Workshop Overview
Marketing management has never been so exciting -- or daunting. The
proliferation of digital tactics and lightweight technology has cleared the
path for us to take genuine ownership of our operations, and be less reliant
on other areas of the organization to do our jobs. While this new reality is
empowering, it also comes with challenges. Indeed, today's senior marketing
manager is not only tasked with traditional responsibilities such as brand
shepherding and lead generation, but also line items such as data analysis,
technology portfolio optimization, and vendor relations.
The session will explain a comprehensive 30-point methodology for conducting an
assessment, with specific focus on the following four areas of the marketing operation:
• Advertising & Promotion: digital media (search, display / banners, classified, mobile, digital video, lead
generation, sponsorships), organic search marketing, content marketing, social media, email marketing
• Websites: copy, images, video / animation, landing pages, microsites, search, live chat, blogs
• Technology: marketing automation, content management, analytics, and data management
• Vendors: even mid-sized digital marketing operations often have 10+ vendors involved in maintenance
and optimization
5
Workshop Goals
• Leave the session with 2-3 practical techniques for cost-cutting or ROI
improvement
• Develop an understanding of the entire digital ecosystem and how an
audit could be pursued at your own organization
Most digital audits are focused on the following areas of emphasis:
 Cost-savings: “Our spending on digital advertising, staff, and technology has
doubled in the past three years, and we need to find ways to get spending
under control.”
 Performance improvement: “Our digital strategy is critical to the long-term
health of the business and we need to make sure our digital investments are
optimized.”
 Competitive benchmarking: “We know we’re at a competitive disadvantage
due to our digital strategy and we need to understand the precise pain points
and how to respond.”

THE CHALLENGE
15
Traditional Corporate Org Structure
The traditional,
function-based
structure of
corporations
doesn’t
accommodate
successful digital
business, which
cuts across
multiple
functional areas.
16
Digital’s Impact is Far-Reaching
17
Why The Need for a Digital Audit & Roadmap?
Executing successfully on digital strategies has never been more challenging. While the
rapid proliferation of digital technologies and techniques over the past decade has
fueled the growth of an exciting new industry, and which has enabled general managers
and marketers to free themselves from the grips of the IT department, it has also created
a disruptive environment that is challenging to manage.
“In our experience, companies may be leaving as much as 20%
to 30% of potential [digital advertising] returns on the table.”
“Software is eating the world.“ (Marc Andreessen)
“The CMO will spend more on IT than the CIO by 2017.”
New research from BCG shows that today's marketing
organizations "do not have the skills to operate in a digital
world, and that the gaps and shorftalls are bigger than
they assume."
18
Other Reasons for Audits & Roadmaps
“Should I be using Outbrain?”
• CMO at $100M manufacturing company
“Do you think $9,000/month is enough for my paid search program?
• CMO at $50M marketing company
“Is Hubspot good?”
• Numerous
“I just hired a senior in college to make some noise for me on social media in between classes.”
• Consulting firm CEO
“My nephew is graduating from college this spring and I’m thinking of hiring him to run my website.”
• Successful energy entrepreneur
“What about the other 97% of my website visitors – why aren’t we getting their business too?”
• $500M company CEO in response to hearing his company’s website performs at a 3% conversion rate
Lots of confusion among senior executives about how to deploy
digital strategy, and what is considered successful or unsuccessful.

* Digital spend estimated at 25% of marketing budget; marketing budget assumed to be 7.5% of revenues
** Assumes 20% savings or performance gain as a result of audit & roadmap
The most likely candidates for a digital audit are companies with $50M - $1B
in annual sales. Small companies aren’t spending enough on digital yet to
justify an audit, and very large companies are either too complex or
impenetrable due to their existing agency relationships.
21
Making the Case for an Audit
Your CEO Is Going to Start Asking Questions
Combined factors of increased profile + budget
Playing Catch-Up is a Bad Spot
If the audit is requested by a CEO or CFO, that puts marketing in a vulnerable positions
Objectivity is in Short Supply
If your vendor’s tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail
If You’re Not Confused, You’re Not Paying Attention
The growth of digital advertising and the digital tools and technologies marketplace has
resulted in sprawling, Frankenstein-like digital operations with various inefficiencies
(Practically) Every Other Group is Doing It
Many other corporate groups conduct audits regularly: finance, IT, risk, energy, HR, etc.
Your CFO Will Love You For It
It’s the CFO’s job to keep an eye on spending, and while many digital audits result in budget
increase recommendations, it can also serve as a compelling tool to influence CFO thinking
about digital investments
22

