Most companies want to grow. Some want to grow aggressively. However in a digital-first world, where companies are to trying attract an empowered modern buyer in the right context, the rules for competing have changed drastically.
SP Home Run offers the Digital Gap Audit (DGA) program for small- and medium-sized businesses that need help identifying the specific gaps in their business and digital strategy that are holding their companies back from reaching their goals.
Beginning with the release of the original iPhone, there’s been a dramatic shift in power from sellers to buyers. In most cases, today’s modern buyer has vastly different preferences compared to as recently as five years ago -- and now finds immediate answers to their questions using tools like Google, Bing, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Siri, Alexa, and Cortana.
Mainstream adoption of search engines, social media, and mobile computing has severely disrupted traditional go-to-market playbooks. In the past, prospects would speak with your sales team when they were 10% to 20% of the way through their buyer’s journey. Today, as much as 70% or more of decision-making is already complete before your company is even aware of a potential opportunity. This is a huge problem for old-school small businesses. But it’s also a great opportunity for those that are able to get found early by the right people, in the right places, at the right time, and in the right context.
Is your company prepared? Or is it living in the past?

The Digital Gap Audit covers ~140 metrics across 16 different areas of digital readiness:
The Digital Gap Audit program includes three one-hour sessions spread over three weeks:
For clients located in South Florida, the sessions are normally held at SP Home Run’s office or the client’s office.
For clients outside of South Florida, sessions are delivered remotely, usually via GoToMeeting.
To help clients get the most value from their Digital Gap Audit investment, clients are required to complete an online assessment prior to Session 1 and Session 2. Please allow approximately 25 to 30 minutes to complete each assessment.
