Inbound marketing enamora a los “marketeros”, pero no logran sacarle todo su jugo – vía @MkDirecto


Esta es la táctica de marketing inbound más eficaz pero también la más difícil según una encuesta de profesionales de marketing B2B y B2C de todo el mundo, realizada en septiembre de 2013 por Ascend2 y Research Underwriters.

La automatización del marketing es una técnica para hacer las tácticas de marketing entrantes más estratégicas y complementarias, así como reducir la cantidad de las conjeturas de marketing inbound, pero la encuesta encontró que pocos emplearon la automatización de marketing. Sólo el 16% de B2C y el 14% de B2B informaron mediante la automatización de marketing para gestionar su marketing inbound. A pesar de esto, más del 40% de ambos tipos de empresas emplean la automatización de marketing de forma limitada, lo que indica que el consumo podría aumentar en un futuro próximo.

El 45% de los marketeros calificaron su estrategia de marketing inbound como un gran éxito frente a sólo el 9% de los marketeros con un fracasado marketing entrante.

El estudio encontró también que la integración es un factor clave que distingue el éxito del fracaso. De hecho, el 67% de las empresas que lograron buenos resultados de marketing inbound habían integrado el programa de marketing inbound, frente al 9% de los exitosos que no lo había integrado.

A 2007 McKinsey innovation report, based on a survey of nearly 1400 executives from around the world showed that the executives unanimously agreed (94%) that people and corporate culture were the most important drivers of innovation. In another major study of 759 firms across 17 major economies, “Corporate Culture” was found to be the primary driver of radical innovation (Radical Innovation Across Nations: The Preeminence of Corporate Culture, Journal of Marketing, Jan. 2009). Booz Allen has been surveying the Global 1000 firms and reporting on them since 2005. In their latest report (The Global Innovation 1000, Why Culture is Key, Issue 65, Winter 2011), they concluded:

 

“The elements that make up a truly innovative company are many: a focused innovation strategy, a winning overall business strategy, deep customer insight, great talent, and the right set of capabilities to achieve successful execution. More important than any of the individual elements, however, is the role played by corporate culture — the organization’s self-sustaining patterns of behaving, feeling, thinking, and believing — in tying them all together.”

 

Unfortunately, enterprise culture is a slippery concept. Scholars define it as the bundle of attitudes, experiences, values, norms, assumptions and beliefs embraced by managers and employees; these, in turn, guide behavior. Regrettably, these elements of the definition of culture are equally slippery, with the result that any executive who wants to create a culture of innovation will have no way to measure the current culture; and without measurement, he or she will find it difficult, if not impossible, to identify a clear point at which to intervene and create positive change.

 

Recognizing this problem, in this book, I offer a model for capturing an innovative culture. I scoured the fields of organizational dynamics, leadership, behavioral science, corporate entrepreneurship and innovation to find theoretical frameworks and models that described organizational culture and culture of innovation. Specifically, I looked for instruments and assessment tools that were actionable; a primary need for all executives hoping to bring about change. In doing so, I found extensive research and models from academia, consulting firms and enterprises themselves, spanning over 30 years.

The Culture of Innovation

Hope you all had a great summer (in the northern hemisphere) and peaceful winter down below! Can’t believe that it is already October!

Before I took off for summer, I was hoping to finish off a task I had started in March – summarizing and giving you snippets from my recent book in Spanish. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Anyway, for first time readers, the book is titled (translated from Spanish), “Innovation 2.0: Why do we forget about the people when we talk about innovation? A practical way to create a culture of innovation.” Available from: (U.S. Amazon website, Spain Amazon website, Profit Editorial website, In e-book format from todoebook.com).

To help first time readers navigate and regular readers recall what we have covered thus far, I will quickly summarize my previous 5 blogs.

Project Management in the WordPress Dashboard | wpmu.org

WordPress Tutorials, Themes, Plugins & More – WPMU.org

A good project management system lets you keep track of (and manage) projects within your organization. It lets you relate and assign tasks to contacts, set milestones and goals, and it provides an easy to use interface for messaging other members of your team.

Every organization has unique needs, which means no project management system is perfect for every situation, but the WP Project Manager plugin is a great place to start if you want to bring simple project management functionality into your WordPress Dashboard.

In this daily tip, we’ll give you a quick review of this new project management plugin and a few suggestions on how you can use it to add project management to WP.

WP Project Manager Organization

WP Project Manager is organized around 5 main tabs:
1. Activity
2. Messages
3. To Do List
4. Milestones
5. Files

The Activity screen shows all items posted to the project in the style of most social media streams. It’s a simple status update with links to the individual activity.

The Activity Tab in WP Project Manager shows all project updates system-wide.

Messages are where you post notes regarding the project. They can be related to project milestones, or aimed at specific users.

Messages tab is a graphical display of all project communications

The To Do List gives you the ability to create tasks related to your individual projects, which can also be assigned to specific users. Leer más “Project Management in the WordPress Dashboard | wpmu.org”