Sample Audit Deliverables
Assessment results and strategic recommendations will be delivered in two
primary formats: a series of reporting documents and in-person presentations.
Prior ECC digital strategy audit and roadmap
assignments have yielded reports that address the
following in each major area of the project (planning,
infrastructure, applications, creative, promotion,
analytics, vendors and staff):
- Description / inventory
- Research findings (quotes from the field, industry
experts)
- Competitive benchmarks
- Assessment (weak, industry standard, strong) +
insights
- Options
- Opportunity
- Costs
- Recommendations
26
Area of Focus: Infrastructure & Applications
Hosting
Hosting is literally the foundation of any digital marketing operation, but often doesn’t get the attention or
priority it deserves.
Website Speed
Most experts agree that sites should download in under five seconds. More recently, studies have shown that
users abandon sites in great numbers after two seconds.
Marketing Technology
The marketing technology category has exploded in recent years; according to VentureBeat, the sector is
growing at 50% annually.
Responsive Design / Mobile Friendly
There’s no avoiding mobile. The statistics are overwhelming, in both B2C and B2B. And it’s more of an
infrastructure (applications) problem than a design problem.
27
Area of Focus: Promotion
Search Marketing
Paid search marketing (PPC) accounts for 40%+ of all digital advertising.
Mobile Marketing
With phone and tablet internet usage officially overtaking PCs this year, a mobile strategy is a must-have in
every digital marketing portfolio.
Multi-Channel Marketing
Multichannel marketing is one of the most frequently discussed topics among digital marketing executives
these days. But given its relative newness, you still have time to get out ahead of the pack if you make a move
in early 2015.
Email Marketing
"Newsletters are clicking because readers have grown tired of the endless stream of information on the
Internet."
28
Area of Focus: Vendor Management
Understand the Vendor Landscape
Ad agencies, marketing services providers, marketing technology companies
Procurement Wizardry
“Procurement departments and others have been busily grinding down fees for decades now”
Vendor Portfolio Management
The very largest companies can afford one-stop-shop relationships with full-service agencies,
and they’ll do this job for clients. The rest of us need to fend for ourselves.
Be a Good Client
When it comes to digital, skilled professionals have myriad options these days.

Tools of the Trade

31
SUMMARY & KEY TAKEAWAYS
32
Areas of Emphasis
The “80/20” rule applies to digital audits. 80% of your material findings are
going to be gleaned from 20% of the operation. These areas typically include
one of the following:
• Paid digital advertising: pay-per-click (ppc) search and display advertising (including
mobile) combine to account for about 75% of all digital advertising, and these areas are
the most fertile for auditing, if only because of their size
• Vendor management: mis-aligned or mis-managed vendors are the #1 sources of digital
operation leakage
• Staffing: the largest digital agencies have been managing annual turnover rates in
excess of 25% for years; corporations don’t typically experience this rate of turnover,
which means that unless job descriptions are being proactively evolved each year, the
“digital” job someone was hired to do 4-5 years ago is probably dramatically different
today, so mis-aligment will be apparent and problematic
33
Keys to Success
Digital audits can be challenging to conduct successfully due to their cross-
departmental variables and lack of generally agreed-upon best practice
benchmarks to measure against. In our experience, successful digital audits
include the following characteristics:
• Executive sponsorship: while this factor is true for most projects, it’s especially pertinent to
digital audits because many departments are necessary for fact-gathering; as such, a C-level
sponsor is typically required for companies with less than $500M in sales
• Stakeholder meetings at each phase of the project: most audits are complex and regular
education throughout assignments is critical for gaining the buy-in necessary to implement post-
audit recommendations (such as vendor re-balancing or new budget acquisition)
• Realistic scope: comprehensive digital audits can only be achieved with overt buy-in from the
board, CEO and/or CFO, and this commitment is unusual, especially at large companies;
however, focused digital audits (on specific areas of the digital value chain, such as PPC,
marketing technology, staffing, etc.) can also result in significant cost-savings or performance
improvements, while also serving as a path to a comprehensive audit; be realistic about what
can be included in your audit and scope it in a way that affords the best chance of success
• Avoidance of sacred cows & red herrings: if the organization has just committed to a multi-
year, enterprise-class contract with a huge software company for its marketing suite, consider
that a sunk cost and figure out a way to make the most of it; at the same time, many vendor
relationships can be reworked or even canceled without much difficulty – knowing the difference
between these two situations can be the difference between a successful or failed audit

attention and investment

An Anatomy of a Digital Audit (Digital Marketing Audit)

