Growth marketing

We live in a world that is constantly changing. When it comes to marketing, the change is being accelerated by having access to vast amounts of data. Data-analytics allow marketers to organize the data to make data-based decisions and thus engage in truly knowledge-based marketing. This, if anything, can eliminate the uncertainty that change entails.

Growth marketing enables the success of always on data-driven campaigns. We have created a 20-step roadmap to help you get up to speed on growth marketing. Download your copy today – ID BBN helps you to master growth marketing!

What is growth marketing?

Growth marketing is based on an agile, data-driven working model and experiments that are conducted in sprints. The aim of growth marketing is always to increase our clients’ revenues, improve their sales efficiency and solve their business challenges.

Growth marketing is characterised by different types of experiments. We test different approaches, and each step of the marketing program – from design to implementation – is guided by insight gained from data. The data quickly reveals to us which solutions work well and which are less effective, thereby indicating which experiments should be further explored and which should be dropped.

At ID BBN, growth marketing is done by our multiskilled team of experts using agile development methods and systematic processes. These allow us to see the results of experiments quickly and target the client’s resources optimally.

Growth marketing – Increase your customer understanding with data

These days, growth marketing seems to be the talk of the town. No wonder—it has been widely used for quite some time already, whereas data-driven marketing is a relatively new concept. Let’s look at what happens when we combine these two marketing concepts together.

My personal experience with using data for marketing is often coupled with my activity in growth marketing teams. For years I worked with clients, using data to deepen their understanding of their customers and provide a better customer experience. Here are some of my key takeaways and learnings:

Don’t try to measure EVERYTHING

Sometimes less is more. When working in a growth team you should narrow down your KPIs to the absolute essentials and track these regularly. Of course, when digging down into the how’s and why’s you should still have access to other metrics to get to the bottom of things.

Communication matters

It is essential that your reports, analytics and insights are presented in a way that makes the information as easy to digest as possible. Remember the basics of communication, that a medium always has two parts; a sender and a receiver, and the information therein can be incomplete or altered while makings its way to the recipient. This is especially important when dealing with data and analytics, where the contents of the message can be challenging to grasp.

Data collection practices are important

Sometimes we encounter a data problem with clients who haven’t standardized their sales and marketing system practices (CRM / MA). The issue here is that data effected by human interactions, or outside automation, is often gathered slightly differently from person to person. The result may be that dashboards or other analytics applications, such as MROI (marketing return on investment) calculations or AI models for sales and marketing, might not function as intended due to the data issue. However, fear not, as this issue can often be solved via a data-cleanup process.
