As consumer use of digital channels accelerates in senior living and healthcare, your business becomes increasingly reliant on marketing technology to make data-driven decisions, gain competitive advantage and improve ROI. Relying exclusively on external partners or online lead aggregators is not a sustainable strategy as data and digital marketing becomes mission critical. The question of how to build, buy or partner to increase your organization’s in-house marketing capabilities takes center stage.
Prove it or Lose it
Increased internal marketing spending brings greater scrutiny. If you can’t prove the business value or create proforma estimates, it hard to build the marketing capabilities you need or, at times, even keep the budget you already have.
Marketing automation platforms (MAP), CRM systems, and analytics platforms mean marketing leaders are now responsible for larger slices of a company’s total budget, including having the people that can understand and use marketing technology. Making the case for greater marketing spend or full-time staff can be a real challenge, especially in organizations that are less experienced in evaluating marketing ROI or in the process of transitioning from traditional to digital channels.
