How to Leverage Modern Technology to Drive Business Growth

Introducing our "Tales from the CTO" Monthly Newsletter!

Hello , 

As the Chief Technology Officer of ProServeIT, it's my pleasure to assist our customers in understanding how to manage the technology assets that belong to their business.

The March edition of Tales from the CTO discusses data, more specifically, how to create insights from your data and how to make your data actionable. When trying to determine what insights you want to achieve in your organization, it's important to think of the following:

  • Objectives: What is it that you're actually trying to achieve with the technology you have in your organization?
  • Metrics & Insights: In order to determine success, what metrics are you looking for? What insights are you trying to uncover?
  • Data Sources: Where is your data coming from? How is the accuracy of the data (in other words, who's inputting the data, and is it being inputted regularly)?
  • Audience: Who is going to be using these insights?

Check out the video below for more information on these questions, and learn how to get started. Also, feel free to drop me a line at CTO@proserveit.com if you have any questions, suggestions, or feedback.

Cheers,

Jaime McMahon, Chief Technology Officer

what is six pillar marketing framework

Hello,

Data is the topic of the 6PM (6-Pillar Marketing) newsletter this month. It's the roof of your 6PM Framework.

Here are 3 bullet points that summarize the newsletter. Intrigued? Scroll down to read more.

You hear how important data is in marketing. Why? Marketing, when done right, is what enables organizations to achieve exponential yet sustainable growth. For marketing to do that important job, it needs a budget and, to secure the necessary budget year after year, marketing needs to be able to show how efficiently and effectively it has achieved goals. This is why data is important.

Not sure where to begin? Start with the following 5 questions

5 Questions to Ask to Start Your Data Journey

#1What are your organization’s short term and long term goals?
#2 - What is marketing’s role in achieving those goals?
#3 - What marketing activities have you rolled out and plan to roll out?
#4 - What are some of the metrics you can and should measure to understand the effectiveness of those activities?
#5 - What data do you already have?

The tools you use (ex. Google analytics, CRM, email automation technology, marketing automation technology, etc.) should have some of the data you are looking for. Start making the connection between the data you need and the data you already have. That process will reveal the gap you need to close. Then, you can start thinking about what tool and process you need in place to close that gap.

💡Practical tip: not every piece of data you are looking for will come from technologies or tools you use.

Here is an example.

As your marketing team grows, the biggest item on your marketing P&L is overhead. Knowing where the team’s time is spent helps you calculate the true ROI of your marketing effort. Especially when your marketing team is involved in various activities. Especially when your marketing team also supports other functions within your organization. We know employees at small- to medium-sized organizations often wear multiple hats.

For example, our marketing team spends our time on many different activities. By tracking where we spend our time (MQL generation, SQL generation, branding, support, partner management, admin, etc.), we know whether we allocated our time properly on the top priorities, what were the time drains (if there were any), what processes can be automated to help the team spend their time on what actually produces value, and more.

I will share a bite-sized marketing tip every month on this 6PM Newsletter. Crowding your inbox is never my intention. If you don't wish to receive it, please use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.

If you have any questions or topics you want covered in the future newsletters, drop me a line - I would very much appreciate it.
