Your Digital Transformation Guide: 6 Key Insights for Success

Digital transformation is key to staying competitive in an ever-shifting, disruptive world.

You must have a digital transformation guide to help your organization survive and thrive in the new, digitally powered global economy.

Why marketers must adapt

If there’s anything we’ve learned over the last 18 months, it’s that things can and do change in an instant. That means being adaptable has never been more important for all of us.

This is true in our personal lives as well as in our role as marketers… whether we’re keeping up with shifting consumer behavior, anticipating customer needs, driving full-funnel results, meeting new employee expectations, understanding privacy regulations, or preparing for a cookieless future.

How to approach digital transformation

Here are 6 key insights from leading brands and change catalysts around the world:

01
Commit to customer-centricity: The only way to know what, where, and how to alter is by obtaining extensive, in-depth input from customers.
03
Involve more teams upfront: In the past, we ran very linear marketing processes. Now – with personalization, automation as key elements for success at scale – we must have more teams involved from the very beginning: media, technology, data, etc.
05
Stay open to learning: Be vulnerable and open to acknowledging there are always areas to improve.
02
Use art and science together: Digital transformation is about developing empathy at scale with both data and creative excellence.
04
Learn by doing pilot: Think of digital transformation as a journey where you’ll discover the steps as you take action. It’s a constant evolution. Learn to iterate.
06
Listen to the markets: It’s not just about customers and their choices. The world is changing. From a digital point of view, there are trends like programmatic advertising, artificial intelligence, Augmented Reality, voice search optimization, chatbots, etc. What we can understand about these in relation to our customers?

Start simple, stay nimble.

As we all know, the one thing that’s constant is change.

It’s been almost two years of whiplash with a raging pandemic, political sparring, racial injustice, and more. We’ve all added “pivot, don’t pause” to our marketing playbooks and the overarching theme of adapting to constant change.

By taking incremental steps toward digital transformation, you can build resilience in your business to drive results today and be ready for tomorrow. No matter where you start in your digital transformation journey, your actions can pay immediate dividends for your business. They can help you create marketing-driven business growth and put agility into your plan.

You’re future-proofing your business by leveraging online channels.
