The Challenge: Growing a Digital Footprint

Gibraltar Construction faced the challenge of expanding its digital footprint. Despite their strong reputation, they recognized the need for some strategic marketing to keep pace with industry trends and consumer behaviour. This led Gibraltar Construction to seek out the Canadian Digital Adoption Plan (CDAP) and work with us to leverage the program and grow their business.

The Solution: How We Addressed Their Strategy Needs.

Our strategy in the CDAP report was created to align with Gibraltar Construction’s unique business needs and industry landscape. It was important that the report reflected the company’s specializations in Financial and Medical office construction.

Within Gibraltar’s CDAP plan, our team identified competitors’ digital presence, strengths and weaknesses, as well as auditing of the company’s existing social media, SEO, digital advertising, and visual content. After highlighting the competitors’ strategy and Gibraltar’s current digital position, we then created an extensive action plan for them to expand their digital footprint and get results.
