Marketersânow you can tap into competitive intelligence FASTER and CHEAPER than your competitors.
If youâre a business owner or brand manager, you already know how expensive and time consuming it can be to create a competitive analysis report that benchmarks how well your company is doing against the competition. Even a research study limited to the online channel alone can take 3, 4, even 5 weeks to complete â and thatâs assuming you have the staff with the expertise to do the job. And if you outsource the research to a consulting firm, you're looking at a bill in the tens of thousands of dollars.
Need to update your report six months down the line? You gotta start the entire process all over again!
Yeah, this puts marketers in a real bind. If you can't gather competitive insights quickly, easily and affordably -- how can you be effective as a marketer? How can you exploit the weaknesses of your competitors? How can you achieve your revenue goals?
Well, now there is a solution. Work with Heardable--choosing from one of two options:
There is an old saying that goes something like this; be ready when opportunity knocks, because it may only knock once and you need to get to the door quickly.
What this means to a marketer is that they must be ready to take advantage of any situation that unfolds before them. Unfortunately, even the best prepared marketing pros often find it hard to prioritize their strategies and tactical initiatives in a fast, effective, and efficient manor. Heardable's solution? Let us help you build an opportunity roadmap to guide you.
You see, once we clearly understand your goals, your marketing budget, your resources, and where you stand in the marketplace, Heardable can complete a quadrant analysis grid for you that will help you focus on those activities that:
- Are easiest to execute
- Cost the least amount of time & money
- Likely to garner the highest return on your investment
The most attractive marketing opportunities [quadrant 1] can be flushed out into request for proposal documents (RFP's) that can be sent to marketing agencies to bid on.
Online marketing strategy
Developing a successful online marketing strategy is an essential part of your business success. In order to be effective online, you'll need to develop a strategic plan that includes:
- Your objectives
- Your goals
- Your strategies
- Your tactics
You will also need to properly assess your internal capabilities, expectations, and resources, such as:
- Business partners
- Agency support
- Revenue expectations
Your online marketing strategy would not be complete without a thorough review of the available channel, both offline and online, at your disposal, such as:
- Social media
- Paid search
- Organic search
- Internet display advertising
- Blogging & microblogging
- Affiliate marketing
- Content syndication
- Direct mail
- Event advertising/sponsorship
- Outdoor display
Why look at offline marketing if you are putting together your online marketing strategy? Well, there may be integrated cross-marketing opportunities to consider that can boost response rates without increasing costs or have an adverse impact on the efficiency of your current campaigns. Adding custom PURLs (personalized URL) to your direct mail campaigns is one example. Or adding an Internet call to action in your television commercials, along with your 800 phone number, is another example.
And it goes without saying that you'll need to devise a way to measure, monitor, optimize, improve, and re-measure your performance over time, within each channel, to ensure success.

CEO - Heardable, Inc.
Delta Air Lines has been named the most effective domestic airline brand online by Heardable, Inc., a brand performance rating platform whose mission is to measure the world's brands. Delta beat competitors such as JetBlue and Southwest to take the top position, which was calculated by a thorough examination of hundreds of online brand variables. Delta's brand health score of 580 out of 1,000 beat its nearest competitor, JetBlue, by 22 points. Shockingly, Delta's performance was 51% higher than United Airlines, whose score of 284 out of 1,000 did not even make the top 10 list.
The report includes in-depth 'online brand scoring' analysis on each of the 10 rated airline carriers, plus a snapshot comparison to several other industry categories.
"Delta has obviously put in a lot of effort into social marketing over the past year, and that effort is now being rewarded," adds John Sharp, director of Heardable, Inc. "You need to get a lot of things right to win the top spot in a competitive sector like airlines - their brand management team deserves high marks."
