marketingAre you tapping into the surest ways to stand out from the competition? Nimble marketing organizations win more. Marketing agility is about speed — and being in-tune.  Without nimbleness, or agility, all the latest marketing techniques can only go so far. Here are 10 ways Marketing can stand out from the crowd:

Increase Your Speed:

  1. Maximize resources by avoiding duplication of effort and investment
  2. Prioritize effort and investment by focusing on the right metrics the right way
  3. Simplify workflows and handoffs to reduce chaos
  4. Adjust your work according to stakeholder needs to minimize wasted time, efforts and resources
  5. Demonstrate your interest in each of your stakeholders to maintain a win-win approach

Be In-Tune:

  1. Emphasize outside-in thinking to align perspectives and motivations with customers’ well-being
  2. Increase transparency of decision-making processes to stimulate collaborative teamwork
  3. Support the end-to-end customer life cycle to nurture customer retention and expand share of wallet/budget
  4. Make your business intelligence widely accessible and actionable to mobilize your company
  5. Systematize actioning on customer-centered business intelligence to drive strategic value
