The new marketing standard requires the right data and content


Everyone wants to write amazing customer-focused content, although it’s often easier said than done. There are many reasons why, but most come down to one key thing: having the right data to know what content to create – and where to deliver it.

A new report from Uberflip and Heinz Marketing, The New Marketing Standard, a Benchmark Report, surveyed 283 marketers to understand how they felt about the content they are creating today and its role in the B2B buyer’s journey. And the findings agree data is critical.

But first, what is the new marketing standard?

The new standard is centered around a buyer experience that’s built around ease of access and discovery, frictionless consumption, personalized and relevant suggestions, and curated engagement paths – a buyer experience designed to delight, engage, enable, and empower better decisions.

It’s about the right content

The importance of content in the buyer’s journey is pretty much a given, but that doesn’t mean marketers are good at creating and leveraging it. In this study, 48.4% said it was either not or somewhat effective. It seems like effectiveness is more of a problem for the technology industry compared to financial services, healthcare or manufacturing industries. Why? The thinking is that tech is a faster-moving industry and it’s challenging to keep up with what’s changing, and that means content is often outdated before you hit publish.

The answer to fix the problem isn’t about money. It’s about the right strategy.

We saw that a minority 4% of respondents with effective content spend less than a quarter of their budget generating demand. On the other hand, nearly 1 in 5 respondents with ineffective content spend over 75% of their budget to generate demand.

Simply spending money isn’t enough to dictate whether your content will be effective. To reliably find success, content needs to be created, produced, and utilized strategically.

Here’s another interesting finding:

Almost 47% of marketers aren’t great at supporting the content needs of other parts of the organization. The focus for many, it seems, is on the needs of marketing – brand awareness and lead generation. This problem appears to correlate directly with whether the brand has effective or ineffective content: ineffective content is not widely shared.

The idea of a content center of excellence would help alleviate the challenge of not creating content for other parts of the business. It might move content development out of marketing, or broaden the role of the content development team within marketing, to support the content needs of all parts of an organization. I would also suggest that a marketing team whose primary focus is brand awareness and lead generation is missing opportunities to meet and support customers and potential customers. As Jay Acunzo, from MarketingShowrunners says, “Great marketing isn’t about who arrives; it’s about who stays.”

Creating better content marketing programs

It all comes down to creating a strong and scalable content marketing program. When these marketers were asked what is lacking in their current content marketing program, personalization topped the list, following by having enough content and the right variety of content. Number four on the list was a lack of data/insights on what content works.

However, as the report points out, you need data/insights to prevent the top three program deficiencies.

content program types

From The New Marketing Standard, from Uberflip and Heinz Marketing

Marketers in this report said that personalization was their biggest problem and listed it as their number one area for improvement.

Personalization facilitates relationships. It shows your audience that you not only know them, but that you care about their outcomes. Today, successful sales and marketing relies on knowing your audience to a much greater degree – to understand where they’re coming from, what they’re looking for, and what they want to achieve. And today’s buyer has come to expect that same level of attention.

The most common type of personalization the marketers do is persona-based (title, pain point, role, and responsibility), followed by company, buying stage, level of intent or behaviors, time or situation-based, and 1:1 personalization.

Improving the level of actionable data/insights comes in at number two. I would shift those two priorities around.

If you think about what’s wrong with most brand web experiences, does a personalized experience come to the top of your list? Maybe it depends on what type of personalization we’re talking about because there are several levels, not all of which are critical. Also, personalization of any type requires a solid understanding of your customers and what content works for them at different stages. That requires data. So, shouldn’t  data and insights be number one?

The marketers did, however, indicate that if they could add one thing to their current content marketing program, it would be better insights into content performance.

Let’s focus on improving data to improve insights and decisions

The biggest challenge with marketing data is that it’s in many different marketing technologies and as much as marketers would like their marketing stack to play nicely together, for many it’s still very siloed.

