Complexity and Cost the Biggest Barriers to Digital Marketing Transformation, New Study Reveals

‘Digital Marketing Transformation Survey: Executive Report’, a new study from Stein IAS, has revealed that while 81% of B2B companies believe that digital marketing transformation is important, over three quarters believe it is a highly complex and costly (41%) process. To help B2B companies, Stein IAS has launched The Post Modernizer, an app to simplify and fast track the development of advanced, martech driven transformation roadmaps.

Conducted across major B2B sectors, the ‘Digital Marketing Transformation Survey: Executive Report’ is the first large-scale quantitative study (450 mid to large-sized companies, globally) to understand how marketers and global organizations approach digital marketing transformation. The report also details the agency’s Digital Marketing Transformation Framework (DMTF). The DMTF is a structured strategic process, which alongside Stein IAS, enables brands to prioritize and align the many elements of digital transformation with overall business strategies, and develop a high-level digital marketing three-year roadmap and related action plans.

Marc Keating, Chief Innovation Officer at Stein IAS, says: “It’s no surprise that although there is an intense interest in digital marketing transformation, the majority of organizations are yet to develop and implement a strategy. Digital marketing transformation is a journey and one that can only be realized with benchmarking and an actionable road-mapping and strategic planning framework. Our B2B Digital Marketing Transformation initiative has been launched to provide brands and marketers alike with exactly that.”
