Increase Digital Marketing Effectiveness

The process to review and improve digital maturity:

  • Define digital maturity in different categories using a framework with the right scope
  • Identify opportunities or weaknesses across digital capabilities within the framework to prioritize improvements
  • Demonstrate the business case and priorities for improvements to colleagues (or clients if an agency or consultant)
  • Set objective targets for improving maturity to review against in future

Digital Maturity: The Sectors

In some industry sectors where digital channels have become a primary channel to market such as retail, financial services and travel, it has become essential to increase digital maturity to compete. In other sectors like some business-to-business industries and Pharma where traditional channels may still be the most important communications channels, maturity may be lower.

In larger businesses in sectors where the case can be made for investment, there may be more resources to support the digital transformation needed than in smaller businesses.

Defining Digital Maturity

In larger digital transformation projects, it may have a broad scope covering digital business and with a focus on digital technology and digital data. Digital business includes using digital communications to support interactions with a range of partners from suppliers to channel partners and customers.

Often the scope of digital transformation will be narrower, offering the opportunity for a brand to transform customer value propositions, business/revenue models and communications. This focus is valuable since it reviews opportunities for businesses to compete more effectively.

CMM Maturity Framework

To help create the digital marketing maturity frameworks I adapted the Carnegie Mellon Capability Maturity Model (CMM) for software. While detailed assessments differed, it appealed since it has 5 clearly defined stages that correspond to improving maturity.

Maturity frameworks are often developed by large consultancies for large international brands, but I was keen that our offering would also be relevant for small and medium-sized businesses and cover both strategy and practical communications techniques.

The Google - BCG Digital Maturity Framework

This framework covers these 5 aspects of maturity. As would be expected from Google’s commercial interests these have a strong focus on customer acquisition via media using a data-driven approach.

Unlike the framework above there is less focus further down the funnel considering digital customer experiences and brand-customer engagement.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
