  • How are you measuring the effectiveness and updating these policies?

Consistency
Goal: Make content and conversations compelling regardless of platform.
Questions:
  • Are you committed to delivering optimal experiences to every user, regardless of platform?
  • Have you developed a strategy for doing so with IT?
  • Have you decided with Legal how to protect, track and manage access to corporate IP across all user platforms?
  • How does your website and marketing content look on smartphones and tablets? How do your competitors' look?

Conversion
Goal: Turn marketing content into more customers, leads, revenues, profit, and positive perception.
Questions:
  • Are you able to pull valuable data from your content and online experience management solutions? Are you able to turn that data into useful analysis and reports?