  • 2. 2 Table of Contents INTRODUCTION Workshop Overview 4 Workshop Goals 5 About Tim & East Coast Catalyst 6-7 THE DIGITAL LANDSCAPE Digital Advertising Growth 9-10 Social Media & Marketing Automation 11-12 Gartner’s Transit Map 13 THE CHALLENGE Ill-Fitting Corporate Org Structure 15-16 Why an Audit? 17-18 Financial Implications 19-20 Making the Case for an Audit 21 THE AUDIT Approach & Framework 23-24 Sample Audit Deliverables 25 Area of Focus: Infrastructure & Applications 26 Area of Focus: Promotion 27 Area of Focus: Vendor Management 28 Tools of the Trade 29 CASE STUDY SUMMARY & TAKEAWAYS Areas of Emphasis 32 Keys to Success 33 APPENDIX About East Coast Catalyst 35-41 Sample Audit Timeline & Process 42-43
  • 4. 4 Workshop Overview Marketing management has never been so exciting -- or daunting. The proliferation of digital tactics and lightweight technology has cleared the path for us to take genuine ownership of our operations, and be less reliant on other areas of the organization to do our jobs. While this new reality is empowering, it also comes with challenges. Indeed, today's senior marketing manager is not only tasked with traditional responsibilities such as brand shepherding and lead generation, but also line items such as data analysis, technology portfolio optimization, and vendor relations. The session will explain a comprehensive 30-point methodology for conducting an assessment, with specific focus on the following four areas of the marketing operation: • Advertising & Promotion: digital media (search, display / banners, classified, mobile, digital video, lead generation, sponsorships), organic search marketing, content marketing, social media, email marketing • Websites: copy, images, video / animation, landing pages, microsites, search, live chat, blogs • Technology: marketing automation, content management, analytics, and data management • Vendors: even mid-sized digital marketing operations often have 10+ vendors involved in maintenance and optimization
  • 5. 5 Workshop Goals • Leave the session with 2-3 practical techniques for cost-cutting or ROI improvement • Develop an understanding of the entire digital ecosystem and how an audit could be pursued at your own organization Most digital audits are focused on the following areas of emphasis:  Cost-savings: “Our spending on digital advertising, staff, and technology has doubled in the past three years, and we need to find ways to get spending under control.”  Performance improvement: “Our digital strategy is critical to the long-term health of the business and we need to make sure our digital investments are optimized.”  Competitive benchmarking: “We know we’re at a competitive disadvantage due to our digital strategy and we need to understand the precise pain points and how to respond.”

