This week we’ve found the six marketing metrics, courtesy of Hubspot, which definitely falls under the ‘genuinely useful’. Enjoy!
“As marketers, we work tirelessly to move the needle on a sometimes laundry-list of metrics. But with studies that show 73% of executives don’t believe that marketing drives demand and revenue, we have to make sure that we can prove the ROI of our marketing efforts. ”
This useful marketing guide, brought to you by Hubspot, offers a marketing cheat sheet of metrics and a guide that looks at the most critical measures of marketing. These range from six marketing metrics that prove the value of your marketing by detailing formulas that enable you to calculate metrics along with explanations to interpret your own marketing success. Through use of scenario, Hubspot offers scenarios that demonstrate why these metrics are important.

Dedicated company Ecard creator Ecard Mint have been busy over the summer, developing the new website, and creating a range of B2C and B2B ecards for companies to send.
The website which can be found at www.ecardmint.com is due for full launch in early October 2013, but there is a lot to do before it can go live. Once the developers have completed all pages and the site is populated with animated and static ecards, a few round of testing will take place to ensure that everything is running smoothly and all technical glitches are ironed out before allowing the public access.
Ecards offer a wealth of potential applications and benefits for the business client.
- Christmas, birthday and other occasion-based greetings to customers and staff.
- Customer reward and appreciation ecards eg. thank you for your custom, sorry for a customer service issue, thank you for joining/renewing a subscription or membership, renewal reminder notice.
- Corporate announcements and events eg. company news, new shop/branch opening, change of address, key company milestones and successes, event/conference/exhibition invitations.
- Marketing communications and campaigns eg. launch of new products and services, sales/special offers/discounts, keeping business contacts warm without over-selling, engendering brand likeability, gaining at-desk attention with an animated mini-ad.
- Employee motivation, recognition and reward programmes eg. showing appreciation to staff and colleagues for a job well done, rewarding and celebrating staff achievements, acknowledging staff anniversaries/promotions/retirements, anncouncing office parties (Christmas, leaving, celebration, awards nights, etc).
- Charitable fundraising eg. thank you for donating, supporter contact and appreciation, updates on progress against fundraising targets.
A versatile and highly cost-effective marketing tool may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word ‘ecard’. However, in recent years the use of ecards for business has seen a significant increase across several key markets including the USA, UK and Australia. Typically, businesses have started by migrating their annual company Christmas card mailing from print to ecard format, then, realising the considerable benefits of digital greetings, have expanded their usage to a broader range of marketing applications.
What makes the ecard such an appealing addition to the marketer’s communication toolbox? Why are business ecards being embraced by companies both small and large? How can public sector organisations and non-profits leverage this cost-effective tool to help their marketing budgets go further?
Here on the Ecard Mint blog we’ll be exploring these types of questions on a weekly basis (you’re busy people, we don’t want to bombard you). We’ll share our experiences of corporate ecards and their potential benefits for a wide range of business purposes – from marketing to internal staff communications.
Once the Ecard Mint website is launched and in full swing from around September, we’ll add some ‘how to’ posts as well as client perspectives and case studies. We’ll also keep our eye on the wider digital marketing world and share some interesting resources, snippets and perspectives.
We look forward to sharing with you and would be delighted to hear your views and experiences.
