The Pursuit of Results-Centric Digital Marketing: What Is Real Impact?

The Pursuit of Results-Centric Digital Marketing: What Is Real Impact?

Join the Quest to Understand Digital Marketing Impact

Digital marketing isn’t just about crunching numbers and strategizing in a vacuum. At Intero Digital, we’re into digging deeper. We’re curious about what really moves the needle for small and mid-market businesses.  

The tricky part is that success is a moving target, so finding the silver bullet is like chasing the end of a rainbow. 

(In my best Lady Whistledown voice) But, dear reader, who doesn’t love a good chase?

Crowdsourcing Insights: The Great Revenue Mystery

Earlier this year, we surveyed marketing directors, VPs, and CMOs to better understand their goals and pain points. Eighty percent said revenue is their top goal. No surprises there.

But it’s also their biggest challenge. 

The other major challenge is that results are nuanced and real impact means different things to different people. But because I am a true crime junkie and a nosy marketer (💁‍♀️), I have compiled a roster of marketers from all different industries to ask the question: What does impact mean to you?

Defining Impact: It’s Not Just About the Benjamins

A few years into my role at Intero Digital, we set out to revolutionize our SEO strategies. At this point, industry standards were depressingly low. Like, keyword-stuffing, spam-tactic depressing. We had always aimed higher but wanted more. How can we help our clients dominate their market? How can we set the standard for SEO?  

To achieve this, we needed more than just visibility; we needed to predict search engine behavior. So we developed and patented InteroBOT®. Over a decade and 100+ iterations later, InteroBOT® has helped generate over $1 billion in additional revenue for our clients. That’s impact. 

On a personal note, August 9, 2016, marked a pivotal change for me. Since that day, I’ve been more interested in the intent, feelings, and motivation behind the human psyche. I’ve been more curious and empathetic. I’m also a lot more patient. That day changed the trajectory of my life and how I think. That was the day my daughter was born. That is impact. 

So what really is impact? A feeling, a figure, a life-changing event? In any case, it has become my mission to find out. 🕵️‍♀️
