How Enterprise Marketing Return Solves Common Marketing Pain Points

Siloed teams, disjointed business goals, and a lack of understanding around the true value of marketing channels makes it impossible to measure the holistic impact of marketing efforts. Watch as Ovative’s Director of Measurement Solutions, Chuck Anderson-Weir, discusses how Enterprise Marketing Return (EMR) provides action-oriented answers to the pain points marketers face every day.

Pt 1 | What is Enterprise Marketing Return? (0:00 – 0:21): Enterprise Marketing Return (EMR) is a new measure of marketing success, incorporating all the things that are most important to your business and unifying your organization under one common goal.

Pt 2 | The Four Pillars of EMR (0:21 – 1:09):

1. Enterprise Revenue (online and offline sales)
2. Future Customer Value (acquisition, retention, and lifetime value)
3. Incrementality (causal impact of marketing determined through testing)
4. Profitability (incorporating margin to emphasize the bottom line)

Pt 3 | How does EMR Solve Common Pain Points? (1:10 – 2:20): When business leaders come to us with questions about how to drive their business forward, they often express common pain points that are stalling progress. Enterprise Marketing Return (EMR) solves these in a variety of ways, including measuring marketing from a customer-centric lens and unifying teams around a common goal.

Pt 4 | Holistic Impact (2:21 – 2:39): Chuck emphasizes Ovative’s belief that you must understand the holistic impact of marketing to make the best decisions for your business and EMR can help you do that.
