Marketing-Led Post-COVID-19 Growth Strategies

Businesses are laying off workers, shutting their doors (some permanently), and struggling to react to the radical destruction that coronavirus (COVID-19) is doing to our society and communities. Most have already sustained massive damage, and we still have yet to see the scope of impact of the global pandemic that has upended the globe. Any return to normalcy may seem far-off, but sales and marketing are on the front lines of restarting the economy. When the dust settles, we have a responsibility to turn our shock and grief into fierce determination, and lead the charge of responsible, strategic, sustainable future growth. However, there’s no team better suited to lead that charge than the marketing department. Marketers are uniquely positioned to provide creative solutions to aid their organization in times of change and chart a course for navigating success.

Of course it's difficult.

Seth Godin Blog

Students choose to attend expensive colleges but don''t major in engineering because the courses are killer.  Of course it is. Doing more than the customary amount of customer service is expensive, time-consuming and hard to sustain. Raising money for short-term urgent projects is easier than finding support for the long, difficult work of changing the culture and the infrastructure.

Of course they’re wrong

Seth Godin Blog

But of course, everyone else is right as well. It seems like our take on culture is that we’re right. We shake hands properly, use a napkin properly, speak up at events problerly and even greet one another on the street properly. When I’m in a foreign city, I’m always amazed at how (friendly/offputting/aloof/intimate) everyone else is. They’re the home team, so they’re even more right than I am.

Of course it could be better

Seth Godin Blog

That’s not the question, not really. The question is, “what are you going to do about it?” ” And, to follow up, “what effort are you willing to put in to make it better?” ” If you’re not willing to make it better, it’s probably going to stay the way it is.

Just about every successful initiative and project starts from a place of replication. The chances of being fundamentally out of the box over the top omg original are close to being zero. A better question to ask is, "have you ever done this before?" Or perhaps, "are the people you are seeking to serve going to be bored by this?".

Charting a Course to an Optimized Payment Platform

BCG

Article Wednesday, April 06, 2016. For banks around the world, a centralized, standardized payment platform is quickly becoming a must-have, not a nice-to-have. The more streamlined the transaction platform, the more cost-efficient and nimble banks can be in responding to regulatory changes, threats from traditional and nontraditional competitors, and heightened customer expectations.
