You may have noticed we're fans of using practical models as tools to support marketing strategy development? I think most would agree that models are useful "Mind Tools" to structure thinking and communicate a strategy, but there's a problem.
In our free, illustrated guide to 15 classic planning models diagrams we explain what they are and give examples of why and how to apply them in business. In the Essential Models guide we have selected what we see as the classic,most popular models that have stood the test of time and we think are still relevant in todaya€™s era of omnichannel marketing. Please select which you find most useful of the 15 models covered in our guide - you can select more than one or suggest others. Some marketing models are digital focused while others apply equally to digital and traditional forms of communication. This new guide, published in 2016 lists 10 models that can be used by marketing professionals and students for digital audits, planning and strategy.
Since I'm a digital marketer, I have my own views on the relevance of these, indeed in my books I have often included them. So before we wrote the guide I thought it would be nice to share an overview of the relevant models here for anyone passing this way who isn't familiar with them. I think it's right this is at the start of the list since it's still widely used and I think is a simple way to think through how a company markets its products.
Unique Selling Proposition is the concept that brands should make it clear to potential buyers why they are different and better than the competition.
This is a simple concept and an essential message to communicate online since the core brand message often isn't clear.
This well known, essential MBA model categorises products offered by a business in a portfolio based on their performance rating them as Stars, Cash Cows, Dogs and Question Marks as below. I find this isn't so applicable in the online marketing world for small and medium businesses - it's more of a Big Business corporate strategy model. This model allows marketers to visualise a branda€™s relative position to competitors in the market place by plotting consumer perceptions of the brand and competitor brands against the attributes that drive purchase. The creation of an engaging online brand is so important to success in digital marketing, it's a pity there aren't more effective branding models. Customer Lifetime Value is the concept used to assess what a customer is worth, based on the present value of future revenue attributed to a customera€™s relationship with a product.
A different class of models to others, this is more of calculation model - covered in Chapter 6 of my Internet Marketing Book. Ansoff's model dates back to the 1960s, but I still cover it in the books to show how companies should "think out of the box" with new opportunities for their digital strategies by considering new opportunities for market and product development rather than simply market penetration which misses the opportunities of digital marketing for me.
This model shows the steps a person takes before becoming loyal to a brand as they move through the stages of prospect, customer, client, supporter and advocate. Loyalty models are useful as a way of thinking through the opportunities to generate lifetime value. As an extension of the traditional PEST model, this analysis framework is used to assess the impact of macro-environmental factors on a product or brand - political, economical, social, technological, legal and economic.
However, PESTLE is still widely taught and Annmarie Hanlon is a fan so to explain it's value to me and others she has this in-depth post on how to use the PEST or PESTLE model.
Yes this one features in my books and I reference a classic 2001 paper by Porter on applying the Five Forces to the Internet. This diffusion innovation model plots the natural path of a product as it moves through the stages of Introduction, Growth, Maturity, Saturation and Decline.
This three stage STP process involves analysing which distinct customer groups exist and which segment the product best suits before implementing the communications strategy tailored for the chosen target group. As a model which is focused on delivering relevant products, services and communications to the customer and so generating value for an organisation, this is essential for every marketer to understand and apply in practice.
This acronym stands for Situation, Objectives, Strategy, Tactics, Actions, Control and is a framework used when creating marketing plans.
Finally, I wanted to thank the Chartered Institute of MarketingA who prompted the idea for this post when they were celebrating their centenary and they ran voting around different models. I tell the students to use the 7Ps (or 8 with Principles (ethics etc)) to review the competitors and use the Ps plus capabilities and resources for the internal review. Completely agree about TOWs too – we always recommend that rather than a backwards looking SWOT. The concept I write about is taken from Bob Lauterborn, professor of advertising at the University of North Carolina. An intensive, 4-week online workshop designed to accelerate leaders to become change agents for the future.
The latest book, Poke The Box is a call to action about the initiative you're taking - in your job or in your life, and Seth once again breaks the traditional publishing model by releasing it through The Domino Project.
Seth's most personal book, a look at the end of the industrial economy and what happens next. More than 3,000,000 copies downloaded, perhaps the most important book to read about creating ideas that spread. A short, illustrated, kids-like book that takes the last chapter of Icarus and turns it into something worth sharing. More than 10,000 people attended the Lincoln Douglas debates, and yet they debated without amplification.
Shouting destroys intimacy, and it hurts our impact, the impact that comes from authenticity.
We feel speech and words long before we hear the words, and we hear the words long before we understand them.
A restaurant that's too small for its following creates pent-up demand and can thrive as it lays plans to expand. There are occasional counterexamples of ventures that fail because they were too small when they gained customer traction.
If you hope to be working, producing value or merely alive in ten years, his new book (out in June) is essential. The people who read his previous book about the future (New Rules) in 1998 are truly grateful for the decade-long head start it gave them. It's rare that you can spend $33 on two books and have your life so profoundly altered.


