Closeness is important for One to One Marketing.

10.3.7.2 One to One Marketing’s Internet Strategy

 

10.3.7.2.1 Embrace the Internet strategically

Success requires embracing the Internet strategically.  85 percent of the businesses that have an Internet presence simply show up, reacting to the Internet rather than first developing a strategic plan.  Most simply place brochures and promotional materials on an Internet site.  Many also accept resumes online, post job opportunities, call it a success, and move on.  This is a non-strategic reaction to the Internet, putting up a presence just for the sake of being there.  Little or no thought is given to the opportunities that the Internet presents.  Instead, it is viewed as simply another marketing vehicle or distribution channel.

An Internet strategy is much more than taking selected business processes from the past and applying them to the Internet or Intranet.  There is much deeper business value in these technologies.  Fully embracing the Internet means redefining One to One Marketing’s core competencies, developing new relationships with customers, and inter linking with new business partners to offer more complete solutions.  Truly successful companies look at the Internet as an opportunity to redefine the rules of business and the roles they play in providing new and better solutions.

 

In short, One to One Marketing must look beyond short-term, tactical responses to deeper strategic approaches, align our business goals with One to One Marketing’s Internet strategy, and act early.

By not developing a responsible, thorough, and strategic Internet plan, One to One Marketing will be unprepared and vulnerable, with little time to respond to new customer needs and business models.  Consider the consequences of the reactive versus the proactive approach, as illustrated in Figure below.

 

Without an Internet strategy, One to One Marketing limit the options and could be forced to react to keep from sinking.

 

Before One to One Marketing moving to step 2(Develop Success Criteria), One to One Marketing have to ask the following questions:

  • Is One to One Marketing’s business moving in the wrong direction as the Internet changes the assumptions of business?
  • Does One to One Marketing has the business and technology skills to understand where One to One Marketing need to be going?
  • Is One to One Marketing sufficiently informed to determine the proper strategy?
  • Does One to One Marketing has the appropriate Internet team in place to guide?
  • Has One to One Marketing embraced the Internet strategically, securing direction as well as endorsements from the staff?

 

These questions will challenge One to One Marketing to better understand the business, where One to One Marketing is currently, and where it has the potential to be.

 

10.3.7.2.2 Develop and accept new business assumptions.

One to One Marketing needs to understand the new operating environment. One to One Marketing need to develop new business models and assumptions, comparing and contrasting the old with the new, to determine the foundation on which One to One Marketing’s business is and will be based. One to One Marketing has to be looking at the capabilities of the Internet and extrapolating the implications relevant to One to One Marketing’sr business. This is a critical process.

 

Assumption              Old Model             New Model
Access to Market Limited playing field Levelling of playing field/ Access to market for both businesses and customers significantly increases
Barriers to Entry Significant barriers to                        Low barriers to entryentry Low barriers to entry
Agility Agility is recognised as important, but its incorporation is slow Agility becomes essential through recognition of proper relationships between customers, partners, and employees                      systems strategy is aproper relationships                        small piece of the                                 business solution partners, and employees
Virtualisation Virtualisation is an idea Degrees of virtualisation are realised 
Core Competency Initial recognition of strategic value of core competencies Strategic focus on corecompetencies is paramount due to increasing competition and ability to interlink with others
Value Proposition Value proposition for the customer changes slowly Value proposition for the customer constantly  changes with innovative products and services 
Ability to Change «Need to change» is recognised Continuous change must be realised to grow 
Strategic Drivers Marketing drives business strategies to a significant extent A combination of technology and marketing enables the new business strategies/The marketing function changes fundamentally 
Quality vs. Time to Market Quality of products isimportant Time to Market, in addition to quality, becomes more relevant/First to market with compelling differentiation provides dramatic competitive advantages 
Internet Adoption Internet business and systems strategy is a small piece of the business solution  Internet is a complementary business design element for a variety of business activities
Competition Moderate number of competitorscompetitors Large number of and more global competitors/Competitors come from new industries. 
Customisation Products are regionally customised   
Design Perspective Company-designed products Customer – designed products (virtual products) 
Internet’s Perceived Value Internet seen as another distribution channel Internet requires managers to rethink their business processes and create new kinds of customer solutions 
Business Partners Formal alliances, merger and acquisitions common New types of partners, interlinkers, who specialise and complement your value/Less-formal alliances are necessary for interlinking/They become opportunity based 
Software Success Factors Ease of use Architectural flexibility in the systems becomes the key business success factor 
Customers Needs and expectations change slowly Needs, expectations, and priorities change constantly as new services, virtual products, and choices become available. 

 

 

 

10.3.7.2.3 Envision complete customer-centric solutions.

The most successful Internet strategy offers a more complete, convenient, and timely solution for the customers than that available today.

