Agile Marketing Metrics

  • Tracking and sharing sound agile metrics can reduce confusion and shine a light on the team's progress (and setbacks) throughout the development cycle.
  • it's important to track both business metrics and agile metrics. Business metrics focus on whether the solution is meeting the market need, and agile metrics measure aspects of the development process.
  • More than anything, this article is part of a larger, freely accessible and indexable series of content on Atlassian’s site called, “The Agile Coach”, which is a great example of a pillar content strategy
  • Five Agile Metrics You Won't Hate - Atlassian

Main Topic: “Turning Customers into More Customers”

The most trusted products and companies will win. ringing back word of mouth and testimonials. Helping you generate new customers from current customers.

Three parts:

  • Delivering value to your customers
    • Importance of delivering on your value proposition
    • Listening to customers… Why are they delighted, what can you learn?
    • How are you measuring customer delight? (share what we’re doing) - all companies are different.
    • Improvement is an “all-hands on deck” activity… marketing and sales should support.
  • Passive promoters
    • Implementing social proof on your website
    • Importance of online reviews
    • Having great case studies
    • Involving customers in marketing, webinars, and speaking opportunities
    • Ultimately, your best marketing is word of mouth / what your customers have to say about you.
    • Pro tips:
      • Go as far as you can for them “You said this to me, would you mind…”
      • Enable them to deliver the message you want them to deliver 
  • Active promoters
    • It’s about growing your sales force.
      • Your customers often hang around with more people like them that may buy from someone like you.
    • Referral programs
    • Affiliate
    • VAR / Partner programs

Common objections

  • Our customers don’t hang out with other customers… it’s a lie.
  • We can’t incentivize our customers (for whatever reason)... okay, but what can you do? What would make it valuable for them?
    • If it’s not money, can it be exclusive events or experiences? Lunch & learns? What else?