  • 11. 11 The Social Media Landscape
  • 13. 13 The Gartner Digital Marketing Transit Map
  • 15. 15 Traditional Corporate Org Structure The traditional, function-based structure of corporations doesn’t accommodate successful digital business, which cuts across multiple functional areas.
  • 16. 16 Digital’s Impact is Far-Reaching
  • 17. 17 Why The Need for a Digital Audit & Roadmap? Executing successfully on digital strategies has never been more challenging. While the rapid proliferation of digital technologies and techniques over the past decade has fueled the growth of an exciting new industry, and which has enabled general managers and marketers to free themselves from the grips of the IT department, it has also created a disruptive environment that is challenging to manage. “In our experience, companies may be leaving as much as 20% to 30% of potential [digital advertising] returns on the table.” “Software is eating the world.“ (Marc Andreessen) “The CMO will spend more on IT than the CIO by 2017.” New research from BCG shows that today's marketing organizations "do not have the skills to operate in a digital world, and that the gaps and shorftalls are bigger than they assume."
  • 18. 18 Other Reasons for Audits & Roadmaps “Should I be using Outbrain?” • CMO at $100M manufacturing company “Do you think $9,000/month is enough for my paid search program? • CMO at $50M marketing company “Is Hubspot good?” • Numerous “I just hired a senior in college to make some noise for me on social media in between classes.” • Consulting firm CEO “My nephew is graduating from college this spring and I’m thinking of hiring him to run my website.” • Successful energy entrepreneur “What about the other 97% of my website visitors – why aren’t we getting their business too?” • $500M company CEO in response to hearing his company’s website performs at a 3% conversion rate Lots of confusion among senior executives about how to deploy digital strategy, and what is considered successful or unsuccessful.
  • 19. 19 Financial Incentives Company Revenues Digital Spend* Savings/Gains** $10,000,000 $187,500 $37,500 $25,000,000 $468,750 $93,750 $50,000,000 $937,500 $187,500 $100,000,000 $1,875,000 $375,000 $250,000,000 $4,687,500 $937,500 $500,000,000 $9,375,000 $1,875,000 $1,000,000,000 $18,750,000 $3,750,000 $5,000,000,000 $93,750,000 $18,750,000 $10,000,000,000 $187,500,000 $37,500,000 * Digital spend estimated at 25% of marketing budget; marketing budget assumed to be 7.5% of revenues ** Assumes 20% savings or performance gain as a result of audit & roadmap A typical company with $100M in sales can expect $375,000 in savings or performance gains following a digital audit.
  • 20. 20 Financial Incentives Company Revenues Digital Spend* Savings/Gains** $10,000,000 $187,500 $37,500 $25,000,000 $468,750 $93,750 $50,000,000 $937,500 $187,500 $100,000,000 $1,875,000 $375,000 $250,000,000 $4,687,500 $937,500 $500,000,000 $9,375,000 $1,875,000 $1,000,000,000 $18,750,000 $3,750,000 $5,000,000,000 $93,750,000 $18,750,000 $10,000,000,000 $187,500,000 $37,500,000 * Digital spend estimated at 25% of marketing budget; marketing budget assumed to be 7.5% of revenues ** Assumes 20% savings or performance gain as a result of audit & roadmap The most likely candidates for a digital audit are companies with $50M - $1B in annual sales. Small companies aren’t spending enough on digital yet to justify an audit, and very large companies are either too complex or impenetrable due to their existing agency relationships.
  • 21. 21 Making the Case for an Audit Your CEO Is Going to Start Asking Questions Combined factors of increased profile + budget Playing Catch-Up is a Bad Spot If the audit is requested by a CEO or CFO, that puts marketing in a vulnerable positions Objectivity is in Short Supply If your vendor’s tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail If You’re Not Confused, You’re Not Paying Attention The growth of digital advertising and the digital tools and technologies marketplace has resulted in sprawling, Frankenstein-like digital operations with various inefficiencies (Practically) Every Other Group is Doing It Many other corporate groups conduct audits regularly: finance, IT, risk, energy, HR, etc. Your CFO Will Love You For It It’s the CFO’s job to keep an eye on spending, and while many digital audits result in budget increase recommendations, it can also serve as a compelling tool to influence CFO thinking about digital investments
  • 23. 23 Digital Audit Approach (Framework) The East Coast Catalyst digital strategy framework is a tested methodology that ensures every aspect of an operation is assessed and incorporated into the planning process. CATEGORY AREA OF FOCUS DESCRIPTION / INVENTORY ASSESSMENT OPTIONS RECOMMENDATIONS Strategy Alignment with Corporate Sales, Marketing & Operational Objectives Strategy Competitive Benchmarking: Digital Footprint & Reach Strategy Competitive Benchmarking: Competitor Ad Spending & Budgets Infrastructure Hosting: Setup & Configuration Infrastructure Hosting: Performance & Scability Applications Content Management System (CMS) Applications Baseline Functionality (Forms, Personalization) Applications Database / Data Warehouse Applications Ecommerce Applications CRM / Marketing Technology & Automation Applications Custom Applications / Intranet / Extranet Applications Community Applications Mobile Apps / Mobility Creative/Design User Experience Creative/Design Branding / Identity Creative/Design Website Assets (Imagery, Content, Widgets) Creative/Design Rich Media / Video Promotion Social Media Promotion Search Engine Optimization / Organic Search Promotion Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Search Marketing / Paid Search Promotion Email Marketing Promotion Content Marketing Promotion Mobile Marketing Promotion Display Advertising Promotion Online PR Analytics Tool(s) Setup & Configuration Analytics Conversion / Goal Tracking Analytics Reporting: Business Process Talent / Skills Staff Capability Assessment Vendors Vendor Mix, Contracts & Performance Assessment THE DIGITAL STRATEGY AUDIT & ROADMAP FRAMEWORK
  • 24. 24 Digital Audit Approach (Framework) (continued) • Strategy: Alignment with corporate goals • Strategy: Competitor benchmarking •Infrastructure: Hosting vendor & contract evaluation • Infrastructure: Hosting performance & scalability • Infrastructure: Business process management methods • Infrastructure: Database / data warehouse • Website: Application (CMS) • Website: Application (ECommerce) • Website: Application (CRM / Marketing Automation) • Website: Intranet / Extranet • Website: Custom application(s) • Website: User experience • Website: Community • Website: Multimedia assets • Creative: Communication strategy & offline integration • Creative: Digital asset review ECC’s digital marketing strategy discovery activities may include the investigation into any one or all of the following components of a digital operation. • Promotion: Display advertising • Promotion: Organic search engine optimization (SEO) • Promotion: Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising • Promotion: Email marketing • Promotion: Content marketing • Promotion: Mobile marketing • Promotion: Online public relations (PR) • Promotion/Community: Social media • Analytics: Systems & setup • Analytics: Conversion tracking • Competitor Review: Site assets & performance assessment • Competitor Review: Digital advertising activities & budget benchmarking • Talent/Skills Review: Assess capabilities & composition of client team • Vendor / Partner review: Vendor management relationships, contracts, and optimization planning
  • 25. 25 Sample Audit Deliverables Assessment results and strategic recommendations will be delivered in two primary formats: a series of reporting documents and in-person presentations. Prior ECC digital strategy audit and roadmap assignments have yielded reports that address the following in each major area of the project (planning, infrastructure, applications, creative, promotion, analytics, vendors and staff): - Description / inventory - Research findings (quotes from the field, industry experts) - Competitive benchmarks - Assessment (weak, industry standard, strong) + insights - Options - Opportunity - Costs - Recommendations
  • 26. 26 Area of Focus: Infrastructure & Applications Hosting Hosting is literally the foundation of any digital marketing operation, but often doesn’t get the attention or priority it deserves. Website Speed Most experts agree that sites should download in under five seconds. More recently, studies have shown that users abandon sites in great numbers after two seconds. Marketing Technology The marketing technology category has exploded in recent years; according to VentureBeat, the sector is growing at 50% annually. Responsive Design / Mobile Friendly There’s no avoiding mobile. The statistics are overwhelming, in both B2C and B2B. And it’s more of an infrastructure (applications) problem than a design problem.
  • 27. 27 Area of Focus: Promotion Search Marketing Paid search marketing (PPC) accounts for 40%+ of all digital advertising. Mobile Marketing With phone and tablet internet usage officially overtaking PCs this year, a mobile strategy is a must-have in every digital marketing portfolio. Multi-Channel Marketing Multichannel marketing is one of the most frequently discussed topics among digital marketing executives these days. But given its relative newness, you still have time to get out ahead of the pack if you make a move in early 2015. Email Marketing "Newsletters are clicking because readers have grown tired of the endless stream of information on the Internet."
  • 28. 28 Area of Focus: Vendor Management Understand the Vendor Landscape Ad agencies, marketing services providers, marketing technology companies Procurement Wizardry “Procurement departments and others have been busily grinding down fees for decades now” Vendor Portfolio Management The very largest companies can afford one-stop-shop relationships with full-service agencies, and they’ll do this job for clients. The rest of us need to fend for ourselves. Be a Good Client When it comes to digital, skilled professionals have myriad options these days.

