The true power of data lies in your ability to distill insights from it and use these to drive action

From being a by-product of a business activity or process with limited added value, data is now perceived as a corporate asset and an enabler for strategic decision-making.

At The House of Marketing, we consider being a data-driven marketing organization means being able to gather, cluster and analyse all relevant data to distill the right insights which can drive your strategic marketing decisions. We accompany and support organizations that are not yet at the full potential of their data-driven strategy. We help you along your journey to get the full potential out of your data.

Data Maturity Audit

Don’t know where or how to get started? The first step is to get an understanding of your current Data Maturity. Through our audit, we assess your company’s challenges in becoming (more) data-driven. It gives you a structured overview of your current data deployment over different dimensions whereas each dimension is a vital part of a mature data-driven company.

In the 2018 edition of our Yearly Marketing Survey, we deep-dived into the different building blocks of data maturity:

  • How data is used in the company

  • How the data is stored throughout the company

  • What kind of goals companies want to reach with their data analyses

  • How the data governance is organized

  • Which kind of tools are used to follow up KPIs

Do you have troubles leveraging your company's data & analytics opportunities with a comprehensive strategy? Discover the 5 steps your company needs to take to become more data-driven: 



KPIs & Metrics

“A KPI is a metric, but a metric is not necessarily a KPI”. 

First time right is rarely the case when applying data in your marketing strategy, and once right, chances are high you will need to adapt quite soon.  So it’s all about measuring.

We can help you to either develop reports that give you the correct insights within your marketing technology stack or build dashboards across your tools that reflect your ROMI or follow your company’s KPIs and the effect your marketing strategy has on them.

Surely you have already faced the implementation of new regulations. Usually you trust your legal department, or compliance, or IT, or any other to ‘take care of it’. However, when it comes to GDPR you will need to get actively involved.

New regulations rarely provide corporations with new benefits, however mastering your data could unlock multiple opportunities.

We can either guide you in a company-wide roadmap towards GDPR compliance or focus on the implementation within your marketing department. Our GDPR Framework and our GDPR certified expert are focused  on the core three principles of GDPR: Transparency, Accountability & Accessibility.
