You might have less to spend on marketing technology (martech) this year, or you might be one of the lucky few with a higher martech budget. Either way, once you’ve invested in a new solution, you want it to be as easy as possible to set up and use. Fast, hassle-free implementation is the crucial first step to achieving rapid time to value (TTV).
This blog briefly summarizes why so many martech implementations fall short, and demonstrates how Insider’s expertise and strategic approach can streamline the process—and remove the headache.
Martech complexity is a huge challenge
Where most martech implementations fall short
How Insider’s expert approach to implementation solves these challenges
Implementation takes time, but it can be done without the headache
Lorsqu’il s’agit d’investir dans les technologies marketing, le défi n’est pas seulement le coût, mais aussi la complexité. Prenons l’exemple du commerce de détail : Bien que 66 % des marques de retail aient augmenté leurs dépenses en marketing digital en 2022, 1 spécialiste du marketing retail sur 5 a déclaré que sa technologie marketing ne répondait pas à ses besoins. Parallèlement, plus de 60 % des spécialistes du marketing ont déclaré que leur pile martech était trop complexe.
Une mise en œuvre et une intégration rapides sont essentielles pour optimiser le retour sur investissement et le coût total d’un nouvel outil ou d’une nouvelle plateforme technologique. Les marques ne peuvent pas se permettre une intégration qui prend des semaines, et encore moins des mois.
“Habituellement, l’intégration prend des mois. Avec Insider, cela a pris moins de deux semaines.”
— Robson Privado, Co-Fondateur et COO de MadeiraMadeira.
For Robson Privado, Co-Fondateur et COO de MadeiraMadeira, une implémentation rapide ne consiste pas seulement à faire en sorte que les équipes concernées soient opérationnelles sur la plateforme le plus tôt possible – il s’agit aussi de réduire le coût réel du processus de déploiement.
L’intégration s’appuie généralement sur des équipes techniques et des équipes de produits. “Ce sont des équipes très coûteuses”, explique M. Robson. “Lorsque l’intégration est facile, elle est beaucoup plus efficace et le ROI est meilleur.
Avec des ressources de plus en plus limitées, les marques ne peuvent plus se permettre de continuer à dépenser de l’argent et du temps pour de nouveaux outils de marketing. A moins qu’elles ne sachent que la solution peut fournir un ROI rapide et que sa mise en œuvre ne prendra pas des mois. Plus le processus d’intégration est simple, moins il y a de perte de temps et de ressources. Et c’est une grande victoire pour tout le monde.
Malheureusement, le chemin de l’implémentation n’est pas toujours facile. Plongeons-nous dans les frustrations les plus courantes auxquelles les marques sont confrontées lors de la mise en œuvre de nouveaux systèmes et outils :
Il y a beaucoup de choses qui pourraient mal tourner – ou qui tournent mal – pendant l’implémentation Mais il s’agit souvent de la première expérience du client avec votre marque, il est donc essentiel de bien démarrer les choses. Et comme le dit Paul Philip, fondateur et PDG d’Amity : “Il est difficile de se remettre d’une mauvaise expérience d’intégration.”
Chez Insider, nous nous efforçons de rendre l’implémentation aussi simple que possible pour nos clients. C’est une philosophie que nous appelons en interne notre philosophie Zero Frustration. Et c’est cette philosophie que bon nombre de nos partenaires apprécient le plus.
“Our favorite thing about Insider is the ease of use and integration of their tools. At first, we were hesitant about getting these tools because we did not want to spend a lot of time trying to understand the product and implement them to our existing app. However, the implementation process was very easy and the team supported us at every step.”
