How do your digital marketing capabilities compare?

We think it’s really helpful for companies to review their current capabilities so that they can compare to competitors and then create a roadmap for where they need to prioritise for digital transformation.

Our Digital Excellence capability framework will help you review how effectively your digital marketing is managed across seven key areas:

  • A. Your Strategic approach
  • B. Evaluation and performance improvement process
  • C. Management buy-in to investment in digital marketing
  • D. Resourcing and structure for digital including integration
  • E. Data and infrastructure or platforms
  • F. Integrated customer communications across Paid-Owned-Earned media
  • G. Integrated customer experiences across desktop and mobile devices

Digital Marketing Capabilities Model

How does your business or your clients compare? Use our free interactive benchmarking tool to review your capability – it’s free within the members area.

Expert members use our detailed Digital Marketing Healthcheck spreadsheet  to find out. Our Digital Healthcheck is an Excel-based digital marketing audit which enables you to review your current capability and identify areas you must improve.