So much easier to turn someone away than it is to patiently engage with them, the way you were welcomed when you were in their shoes.
And so, Wikipedia has transformed itself into a club that's not particularly interested in welcoming new editors. And companies that used to grow by absorbing talent via acquisitions, cease to do so. When we tell someone new, "that not how we do things around here," do we also encourage them to learn the other way and to try again? Are we even capable of explaining the status quo, or is the way we do things set merely because we forgot that we could do it better? Change comes from new habits, from acting as if, from experiencing the inevitable discomfort of becoming.
When we run a new session of the altMBA, we ask each student to write a short bio and submit a picture. A week later, we share the nicely laid out PDF with the extraordinary class that has been assembled and then give people a week to update their bio for mistakes, etc. The altMBA taught me that there is no limit on empathy, or its positive and powerful application in business. The altMBA taught me that fear is not an excuse, and helped me learn how to silence my lizard brain.
Yes, it can lead to wholesale destruction, but it's the incessant (but much smaller) daily tidal force that moves all boats, worldwide. And far more powerful than either is the incredible impact of seepage, of moisture, of the liquid that makes things grow.
Facebook and other legendary companies didn't get that way all at once, and neither will you.
The person with power demands an accommodation, or switches the venue, or has an admin call you instead of calling you himself. Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, see Frequently Asked Questions for Using Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016. The buying decision process starts with identifying the buying needs, followed by identifying the product characteristics. While evaluating the quotations, the buyer may revisit the 'make or buy decision' if the vendor quotations do not meet requirements. Value analysis is used in the firm to assess the value of the product to be purchased and consequently to take 'make or buy' decisions. There are different factors that influence organizational buying behavior such as environmental factors, organizational factors, group factors, and individual factors. Sending a clear message to a well-defined target audience was the only way to build a brand. Use the BCIA logo in your ads, business cards, presentations, promotional literature, and website.
Encourage your clients to visit our Learn About Disorders Treated By Biofeedback section located in our Consumers menu. Explain what your BCIA certification and continuing education mean to prospective clients and referral sources. Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) procedures follow the Department of Health & Human Services Guidelines.

It should be driven by the desire to develop students into the best they can be as human beings. This is a video presentation from a live speaking event at the Spotlight on Learning Conference.
We believe a clear, simple model gives us a framework to assess how we're doing things now compared to our competitors and plan growth strategies for the future. Over the years, A many models have been developed and some are academic rather than of practical application in the "real world". But which are the most useful - do take our poll to share which you think are of the most practical use and are valuable in understanding opportunities to grow a business.
In fact, most are included in my Digital Marketing: Strategy, Implementation and Practice book.
CLV is mainly important online for transactional sites and certainly investment decisions like allowable cost per acquisition (CPA) must be taken with future customer purchases and attrition rates considered.
The four growth strategies are market penetration, market development, product development and diversification.
I find students tend to review these in-depth at the expense of creating innovative strategies. But, I personally think it has limited practical value - yes we know customers have more bargaining power online.
It features in all my books and I know Paul Smith, who created itA well - he's my co-author on Emarketing Excellence. A It also prompted the idea for a free guide to help explain the value of models for planning. I am currently writing a MSc Strategic Digital Marketing paper analysing a company’s current strategic digital marketing practice and management. COM (Competitors, Other (indirect) competitors and Market) is the micro environment – needs constant review as it changes quickly. CIM senior examiners on Diploma in Digital Marketing, failure of students to use this digital marketing model versus old tried and tested models like PESTLE, Ansoff and even SOSTAC!!, but doesn’t get mentioned here, and seems to be a lack of scholarly articles on it?
It’s so frustrating especially as the course text (Digital Marketing Chaffey, Ellis-Chadwick) has no mention of it either. BCG and Porters are higher-level tools and probably most appropriate in larger organisations. I learnt this model from the IDM digital diploma, but although I now know it has been used i direct marketing for decades, it wasn’t around when I did my MBA, not is it a concept that is understood by many business professionals.
It is always the work of a mature person (or  an organization) who cares enough about the later to do something important in the now.
Having a large and varied audience used to mean yelling, it used to be physically taxing, it would put our entire body on alert. It might take you an hour or two to read certain pages—if you're smart enough to take notes and brainstorm as you go. Nascent groups with open arms become mature groups too set in their ways to evangelize and grow their membership, too stuck to engage, change and thrive.
Eternal September, the never-ending stream of repetitive questions and mistakes can wear out even the most committed host. You guessed it, without missing a beat, that same clerk started asking me for my driver's license number (and yes, I did it one more time, and we moved on to my social security number).
Get patient with your toddler, and you might discover your toddler starts to seek a new way to get your attention. It's because being surrounded by people on the same journey as you causes you to level up. After the altMBA, I know that I am not alone and that the right people will succeed with me. I am more confident, lighter, and confident in my ability to create the change in the world that I want to see.


