Executive Summary

In March 2014, Demand Metric collaborated with Pardot/Salesforce to conduct a research study entitled “Marketing Report Card: Keeping our Seat at the Table” to identify how Marketing as a function is being perceived. While many of the insights drawn were expected, there were a few that were shocking.

Only 15% of organizations claimed to have an easy time justifying their marketing budget. Furthermore, just 12% of organizations felt that Marketing is perceived as a highly profitable revenue center, whereas 59% perceive Marketing as a ‘necessary’ or even ‘unnessary’ expense.

This best practices report will discuss how organizations can build a Modern Marketing Center of Excellence (MMCoE), turn these perceptions around, and drive revenue growth.

  • 5. HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR MARKETING MATURITY Step 2 – Conduct a Self-Assessment Once you have studied the maturity model, take 15 minutes to refine your focus and identify your strengths and areas for improvement by using Demand Metric’s free World Class Marketing Assessment. This self-assessment is a 67 point diagnostic tool that will highlight your capabilities and provide you with a benchmark to measure your improvement over time. Step 1 – Determine Your Current Level of Maturity There are four stages of organizational maturity as it relates to Modern Marketing. These stages of maturity are:     1.  Cost-Center: Marketing is largely a sales support function with no executive leadership. Marketing department viewed as a cost-center with no ability to demonstrate its contribution to revenue. 2.  Revenue Neutral: Marketing is focused on Lead Generation, Events and Communications. Marketing & Sales work together to define lead quality and track operational metrics such as # impressions or # click-thrus but Marketing still viewed as a cost-center. 3.  Revenue Contributor: Marketing tracks metrics such as Cost Per Lead, Cost Per Opportunity but does not have a ability to clearly demonstrate direct contribution to revenue. 4.  Profit Center: Marketing viewed as a strategic enabler of scalable, predictable revenue. Metrics include Customer Lifetime Value, Return on Marketing Investment (ROMI) and Cost of Acquisition. Marketing is part of senior leadership and is highly respected.

  • 6. HOW TO WORK THE MODERN MARKETING MATURITY MODEL The final step is to set realistic goals for improvement in each key area. Then, gather resources, train your staff, get expert advice, and identify other creative ways to meet your improvement goals. Step 4 – Improve Capabilities and Re-Assess Over the next 6-12 months, use the Modern Marketing Maturity Model, World Class Marketing Assessment, and Prioritization Tool as your blueprint for implementing your performance and productivity plans. You may need to implement new technology systems to help you execute and measure your activities more accurately, standardize your key Marketing processes, or augment your organization’s skill set by adding additional staff or contractors. This is essentially how a Center of Excellence operates: assess, prioritize, improve, re-assess. After you have worked the process for at least 6 months, re-assess your organization using the World Class Marketing Assessment to demonstrate a measurable improvement to your capabilities and gain more support for your Modern Marketing Center of Excellence (MMCoE) TM . Step 3 – Set Incremental Goals for Improvement If you have completed the assessment, you will now have a report card with benchmarks for your current capabilities across the 8 key functions required to have a Modern Marketing Center of Excellence (MMCoE) TM . The next step in the process is to prioritize which areas of improvement will have the most immediate impact on your organization. You can use Demand Metric’s Prioritization Tool (no charge to downoad) to logically rank each initiative and get a visual output of your results. Fig. 5 Prioritization Tool Download!

  • 7. MODERN MARKETING CENTER OF EXCELLENCE (MMCoE) What is a Center of Excellence (CoE)? A CoE is generally a team of people that work together to develop and deploy ‘Best Practices’ around a specific function or focus area that drive improved business results. Some popular examples include: Lean, Six Sigma, TQM, ISO, ITIL, COBIT, PMO, etc. Experts in the field, Kerrine Bryan and Ian Herbert, define a CoE as: “The CoE may comprise a functional or cross-functional team looking both inside and outside the organisation to capture new knowledge and practices. It may be set up as a physical or virtual team, but it will have a permanent rather than just a project status. The defining feature of a CoE is knowledge management.” Practical Growth: Building a Modern Marketing Center of Excellence (MMCoE) Key Functions of a Center of Excellence (CoE): All CoE’s are unique but many focus on the following functions: §  Best Practices: Business Process Management (BPM) design and re- engineering based on third-party research & industry best practices §  Support: deliver shared services, policies, training, templates, etc. §  Direction: standardize processes in field/business units and provide methodologies, tools and knowledge centers to train staff §  Training: skills assessments, courses, e-learning, workshops, professional development plans, certification programs, academies §  Measurement: analyze results to demonstrate ROI of the CoE §  Technology: vendor/system standardization, technology expertise to enable automation of key processes across the whole enterprise §  Governance: budgeting & staffing, resource allocation, prioritization, decision-making, performance mangement, funding 7 © 2014 Demand Metric Research Corporation.

