MRI® for Marketing

Market Ready Index® helps marketing departments evaluate, strategize, and optimize.

“Marketing is accountable for optimizing performance — and leadership wants more than a simple ROI.”

THE BEGINNING

Marketing meets technology


Most marketers have been early adopters of technologies in order to do the right things that meet their objectives: Streamline process, increase efficiencies and glean insights from terabytes of data in order to make better decisions.

EVALUATION

The digital things that can be easily measured, such as customer sales, web page analytics and Nielsen syndicated data.

STRATEGY

Based on available data and past performance, most strategy is developed using education, experience, and acumen.

OPTIMIZATION

Most often, optimization comes incrementally, and not fast enough, based solely on resources, objectives and results.

THE COMPLICATION

Marketing is more complex and fragmented


The 4 Ps (Product, Price, Place, Promotion) are being challenged by the 4 Cs (Consumer, Cost, Convenience, Communication) as Marketing as a discipline is evolving at an accelerated pace. Marketing technologies have proven insightful and frustrating at the same time.

Incomplete Evaluation

Traditional channels of communications have expanded with technology, splintering into subchannels of specialization. Digital has become a dominant force and demands a growing share of most marketing budgets. The struggle to evaluate has compounded with disparate systems using separate measurements, making it difficult or impossible to understand what works best.

Competing Strategies

Over the last 10 years, mass media has become secondary to social media with changing patterns of consumer consumption. Media fragmentation has created market fragmentation as consumers follow specific interests, channels, or trends. Today, more people and more decisions are required to create an integrated marketing communications plan that achieves business objectives.

Inconsistent Optimization

Optimization has become even more challenging because traditional analog channels (i.e., branding, public relations, sales, et al) provide the same accuracy or metrics as compulsory digital channels. The perception of measurement is often confused with actionable data; there’s a difference between having knowledge and knowing what it means. Marketers at all stages are then tasked with making positive changes to reach critical KPIs based on incomplete data.