Managements have realized that a good procurement department helps in the growth of the company and increases the profits considerably. If a particular vendor's quotations are up to the buyer's expectations, then the contract is awarded to the vendors. It involves modifications in the form of change in supplier, change in terms of the contract, etc.
The different models of organizational buying behavior discuss these factors with differing levels of attention being given to each. We have expanded our website to provide new marketing tools and launched a media campaign using Facebook, Google, and Twitter to assist you.
This will help your colleagues and prospective clients learn more about the value of your credential.
This may include your ads, business cards, conference name badges, conference submissions, presentations, promotional literature, and publications. Healthcare professionals who achieve BCIA Certification demonstrate commitment to professionalism by completing basic degree and educational requirements, endorsing a rigorous code of professional conduct, learning to apply clinical biofeedback skills during mentorship, and passing a written examination. BCIA was established in 1981 to certify individuals who meet education and training standards in biofeedback and to progressively recertify those who advance their knowledge through continuing education. Think of your BCIA directory listing as a free Yellow Pages business card ad for your practice, compared to a single-line business listing.
Savvy professionals use interviews, press releases about their certification and recertification, and YouTube videos to inexpensively reach their audience.
Provide educational presentations to local organizations, patient support groups, and referral sources.
They're also great for communicating the purpose and reason behind a strategy you are pursuing. Because of this, we've just produced a new guide free for all members on digital marketing models specifically. But it suffers from a push mentality completely out-of-keeping with modern digital marketing approaches of listening to and engaging customers in participation through social median marketing. For example, to do a thorough SWOT analysis one has to do a PESTLE (taught to me as STEEPLE+E) and Porters five forces to fully analyze both macro and micro environment. But I also think SWOT can only identify so much and we need other tools to expand the results. We never ended up working together, but his book probably did me more good than the project would have. Maybe they don't actually want a discount, just the knowledge that they tried to get one.
The procurement function has both task-oriented objectives and non-task objectives, and is usually governed by a clearly articulated purchase policy. If the decision is to buy, then the buying process continues with the search for vendors followed by qualifying them. In a new task, the firm buys a totally new product or an existing product for the first time. A buying center involves people from across the departments of the firm to make the buying decisions for the firm.
We offer a range of online marketing services for your franchise from website development and support to assistance in linking an existing hotel site for optimal online exposure.
In fact, many marketers are facing an increasingly complex landscape of consumers, media platforms and service providers that can cause them to spend more time trying to save their jobs than creating effective marketing.Multifarious marketing is multiple groups working toward multiple goals on multiple platforms and reaching multiple audiences with one core message. Currently, more than 1,500 healthcare professionals have achieved this certification in 25 countries. It gives details on the 10 key digital marketing models, so you get the most relevant marketing models for your business. I also think it under-represents the power of intermediaries like comparison sites and publishers in the online world. Threats can kill your business and opportunities are the future but if your mind set is internal you look outside with blinkers on.
As I sat in the New York Athletic Club, my cheap suit dripping wet (you can't take off your jacket at the New York Athletic Club), I tried to break the ice by telling the moose joke.
The vendors are then requested to send in their proposals and quotations relating to the purchase requirement. Vendor rating is performed to appraise vendors from time to time with respect to the products supplied and services rendered; it is done on the parameters of price, quality, delivery, and service. We can help with hotel revenue and yield management and enhancement through Internet positioning, rate comparisons, packaging, and rate indexing.
While a business card ad costs a high monthly fee, your expanded listing is free when you certify or recertify. Where appropriate, display the BCIA logo and your designation on a PowerPoint slide, and explain what they mean. These days, your company’s message should be about your core purpose and benefits rather than the tightly-defined needs of some small group. Build a daily schedule daily schedule of whom you will call and which leads you will follow up. Overall, people may have different preferences, but most useful is kind of pointless since they are inter-connected. Here the firm purchases the same material from the same supplier without any alterations in the contract. Live out your message in the media you choose and the campaigns you run.Multiple PlatformsUsing a single platform to deliver your message (whether it’s TV, Facebook, print or email) is just leaving customers and sales on the table. Smart marketers now expect their plans to be integrated, but the complexity comes in ideation. The very successful Tweet-a-Beer campaign by tenfour + Waggener Edstrom must have been created in an environment where there was no predisposition to the 30-second TV spot. Most marketing teams don’t conceive of ideas outside of their experience and comfort zone. If new ideas are just old ideas combined or used in a new way, people who have diverse experiences and skill sets simply have more to draw from. Design schools are hip to this and have begun turning out graduates with broad-based skills and knowledge, and the best agencies are snatching them up.
ROI is tough to measure, and CMOs are being pressured more and more by the rest of the C-suite to produce.
Is growing a Facebook following important, or is traffic on your own website a better goal? In a single year, the family-man was named AMA-Atlanta’s Agency Marketer of the Year, Catalyst Magazine’s No. When not brainstorming at the office or helping a client, McMullen spends time with his wife and two kids, probably reading Dr.
