Marketing Automation and Systems Transformation Drivers

Marketing – direct, indirect, inbound and outbound – is a key function and a cornerstone of enterprise success. But in many companies marketing is replete with challenges such as silos, lack of automation, and spreadsheets. Today, many companies are embarking on marketing process automation and systems transformation due to preponderance of digital channels, the propensity of customers to research and/or purchase goods and services online, the emergence of new tools and techniques, and the power of marketing to drive audiences.

Here are a few drivers for any enterprise to consider to help make a restructuring and transformation decision of the Marketing function and related systems.

  1. Marketing is still mostly a manual process and the few systems that support marketing processes are disjointed, silo’ed and complex.
  2. An end to end, closed loop automation of marketing is still a distant dream
  3. Marketing teams need to log into multiple systems to accomplish basic tasks.
  4. Marketing related decisions are made by hunch and gutfeel rather than timely and actionable data
  5. Cost of managing the marketing function is spiraling out of control
  6. The concepts and benefits of social marketing, personalization, and inbound marketing are not easy to integrate and harness
  7. The Marketing Systems are replete with non-standard processes and ad hoc reporting
  8. Multiple and point solutions galore for various Marketing functions.
  9. Convoluted marketing processes and lack of data analytics make analysis and measurement of effectiveness difficult or impossible
  10. Various facets of marketing – PR, Advertising, Branding, Content Marketing, Social Media marketing – are not synergistic and at times work in opposition rather than in conjunction
  11. Effort and cost of Marketing systems maintenance is spiraling out of control
  12. Spreadsheet and Access databases galore in every nook and corner of marketing functions

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
