Marketing Transformation Toolkit
$699 – $1,999
The Marketing Transformation Toolkit is a comprehensive and in-depth set of project deliverables, including sample/Pro-forma content, tools, and templates that can be used by any enterprise embarking on a marketing transformation and customized to their unique needs. A marketing transformation program is substantial in scope and magnitude, and a transformation toolkit will accelerate time to value and allow the teams to focus on execution, not document generation.
(Note: Please read the Marketing Transformation Toolkit product description carefully, as given these digital products, we do not accept returns or offer refunds.)
The Strategic Imperative for Marketing Transformation:
Marketing transformation involves implementing new strategies, processes, and technologies to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of marketing efforts. The factors driving marketing transformation are numerous and complex. One key factor is the changing nature of consumer behavior, as consumers increasingly rely on digital channels to research and purchase products and services.
Another factor is the emergence of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data analytics, enabling marketers to understand their customers better and personalize their marketing efforts. Additionally, the proliferation of social media platforms and the increasing importance of social media influencers are changing how companies approach marketing.
Moreover, the need for marketing to be more accountable and demonstrate a clear return on investment is also driving marketing transformation. Marketers are being called upon to measure the impact of their efforts and tie them to business outcomes.
What does Marketing Transformation Entail:
It depends on the individual circumstances of a company, but a typical marketing transformation endeavor involves one or more of the following critical areas:
- A New Marketing Strategy
- A New Marketing Operating Model.
- Restructuring the marketing organization, structure, and staffing.
- Re-engineering the marketing value streams and processes
- Reimagining the value proposition of marketing, mainly digital marketing.
- A customer-centric transformation of the marketing culture.
- Synergistic leverage of all mediums and channels of communication.
- Re-platform and re-architecture of the marketing technology stack and systems/platforms.
Focus on Transformation, Not Documentation:
In this quest to transform marketing into a digital force, companies assemble a cross-functional team. And these teams spend a lot of time creating deliverables rather than focusing on actually executing the marketing transformation program.
A pre-built and customizable marketing transformation toolkit will alleviate the pain of building everything from a blank slate and allow teams to use the items in the toolkit to jumpstart and accelerate their journey.
Our experts have created the deliverables in the marketing transformation toolkit based on several years of experience in transforming marketing. So, instead of hiring consulting firms at exorbitant rates or assembling large teams to reinvent the wheel (so to speak), the toolkit for marketing transformation will allow them to quickly tailor the sample deliverables and then focus on really managing the transformation program.
What does the Marketing Transformation Toolkit Include?
As mentioned, it is a veritable treasure trove of customizable transformation artifacts, templates, outlines, and deliverables. However, please realize that none of the deliverables will fit your company like a glove as things differ – size, situation, scope, location, and industry dynamics. Plus, many of the deliverables include the typical sections and topics reflective of the norms for such documents. However, our sample content is often sparse, and the onus will be on the project team to enrich the content.

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.
