Integrated Strategy and Execution Service
Navigating Demanding Choices
A strategy without execution is a blueprint without a builder, a promise without fulfillment. Likewise, execution without strategy is like sailing without a compass – all movement, no direction. Such disjointed approaches can lead to wasted resources, missed opportunities, and business stagnation. The significant advantage of a solution that marries strategy with execution is access to a dedicated partner who crafts a roadmap and undertakes the journey alongside you and your business.
If your digital enterprise specializes in professional services, subscriptions, e-commerce, or LMS, you’ve found the right harbor.
Fountain City’s true potency is harnessed by coupling our strategic services with our guided implementation process. You receive regular strategic guidance, consultation, and navigational road mapping, plus a hand-selected task force to propel the success of campaigns we collaboratively identify. This union of strategy and action unlocks your business potential, navigating the currents of growth, one milestone at a time.

Holistic Goal Analysis
Empowering Success Through Strategic Task Breakdown and Execution
We guide our clients through the process of breaking down their objectives into manageable tasks and oversee their completion.
Once we’ve defined your business or personal goals, we further dissect them into several sub-areas to identify the necessary steps for achieving your desired outcome.
The wheel diagram shown here divides these steps into four sectors: Customer, Product/Service, Process, and Team. In each sector, we examine the necessary changes, opportunities, and improvements required to bring your goal to fruition.
Working in partnership with you, we dedicate our time and expertise to execute and fulfill one or more projects aimed at achieving specific objectives within these areas. As we complete milestones, we continuously review the results and monitor our progress towards realizing your ultimate goals.
Our approach combines in-house expertise and external partnerships to effectively achieve our clients’ goals.

What might my roadmap look like?
We’ve completed our initial work with you to identify one or more goals that we want to achieve. These goals are then mapped out against constraints like time and money, and we then sequence out initiatives over several months into a road map.
After collaboration with you, your roadmap might look something like this:
|Month 1||Strategic Planning: Establish customer profiles, journeys, brand voice, target marketing channels, review competitors and finalize the requirements for the new website.|
|Month 2||Web development: Map, design and write content for new website|
|Month 3||Web development: Finish building out website, final testing and release.|
|Month 4||Marketing: Pivot resources into a marketing campaign to reach your target audience|
|Month 5||Sales: Review success of marketing campaign, review all lifecycle metrics of your customers and adapt to the results|
|Month 6||Customer feedback: Conduct user testing, integrate feedback into the website and marketing campaigns to improve the next cycle|
|Month 7||Strategic review: Review last 6 months, make sure we are on track with your growth plans.. Start phase 2 of website development by automating time consuming activities, improving dashboards, adding new products, services and starting the next growth stages plan.|
What if my goals can’t be achieved in the hours you have in my retainer?
When we plan our roadmaps, we work together with you to ensure that the pace of the work matches your expectations. Sometimes the amount of work that needs to be done is clear it will be more than your current retainer provides for. In most cases we can see this right away and we will proactively let you know upfront if something needs to be adjusted to stay within the budget, or if the budget needs to be increased to hit your goals.
In the end you always have full control over decisions around how your time and money is best spent.