It’s no small job to integrate your marketing solutions, so what many marketers still find themselves doing is moving from one solution to another, pulling the data they need and then trying to match it together in a way that makes sense. Others tend to focus on only one or two datasets from key applications, running the risk of not seeing the full picture.

There are solutions out there that can help, like customer data platforms and data management platforms but some are for marketing data only. What’s needed is a complete data view of the customer journey to help marketers figure out the full content strategy. Even if a marketer does bring a tech solution in-house to give them a wider view of the customer, many don’t have the knowledge or resources to leverage it effectively.

Every marketer wants to be data-driven. Every marketer wants to create personalized content-driven experiences. The question is, what’s the best path to get there?


Brand Personality: Not Just Marketing Fluff

Creative picture of fluffy cloud sustained by human hand.

Brand has changed a lot in the digital age, from complete ownership by the company establishing the brand, now to complete ownership by consumers who engage with the brand. Consumers may start with that initial brand message but ultimately embrace it unexpected ways which ultimately do define the brand. In other words, you can want your brand to stand for something, but it won’t if the people you’re targeting don’t buy into that. JCPenney and Ron Johnson’s attempt to remake the chain appeal to a younger, hipper audience are a now-classic example of how it’s always consumers who win when it comes to who ultimately gets to define your brand.

Since the time when consumers firmly took the reins from companies over who gets to define the brand, there has been the additional complication of Millennials, who want more from their brands than just values or attributes. They want their brands to stand for something. At the same time, their willingness to engage with brands has shifted away from passively consuming advertising to wanting to interact more directly – and they prefer to do that primarily through digital channels like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

Brands now have to operate in this interactive space. To-date, most of them haven’t figured that out, and the old tools of brand and marketing haven’t served them well in navigating the shift. But in the end it’s not about the tools so much as redefining how those tools are used.

The Term “Persona” Has Baggage

Today In: Business

In marketing, the term “persona” has been so overused that if it comes up in conversation today it is more likely to be met with groans than with enthusiasm. It was originally applied to consumer segments, as a mechanism for bringing life to what was ultimately a collection of averaged attributes. This was helpful in turning a pile of data into something that people could relate to, but I think part of its downfall was that it created a false sense that the company “knew” its customers, because “Look, my customer segmentations have names and jobs and pretty stock photo images attached to them, so I must know exactly who they are!”

The problem is that averages (even in carefully crafted customer segmentations) hide a lot of variability. I might fit most of the profile attributes of a soccer mom, but if you called me that I would laugh at you. “Soccer mom” was initially most useful to car companies looking to sell minivans – which in turn became such a shortcut way to identify a soccer mom that it became a self-reinforcing attribute.

Me, on the other hand – I would rather die than own a minivan and am proud of the fact that I have nearly finished navigating my kids’ non-driving years having never owned one. If you tried to target me based on the assumption that I followed all of the attributes of a soccer mom, rather than just “most” of them, you would be demonstrating to me your actual lack of understanding of me and your total irrelevancy to my life and needs. When brands operate by assuming that the persona is the segment, they lose because there are just too many places where you can get it wrong, and with the attention span of today’s consumers, if you get it wrong even once, that may be the only chance a consumer gives you.

When it comes to brand, though, persona is not total garbage – if we can get past the baggage associated with how it was used in the past. “Persona” in customer segmentation was trying to put one face on something that actually represented a large group of unique individuals. That was always doomed to fail. Brand, though, should be clean and concise and cohesive – and should only represent one thing. One company, one brand. And therefore, one face.

But wait, you say. It may be one brand, but it is represented by many different people. In retail, there are potentially millions of store associates out there representing the brand every day – before we even start bringing marketing people into play. So how do you reconcile one face against all of these faces?

One Face, Many Voices

Yes it’s true that store associates are a varied group and hopefully bring their own personalities to the brand in a way that is authentic to both themselves and the brand. I would distinguish that by thinking about “one face but many voices”. I’ll come back to that in a couple paragraphs.

