for the past two years, but I have known Russell for about six years now. He has always been a great resource, connector, and person.

Russell has helped guide me through a few challenges as my company has grown, most recently he helped me navigate a potential merger I was exploring.

The most is being more strategic in how I make money and how much I charge.

[After working with Russell] now I have a really good strategy for it [marketing]. I am really focused on it and I know what to do. The most is being more strategic in how I make money and how much I charge.

He’s one of the most dedicated professionals I’ve ever worked with. The guy doesn’t back down until he achieves results...

I’ve had the privilege of knowing Russell for the past 6 years. I’ve worked with him on a variety of projects during that time. He’s one of the most dedicated professionals I’ve ever worked with.

The guy doesn’t back down until he achieves results. From dealing with Google penalties to creating complex sales funnels, Russell not only covers every detail from start to finish but he does so in such a delicate way with an emphasis on the user experience (rare to find).

Russell is a professional who has all his ducks in order. His in depth knowledge makes him a great asset in the field of deep dive surveys, advanced sales funnels, and conversion optimization.

Working with Russell really helped us

[Before working with Russell] We fumbled around and did the best we could. I learned we needed a system, a way to think about what our clients need and how to market to those needs, and now we have clarity around the direction to focus our efforts.

We don't have an endless marketing budget so we had to pick a lane. Working with Russell really helped us do that.

Opened my eyes to the power of new and alternative marketing methodologies that I wasn’t aware of prior....

approach to business?

Methodical, dedicated, and with deep conviction.

I recommend other entrepreneurs contact Russell if they could use help – especially those with Internet businesses or broader businesses that design out of the box thinking about marketing, demographics, and strategies.

I would totally recommend Russell if you're looking for help with your business...

I have known Russell for about 5 years. In that time I have had the pleasure of working with him -- he has helped me to hone down my audience and who are my ideal customers.

It was a great experience. Russel is committed to the outcomes and very knowledgeable about all areas of business which is so helpful when trying to see the big picture.

Russell is super sharp, attentive, and easy going. In addition to shoring up the fundamentals, Russell is looking to push into new areas and go where the puck is going... not where it has been. I would totally recommend Russell if you're looking for help with your business.

How is the program structured and what topics are covered?

The program is structured to give you the information you need, when you need it. 

We believe in simplicity. Marketing is complex enough, you do not need us to complicate it for you. Each section of the training is delivered in bite-sized pieces. We love the old adage...

How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time.

We have a great deal of information and processes to share with you, but if you can't consume them in a way that benefits you then it isn't worthwhile.

Please see the program syllabus for an overview of the topics covered.

The best way to understand the subject matter is to think about what are the essential building blocks of a profitable marketing strategy. Those are the building blocks you will learn with the Marchitect.Pro program.

How does the program adapt to changes in the marketing industry or market trends?

This is one of the great challenges that the Marchitect.Pro program solves.

The business world is constantly changing. Every marketing channel is evolving on a daily basis. New strategies are constantly being developed. Marketing is the one profession where it is literally impossible to even scratch the surface on learning.

This is why the Marchitect.Pro Certification Program is so valuable.

You will be learning the fundamental building blocks of all successful marketing. We call it the Periodic Table of Marketing.

These are the essential skills and elements of marketing that when developed can then be used in any channel, any strategy, any time, any place.

It removes the feeling of uncertainty, of not knowing the latest, greatest marketing secret hack.

Instead, you will be able to use your marketing blueprint to focus your efforts and resources in only those strategies which are most profitable.

Less waste, more results.

Being a Certified Marchitect.Pro elevates you into timeless and borderless value. You will be able to help businesses grow. 

What are the job prospects and salary expectations for those who complete the certification program?

The difference between a Marchitect.Pro and the average marketer is you know how to solve a problem.

Most marketing work today is centered around knowing a skill that is commoditized. 

For example, SEO. 

The first consideration is that you can never know all there is to know about SEO. You might have experience that is better than most, but the channel itself is constantly changing. You are forever on the hamster wheel of keeping up. 

And the penalty if you don't? You will not get the results.

And making this even more hazardous to your career, SEO is commodity work. As soon as your employer or client hears of the next great SEO agency or guru they will be off following them. There goes your value and your work.

The difference is with the Marchitect.Pro Certification you will be the professional that guides the business to understanding which strategies are most profitable, how to maximize them, and leading the entire business to profitability.

That is the true evergreen career. And limitless in potential.

The different between the highest performing, highest paid and just being a marketer.