  • 32. 32 Areas of Emphasis The “80/20” rule applies to digital audits. 80% of your material findings are going to be gleaned from 20% of the operation. These areas typically include one of the following: • Paid digital advertising: pay-per-click (ppc) search and display advertising (including mobile) combine to account for about 75% of all digital advertising, and these areas are the most fertile for auditing, if only because of their size • Vendor management: mis-aligned or mis-managed vendors are the #1 sources of digital operation leakage • Staffing: the largest digital agencies have been managing annual turnover rates in excess of 25% for years; corporations don’t typically experience this rate of turnover, which means that unless job descriptions are being proactively evolved each year, the “digital” job someone was hired to do 4-5 years ago is probably dramatically different today, so mis-aligment will be apparent and problematic
  • 33. 33 Keys to Success Digital audits can be challenging to conduct successfully due to their cross- departmental variables and lack of generally agreed-upon best practice benchmarks to measure against. In our experience, successful digital audits include the following characteristics: • Executive sponsorship: while this factor is true for most projects, it’s especially pertinent to digital audits because many departments are necessary for fact-gathering; as such, a C-level sponsor is typically required for companies with less than $500M in sales • Stakeholder meetings at each phase of the project: most audits are complex and regular education throughout assignments is critical for gaining the buy-in necessary to implement post- audit recommendations (such as vendor re-balancing or new budget acquisition) • Realistic scope: comprehensive digital audits can only be achieved with overt buy-in from the board, CEO and/or CFO, and this commitment is unusual, especially at large companies; however, focused digital audits (on specific areas of the digital value chain, such as PPC, marketing technology, staffing, etc.) can also result in significant cost-savings or performance improvements, while also serving as a path to a comprehensive audit; be realistic about what can be included in your audit and scope it in a way that affords the best chance of success • Avoidance of sacred cows & red herrings: if the organization has just committed to a multi- year, enterprise-class contract with a huge software company for its marketing suite, consider that a sunk cost and figure out a way to make the most of it; at the same time, many vendor relationships can be reworked or even canceled without much difficulty – knowing the difference between these two situations can be the difference between a successful or failed audit