For One to One Marketing to envision new customer solution, develop scenarios of the typical customers in One to One Marketing’s daily practices, incorporating products or services into the picture. What part of the complete solution can One to One Marketing offer, and how can One to One Marketing facilitate better solutions to keep One to One Marketings customer coming back? This approach will eventual force One to One Marketing to understand and define better One to One Marketing’s relevant core competencies and customer value within the context and the Internet.

 

10.3.7.2.4 Predict points of entry.

Points of entry are all of the possible routes potential customers might use to get to One to One Marketing’s site. They could be business partner (interlinking) sites, other product- or service-related Internet sites, or advertisements (both online and offline) One to One Marketing’s site is also the point of entry for other sites.

Points of entry initiate the customer scenario: the manner, method, site, or path customers follows to get to One to One Marketing’s site, content, functionality, and value proposition.

 

10.3.7.2.5 Redefine relevant core competencies.

One to One Marketing has to redefine the core competencies from the perspective of the Internet customer. One to One Marketing’s competencies depend on the evaluation of business and technology and might be one thing today, but something else tomorrow.

 

10.3.7.2.6 Experiment with innovative solutions.

There are business problems that Internet technology can solve, and, more important, business opportunities it can create. Internet facilitates communication with suppliers, but it also creates new opportunities by offering more personalised and complete solutions to a global audience. As One to One Marketing evaluate relevant core competencies, One to One Marketing need to explore new products and services opportunities.

If One to One Marketing don’t provide a convenient, timely, and highly valued solution, someone else definitely will.

 

10.3.7.2.7 Define One to One Marketing’s value proposition.

The value of One to One Marketing’s offering to the customer must be clear. Is the product or service secure, interactive, educational, or proactive?

As One to One Marketing develop the value proposition; continually review customer expectations and priorities. What do One to One Marketing think the customer will value?

 

The process for creating value in the physical and virtual worlds is not the same. The most successful Internet value propositions take into account four components.

  • Relevant core competence (In the eyes of One to One Marketing’s customers) and compelling solution differentiation
  • The value of inter linking business partners
  • Customers’ changing needs and expectations
  • Internet-enabled business capabilities

 

10.3.7.2.8 Explore profit models.

The Internet is often characterised as the world’s first zero-billion-money industry. Everyone is convinced there is money to be made, but few are successful.

How will One to One Marketing recapture value and profit on the Internet with innovative customer solutions? Will value be recaptured through expert advice, new information, or possible leads that One to One Marketing bring to other businesses via the Internet? Will linking with appropriate business partners recapture it? Will it be recaptured through the non-Internet channels?

Probably will One to One Marketing’s profit models change over time. However, they must always be based on the value added to enrich the customer solution.

One to One Marketing has for instance several opportunities as:

  • Advertising space (Netscape)
  • Links to partners (BayNet)
  • Providing a more complete customer solution (Geosystems)
  • Electronic agents (Verity)
  • Customized solutions (NETCOM)
  • Information / knowledge provisioning (IBM infosage)
  • Innovative products / services (NetstockDirect)
  • Transaction fulfilment (IBM InfMarket)
  • Provision of qualified leads (InfoSeek)
  • Subscriptions (Wall Street Journal)
  • Selling side strategies (Industry.Net)
  • Intermediaries (IBM WorldAvenue)

 

 

10.3.7.2.9 Identify points of departure.

At this point One to One Marketing have completed much of the strategy analysis and determined the circumstances in which customer will enter One to One Marketing’s circle of influence. However, One to One Marketing must still consider how a customer will exit One to One Marketing’s Internet-based product or service.

 

One to One Marketing must consider the following questions:

  • What can’t One to One Marketing provide, or what can someone else provide better to complement One to One Marketing’s service or product?
  • To complete their solution, where would users naturally want to go next after they received value from One to One Marketing’s site?
  • What new partners or interl inkers do One to One Marketing need to develop?
  • Does One to One Marketing want transparent or non-transparent linking from One to One Marketing’s site?
  • What customer information if any will One to One Marketing forward to One to One Marketing’s inter linking partner?

10.3.7.2.10 Plan a phasing approach.

A phasing strategy is a necessary part of One to One Marketing’s Internet business strategy. Because One to One Marketing need to be early to market with an innovative solution, and phasing allows One to One Marketing to accomplish this. The Internet customer does not reward the second to market. But being early to market is only the beginning.

One to One Marketing want to plan and develop a phasing strategy designed to reach One to One Marketing’s business objectives and achieve One to One Marketing’s success criteria in stages. After the conclusion of each step or phase, the assumptions of One to One Marketing’s Internet business strategy should be reviewed. Measuring success at the end of each step will help One to One Marketing tune the strategy, guiding One to One Marketing in the most successful direction.

 

When One to One Marketing develop the phasing approach One to One Marketing will consider the following:

  • One to One Marketing begin with the end in mind and make each phase bring them closer to where One to One Marketing want to be.
  • Phasing allows One to One Marketing to identify where One to One Marketing want to go and develop checkpoints to assess One to One Marketing’s progress.
  • One to One Marketing will be clear on what they expect to achieve and learn from each phase.
