Global Food & Beverage Giant Uses Digital Marketing Journey to Stay Relevant in Changing Times
Over the past decade, the rise of digital initiatives has penetrated nearly every industry across various sectors. However, various organizations have yet to plan their digital transformation journeys and have found it difficult to understand consumer needs. A food and beverage giant was having difficulty finding ways to remain relevant during a shift in consumer needs. The client also wanted to maintain their brand as a trusted producer of foods. In order to do this, the client needed help with planning and implementing their digital marketing journey.
Our team focused on building a strong foundation for the client by establishing three pillars of change, which was tailored to the client’s long-term goals and objectives.
Step 1: Building a consumer-centric organization—In order for the client to understand their consumer’s needs, creating the optimum consumer experience should be the first step. We looked at incorporating this into the consumer journey with the optimum mix of channels, media, and personalized offerings.
Step 2: Introducing new skillsets—The client’s teams needed to look at upskilling their teams’ UI/UX, content, innovation, analytics and channels so that they would be able to reach their goals. We also looked at finding ways to encourage the client’s organization to open its mindset to new ideas, think broader than marketing, and continue to self-educate on new skills.
Step 3: Investing in the right marketing tech—Our team ensured that the right marketing platforms and technology stacks (Ad-Tech and Mar-Tech) would be incorporated to fit the organization’s infrastructure and needs. By choosing technology that fit the client’s needs, the client would be able to create a frictionless marketing environment.
By establishing three pillars of change, the client was able to start enacting specific use cases that would show signs of change in a short amount of time. This allowed the client to build confidence in their digital marketing journey and keep their eye on long-term goals. Oftentimes organizations hyper-focus on tactics (which do have their own merits when used at the right time) and push their organization’s overall goals to the wayside. This can make it difficult for organizations to find success in their own digital marketing journeys.
