20 Oct The 6 Principles of Great Marketing Insights
In my career leading marketing insights functions for Fortune 100 organizations, I have learned that great insights leaders follow six simple, but critical principles when leading insights & research initiatives. Missing any of these factors means putting your insights investment and ultimately business decision at risk.
Be sure you:
- Answer an important business question
- Weigh the investment of research vs. the risk of making a decision without insights
- Stay focused on clear objectives throughout
- Include the right internal players early in the process
- Focus on the ‘so what’ implications
- Be comfortable this initiative will lead you to ask even more questions
Too often we hear of insights being used to confirm a hunch. Doing so can cast a shadow over the entire process. It’s important to stay open to the outcomes and direction well-constructed research can bring to your organization an objective.
