4 ways digital fluency contribute to higher revenue

Improving C-Suite digital fluency contributes to revenue growth
It is safe to assume that digital natives and tech companies are culturally more attuned to the use of digital tools than non-tech-focused companies.

This, however, does not always translate into complete digital fluency when it comes to marketing strategy.  Improving C-Suite digital fluency contributes to revenue growth and, thanks to clear metrics, provides much-needed insights in an environment paved with uncertainty.

A vast majority of executives still see this process as complex and tedious though. Data driving KPIs, automation, and key partnerships are some of the ingredients we have found to make the learning more effective.

Revenue growth

Beyond typical below the line advertising, improving digital maturity is an opportunity for executives to contribute more directly to revenue growth, where metrics and KPIs are more easily tracked than, let’s say, investment in trade publications, brochures, or billboards, and agility should be more than just a buzzword.

As such, many industry professionals recognize the importance of going digital and improving the fluency of their company, but a vast majority of them see this process as complex and tedious.

Here are a few principles marketing executives can apply to lead their company on the path of digital maturity and convert their newfound fluency to revenue growth.

Data is a digital currency

While “more is less” is an effective guiding principle in many areas, this does not apply as widely to data gathering and building intelligence.

In the early stages of digital maturity, many marketing teams do not know what they don’t know and the initial learning curve can be steep - although very rewarding, very quickly.
Data is ultimately going to be the currency over which your decision-making should be built; from what works, to what doesn’t, hopefully kicking pre-conceived ideas to the curb and generating new and actionable insights.

Define clear KPIs for your business and your teams

Data is the starting point on the path towards empowering teams with the tools it needs but, far too often, paralysis analysis will cripple their ability to take action.

Setting actionable goals, breaking down steps, and agreeing on short-term objectives - in the light of the long-term ones - will be far more effective than analyzing data at length in the hope of ever obtaining 1 right answer.

Set KPIs early for your business and teams, try new things, fail often, fail early and fail forward (hopefully this last sentence won’t give you buzzword cringe).

As long as your process is supported by data (with a sprinkle of creative thinking), this will seldom be a waste of time.

Automate
everything that can be

Manually performing tasks can in some cases be seen as the only way to reach perfection. I would argue that perfection is often overrated in the business world (an entirely different post for a different day), and automation will get you 80% “there” most of the time.

If, as suggested above, you are practicing the art of failing often and failing early, you may find that automation can further give you the flexibility, the agility, and the insight you need at a fraction of the cost - that is financial, time and overall resources cost.

Find yourself
a digital partner

An experienced CRO consultant will help you optimize your resources to maximize ROI on every point above, and beyond. Whether to help direct resources in building an intelligence warehouse where the rewards will be felt the fastest, to set revolving goals and KPIs with your teams, or to deploy the right level of automation to enable your staff to focus on the stuff that matters

Re-inventing the wheel is rarely a sound approach in a world where resources are finite. An experienced partner will help you understand where you sit, where to build and where to outsource thus maximizing digital impact.
