  11. 11. Is the business case strong enough to win cross-business support? THE JOURNEY IBM has developed a business model to quantify the commercial benefits of a Customer Insights programme. We believe in a self-funding programme built of small steps, which typically take three months and include: • Strong positive in-year ROI • Incremental steps to final business operating model • Alignment of data assets & governance • Next Best Action (cross-sell and service prompts) • Operational benefits/ROI tracking. The model shows the benefits of each step. The interactive control panel lets you configure “what if” scenarios and shows the commercial outcomes. CUSTOMERS REVENUE11 © 2011 IBM Corporation

  14. 14. Qualification Questions to ask your client Questions for CMO to ask self and peers: Director of: Database Marketing, Direct Marketing, Internet Marketing, Relationship Marketing, Field Marketing, Marketing Operations, Customer Insights, Customer Care, Customer Experience, Retention Manager 1. Do you have a single view of each customer, or is customer data locked away in product silos so that you cannot see overall how much business the customer does with you? 2. Can you accurately predict which offer is the best for each customer and make that offer at the right time and over the best channel for them to accept it? 3. How well are you able to assess the return on your marketing investment? 4. What is your customer’s experience like when they cross channels (e.g., web site, stores/branch, phone, when they receive emails from you)? Is it consistent? 5. How well do you take advantage of “inbound” customer interactions for marketing purposes – e.g., presenting personalized messages when someone comes to your web site, or calls your call center, or visits a store or branch? 6. How dependent on IT are you to execute your marketing? Are great marketing strategies going to waste because of an IT backlog? Would you like to be more self-sufficient to remove 3rd party OPEX from Marketing Services suppliers? Questions to ask CIO/IT 1. Are the people responsible for individual marketing channels such as web sites, email, POS, etc. looking to you for help figure out how to make their systems work together so they can have a single, cross-channel contact strategy? 2. Are you able to do everything the marketing team is demanding of you, as quickly as they’d like? Do you wish you could enable them to do more self-service? 3. Are you supporting separate marketing software applications, missing out on the economies of scale that would come from supporting one integrated platform?14 © 2011 IBM Corporation
