7 parameters of a C21 marketing scorecard

Developing metrics to measure the impact and ROI of marketing is becoming a game of choice around competent boardroom tables. Given the level of marketing engagement around many of those tables, it seems sensible for marketers to take the initiative.

Following are seven headline parameters that make some sense and can be further broken up to match the enterprise specific strategies that should be in place. Measure yourself on a five point scale.

  1.  Do you have a clear, 360 degree understanding of the behaviors, mindset, product category usage and limitations of your primary customers?
  2. Do you create, launch and measure  the effectiveness of marketing campaigns with the deep involvement of data intelligence tools
  3. Do you” listen” for customers behavior and respond in real time?
  4. Are you engaged in all stages of the customers product usage life-cycle, from first consideration of the potential benefits to the assessment of operational performance?
  5. Can you optimise marketing investment across all channels and activity types?
  6. Are all the KPI’s across the business aligned to the desired market outcomes?
  7. Is the boardroom “on board” with all the above. (bad pun, sorry)

If you score less than 30, you need to do some work. One of the easiest ways to keep track of progress is a  simple spider graph. Making the assessments a normal part of your marketing audit processes, recording progress in a simple way, then evaluating the performance and capability gaps that emerge will make you a more competitively effective enterprise.
