Setting OKRs is challenging for marketers because our goals often rely on outcomes outside of marketing. We need to collaborate with other teams to create objectives. And isolate marketing attribution in creating our key results.
The minute we pick one dashboard tool to rule them all, a new need for data would arise. Our data management is something that needs to evolve as our business evolves. Rather than look to one tool to rule them all, we need to look at consolidating rules to govern our data use.
Customer satisfaction is a key indicator of the health of your business. Both an early warning system and a validation of your efforts. It can be a key guidepost all along the customer journey and demonstrate the impact that your marketing efforts are having on your business objectives.
Insight is a combination of data and experience when we can’t know everything. We get better at actionable insights from continuously taking action.
Marketing OKRs are a simple and effective way for companies to state and track their goals. We can then plan programs and drive initiatives towards achieving the key results. As a strategy tool, it then can steer where we put our energy. What campaigns we will run. How we spend our budget.
