Marketing Services Groups Face Constant Pressure to Evaluate and Evolve their Organization
Date:6/7/2013

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., June 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marketing organizations are a key driver of organizational success.

But in the constantly evolving marketplace they operate in, marketing management leaders need to continually evaluate their scope of services, resources, organizational structure, and use of off-shore labor to ensure they reflect current needs and produce desired results.

A benchmarking study by research and consulting leader Best Practices, LLC found that 50 percent of companies participating in the study use a Marketing Shared Services (MSS) or similar structure to provide marketing services across their organization. And 80 percent of the "high performing" companies in the study use a MSS or a similar model. High-performing companies were identified by the time and cost of deliverables, weighted by the number of services provided, and a chapter of the study is devoted to the MSS model.  

"Marketing Services Excellence: Driving Costs Down & Effectiveness Up" is a 64-page study that probes how companies are effectively structuring and operating the Marketing Services function in an environment that is characterized today by increasing globalization and shrinking resources. The results will help marketing executives and managers identify winning strategies they can use to improve internal quality and effectiveness.

This cross-industry benchmarking study provides metrics and critical insights for evaluating the effectiveness of the Marketing Services/Operations function, including creative services, support services and market research & analytics services. The study objective was to develop comparative industry metrics for deliverables cost, lead time & quality, as well as for structure type, drivers of program effectiveness and the number and type of services provided at leading companies.

This report provides:

  • Comparative average industry metrics for cost and lead time required for 10 standardized Marketing Services deliverables including brochures, technical/white papers, web pages, print ads, direct mail, email, banners, data sheets, site refresh and web page translations
  • Successful cost-cutting practices that pay off for research participants
  • Key management practices that help promote global consistency across multiple services locations
  • Comparison of varying Marketing Services models including Marketing Shared Services, Center of Excellence and In-House Agencies
  • Organizational structure diagrams
  • Effective performance measures
  • Trends for outsourcing, off-shoring and funding of Marketing Services

The study is based on survey responses from 24 Marketing Services leaders from 23 companies from nine business sectors. Interviews were conducted with selected participants.
