0

Resources such as Meetup.com connect business leaders and marketing strategists as they share business solutions that keep up with trends in an ever-changing landscape. Agile Marketing meetups help Agile Marketing specialists, new businesses, and independents alike improve performance, gain efficiency, and champion the customer.

Companies that employ Agile for Marketing solutions are three times more likely to see an increase in profits. Recently, CMG spoke about operationalizing agile marketing at a Boston Agile Marketing Meet-up about how Agile for Marketing (A4M™) strategies can bring businesses quick, profitable solutions.

In the ever-changing world of business, one can never be too connected. On Meetup.com, Agile Marketing meetups are quickly becoming a world-wide networking strategy where businesses share winning solutions. Data-driven marketing trends and the growth of technology have lead companies to gain record profits by deploying an agile mindset and methodology.

At a recent Boston Meetup, CMG spoke about operationalizing agile marketing and how Agile for Marketing (A4M™) strategies can help bring businesses quick, profitable solutions.

Where there is new technology, there is money. In the data-driven business market, companies are looking for new solutions to bring in record profits. For over a decade, Agile Marketing has helped companies soar into the digital age through team-oriented, results-driven strategies. Meetups are becoming more common, as business strategists pool their resources together and deliver the best approaches to agile marketing. CMG recently spoke at a meetup in Boston about the benefits of Agile for Marketing (A4M™) in bringing companies results in no time through efficiency, team building, and a customer focus.

Recap of the Agile Marketing Meetup in Boston

CMG’s slide show of the Agile Marketing meetup in Boston is full of great information as well as a video that explains how Agile Marketing aids companies in transforming businesses by focusing on culture, employees, customer experience, processes, tools, and measurement.

When these elements all work together, they can make any business work smarter, faster, and become more successful.

How Does It Work?

  • Agile for Marketing (A4M™) builds teams of five to 100+ to figure out better business solutions
  • Change comes from within — The organization culture of the company is redesigned
  • The CMO works with teams to change company behavior (programs, creative, and Web)
  • Strategic drivers align operations
  • Better leadership leads to change
  • Once team goals are aligned and objectives are set, there is a sprint to action
  • The process is repeated monthly, with annual goals and weekly sprints

Approach Impact

As with the four elements, agile is powerful because of its simplicity:

  • Collaborative — Agile Marketing means working together in groups to enact change.
  • Iterative — An experimental approach to business means taking risks and learning strengths and opportunities.
  • Empowering — A confident, motivated employee can get the job done.
  • Customer Experience — Each employee’s interaction with the customer is a focal touch point.

10 Common Pitfalls for Marketing Organizations Adopting Agile

At the meetup, CMG went into detail about the most common mistakes companies make when adopting the Agile for Marketing method.

  1. Unclear objectives and strategy
  2. Noncommittal leadership
  3. Hesitant to change
  4. Inflexible team members
  5. Wrong stakeholders

  7. Cautious culture
