Because B2C (business to consumer) or B2B (business to business) marketing can be very complicated, it is easy to get lost when measuring the performance of your MARKETING STRATEGY. Business sales and brand awareness have always been and will always continue to be the main drivers behind any marketing strategy. Since marketers are under endless pressure to create predictable streams of revenue growth, designing and creating a custom-marketing process is the best way to keep things structured while monitoring marketing performance from day one.
In today’s business world, both large and small companies are trying to find solutions to analyze performance, be more cost effective, more efficient, and more innovative. One such solution is using SIGMA MARKETING. Sigma marketing enables top leaders to streamline any marketing, sales, and operational process, whatever it may be, in highly effective ways. The goals behind the Sigma Marketing scientific approach are to eliminate gaps and defects that adversely impact your performance and to create a comprehensive and seamless work flow of processes.
To apply the Sigma Marketing approach, a process chain is divided into specific tasks and results and then each aspect is measured to determine how much value each task adds to the entire marketing process. Which tasks are working well and should just be continued? Which tasks should be modified to improve their results? Are thereany tasks that can be simply eliminated?
For example, for a luxury brand like Dior, the layout of the packaging and the creation of the logo add a lot of value to the final product due to the notoriety of the brand.Dior has to ensure that these steps are carried out with maximum efficiency in house. On the other hand, low-cost brands can outsource the packaging process and use standard packaging, which eliminates a set of steps in the process and substantially reduces operational costs of production.
Applying the Sigma Marketing approach is definitively proving to be a PLUS. The approach increases the marketer’s ability to:
- Deliver on market requirements.
- Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the marketing planning process.
- Successfully manage marketing operations.
- Provide transparency into marketing and advertising activities.
- Enhance the collaboration between Marketing and the Sales, Product, and Business Development departments within the organization.
Ultimately, Sigma Marketing is a method for maximizing sales performance and solving business issues. Ideally, organizations map the consumer’s journey so that advertising, customer services, and selling or up-selling become more effective tactics. Applying this method helps marketers streamline processes to move the consumer along on their journey, engage with the brand, and buy seamlessly. Sigma Marketing gives marketers a real competitive advantage, enabling them to identify anything that does not contribute to achieving the ultimate sales goal. Anything that doesn’t contribute is WASTE and should be eliminated.