But let’s go back to the idea that Millennials (and, let’s face it, Gen Z and increasingly a growing number of older generations that have given in to the social media void). They want to engage with brands in digital channels first. And they are very adept at blocking or ignoring any of the traditional forms of “interruption media” where brands historically had their chance to make a case for consumers to get to know them.

Digital – especially social media – is the great leveler when it comes to brand. Unless you want to confuse customers, you pretty much only get one social profile for your whole company. And your social profile is the same size and is fighting for consumer attention with the same exact set of tools as anybody else (sometimes juiced by ad dollars, but again – easily ignored). When I talk to small retailers bemoaning how to compete against Amazon, my first question is, what are you doing on social media? Because the smallest small business looks exactly the same size as Amazon does on Facebook – the dimensions of your profile page are the same. What you get surfaced in a post is the same size.

You get one profile page for your brand. That’s it. Yes, brands often establish other accounts, sometimes for corporate giving, sometimes for recruiting, things that focus on different aspects of what the company is trying to accomplish. But when it comes to the flagship, “who are we and what do we stand for” brand communication, you get one page. One face. I haven’t seen any company try to avoid that flagship brand profile by giving over all brand communication to a bunch of individuals like “Jane Smith23, brand ambassador”. There is one brand and one face to that brand.

have seen companies actually try to shut down all those thousands or millions of brand representatives that exist in stores or within corporate headquarters. I’ve seen them try to force everything back to the corporate message, trying to silence voices so that they don’t accidentally do something that is not “on brand” (or worse, embarrassing, offensive, or illegal). I understand the impulses that drive those behaviors – Taco Bell Nachos guy, anyone? But even though you pretty much have no choice but to fire a guy who posts pictures of himself allegedly peeing on a plate of nachos in what appears to be the restaurant’s kitchen or food storage area, there’s also a recognition that this one employee is (hopefully) not representative of the brand as a whole. There is definitely lack of judgment at play, whether just at the individual employee level, or at the level of the manager who hired him, but that’s different than an overall brand statement.

Over time, brands are getting better at working with this one face/many voices model. Walmart once experimented with a social profile of an alleged employee (some people suspected it was all made up) named Kevin. Kevin was supposed to offer insights into life as a Walmart employee (I would link to it but the profile is lost to the depths of Google, in part swamped by the fact that Walmart has a director of communications now who is also – coincidentally? – named Kevin). Kevin’s profile was one early attempt at providing a way for employees to both be themselves and a brand ambassador (no matter how cringeworthy and PR-washed his profile was).

The pendulum has swung far since then, with the most recent public attempt coming from Macy’s. The company created “Style Crew”, a way for employees to use both their own social savvy and the fact that they work for Macy’s in order to make some extra coin. Individual voices, supported by a brand.

A Brand Face, Not A Bland Face

This progress is all good. Brands should not be stifling the voices of their most passionate advocates – namely, the people who decided to tie their own economic fate to that of the company they represent. Employees. But all that progress has happened on the “many voices” side of the equation, not on the “one face” side.

When you look at brands’ social profiles, they are as corporate lawyer sanitized as you can get. Offend no one. Say nothing of meaning or import. Drive as relentlessly positive, sanitized message as possible. And then, if you’re not stuffing that feed full of posts exhorting how awesome your company is, you’d better be stuffing that feed full of products and promotions, because otherwise, why are we paying this social media intern anyway?

This is the state of brands’ faces. In the place where consumers are most likely to find them, brands are doing the least to get their attention. If Facebook is a cocktail party where everyone is chatting and joking and getting to know each other, your brand is “that guy” – the one going around talking about how awesome he is, and by the way do you want to buy some stuff from me?

The level of blandness is so bad, that when KFC – who has a natural, in-built brand persona in the Colonel, which they have been using to great effect – actually went viral and made news for unfollowing everyone on Twitter except for eleven people: six guys named Herb and the five former Spice girls, a reference to KFC’s recipe of “eleven herbs and spices”. And then they one-upped their own game, by rewarding the guy who first spotted it (the portrait they sent is truly awesome).

