Navigating a Sea of Martech? 4 Tips For Charting Your Course in 2020 - MarTech Series

Navigating a Sea of Martech? 4 Tips For Charting Your Course in 2020 - MarTech Series | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
  1. Organize your team for success 
  2. Recognize technology that’s worth the cost: The important thing to remember though, is that no one type of technology will guarantee strong results. Before going all-in-one technology that might sound and look good, make an effort to understand the algorithms at play and how they provide tangible, incremental value to the marketing process.
  3. Know the data you’re using: To avoid the pitfalls associated with third party data, use your own data as much as possible. 
  4. Reduce the partners on plan: It’s important to understand the outcomes you’re trying to achieve, and then choose the right partner for those outcomes. You need someone who can deliver on the various tactics needed to achieve your goals, and can do so without math that involves windows and ratios. The 200-pound gorilla is not your only option. Choose wisely.

Marketing strategies for the luxury sector - Doxee

Marketing strategies for the luxury sector - Doxee | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it

In the luxury market, there are three possible strategies: luxury, fashion, and premium. The difference between these strategies is enormous: for fashion and premium strategies, classic marketing styles work quite well. However, when it comes to luxury, you have to rethink the typical marketing strategies. 

  1. The luxury strategy aims to create the maximum value for the brand and the full power to determine prices by exploiting all the intangible elements related to the brand identity, such as tradition, country of origin, history of craftsmanship, limited runs related to the scarcity of valuable raw materials, prestigious customers, etc.
  2. Fashion strategy is a totally different business model: here time is not decisive; fashion sells by being “fashionable”, i.e. a transitory value, an object of a programmed obsolescence, to borrow a term from high tech. 
  3. The premium strategy is an eminently comparative strategy. It can be summarized as a “pay more, get more” strategy where you must prove to customers that they’re getting the best quality for the price within a given category.

A tremendous article focused on luxury marketing. Even if this isn't your line of business, it provides well-researched insight.

Evaluating New Technology? You’re More Biased Than You May Realize - Sloan Management Review

Evaluating New Technology? You’re More Biased Than You May Realize - Sloan Management Review | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
In the same way that leaders may harbor an implicit bias about characteristics of groups of people, they may also harbor implicit biases about new technology — including new technology they might be considering investing in to improve productivity or competitiveness.

You may think that you make decisions about technology tools with an open mind and a clear process for evaluating options. But our review of hundreds of published studies on new technology adoption reveals that personal beliefs about new technology — that it’s wondrous, complex, and alien — prompt specific, unconscious biases about how and why it’s better than older options.

Implicit bias toward the dazzle of new tools can cause leaders to take unnecessary risks and ignore the advice of human experts in decision-making. Further, implicit bias toward new technology may lead to sizable investments in products and services that are unproven or even unsafe.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

Fascinating thesis. Marketers today are especially vulnerable, as the discipline is incredibly tech-oriented, but the ROI is sometimes sketchy.

Gartner : Survey Reveals 66% of Marketers Now Have a Centralized Marketing Organizational Structure | MarketScreener

Gartner : Survey Reveals 66% of Marketers Now Have a Centralized Marketing Organizational Structure | MarketScreener | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Despite years of mounting pressure within many marketing organizations between centralizing or decentralizing resources, a rapidly growing number of marketing leaders now prefer the centralized approach, according to Gartner, Inc. In fact, the Gartner Marketing Organization Survey 2020 of over 400 marketing leaders shows that nearly two-thirds of marketing teams are either fully or primarily centralized.

Resources that may have been decentralized to regions or other organizational entities are also being consolidated and centralized. This is consistent with findings from the CMO Spend Survey 2020 that show 79% of CMOs are no longer looking to new products and services, but rather existing markets to fuel future growth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This reallocation of resources is contributing to fully centralized models where all marketing staff operate as a centralized entity or primarily centralized models where most marketing staff are centralized with limited staff distributed to regions or business units. Gartner research also shows that marketing organizations with a marketing operations leader are more likely to have a fully centralized structure (35%) versus those without a marketing operations leader (23%).

This should not be a surprise to any of us: martech is centralized, thus form follows function.

New Podcast Survey Reveals Lift Rates are up to 30X Higher - MarTech Series

New Podcast Survey Reveals Lift Rates are up to 30X Higher - MarTech Series | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Leading data science company Claritas has released a new report entitled “Podcast Campaign Lift: A Guide to Accurately Analyzing Campaign Conversion Rates.” The report provides new insight into the return on investment (ROI) provided by podcast campaigns. It also shares how marketers can more accurately measure ROI on any marketing campaign.

Claritas set out to answer the question: “How well are podcast campaigns actually contributing to incremental engagements and/or conversions?”

To answer this question, Claritas analyzed 834 million podcast impressions that spanned across 158 campaigns over 36 months and multiple industries. The results were compelling: Lift rates in many key industries – including automotive, insurance, consumer goods, telecommunications and retail – ranged from 23.5% to 79%. That’s up to 30 times higher than the average lift rates for non-podcast channels such as digital display, print and linear TV, which average around 2.6%.

Compelling data pointing to podcasts as a supporting tactic.
