Using marketing analytics to drive superior growth

Using marketing analytics to drive superior growth | My Online Money Making Secrets | Scoop.it
Companies have so many analytical options at their disposal that they often become paralyzed, defaulting to just one approach. A McKinsey & Company article.

Via Don Dea

Don Dea's curator insight, June 20, 11:13 PM

There’s no question that the development of better analytical tools and approaches in recent years has given business leaders significant new decision-making firepower. Yet while advanced analytics provide the ability to increase growth and marketing return on investment (MROI), organizations seem almost paralyzed by the choices on offer. As a result, business leaders tend to rely on just one planning and performance-management approach. They quickly find that even the most advanced single methodology has limits.

The diverse activities and audiences that marketing dollars typically support and the variety of investment time horizons call for a more sophisticated approach. In our experience, the best way for business leaders to improve marketing effectiveness is to integrate MROI options in a way that takes advantage of the best assets of each. The benefits can be enormous: our review of more than 400 diverse client engagements from the past eight years, across industries and regions, found that an integrated analytics approach can free up some 15 to 20 percent of marketing spending. Worldwide, that equates to as much as $200 billion that can be reinvested by companies or drop straight to the bottom line.

Here’s one example. A property-and-casualty insurance company in the United States increased marketing productivity by more than 15 percent each year from 2009 to 2012. The company was able to keep marketing spending flat over this period, even as related spending across the industry grew by 62 percent. As the chief marketing officer put it, “Marketing analytics have allowed us to make every decision we made before, better.”

Doing Content Marketing? Why Some Companies Will Never Win At It

Doing Content Marketing? Why Some Companies Will Never Win At It | My Online Money Making Secrets | Scoop.it
Successful content marketing requires a fundamental shift in thinking about how you communicate with consumers—and how your brand serves them.

Via Karen Dietz

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 16, 3:10 PM

This article is short and sweet but packs a punch. The author Ross Crooks explains quite clearly how an old school approach to content marketing will bring disaster. If you are using content as advertising and view the customer as a means to sell rather than an audience to attract, success is going to be elusive. Or not sustainable.


I like the tactics given here: be real, do good, give first then ask. Each point made has solid additional insights for you. And the examples shared are good too.


Of course, I'll add a fourth tactic: the way to get the first three done is to share your authentic stories. Please don't forget that. If you do, your content will be dry and boring and not produce the results you want.


Marketing and branding has been changing over the past few years from messaging (push technology) to storytelling (pull technology). It's not easy to make that shift. And as I review the kinds of stories businesses are sharing these days, it's hard to find examples of companies doing it well. 


So I will periodically keep curating articles like this one so we can all get our heads on straight about the new marketing landscape, and continue with better storytelling. Enjoy this one!

Forgetting to use a greeting or closing

Always open with a greeting when beginning a conversation. Otherwise, your email will come off as terse and demanding, says Judith Kallos, an email etiquette expert. The same goes for including a closing line. "Every single word you speak or type is about forming an impression and building your brand," Kallos says. Leaving out these simple pleasantries won't give off a friendly vibe to potential clients or partners.

How great marketers tell stories

How great marketers tell stories | My Online Money Making Secrets | Scoop.it

"Former P&G marketing chief Jim Stengel says that the best companies tell two types of stories to build strong and enduring brands."

 

"The Brand Ideal, or Purpose, of Louisville Slugger is "to make players great." That statement could sound like puffery, except that the stories surrounding the brand make it plain and true. This is the case for most Ideal-driven businesses. Stories make the Ideal wheel spin.

 

Much has been written about the importance of storytelling in marketing and management, but nowhere do tales have a taller order than inside the walls of Ideal-driven companies. They bring definition to the Ideal. They authenticate it and animate it. They inspire and direct its activation.  They reaffirm the course and perpetuate the narrative."