  • 8. BENEFITS OF A MMCoE TO THE ORGANIZATION Practical Growth: Building a Modern Marketing Center of Excellence (MMCoE) Why Build a Center of Excellence (CoE)? Executives at Forrester, Gartner and Accenture go on record to state that when organizations implement Business Process Management (BPM) initatives to improve their core operations and processes, they have much more success when they couple them with the creation of a Center of Excellence (CoE). Connie Moore, VP at Forrester Research states: “We have found a correlation between centers of excellence and BPM success.” The oppposite is also true, Moore goes on to state that: “BPM failures often go hand-in-hand with the lack of a CoE… It's hard to over- emphasize the importance of putting your core business process improvement skills in a central group.” In a Forrester survey, 67% of respondents who reported receiving clear and measurable benefits from their BPM initiatives had formal CoEs. For those who reported BPM failures, only 14% had CoEs in place. Forrester isn't alone in evangelizing the value of CoEs. A recent Gartner research report states bluntly that organizations without such cross-functional centers “will find that their efforts do not deliver the promised results, and their BPM initiatives will subsequently be disbanded.” Fully 50% of BPM projects conducted without CoE support go belly-up, according to Gartner. Asim Akram, senior manager of Accenture's Process Architecture Group, describes the CoE as an important bridge between short-term projects and taking a long-term and more strategic approach to BPM. In a recent article, Akram states: “While focusing on tactical needs, organizations tend to overlook areas such as process ownership and governance, roles and responsibilities, service levels and standards that should be associated with any process initiatives.” 8
  • 9. Practical Growth: Building a Modern Marketing Center of Excellence (MMCoE) Key Success Factors for Building a MMCoE There are four key success factors to consider when building a MMCoE: 1.  Documented and Agreed Upon Charter of the MMCoE 2.  Strong MMCoE Leadership 3.  Executive Level Sponsorship & Buy-In 4.  Defined Roles & Responsibilities Documented & Agreed Upon Charter of the MMCoE The MMCoE charter is a formal document that defines the scope, purpose, authority and operating procedures of the MMCoE. It should be detailed and include the current level of marketing maturity along with specific goals, tied to key metrics, for measuring improvements. Strong MMCoE Leadership The leader of the MMCoE should be analytical, process-oriented, and have the ability to work effectively with key stakeholders and executive- level sponsors. A consulting background in BPM is an asset. Executive Level Sponsorship & Buy-In Without a full commitment from senior management to support the MMCoE with the required budget, resources, and attention, there is a solid chance that the initiative will go belly-up inside of 12 months. Enterprise-wide initiatives are notorious for failing, so be sure to set reasonable expectations and don’t attempt without the required buy-in. Defined Roles & Responsibilities Like any high functioning team, each group and individual member of the MMCoE needs to have clearly articulated a role & responsibilities, metrics to measure their performance, and goals & objectives. It is imperative to document these roles & responsibilities to ensure that everyone is on the same page, new MMCoE members get up to speed quickly, and you can clearly communicate to senior-level stakeholders how the MMCoE functions from an operational perspective.

  • 11. 11 Demand Metric defines the Modern Marketing Center of Excellence (MMCoE)TM as: “the processes, practices, technologies and tools that improve the performance and productivity of the Marketing organization in an effort to drive a measurable contribution to revenue.”   Improving marketing effectiveness is a complex task, especially for mid-sized and large organizations. To assist in this mission, Demand Metric has created a model (figure 6) for understanding which functions and competencies are required to build a Modern Marketing organization that is viewed as a strategic driver of revenue. Additionally, Demand Metric has established a research practice for each of these competency areas to develop relevant research, tools, training and advice for organizations seeking to operationalize the ‘Best Practices’ employed by world-class marketing organizations.

  • 15. Key Function #4 - Demand Generation In our Lead Generation benchmark study, we found that just 9% of companies report having a highly effective lead generation process and 58% of participants say their process doesn’t produce enough leads.

Key Function #6 - Customer Engagement In our Content & The Buyer’s Journey study we found that the most frequently encountered problem with content marketing efforts is that “content doesn’t create enough opportunities for interaction and engagement”, experienced by 58% of study participants.

  • 18. Best Practices Report Thank you for taking the time to review this report. Demand Metric understands that consulting firms, industry analyst firms, and training firms do not provide a cost-effective method for delivering high-quality research, tools, training and advice at scale. These firms charge hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars to tackle Marketing effectiveness improvement projects. We don’t operate that way; it just doesn’t drive enough value. Instead, our business & pricing model is more akin to the SaaS model, and many of our clients pay just a few hundred dollars a month to access our vast library of 1,000+ practical resources, and tap into our expert Analysts and Consultants for help on their projects. Our mission is to empower Marketing organizations by conducting research on how top performing companies operate and then build extremely practical tools, templates, and training to help our clients ‘operationalize’ the Best Practices we identify in our research. If you give us the opportunity to explain how our business model works, we are confident you will see how we can deliver so much value at such a low price point. If you’re tired of paying ridiculous fees to consulting, analyst and training firms, give us a chance to earn your business. We look forward to learning more about your current marketing challenges and strategic objectives, and demonstrating how we are helping our 50,000+ member community and 1,000+ global clients implement Modern Marketing Centers of Excellence (MMCoE) to improve their operational effectiveness and efficiency, and, most importantly, drive a measurable contribution to revenue growth.

A great company, led by a terrific CEO, and staffed by fantastic people. ....If you are looking to solve a business problem or find other experts that can help, then Demand Metric is your place to go!” – CMO at Continuum, former VP Marketing at HubSpot "I've used Demand Metric for several projects, since 2008....

I've used several of the product and marketing tool sets and find them to be essential in defining a solid product management methodology that fits in with any corporate audit and compliance framework.” - SVP Product Management, Cadence Bank Demand Metric gives me that confidence because I can trust they know today's marketing challenges and are current on all the innovations. Their analysts know marketing cold, and have always been attentive to detail and extremely responsive and creative. I speak to 50-70 companies representing themselves a year, and maybe 5 to 10% have the clients interest at heart. Demand Metric was in that 5%.