Personality is Effectively Free

What does KFC have that everyone else seems to lack? You guessed it: personality. Now, personality will only take you so far. At some point you have to execute on the promises made by that personality. If KFC is fun and edgy online, but then you go to a KFC restaurant and have a horrible experience, I would consider that a wasted opportunity. But guess what? That opportunity cost them the price of a social media intern (and the cost of a fantastically horrible painting, but that’s still way less than the equivalent spend on ad words required to get the same exposure).

And that’s the point. Other than the cost of a social media jockey, personality costs nothing to execute. It does require a strong brand to serve as a compass for both what is going to resonate and what is appropriate. And it requires some people who have been steeped in what the brand stands for enough that they can both come up with brilliant ideas like eleven “Herbs and Spices”, and also interact with others spontaneously on social media – as Wendy’s does very well.

It’s also probably not a coincidence that Wendy’s, like KFC, has a natural “persona” in the Wendy mascot. The company has not chosen to leverage her in that way (though consumers have), probably out of respect for the real Wendy, but that still works out just fine. It’s not about what Wendy’s wants in that regard, it’s about how consumers connect. As a new generation embraces the Wendy’s brand, a generation that is unfamiliar with the real Wendy’s backstory, then the brand has a mascot ready-made to come to life in digital spaces.

What If You Don’t Have a Natural Mascot?

Companies that don’t already have a built-in mascot don’t necessarily need to run out and gin one up. The face of a brand doesn’t need to have a literal face to resonate with consumers. The first place to focus is on brand values, and what those values imply about a personality. In other words, what kind of person would share these values?

There are other questions to ask, and things to think about, in creating a brand personality. And that will be my focus in this month’s series of articles. How do you define a brand personality? What is that personality’s values and passions? If your brand was a person, who would they be?

It wasn’t that long ago that these questions would’ve been scoffed at by anyone but the fluffiest of fluffy marketing people. In the age of digital, however, they are questions that could very well be the difference between customer relevancy and bankruptcy. And that’s not fluffy at all.


Lionsgate Play launches their first marketing campaign with Havas Creative


Premium entertainment service Lionsgate Play has launched its first marketing campaign. It has awarded its creative mandate to Havas Creative India, the business will be handled by the agency’s Mumbai office.

For the brand’s launch campaign Lionsgate and Havas Creative decided to go with a clutter breaking quirky out of home campaign that has gone live across Delhi, Mumbai and Pune.

“We have always taken a bold stand, be it content where our super heroes are un-conventional like Hunger Games or while establishing a brand image, we like to be fearlessly bold in our approach. While OTT is an exciting category with many brands focusing on key titles to market themselves, we are looking at a consumer connect early in our journey so we can be relevant to our core audiences,” Rohit Jain, MD Lionsgate Play, India, said.

The idea is to showcase multiple genres of movies to the same consumer emphasising the breadth of Lionsgate Play’s premium content offering hence the brand tapped into prime outdoor presence in select pockets across the city.

“In a content- first era, Lionsgate Play brings a great mix of premium quality content to the Indian audiences, given our Havas Vivendi offering in India, which has content at its core, our partnership seems perfect. We look forward to building a differentiated and unique positioning for brand Lionsgate Play in dynamic Indian market,” Arindam Sengupta, managing partner – West and South, Havas Mumbai, said.

The campaign is also tapping digital platforms where the call to action will be stronger and lead the user directly to the streaming partner’s app.

“The idea emerged from the insight that one could watch blockbusters anywhere with LionsGate Play. And that too blockbusters from every genre. This led to a clutter breaking campaign that attracts eye balls with its witty innuendos and its quirky approach,” Gururaj Rao, executive creative director, Havas Mumbai, said.

Lionsgate Play, a premium streaming service from Lionsgate India and Starz, offers curated Hollywood content for the Indian consumers, with a large extent of the content available in multiple Indian languages.
