PHASE 3: CAMPAIGN PLANNING

Capture the attention of customers and prospects through well-planning marketing campaigns.

 

To generate a return on marketing campaign dollars requires a clear objective, timeline, budget, accurate lists, correct media mix and compelling calls to action. By leveraging customer journey insights to create compelling messaging, marketers can reach the customer through the right channels with the right content at the right time. By tying marketing campaigns to revenue-related metrics, this leads to improved Return on Marketing Investment (ROMI).
